The Village of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, placed its police station inside the Civic Center four decades ago. At the time, planners believed the construction of a better station was imminent. More than 30 years later, it was still there — in an 11,000 square-foot space that prohibited efficient work flow. Community members, police and suspects all entered through the same parking lot and interviews were conducted next to administrative offices. There were obvious safety and privacy concerns about this arrangement and a new, improved station was long overdue.
