Sumter, South Carolina
Sumter County’s new law enforcement center includes spaces for the sheriff, command staff, patrol, investigations, legal, training and development, child advocate departments, IT, and administration. The facility features a contemporary architectural style, which is contextually appropriate for the area. The design reflects the county’s desire to co-locate several departments that were previously located throughout the county in various buildings. A shared training room is featured in the center of the building with departments sited along the exterior walls. The facility also includes a secure lobby, secured employee parking lot, a backup emergency operation center, and emergency generator.
