    COURT ROOM/PD UPGRADE SPECIFICATIONS-EXPLAINED

    -REPAINT THE ENTIRE INTERIOR-2 BATHROOMS, SQUAD ROOM, COURT ROOM, EQUIPMENT ROOM AND THE GYM ROOM.

    -REPLACE ALL FLOORING WITH SOME TYPE OF CARPET SQUARES.  PREFERABLY THE SQUARE PRE-STICK TYPE THAT CAN BE REPLACED WHEN DAMAGED. BATHROOM FLOORING IS FINE.

    -REPLACE ALL CEILING TILE IN THE SQUAD ROOM AND THE GYM ROOM.

    -COURT ROOM NEEDS:

    *NEW CHAIRS THAT CAN STACK AND BE MOVED TO REPLACE THE OLD WOODEN PEW TYPE SEATING THAT IS COMING APART AND THE OLD BLUE CHAIRS THAT ARE TORN. THIS WILL ACTUALLY CREATE MORE ROOM WITHIN THE COURT ROOM.

    *BUILD A RISEN PLATFORM FOR THE JUDGE’S BENCH AND COURT CLERK DESK TO AFFORD A BETTER VANTAGE POINT AND SECURITY FOR BOTH THE JUDGE AND THE CLERK. BUILD A SECURITY SHORT WALL IN FRONT OF THE JUDGES BENCH TO AFFORD MORE SECURITY AND SEPARATE THE DEFENDANTS AND ATTORNEYS FROM THE JUDGE AND CLERK.

    *A NEW BENCH/DESK FOR THE JUDGE THAT IS ACTUALLY FUNCTIONAL THAT HAS DRAWERS AND AN AUDIO/VIDEO CONTROL BOX TO ALLOW VIEWING OF EVIDENTIARY CAMERA FOOTAGE WHEN THE NEED ARISES.

    *HAVE SHELVING ON THE PLATFORM TO ORGANIZE AND STORE ALL OF TH PAPERWORK AND CASE INFORMATION FOR THE JUDGE AND CLERK.

    *CLOSE IN, AND MAKE SECURE, THE FRONT COURT ROOM ENTRANCE LOBBY AND HAVE A SECURITY WINDOW IN PLACE.

    *REPLACE THE CUBICLE TYPE HALF WALL IN THE BACK OF THE COURT ROOM THAT SEPARATES THE CHIEFS OFFICE, LTS OFFICE, EVIDENCE ROOM, EVIDENCE LOCKERS AND ACCESSORIES WITH A PERMANENT SHEETROCK HALF WALL AND BUILD A DESK STYLE PLATFORM THE LENGTH OF THE WALL ALONG WITH BOX STYLE SHELVING TO ALLOW THE ORGANIZATION OF THE EVIDENCE EQUIPMENT THAT IS SITTING ON TABLES AND THE FLOOR AT THE MOMENT.

    *TRY TO CONFIGURE A HOLDING CELL INTO THE MIX OF ALL OF THIS. JUDGES CONCERN IS WHEN SOMEONE WILL BE GOING TO JAIL FROM COURT AND NOT HAVING SOMEWHERE TO PLACE THEM UNTIL COURT IS CONVENED.

    -SQUAD ROOM NEEDS:

    *PLACE A KITCHEN CABINET/COUNTER TOP ON THE BACK WALL WITH A KITCHEN SINK AND STORAGE CABINETS ABOVE.

    *PLACE A SMALL STORAGE WALL CABINET IN BOTH BATHROOMS.

    *WE WILL REMOVE THE CUBICLE WALL AND MOVE THE COMPUTER SERVER TO OUR EQUIPMENT ROOM, THIS WILL OPEN UP THE SQUAD ROOM AND ALLOW FOR A COUPLE MORE DESKS FOR THE OFFICERS TO WORK FROM.   WE NEED TO ADD A COUPLE MORE DESKTOP COMPUTERS, A COUPLE MORE PHONE LINES, A COUPLE MORE DATA PORT OUTLETS AND SOME NEW SHELVING OR BOOKCASES.

    *REPLACE THE TORN UP AND WORN OUT SMALL CONFERENCE TABLE WITH A SLIGHTLY LARGER TABLE THAT WILL BE BETTER UTILIZED.
