The City of Claremont has been working for the past fifteen years exploring options for a new Police Facility due to the age and condition of the existing building. The current Police Station was built in 1972 and no longer meets State and Federal building standards nor does it fit the needs of a modern police force working 24/7. Since its construction, Claremont’s Police Department has more than doubled in size. While the City has adapted the building to house the additional personnel the building, the City can no longer modify the building to serving the growing needs of the department.

On April 24, 2015, the City Council unanimously voted to place a ballot measure on the November 3, 2015 ballot asking voters to approve a Parcel Tax to fund the construction of a new Police Facility. The Parcel Tax measure failed to pass. Following its failure of Measure PS, then Mayor Corey Calcaycay formed a 15-member Citizens Ad Hoc Committee to review the Police Facility proposal including the location, cost, size, and funding of the facility. In June 2017, the Ad Hoc Committee presented its final recommendations to the City Council. The City Council directed staff to host a series of meetings to gather community feedback on the proposal and financing mechanism. The City held four community meetings and conducted a survey to gather the community’s input on a preferred funding mechanism. Based on the findings of the outreach campaign, the City Council selected a General Obligation Bond and voted to place a ballot measure on the June 5, 2018 general election.
