New Ballwin Police Station Gets a Unique Address

When designing a site for a police station or any mission-critical building, it is essential to balance protection and aesthetics.

Seven years ago, on July 8, 2016, Ballwin officer Mike Flamion was shot in the line of duty during a traffic stop. On Saturday, the community and the Ballwin Police Department gathered to dedicate their new police station in his honor. Every officer has a DSN, or serial number. Mike Flamion’s is 302, and the new police facility’s address is 302 Kehrs Mill Road.

Construction on this state-of-the-art facility began last spring. It represents a significant upgrade from the previous building, which was not only outdated and undersized but also lacked many modern amenities expected in a city police department.
