When designing a site for a police station or any mission-critical building a dual role of protection and aesthetics is important.
Seven years ago, on July 8, 2016, Ballwin officer Mike Flamion was shot in the line of duty while conducting a traffic stop. On Saturday, the community and the Ballwin police department eagerly gathered to dedicate its new police station in his honor. Every officer has a DSN, a serial number. 302 is Mike Flamion’s serial number, and the new police facility’s address is 302 Kehrs Mill Road.
Construction on the state-of-the-art police facility began last spring. The project represents a major upgrade from the current facility that’s not only outdated and too small but also lacks many of the modern amenities standards of a city police department.
