Holly Springs Law Enforcement Center

The Holly Springs Police Department recently moved into a new law enforcement center that replaces the small, century-old building next to Town Hall that has been police headquarters for a decade.

The new law enforcement center is located at 750 Holly Springs Road, near the corner of Holly Springs and Bass Lake roads, and virtually across the road from Fire Station 1.

At more than 28,000 square feet, the new law enforcement center is several times larger than the previous police station.

The new station was needed not simply for additional room, but for space that is designed for the specialized needs of law enforcement. Examples include:
  • Interview rooms
  • Training rooms for firearms simulation and defensive tactics
  • Fitness room
  • Holding area for animals awaiting transport to the animal shelter
  • Enclosure in which K-9s can move about while their handlers are at the center
  • Secure evidence storage area
  • A larger 911 communications center for police, fire and emergency medical services to meet future needs
  • Conference room (for public meetings, Emergency Operations Center)
Holly Springs is one of only three municipalities in Wake County with its own 911 center. The previous police station could not accommodate the additional staffing that will be needed over time due to increasing calls for service and evolving state regulations. Call volumes at the center have doubled in the past 10 years.
