Unified Police Department and Riverton City officials cut the ribbon on the new Riverton Precinct building Jan. 12. (The ceremony was held indoors because of bad weather). The two-floor building contains two interview rooms, a kids room, along with a domestic violence victims’ advocate office,  an Intox room, with offices for a detective sergeant, three detectives and a traffic office. Offices for the police chief and executive lieutenant are also located there. Downstairs features a squad room connected to a conference room which can be combined to make a large training room or emergency planning and operations area. Lower level restrooms include showers and locker space. The land for the police station was donated by Riverton City. UPD had previously leased office space in Riverton. The new building is located at 12810 South Redwood Road.
