Take a virtual tour of Plano’s new northwest police substation



PLANO, TX – The Plano Police Department’s new Northwest Substation has opened but instead of a traditional open house, a virtual tour of the building has been made available.

The new substation at 4640 McDermott Road (the corner of McDermott and Robinson roads) opened last week. However, COVID-19 concerns prevented the police department from having a traditional open house. As an alternative, the police department partnered with Plano TV to create a virtual tour of the substation.

The 23,172 square-ft. building was built to improve services for a growing northwest section of the city, according to an announcement from the department. The substation will provide closer access for residents reporting crimes, obtaining copies of reports and other police services.

A total of 105 Plano police personnel — sworn and civilian — will work out of the new facility. The building features officer workspaces, a briefing room, a classroom and an evidence room. There is also a community room for public use.

The project was part of a 2017 Bond Election for public safety.
