SF to celebrate grand opening of new Public Safety Building

The Police Department’s brass may have already moved into its new headquarters in Mission Bay, but that didn’t prevent management from planning an official grand-opening ceremony for the facility at Third and Mission Rock streets.

With Mayor Ed Lee, Police Chief Greg Suhr and other city officials, the $243 million building will officially be opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning.

</p> The new Public Safety Building will also house the new Southern district police station and the new Fire Station 4.

The project, which broke ground in October 2011, was funded through a voter-approved bond.
