This new South Patrol station will only be about 2-1/2 miles from the recently opened Metro Patrol station in the 7700 block of Prospect.
This new station will contain public as well as police facilities- which also included a "backup 911 center" according to the KC-MO Police press release.
Completion of the station is set for 2013.
