WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Midwestern State University's Police Department is starting the new school year in a new building on Eureka Circle.

Parking permits, dispatch, offices, everything under one roof with more space.

Chief Patrick Coggins said there is a lot of good things about the move.

 “We’re not having to use the same space to double up on some of the functions that we had to at our older building,” said Chief Coggins. “For instance our locker room and our workroom doubled as an interview room for when we had to interview witnesses and victims.”

While it is located on Eureka circle, the perimeter of the campus, Chief Coggins said that does not change their response time.

“Officers are still on patrol, in the vehicles on and around campus,” he said.

He adds they have easy access to three of the campuses main roads and are still operating 24/7, 365.

“There are always police officers on patrol and a dispatcher on duty,” Chief Coggins said.

Julie Gaynor, MSU’s Director of Marketing and Public Information, said the move has been on their radar for some time.

The old police station and Bridwell Courts are now in the process of being torn down and will soon house the university fleet and facilities shops.

“It has allowed us to take this space and turn it into our Facilities Complex and add some parking as well,” said Gaynor.
