The Arlington Heights Police Department's new station was awarded Public Works Project of the Year by local chapters of the American Public Works Association.
The two-level, 70,500-square-foot building at 200 E. Sigwalt St. was recognized by the APWA Suburban Branch in the category of structures between $5 million and $25 million. It then won in the same category for the APWA Chicago Metro Chapter.
In a news release Tuesday, police department officials lauded their colleagues Cris Papierniak, the village's assistant director of public works, and Charles Perkins, the director of planning and community development, for their contributions to the project.
The police headquarters opened in December 2018 in place of the former 38-year-old police building, which officials said was cramped and outdated.
