Just-retired Lt. Mark Munari of the Cheyenne Police Department has overseen the construction of the new Cheyenne Public Safety Center, a three-story, almost 100-thousand square foot facility in downtown Cheyenne, for several years now, from the planning phase over 7 years ago to its eventual completion last year.

Now retired, he was re-hired by the Police Chief to keep overseeing the building, which houses all Cheyenne Police Department and county dispatch operations, Cheyenne Fire and Rescue administration and the city’s Emergency Operations Center. He gave several CSR members an incredibly-informative tour on May 23.

The building, which once housed a succession of Cheyenne auto dealers, features exposed metal beams and brick pillars from the original 1920s structure, walls decorated with reclaimed wood, state-of-the-art technology and ergonomic workspaces.

The building also has a lot of unfinished space set aside for future growth.

Munari emphasized they are excited about the efficient layout of the new building compared to the old location on Capitol Avenue.
