KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Think you have the perfect name for the soon-to-open police station for the East Patrol?

Residents are invited to a public hearing to consider whether the East Patrol Division Station and Crime Lab Campus, or an individual part of the campus, should carry a name other than East Campus. The campus is currently under construction at 27th Street and Prospect Avenue. The public hearing will take place from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, at the Robert J. Mohart Multipurpose Center, 3200 Wayne Ave.

City officials will be on hand to listen to public recommendations and comments. This hearing will begin a public process to examine whether a name should be attached to the campus, as well as who could be honored and why. If a name is given to the facility, it would mark the first time any KCMO police station is named in honor of an individual.

The East Patrol Division Station and Crime Lab Campus will have a significant economic impact on Kansas City’s eastside citizens and businesses, while also benefiting the city’s taxpayers. The East Campus represents an unprecedented investment in the Third District of Kansas City. Construction began on this $74 million project earlier this year, which is scheduled for completion by winter 2015-2016. The facilities are scheduled to open in early 2016.

The East Campus is being built with the Public Safety Sales Tax approved by Kansas City voters in 2002 and renewed in 2010. The new East Campus will feature a police division station, a state-of-the-art crime lab and a property and evidence depository.
