City leaders traveled to Colorado to get ideas for a new law and justice center, and find out what they're missing in the current one.
"We're just doing our best to identify the things that worked well for them, the things that we hadn't thought about, and the things that didn't work well" said Bozeman Police Chief Ron Price.
Chief Price, along with the assistant city manager and two police department representatives toured two city police facilities in Denver suburbs.
"There are lots of things that we recognize- before we went down there, but it just solidified it- the things that we truly need to do better here to provide service" he said.
Price said the tour gave them a good idea on what they want to include in Bozeman PD's new building- like a community meeting room, and separate victim and witness interview rooms.
And the buildings were 40,000 square feet compared to their space of 4,000.
"Some of the issues right now have to do with the speed at which each governmental group is willing to move forward" Chief Price said.
The county and city are moving at different paces.
Chief Price is on a new task force to tackle whether the city and county should build separate facilities or remain in the same building.
Either way, he said, they're ready to move forward.
The architect firm who designed the facilities they toured is the same one who'll design the new police facility.
Chief Price said they'll hold a meeting on Tuesday to start the design process.
