Metro Nashville Police

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A community meeting is planned next week to discuss the possible construction and relocation of Metro police administrative headquarters.

The potential new location of police headquarters could be moved to the Metro-owned property located at 600 Murfreesboro Pike, adjacent to the forthcoming Family Justice Center.

“We believe this location would be a great fit for the police department and the neighborhood, but we want to hear from local area residents and the community at-large before moving forward with the project,” said Mayor Barry. “Community engagement is a critical part of the governing process, and by bringing more voices to the table we can see better results for the citizens of Davidson County.”

The meeting will be held on January 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Trevecca University’s Tarter Student Activity Center .

Mayor Barry and other Nashville officials will all be in attendance.

Metro police’s current headquarters is located in the Criminal Justice Center on Second Avenue North.
