CINCINNATI -- City officials outlined their plans to move District 5 police employees out of their headquarters following health concerns related to the building.
The department will move District 5's non-patrol function personnel to the Youth Services Section building at 1201 Stock St. in Camp Washington, according to a memo from City Manager Harry Black. To make room, Youth Services personnel would be moved to the old District 3 headquarters at 3201 Warsaw Ave. in East Price Hill, which is currently unoccupied.
Thirty-four District 5 employees and 19 Youth Services employees would be moved under that plan. Officials estimated it would take between three and four months and cost as much as $260,500.
The department could also move as many as 77 other personnel to the Warsaw Avenue building, mostly from the Traffic Unit, Operational Support Unit and Canine Squad, according to the memo. Officials estimated that would add $25,000 to the cost of moves.
