GULF SHORES, Ala. (WKRG) — Gulf Shores is getting a new police department.
Preliminary ideas for an upgraded facility were laid out in the city’s recent town hall, where the mayor discussed what projects the $100 million available dollars in funding would go to. The money came from grants and the lodging tax. Projects must be completed by 2024.
Mayor Robert Craft called the improvements a “top priority.”
The city currently has a group conducting a feasibility study to determine the size and scope of what this project entails.
