LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- The UW-La Crosse campus police have a new facility. The new location is easier for students to access.
It also includes a laboratory to process evidence and interview rooms. The building will also have a self serve kiosk to let students pay parking tickets or begin incident reports. And there is a separate part of the facility to process intoxicated people.
"A person that is under the influence and may provide a risk to the public comes in to a very confined part of the building, is processed in that area, interviewed in that area, issued their summons or prepared for transport to the jail in that area," said Scott Rohde, the chief of campus police.
The new building costs more than $11 million. It was funded by parking fees and fines, permit costs and lot rentals. The old police building will be torn down and a new student center will be put in its place.
