Jones, CCCD Board of Trustees president; LoWanda Green, CCCD Board of Trustees clerk; Janna Zurita, City of Compton councilmember (District 1); Linda Owens, CCCD director of facilities, planning and operations; and Keith Curry, CCCD CEO and president of Compton College.

The $4.7 million construction project, which included demolition of the previous Kindred/Foster Care Building at the southeast corner of campus, was made possible with funds from the 2002 Measure CC local general obligation bond. The state-of-the-art building will incorporate natural lighting through Solatubes, cool-roof technology, and efficient lighting, heating and air conditioning control systems.

The completely new Public Safety Building will be 5,550 square feet, and construction will also include a small police vehicle parking lot. The building will accommodate a front lobby with a service window connected to the dispatch area, staff offices, an open office area, meeting room, storage areas, locker/shower rooms, interview rooms, armory, watch station, break room, custodial room, exterior storage, and room for evidence storage.

The architect of record for this project is Little Diversified, the construction manager is PCM3, and the project contractor is TELACU.

The CCCD would like to thank the residents of all communities in the District for understanding and supporting its facilities needs over the years through the 2002 and 2014 bond measures.
