A new Department of Public Safety (DPS) Headquarters is heading to Rankin County following the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration’s awarding of a $33.7 million contract to AnderCorp.
The facility will serve to consolidate and localize DPS functions with the addition of several divisions that will be located in the main building.
These divisions include:
- DPS Administration
- Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol
- Mississippi Bureau of Investigation
- Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics
- Mississippi Office of Homeland Security
- Commercial Transportation Enforcement Division
- Public Safety Planning
- Support Services Divisions
- Crime Stoppers
- Capitol Police
- Driver Service Bureau
“The Legislature providing this funding shows their strong commitment and support for public safety and security for all Mississippians. DPS will significantly benefit from having centrally located divisions that will provide operational proficiency to the safety of our state,” said Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, Sean Tindell. “We are excited to commence construction and glad to have a highly respected general contractor leading the construction of this historic undertaking.”
The Mississippi Department of Public Safety is currently headquartered in Jackson.
