The center was build to replace the aging sheriff's office facilities.

"The old building was never really designed to support county law enforcement functions," said Brian Thomas, Potter County Sheriff.

Officials said the new structure will consolidate all functions of county law enforcement into one location, which will enhance their ability to enforce the law.

Construction began in 2016 and was completed by Western Builders.

The total cost of the complex was around $14.2 million.
