Building Tours Overview
The Fremont Police Department offers tours of the building for education purposes to groups affiliated with an organization such as scouts or schools.  The purpose of the building is to show visitors the functions of the Police Department Units. Groups of 5- 20 individuals are led through the facility while describing each area. Each tour lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour, ending with a peek into a Patrol vehicle and demonstration of the lights and sirens.  Tour requests for individuals or adult groups cannot be honored.

Groups are escorted through the Police Building stopping at the Dispatch Center, Report Writing Room, Briefing Room and the Crime Lab.  The tour guide presents fun facts about each department in the building and the tour ends with a look inside a Patrol vehicle, complete with lights and sirens. The group should feel free to ask questions.
