BRPD begins move into new headquarters

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Baton Rouge Police Department will begin to move into its new headquarters Monday.

The department's new home is the former Woman's Hospital on Airline Highway. Officials said inmates will provide much of the labor.

This is only the first phase of a long process. The city purchased the 24-acre campus for $10 million and plans to convert the site into a new law enforcement complex.
