Officers with the Harrison Police Department say that the agency has long outgrown its current headquarters building and are seeking to build a new facility with the aid of a half-cent sales tax passed in 2014.

According to KY3-TV, the department has nearly three times the number of officers now than when the building was constructed in the middle of the last century, forcing the agency to convert some of its jail cells into offices. There are also issues with the electrical wiring and leaks in the roof.

The department aims to build a new headquarters that will also house the town's fire department.
