BY REBECCA BENNETT — On May 4, the Hyattsville City Council approved the renovation of 3505 Hamilton Street—the former BB&T building—in preparation for being home base to the Hyattsville City Police Department.

The City of Hyattsville held a February community meeting near the site earlier in which nearby community members expressed support of the move.

A city memo said there are opportunities for a public meeting space, an emergency operations center, and short term uses, which include auxiliary administrative offices and services.

The city said it plans for the police department to relocate to the former BB&T building no later than Oct. 2018.
