The Huntsville Police Department is hoping their new, more visible location in north Huntsville could help prevent crimes.

For more than a decade, Huntsville's North Precinct has been renting a facility in a strip mall.

On Wednesday, they held a groundbreaking for their new $2 million dollar facility.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle says, "Our presence has not been known as much because we've been in a kind of an off street. This will put us in the center of the district. It's also a prominent presence, so it makes people think. If you go through and you see the police cars, you'll think about it."

The facility should be completed by May.
