In response to the evolving needs of modern law enforcement, the Latvian State Police sought to move its employees to a new and modern facility. State Police has searched for a building that not only provides offices and meeting rooms, but also meet a long list of special requirements concerning location, access and space for interviews, interrogation rooms, detention, changing rooms, etc.

The Upmalas Biroji building is acknowledged for its quality and contemporary solutions, and the large floor plan makes it easy to change the layout to fit specific needs. The building was awarded the ‘Most Sustainable Building in Latvia’ in 2013 due to its advanced climate and ventilation solutions and low utility costs. It is planned that the adaptation of the premises to the needs of the State Police will be carried out by a construction contractor selected as a result of an open tender announced by the Provision State Agency and the costs of the construction works will be covered from the financial resources of the State budget.

With a 12-year lease agreement in place, Upmalas Biroji is set to become the home to a considerable number of Latvian State Police officers and staff, solidifying its position as a dynamic and efficient hub for public and private organizations.
