Context/Comments
A Modernist building designed by architect Chris Risher Sr., of Meridian, the former Meridian Police Station was built from 1975 to 1977. It was awarded an honor citation by the Mississippi AIA in 1977. In 1979 it was included as element #118 in the Meridian Urban Center Historic District. It is now counted as a previously-listed but non-contributing element (element #115) in the Downtown Meridian Historic District, which superseded the earlier district when it was placed on the Register in 2007. The building was designated a Mississippi Landmark in 2015 because of its architectural prominence.

It is included in "Buildings of Mississippi" (2020) (p. 217, EM13).
