With its location at the gateway to the town, the Schwäbisch Hall police station picks up some design elements from the neighbouring listed buildings. It is a modern structure with a typical local limestone facade.

    Apart from an administrative area, the ground floor houses a centre for crime prevention. The protected, glazed entrance and generous windows give the police station an air of transparency and openness. The striking head-end projects dynamically into the street. It is an eye-catcher and marks the entrance of the building. At the same time, it constitutes an element of great recognition value at the Northwest end of town.
