Arapahoe County Sheriff's headquarters reopens following flood damage

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's headquarters in Centennial was closed Tuesday due to damage from Monday night's storm.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) headquarters in Centennial suffered flooding and severe water damage after Monday night's storm, according to a release from the sheriff's office.

The roof of the building sustained damage due to heavy winds over the weekend, the release said. This lead to damage inside the building such as buckling walls, standing water and collapsed ceiling tiles.

Cleanup crews removed water, drying and dehumidifying the interior, and contractors will be repairing the roof, according to the sheriff's office.

The building, located at 13101 E. Broncos Pkwy., was closed to the public while repairs occurred, but has since reopened.
