UPDATED — There’s more crime coming downtown, but thankfully it’s in the form of a commission.

The Wichita Crime Commission is moving offices this week.

The Commission, which supports law enforcement in a variety of ways, is moving from the corner of Market and Murdock to Suite 508 at the Center Point building at Douglas and Main.

“We got a favorable lease in this new spot, and we’ve got storage in the basement of this building that we don’t have at our current spot,” says president Todd Johnson.

“It basically . . . more than doubles the space we had before.”

He says the Commission was “actually able to save a couple of bucks by moving.”

Johnson says it’s a nice deal given that it’s “all the storage space we need and a nice downtown location.”

The move happens Wednesday.

“We’re excited to be in our new office,” Johnson says. “We’re having a good year.”
