Description: The Police Headquarters was designed by József Borsos in 1914 who made an extensive use of the glazed pottery of Hódmezővásárhely. The main entrance is decorated with the coat of arms of Debrecen. József Borsos is a major architect of the 20th century. His name is connected with such Debrecen buildings as the University Church, the Crematorium and the Police Headquarters. From 1908 Borsos was the city architect of Debrecen and then from 1923 he worked as Head of the Technical Department of the Mayor’s Office until his retirement.
