New police emergency ops center in the works

The Police Department is one step closer to cashing in a $1 million federal grant for a new emergency operations center.

The new center will go into a recently purchased building at 16th Street and De Haro which the Department’s tactical unit will call its home. The Department of Emergency Management already has a headquarters on Turk Street.

Costs for setting up the new police emergency headquarters have been estimated at $50,000 for wiring and technology, including 10 laptop computers.

The grant was one of three approved by the Police Commission on Wednesday. Funding for methamphetamine abatement and a new academy class were also approved. The grants still need approval from the Board of Supervisors.
