BRUNSWICK, Ohio - The Brunswick Police Department’s new dispatch center is up and running. It is the first major upgrade to the center in more than 20 years.
The new center was paid for in part by a federal grant, money from the county 9-1-1 wireless fund, and an energy efficiency grant.
Officials said to save money, a lot of work was done by city hall and police employees. The center has been closed to the public since July.
The old center no longer met the operational needs of the police department .
The center has new sound panels to improve acoustics, new flooring and ceiling as well as many other upgrades.
Officials said the new center is modern and built for efficiency. The radio systems have been replaced with a touch screen system that allows dispatchers to connect several departments at once.
