Public Safety Building and Emergency Operations Center

The new EOC is a two story structure located near the Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 1850 Muir Road to provide centralization of all key Sheriff’s facilities on County owned property. This includes Sheriff’s Administration, Field Operations, Communications, Coroner and Emergency Services Divisions. This building combines elements of strength, elegance, energy efficiency, and suitability. Ballistic resistance structural elements provide a stronghold for the Sheriff’s team in the County. From this new facility, the Sheriff’s team has a state of the art situation room, allowing the team to monitor several events at a time. The situation room contains a 32’ Wide x 14’ Tall video wall composed of 48 LCD screens that is custom programmed to allow multiple views and streaming capability. The building also features an 18’ diameter glass Sheriff’s crest in the lobby and a Lecture Hall that is equipped with a retractable stage for a formal assembly area. The new EOC will not miss a beat in an emergency.
