Grand Opening of new facility for Real-Time Analysis and Critical Response Division NR09453rh

In March 2002, the people of Los Angeles voted to fund Proposition Q, the Citywide Public Safety Bond Measure that provided $600 million for the construction of 11 new police facilities and the renovation of 12 existing police stations.  One of those new facilities is the Los Angeles Emergency Operations Center, which houses the city’s Emergency Management Department, segments of LAPD’s Incident Management Support and Emergency Operations Divisions as well as Real-Time Analysis and Critical Response (RACR) Division.

RACR Division was previously housed four floors underground, in the basement of City Hall East and long ago outgrew the space.  The Division, now staffed by 67 sworn and civilian members, has evolved from a small notifications unit into a Regional Crime Center which, while still providing notifications on significant, impactful events, additionally offers situational awareness, an emergency operations component and investigative support for field units.

The 84,000 square-foot facility in downtown Los Angeles cost $107 million.  The center is environmentally efficient, is designed to withstand a magnitude 8.0 earthquake and features blast-resistant exterior surfaces.  It abuts the new Fire Station 4 and will also eventually be home to the LAFD Dispatch.  

The Center was designed by the architectural firms HOK and Fluor Corporation and was constructed by S.J. Amoroso Construction Company.  It features executive boardrooms, a media room, and training and management rooms.

For more information about the new Emergency Operations Center call Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
