The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is holding an open house tomorrow at 10 a.m. to showcase its new emergency communications center. The $4 million complex will house 15 call-taker stations, 12 radio stations and a training room.
The new communications center is scheduled to go live on Wednesday.
A portion of the renovation was paid with grant funds through the Department of Homeland Security and administered by the Texas Terrorism Task Force. The funding is designed to upgrade the radio equipment.
During the open house, other vendors and organizations that will be present include Greater Houston 911, Verint Technologies, Fisk, Turner Construction and Motorola. The open house will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and tours of the facility will be given.
