Security center opens on east side

January 25, 2012

A new center built to help keep Marion County residents safer opened Wednesday on the east side of Indianapolis. Mayor Greg Ballard was joined by Public Safety Director Frank Straub and Division of Homeland Security Chief Gary Coons for the grand opening of the Regional Operations Center. The center, at 200 N. Shadeland Ave., will be used to coordinate emergency plans for large-scale incidents at major events, such as the upcoming Super Bowl.  The FBI will house its Intelligence Operations Center at the same location.
