Both the Brockton Police Station and Fire Station #1 were deemed functionally obsolete and needed substantial rehabilitation. The City of Brockton approved a combined modern public safety campus including a joint Emergency Services Dispatch Center, Brockton Emergency Management Agency, and the City’s IT Department.
The campus represents an ideal and comprehensive co-location of related public safety services given today’s increased risks of physical and technological vulnerability to the continuity of service in urban settings. However, these entities and departments face unique operational needs, threats, and hazards. Careful, insightful assessments and planning for security mitigation measures are being developed as part of the design process to create an environment ideally configured for efficient service to the community and safe incident response.
