McConnell Public Safety and Transportation Operations Center Project

PSTOCThe first step toward the McConnell Public Safety and Transportation Operations Center Project was taken in November 2002 when voters approved a bond referendum that included $29 million towards the replacement of county's aging Emergency Communications Center. Additional funding for this facility was allocated from county general funds. Construction on the center was substantially completed on July 31, 2008 and was on schedule and under budget. When migrations are complete, agencies that will be co-located in the facility are the Department of Public Safety Communications (9-1-1 Communication Center), the Office of Emergency Management, the Emergency Operations Center, the Virginia State Police Division 7 dispatchers and call talkers, and Virginia Department of Transportation Operations Center.

The Forensic Facility for the Fairfax County Police Department, located adjacent to the McConnell Public Safety and Transportation Operations Center, also substantially completed construction on July 31, 2008. The Forensic Facility provides new quarters for the Crime Scene Unit, the NOVARIS section, the Electronic Surveillance Unit, as well as a future DNA Laboratory.

See the project overview (PDF) for more information.
