After years of planning and research, Regional 9-1-1 Consolidation Partners and the Lake County Board joined together to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new Regional Operations and Communications (ROC) Facility, which will be built next to the Lake County Central Permit Facility in Libertyville.

The facility is designed to house a consolidated Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP), the County’s Emergency Management Agency (LCEMA), and the supporting staff and technologies. It will bring together highly trained experts and state-of-the-art technology to coordinate resources, information, and emergency communications and management all under one roof.
