Dozens of elected officials and local law enforcement gathered for the dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting of Morris County’s new $23 million, 39,000-square-foot Public Safety Academy facility located in Parsippany. Following tours of the facility, Freeholder Director Thomas Mastrangelo delivered the keynote address a little after noon. Freeholder Director Tom Mastrangelo said the project has been in development for longer than the seven or eight years he’s been a Freeholder.
The new building opened more than a month ago and includes an up-to-date crime lab for all municipalities to use, a safe and secure data center for digital records, a 911 dispatch center, and the Morris County’s Office of Emergency Management. The facility now can take on any additional municipalities that wish to use the dispatch service.
