A NEW communications centre which deploys police in Huddersfield has been opened.
The high-technology centre in Bradford has been specially designed to be as comfortable as possible.
It has moved from another Bradford centre and controls the deployment of all officers from Huddersfield, Dewsbury, Halifax, Bradford and Keighley.
It was designed in consultation with experts in control room design.
The furniture, lighting equipment and even the carpets were carefully chosen to ensure a comfortable, efficient working environment.
It is equipped with the latest communications and computer equipment.
This should enable operators to dispatch officers to incidents, provide them with information regarding people and vehicles they are checking and support them by ensuring that any extra resources or back is sent to them.
Two special incident suites are also included and a briefing room with state of the art electronics.
