Beck: Real-time crime center is in the works


In September, the Peoria City Council unanimously approved an intergovernmental agreement to utilize a $2.6 million state grant for the funding of a brand new, state-of-the-art Real-Time Crime Center. This represents one of many actions our city has taken to continuously display our unwavering support for Peoria’s Police and Fire-Medical departments.

Work is underway to locate the RTCC at the Pinnacle Peak Public Safety Facility along Lake Pleasant Parkway, where it will centralize current and evolving technologies to aid officers in crime investigations, community policing, and crime prevention.

Once completed, Peoria first responders will have access to live video footage from key points across the city. This monitoring capability will allow for swift responses in times of emergency and additional opportunities for prevention ahead of time. When responding to emergencies, every moment counts, and the RTCC provides the information necessary for our public safety officials to act decisively.

Peoria’s RTCC precisely aligns with our council’s strategic priority of public safety. Above all else, we must prioritize the safety and well-being of our communities, residents, and first responders. As we continue through this process, I encourage you to visit www.peoriaaz.gov/councilpriorities to stay up-to-date and informed on all our ongoing public safety initiatives.

Thank you for the continued trust you have placed in me as mayor. As always, do not hesitate to contact me by emailing mayor@peoriaaz.gov or calling 623-773-4610. I look forward to continuing to engage with residents on ways to make our communities as safe as possible.
