New York Police Department (NYPD)
The NYPD Headquarters and Command Center (NYPD) is hosted in the iconic 1 Police Plaza Building. The seat of Command-and-Control Operations, NYPD Headquarters represents the nerve center of security operations for New York City. The uninterrupted operations of this command center is vital to maintaining the safety and security of the city’s residents and visitors.
When the NYPD sought to protect their 24/7/365 Operations Command Center and its critical electronic infrastructure from the potentially catastrophic effects of water leaks, they turned to PEPCO, the leader in leak detection technology.
The NYPD Command Center at 1 Police Plaza is a high-stakes environment where any disruption can have far-reaching consequences. Given the critical nature of the command center’s operations, the NYPD required a highly reliable and effective solution to prevent water damage that could potentially cripple their operations.
Located at 1 Police Plaza is the Real Time Crime Center, an anti-crime computer network which is essentially a large search engine and data warehouse operated by detectives to assist officers in the field with their investigations. The Major Case Squad and the Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) are also located at 1 Police Plaza. Undetected water leaks could result in significant damage to electronic infrastructure, causing operational downtime and compromising the safety and security of New York City.
