City of Indianapolis chooses Lifeline Data Centers for Department of Public Safety, Emergency Operations Center

The City of Indianapolis chooses Midwest Colocation provider Lifeline Data Centers as the new home for the Department of Public Safety. Lifeline’s Eastgate campus houses wholesale colocation facilities and secure office space.

A new fire headquarters and a training academy for inner-city teenagers are among a flurry of changes planned by the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety next year.

The department also will move its Emergency Operations Center to an abandoned mall at Shadeland Avenue and East Washington Street and relocate two hard-to-find police stations — the East and Downtown district offices.

Public Safety Director Frank Straub said the moves are designed to bring city services closer to residents, prepare for the Super Bowl in 2012 and harness economic development.
