Police Chief Dave Ortolano said funds allocated in Mayor Willie Rosas’s 2018 budget allowed for the needed upgrades.
Ortolano said that Desk Sergeant Daniel Manzella coordinated the project along with a number of city officials.
The entire room was gutted. All the electrical, communications and computer/data systems were upgraded. Officials said that all of the security cameras at city hall and in the police department are also being upgraded.

Police said the center is the heart of day-to-day operations for the department.
“On behalf of all the men and women of the City of Dunkirk Police Department I want to thank Mayor Rosas for working with us to get this project done,” said Dunkirk Police Chief David Ortolano. “I want to especially thank Desk Sgt. Dan Manzella, City Electrician Mike Przybycien and Custodian Lou Polichetti for their countless hours of hard work.”
Ortolano said the upgrades will allow officers to continue to provide the community the best in public safety available.
