Williamson County’s Public Safety Center
Award of Excellence for New Construction Under $30M
After the devastation of the May 2010 Floods, Williamson County made the construction of a building capable of handling future emergencies and protecting the community a priority. The Williamson County Public Safety Task Force made up of County Government Officials, partner agencies, and private industry met for over a year and recommended that a mission driven facility be constructed to address the public safety needs of the fast growing community.
The Public Safety Center fulfilled six critical needs for Williamson County: an Emergency Operations Center, Emergency Communications Center, training space, disaster recovery, continuity of operations, and administrative space for the Office of Public Safety.
