The Rome Police Department has unveiled a new, state-of-the-art Mobile Command Center.

The Command Center will be used by police, Rome firefighters and the Rome DPW.

The vehicle is equipped with three cameras that extend on a 40 foot boom, LED scene lighting, multiple computer work stations, Direct TV reception capabilities, and a kitchenette.

It will replace an old bus from the 1990s.

The vehicle was custom built by Rollingstar Manufacturing located in Barneveld and is built on a 2020 Freightliner Chassis ordered through Mohawk Valley Freightliner located in Yorkville.

The graphics were applied by A & P Master Images of Utica,

Senator Joseph Griffo secured $275,000 in state funding for the project.
