INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Next month we could learn more about the details behind the ROC or Regional Operations Center. A July 10 hearing is set on the case of the city of Indianapolis suing itself over the building. It’s a fight I-Team 8 has followed for months.
The police command center closed due to safety concerns last September. The City – County Council wants a judge to force the city to turns over documents related to the $18 million lease. Councillor Joe Simpson is requesting the former Department of Public Safety Director who signed the lease, Frank Straub, come back to testify before a committee. Straub is currently Police Chief in Spokane, Washington.
I-Team 8 talked to Straub Friday who said he had no comment. DPS workers moved back into the ROC last month.
