History

The Midwest City Emergency Operations Center is equipped with the latest technology in modern communications equipment. This is primarily due to the citizens of Midwest City passing a public safety sales tax in 1994 which was proposed to them by the leadership of Midwest City. The funds received from that tax have been used to purchase our first Computer Aided Dispatch System. As a part of that system the City of Midwest City has also purchased, Mobile Data Terminals (MDT's), StarView Mapping System and the Automatic Vehicle Locator Global Positioning System (AVL's). Midwest City is one of the first public safety agencies in the State of Oklahoma to have all of these systems in place and currently working.
