After years in the works, the wait for the new dispatch console system is nearly over. As a key component to the upgraded State Radio System, the consoles and their integrated features will make a big difference for Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon State Police dispatch operators.
OSP Southern Command Center Supervisor Michael Berkowitz was onsite during staging and was one of the first to test the equipment. "The new system is so much more user friendly," said Berkowitz. "What's nice about the new consoles is that they allow free flexibility so each command center is able to customize certain features to meet individual needs."
