Breaking Ground on New DU-COMM facility

On April 3, we were proud to welcome our partners from county and local government, law enforcement, fire departments and other first responders as we broke ground at the new DU-COMM Center. The facility is being built here on DuPage County’s Wheaton campus, repurposing the former Youth Home building.  

The $15.8 million project will provide DU-COMM with a state-of-the-art facility, a high-tech communications center that provides a 25-year solution to their agency's facility needs.

This partnership provides a shining example of the County’s Accountability, Consolidation and Transparency Initiative. Consolidating 9-1-1 call centers has saved taxpayers $6.7 million annually, which helps to maximize our tax dollars.
