Harbor Command Center (Harbor Charlie)- Harbor Charlie Goes from Basic to Commanding

CLIENT: New York Police Department (NYPD) / VALUE: $1M / TIMEFRAME: 5 months / SERVICES PROVIDED: Design Build

THE SITUATION: Harbor Charlie is a 16,000 square foot facility that serves as the Harbor Command Center for the NYPD Emergency Services Unit. Located on New York City’s East River, Harbor Charlie was originally designed as a basic precinct, not a command center, and was in need of a design transformation.

THE CHALLENGE: Convert an existing precinct front desk area into a state-of-the-art command center.

THE SOLUTION: Logical decisions with state-of-the-art solutions.

CLS created a more useable workspace by reconfiguring the layout and effectively reducing the size of the locker room while maintaining the same number of lockers needed. Working with Harbor Command and NYPD’s IT division, CLS marshaled the appropriate resources and provided the necessary technology for the updated design.


THE RESULT: A state-of-the-art command center.

NYPD Emergency Services Unit now has an operational command center fully capable of supporting 12 occupants with state-of-the-art desk and operational systems.
