Indianapolis center found unsafe, closed to police

INDIANAPOLIS The Indianapolis center that handled emergency operations during the 2013 Super Bowl has been closed indefinitely because it's not safe.

Indianapolis Public Safety Director Troy Riggs removed about 150 workers from an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department regional operations center Monday because the Indianapolis Fire Department and the Department of Code Enforcement deemed the building unsafe.

Riggs says the problems include a faulty basement sprinkler system and firewall.

The police officers and Homeland Security officials who worked in the east side center are setting up shop in other locations across the city.
