Dispatching consolidates in central South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The City of Pierre and the state Department of Public Safety have consolidated emergency and law enforcement dispatch services in central South Dakota into a single operation run by the city.

The consolidation began Wednesday.

Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill says the consolidation of two public-safety communications systems into one will increase efficiency and save money.

The consolidation moves the city's dispatch services to the State Radio facilities located at the Mickelson Law Enforcement Center.

The city is responsible for personnel and will share costs of the dispatch services with the state.
