Joint Dispatch Center Agreed Upon


They've signed on the dotted line. Now all they have to do is build it.

Leon County leaders gathered Wednesday morning in the Capitol courtyard to okay an agreement creating an emergency dispatch center.

It will bring together under one roof dispatchers for Tallahassee's police and fire departments. The Leon County Sheriff's Office and the county's Emergency Medical Services.

Leaders say this will make the public safer by getting emergency help to the scene more quickly.
