Communications Supervisor Susie Lawrence monitors screens at the new central dispatch on Tuesday. The central dispatch is housed on the second floor of the old jail building. Residents still will use the same emergency numbers for the city-county dispatch, which was switched over on Tuesday. The county and city have agreed to split the costs of the dispatch budget. The county will cover 55 percent of the expenses, while the city will cover 45 percent. (Staff photo by Ken Ritchie/
