Illinois State Police To Consolidate Dispatch Centers


The state is moving forward with plans to consolidate 20 state police dispatching centers down to just four.

 

That will leave Illinois with fewer state police call centers than any of its neighboring states.

 

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports that dispatch centers in Pittsfield and Macomb have already been closed and their duties relocated to the center in Springfield, which will remain open.

 

The move was intended to reduce state police headcount by 60 positions and save more than a million dollars, but a state police spokesperson says only four people will be laid off, and declined to give a revised estimate on savings.
