Murrysville council last week approved an agreement to transfer police dispatching to the county system in December.

Westmoreland County 911 will begin dispatching Murrysville police calls on Dec. 2.

A callbox will be installed at the municipal building and the current police number — 724-327-2111 — will connect callers directly with county dispatch.

Murrysville was one of three municipalities in Westmoreland County to dispatch police calls in-house.

North Huntington and Greensburg police departments will continue to use in-house systems.

Murrysville officials do not yet know what impact the switch will have on the 2014 budget.
