'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
