Murrysville 911 calls to be dispatched by county system beginning in December

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.
