The consolidation began Wednesday.

Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill says the consolidation of two public-safety communications systems into one will increase efficiency and save money.

The consolidation moves the city's dispatch services to the State Radio facilities located at the Mickelson Law Enforcement Center.

The city is responsible for personnel and will share costs of the dispatch services with the state.
