The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has announced today it will dispatch all State Police calls effective Nov. 1.
Sheriff Gary Maha in a statement says “the partnership comes at a time when governments are being asked to cut expenses and share services. It just makes sense to combine dispatching into one central location where future equipment and resources can de dedicated to a single site.”
State Police Captain Craig Hanesworth headquartered in Batavia says he believes this consolidation will provide Genesee County residents with better police service and response times while also increasing the safety of officers. He says it allows State Police to reassign troopers to road patrol functions that would have otherwise been delegated to dispatch and administrative functions.
