KSP to possibly take over local dispatch

KSP Logo

Kentucky State Police could soon be taking over emergency dispatch services for McCracken County. Commissioner Jerry Beyer proposed a workshop be held to discuss transferring the county's 911 dispatch duties to KSP. The county currently spends $1.6 million a year on dispatch services. Beyer said KSP has offered to do it for half that amount, which would also avoid a $4 million upgrade. KSP already services Graves and Lyon counties.
