East Haven Finance Board Approves $1.25 Million For New Dispatch Center

Town Council must still approve the new dispatch center.

The Police Department is one step closer to having an extra police officer patrol the streets as the Board of Finance approved bonding $1.25 million for a new public safety dispatch system, the New Haven Register reports. 

Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. cast the deciding vote, and now its up to the Town Council now, the Register’s Evan Lips reports. 

Police officers currently answer 911 calls and they will be replaced by civilian dispatchers, which will free up an additional officer to patrol the streets.

The Police Department spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on overtime costs last year.
