After 5 years, the North Tonawanda Police are asking for their own Dispatch Center back, according to News Reports.  Reports claim the Dispatch Center was relocated to Lockport in 2012 to save money.

Erik Herbert, spokesperson for NTPBA.(North Tonawanda Benevolent Police Association) said this:

“The NT police union 100 percent feels this is a life or death issue for the citizens of North Tonawanda. We can’t do our jobs the way the city needs us to if you’re handcuffing us by not giving us a reliable dispatch.”
