The Sheriff says  consolidation will generate some $600,000 in savings and will allow his office to keep open the Jail in Truckee which is used by multiple agencies. He says consolidated dispatch  will also improve officer safety and service to the community because everyone will be on the same frequency they;ll hear whats going on and when they hear a crisis occur  in another jurisdiction, officers  will be able to respond faster.
