Hopkins County Central Dispatch Moves to New Location
After months of planning, Hopkins County Central Dispatch personnel have moved into their new building.
The 1,200 square-foot base of operations rests under the county's former courthouse.
Communications Supervisor Randall Orange says the move brings his team some much needed space and better technology.
"Old building - we were 4 workstations in like 340 square feet, crammed in there like sardines. We have room now, and we have 6 workstations," Orange said.
"We've got a more secure location for our workers."
Orange says 911 service charges to area phone lines covered the building's cost, estimated at nearly $200,000.
Other features include new furniture and an improved electrical system.
