      "[Santa Monica] Public safety officials are working on a plan that could combine the police and fire departments’ dispatch centers in an effort to further reduce the time it takes to respond to emergencies.

      "...Currently, the dispatch centers are all in-house and separate... It wasn’t long ago [Jan 2007] when the Santa Monica Fire Department decided to merge dispatch operations with the Los Angeles Fire Department Regional Dispatch System... Residents complained of slower response times... After nearly two years, the City Council in 2009 decided to reactivate the old communications center in the Public Safety Facility.
