Lincoln, NE (AP) - Nebraska State Patrol says it has begun a three-stage consolidation of its dispatch centers.

The patrol said in a news release that taking the centers down to three from six is expected to save $750,000.

The patrol says the Norfolk center will be the first to close. Its dispatch duties will be taken over completely by the Lincoln center in mid-May.

The second phase will be implemented by summer 2015. A committee will be meeting to determine which center will close next.
