METAMORA, Ill. -- Dispatchers for Illinois State Police will soon be further away as part of a consolidation plan.

Dispatch in Metamora will be closing and merging with the center in Pontiac as part of a plan announced in 2012.

Spokeswoman Monique Bond says the 22 people this affects locally will not be losing their jobs.

She also stresses the entire District 8 is not consolidating, but just the dispatch communications.

Dispatch from District 10 in Pesotum and District 21 in Ashkum are also moving to Pontiac as part of this plan.
