SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City's new public safety building is more than a year from its scheduled completion. But when it opens in July 2013, it will house a combined police and fire 911 emergency and dispatch center — if Mayor Ralph Becker gets his way.
Right now, the city's police and fire departments have separate dispatch centers.
