Jeers to the Minnesota State Patrol for planning to close its dispatch center in Detroit Lakes.

The DL location, which currently employs five dispatchers, is one of seven state dispatch centers being closed.


Starting in January, all calls from the Detroit Lakes and surrounding areas will be answered in Roseville, which will be the primary call center for the state. A second, smaller location will be in Rochester.
