Angela Murphy sits in her office reflecting on how far the 911 dispatch center has come in its 10 years.

In that time the department has moved from under the auspices of the city to the county; and from a tiny office in the police department to a stand-alone 911 response center that has become the benchmark for the state.

It wasn?t an easy sell convincing workers to come work for the county, Murphy said.
