JIRA Service Desk attach to existing project or start new project?

We have been using JIRA to track IT project work for awhile and a different product for IT service desk issues. We are a small IT team so the same team does project work (longer term work) and handles service desk issues. Should we add Service Desk to our existing IT project or start a new project just for the service desk issues? Pros/Cons?

Possibly related to my question:  we have a team using JIRA Software, and would like to add the service desk to the maintenance project for the team, to allow the user to submit tickets in a more integrated way, and allow the user to see the status better.  Can't find the control to add a service desk to an existing JIRA project.
