Colorado Springs PD using rarely used TGs busy tonight
I just got home but I've been hearing CSPD use a couple talk groups that they rarely use. Sounds like they just finished checking a lot of addresses for a suspect and finally found him. They said his victim was a woman and they need to interview her again, so it doesn't sound like he was wanted for any of the recent homicides.
They said they are finished using these talk groups and are taking the suspect back to the Police Operations Center (POC). But they used both of these TGs extensively this evening until a few minutes ago.
TG-4587 Listed in RR as CSPD Central-1 (they VERY rarely use this one)
TG-4589 Listed in RR as CSPD Tactical-1 but both dispatcher and units have been calling it "TEU-1" (meaning Tactical Enforcement Unit - their version of SWAT)
TEU-1 is usually encrypted but tonight they were not, probably because they were using patrols to help with the operation.
So if anyone hears a unit say they are switching to TEU-1, that's TG-4589.
Also, when they ask the dispatcher if "16" is up, they are referring to "CityWide" TG-4600. This is the TG they run names over and request tows. 16 sounds like the radio position that CityWide can be found on. Some say "CityWide" and others say "16".
