Default What I'm hearing and not hearing

So I have my BC796D all programmed and scanning and receiving fine. I programmed in all the talk groups that may interest me but of course the fun is doing an ID search to search for everything out there.

Between the database and just listening I can figure out what I'm hearing.

But here is the question. I can hear lots of dispatch stuff telling someone to go to an address and check something out or go on scene somewhere for a report of a suspicious person or a drunk driver etc....

What I'm not hearing is a response when the patrol car gets on scene. Or if they are dispatched to an accident I never hear what they find when they get on scene.

Same thing for alarms. I will here a dispatcher talk about a report of an alarm somewhere and a car will respond but I don't here the outcome when they get there.

Am I missing something?

St Clair and Macomb Counties with the primary and alternate control channels in two different banks. One bank for each county with the primary channel in the first channel of the bank.

I hear both sides but I never hear any follow up.

I heard dispatch tell a car to go to an intersection where a kid was playing in traffic. I heard the car say they were on the way but I never heard anything after that.

I guess I expect to hear the officer say he's on location and what happened once he got there. Or when dispatch says there is a report of a man hiding in the bushes and the car says they will check it out I expect to hear something when he gets there.

Does that type of traffic move to other channels?

Unless you have paused the scanner on that talkgroup ... I would guess that when the Ofc is giving thier disposition on the original talkgroup, your scanner is on a different talkgroup and you are hearing a new call.

Or, the Ofcs do the same thing that I do and just use CAD thru thier MDC. I typically get my runs over the air then change my CAD status to enroute, at scene and clear over the computer when appropriate. Hot runs are different but routine, mundane complaints don't require me to tie up the air and tell other Ofcs and dispatchers how a run went. For example, "Unit 123, check in front of 555 Main St for a silver Ford Focus that the caller reports as abandonded."... I arrive, run it on my MDC then slap a 48 hr aband sticker on it. I don't need to announce any of that over the air so I just tap the 'clear' button, add my notes into the CFS, press enter then drive on to find more crime.

That makes sense and explains things.

The other night there was a stolen vehicle that had just happened and I heard 3 or 4 units talking about where they were and how the search was going. I fell asleep before that one ended but it also goes with what you just said.

Thanks for the explanation.
