Default Grand Rapids City Ambassador Frequency

Does anyone know what frequency the Grand Rapids City Ambassadors are using. They are the ones on bikes and segways.

I believe this is what you might be referring to:

New downtown Safety Ambassadors to serve and assist community year-round | MLive.com

Something tells me they have no radios based on what I read

From the article
The Safety Ambassadors are unarmed, but carry a radio that they can use to signal for help if need arises.

Please allow me to be the 4th person to respond to your query, that does not know the answer to your question.

I've heard them call for assistance from GRPS several times on 155.790 (GRPD North). I've not yet found their Segway to Segway frequency yet.

I'm sure you meant GRPD not GRPS (GR public Schools).

Thank you for the report. BTW, do you know how they ID themselves or
what they use for unit numbers?

Thanks Bob

I wonder if they are using 154.83-ch 5, 154.74-ch 9 or 151.22 for segway use
