Default Nypd and TRBO

I saw this today



I was wondering if that's TRBO and is it for special detail? Or a side job?

That's a MOTOTRBO radio, maybe detail as I highly doubt the NYPD would go that route and not P25.

Looks like his NYPD radio on his other shoulder. Probably working security, such as at a retail outlet and has one of their radios too.

I also noticed the collar brass, doesn't show a precinct number, not familiar with those letters. (this may be a tip too).

Nypd cops are allowed to work side jobs in uniform. Back before each cop had a radio assigned to them, you could often tell by no radio and collar brass from another boro that they were working on the side.

Now the cops will cary a nypd radio when working on the side. If the side job has its own radio such as the turbo they will cary that as well. You might notice this a lot in midtown areas.

Probably the shot was taken at Rockefeller Center. The NYPD cops there are also assigned the MOTOTRBO radio for security detail.

XPR radios can do analog conventional, too. Also notice the speakermic on his shoulder? That's probably attached to his primary issued radio.

That XPR is either used for something non-NYPD like some have said, or it could be his personal portable he carries just for access to other agencies frequencies without having to change the channel of his duty portable.

Or maybe it's his ham/gmrs radio :-D

CTTF is Citywide Traffic Task Force, which is, as the name suggests, detailed to various traffic and special event operations as needed.

No idea what the deal is with the extra portable, but it isn't NYPD issue (and, given the other microphone, is in addition to his "real" radio).

I've always seen in the RR database citywide traffic and night hawks ops. I always wondered what night hawk ops are?

Yankee stadium detail DOES NOT use TRBO. They use a tac channel I can't remember which.

Let me refine that... yes the PD detail uses a TAC but the stadium uses TURBO.

Yankee Stadium security uses an LTR Passport system. I program all the frequencies in conventional and with 0 delay. The only problem is the 1/2 second data bursts every 10 seconds or so. The voice is analoge in the clear.

Nighthawk is the nickname given to the Parking Enforcement District's Overnight Citywide traffic enforcement agents (Level 1s, summons writers).
