Default Dallas county (Carrollton Texas)

My sister lives in Carrollton Texas and there was a feed for the police department and now I don't see it any longer. Does any one know if there still is a live feed for Carrollton Texas? I am in Michigan. thank you.

There is no longer an active feed,

Carrollton, along with Addison, Coppell, and Farmers Branch moved to this system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=8207

Unfortunately, once that move was made, all four cities started encrypting their PD talkgroups. (The database only shows Coppell as encrypted, but in fact all four are.) So, neither a feed or scanner would be able to hear the law enforcement traffic. Fire and EMS, for now, is still in the clear.

On a drive to Coppell recently I found that Carrollton was in the clear on some of their PD channels but everyone else defiantly was not. Fire was in the clear though.

Hmmm.

I had heard that fire would be unencrypted, but that all law enforcement would be. Wonder if it defaulted to "clear" because a radio not capable of using that mode was affiliated. You must have caught them at the absolute right time. While I am receiving the system, all law enforcement groups that I've seen come up are encrypted. I may "park" my 536 on the system for a while and see what pops up.
