    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

The rumor I heard was that they're going to a contracted agency, but everything will remain the same. In other words, the dispatchers paychecks will just have a different name on it.

The issue I forsee with this rumor is that you're not just talking about MONOC, but also agencies that they have contracts with that they dispatch for. Not quite as cut and dry as it would seem.

As long as they can still provide the contracted services it wouldn't affect the other agencies. I doubt any of their contracts say "services must be provided by employees of MONOC."

Wonder if the communications center staff started talking about unionizing so MONOC started talking about outsourcing.

No, but I know there's all sorts of legal hurdles to outsourcing like that with other contracts in place.

And you know it's entirely possible that's what happened.

IXP (I believe those letters) will take over MONOC dispatch in about 60 days or so. All of the current dispatchers will have to apply to IXP. All hardware and frequencies will remain.

This opening up contracts becoming cancelled. Look for Atlantic and Meridian and Trinitas and Barnabus to either get better deals or walk away from them. It would be easy for Barnabas as they could just move to RWJ now part of Barnabas Health Systems and with the PSIC radios they do not need the infrastructure that was required in the past. Atlantic has units operating on Miccom already so maybe they will bolt. Meridian just merged with Hackensack but I don't think they have the infrastructure to move. Maybe Trinitas will go to Remsc?

You know what would be a novel idea? If they let the county 911 centers dispatch ALS Resources... Nothing like having to play the telephone game to get an ALS unit in a timely fashion.

Inter-facility transport dispatching, as far as I am concerned, they can pay whoever they want for that. Now I am not saying anything bad against the Monoc Control Dispatchers(because they do seem like competent individuals), but the actual system itself is inefficient.

Back in the early days of MONOC, Monmouth County and CMC MedCom dispatched them for their respective areas. I thought with the new Monmouth County Comm Center, they dedicated a certain number of seats for MONOC (for future use)?

the way that i see it is, the company wanted control over their dispatch op's, so they took it away from county. regardless of who they get to take over the obligation, they will still have to pay. are they going to pay the county to take over their medevac op's radio position too ?. this should get interesting.
