• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I've been monitoring Pomona PD for some time now and I wondered if anyone knows what the unit designations stand for. I can't find them anywhere else.

The general format, like many pd's, is [A-Z]-[0-9][0-9]. The following are [A-Z] characters that I have heard and my guesses as to what they mean...

Air-01 = Helicopter
A = One-man patrol unit
B =
D = Detective
E = Two-man patrol unit
G =
H =
J = School resource officer (SRO)
K =
K9 = K9
L = Lieutenant
M = Motorcycle traffic officer
N = Narcotics enforcement officer
S = Sergeant
X =
Z =


On a related note, here are some of the unit designators I have heard on Cal Poly Pomona PD's dispatch. I haven't seen these anywhere online so I thought I'd put them up:

1XX = Community service officer
A = Extra patrol officer (volunteer?)
C-1 = Chief
I = Investigator
L = Lieutenant
P = Patrol officer
S = Sergeant
T = Parking officer
V = ?

I've been hearing those plus alot of B, G, H, K ,T10's, and J10's lately. I'm pretty sure those guys have 15+ radio cars on patrol. I haven't heard the encryption on their Dispatch *BLUE-1* (TG 37680). I think their Orange, and Brown channels are encrypted all the time. Are you also using both hi and lo frequencies and settings?

I'm pretty sure that H units are accident response/accident investigation units and T units would be traffic officers. As far as B, E, G, K, and X units, I have no idea.

Quite possibly. Once when there was an officer involved shooting with Ontario PD, I heard over 10 Pomona units say they were in route to assist. If they could spare 10 units, they must have had several more units to cover their own city.

I assume you are referring to the custom trunking tables. Here's how my custom tables are set up:

Code:
             01      02
Lo Chan       380     581
Hi Chan       580     759
Offset        380     581
Base Freq  469.05  482.05
Step         12.5    12.5
