Default VSP Divisions and Talkgroups

I'm having a horrible time finding a complete listing of which VSP talkgroups cover which counties in each division.

For example, I'm pretty sure Ric 1 covers:

Richmond City
Chesterfield
Petersburg
Colonial Heights
Hopewell
Louisa
Goochland
Powhatan
Amelia
Prince George
Nottoway


But I'm not positive on those. I'd be interested in seeing which TGs cover which counties/cities in other divisions too. I have found the maps for the VHF legacy system but can't find anything definitive regarding STARS.

If anyone can pont me to a map or listing I'd appreciate it.

This page on the VSP website has a map of the different divisions, as well as an alphabetical county/city listing with division number for the county. For the map, you can click on a division and it will provide a zoomed in map of that division's area.

I found that map earlier, but unless I'm missing something it doesn't tell me which talkgroup is used by troopers in each county.

So for instance, would a trooper patrolling Halifax county primarily use App 1 or App 2 as his dispatch channel? I am having trouble figuring this out.

as far as division 3, amherst county and south is App 1, nelson north is App 2.

a general rule to go by is the division's #1 channel is going to include that division county.
I.E.- App 1 takes the county of appomattox.

This is correct for CPK 1 & 2, respectively.
