Hey everybody...I'm just curious and have a question about what frequencies Lakewood Police are using. From what I understand, the law enforcement in Lakewood is no longer under contract with Pierce County Sheriff and they have formed their own independent police department.
I looked all over the database and couldn't find even a mention of them. Since their department is new, it's possible that it hasn't been updated, but I looked at the page for the local scanner site (Intercept Northwest?) and it says to see Pierce County S.O.
Is Lakewood PD dispatched by the Sheriff's Office, or do they have frequencies of their own that I couldn't find? I'm baffled on this-I'd understand if Lakewood was a community of 5,000 being dispached by the Sheriff's Office, but Lakewood is a community of about 60,000, so I would imagine that if they are not under contract with the S.O. any longer, they would have their own frequencies and dispatch center.
If anyone could shed some light on this, it would be much appreciated!
