Question Forsyth Co. Sheriff Dispatch Talkgroups

The Forsyth County Sheriff Office has two dispatch channels. Does anyone know if these channels are used for different areas of the county, and if so, is there a map showing this?

As far as I know they use the second when they have units on a scene and want to "hold other traffic on that channel." They move the other units to channel 2 and have the on scene units continue on channel 1. Dispatch will then be on channel 2 until the situation on channel 1 is cleared.

Most other agencies I have monitored move the "on scene" units to a Tac channel and continue normal dispatch on the primary channel.

I have not done much monitoring ot FCSO in the last couple of years, things may have changed.
