What are the frequencies used by the FBI, US Marshalls, etc. in Union county?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Most federal law enforcement frequencies are encrypted. Stick to the locals.

Just relaying RR policy - but it is against RR policy to have federal law enforcement frequencies/talkgroups on the feeds. This goes for local law enforcement sensitive channels as well. Dispatch and general tac channels are ok, but discrete tac channels are a no-no. (Unless something has changed since I got an email about this a few months ago).

On a side note, although much federal LE activity is encrypted, some does sneak through in the clear. I'm not aware of any particular frequencies in your area as I am in Cincinnati, but you may want to keep an ear on the common allocations that can typically be found on radio reference or a simple google search. FBI and Marshals in the 162-174 band and DEA in the 410-420 band. US Marshals also use MARCS, although the info is not published officially on RR, read through this thread for some reported talkgroups:

Hope this helps

Have you tried searching the basic channel plans for Federal users? Not all channels are active like a local police dept, so you usually only hear activity when something is on-going.

Try 137-144 , 148-150.7500, 162-174, 406-420 for a basic search.
Make Notes [Tones etc] and post back what you hear in a few weeks.

As for the NAY sayers, NOT all Federal traffic is Encrypted. There is still plenty going on for US to listen to. Just a little patience is needed.

Because nobody has submitted the info.
Or confirmed it. Lots of speculation, but no confirmation.
