• 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:

The following was recently updated in the RR database:

57968 e27 D Chester PD Dispatch

The only comms I've heard ... and I admit I don't normally listen to the Chester site ... on the talkgroup has been exchanges between Great Falls PD officers and the Chester County Sheriffs dispatchers.

I'm not sure if the sheriffs and the city PD have a unified dispatch facility, so I'm curious if the above I-D for the talkgroup is an error, or if I am misunderstanding the use of the talkgroup.

Any clarification is appreciated. Thanks !

I was the one who submitted it, I never heard anything about Great Falls PD on that talkgroup however it could be what that talkgroup is I just assumed that it was Chester PD but if you have identified it then it should be changed in the databse correctly, My apologies for submitting wrong info.Also this talkgroup is simulcasted off the Lancaster site.

I spoke with someone who works with the Great Falls Police Auxilliary and he told me that this TG (57968) is assigned to the Great Falls PD. He said that they have gone entirely over to 800MHz, though I don't hear them much.

I don't usually hear them much, usually just the female officer who transports prisoners from the jail in Great Falls to the Chester County Detention Center in Chester.

Thanks, DC, for the additional information. I wonder what the old VHF channel pair will be used for ?

>> My apologies for submitting wrong info.

No need to apologize, RM. If a channel or talkgroup gets limited use, it can be hard to figure what the purpose of the channel or talkgroup is. Which is why I asked on this forum.
