• 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 new Citrus Heights Police Department has hit the streets and the airwaves! Right now, they are in 2 channel operation, with "Adam and Charles units" on Ch 1 and "David and Motor units" on Ch 2.
They sure are making a mess of vehicle stops right off the bat, with maximum traffic enforcement as one of their major projects.
Be careful driving out there!

I wonder if CHPD will continue to run 2 dispatch channels going forward? Given the size and population of the city, that seems like overkill, but what do I know. Also, what do you guys think will happen with SD2 now that CHPD is on their own talkgroups? Will they continue to use it for just district 2, (again, that seems like overkill), or could there be another use for the talkgroup?

Rumor floating that a reorganization of radio channels is in order. Don't remember any specifics though.
Yeah, antfreq mentioned that they would be changing some unit identifiers soon, so maybe the channels will be shuffled as well. The Adrian Monk in me would like to have channel numbers match district numbers, (kind of like Sac PD does for everything but Ch 1), but as long as we can still monitor it I will be happy.

Origin of Citrus Heights PD?

Is CHPD an autonomous department chartered by the City of Citrus Heights, or is it a contract agency from the Sheriff's Office?

On June 15th, on my way to Metro Fire's Station 21, I was eastbound on Greenback coming from I80 and the city had a notification sign that traffic enforcement will be strictly enforced on June 26th.

I see now that they mean business. Hoorahs to CHPD!!!

I am waiting for the city to start cleaning up Sayonara.

They are a brand new police department, but were formally contracted by the Sacramento Sheriff's Department.

The Sacramento Bee has articles about the new department.

*formerly* contracted. That contract is now over and they are completely autonomous. Having difficulty getting into their channel. They don't seem to have MDCs, and it sounds like a bunch of laterals that carried over some habits from their old agencies. Hopefully it'll get more interesting, but it sounded pretty mundane.

As an aside, it's weird listening to their new numbering system (as well as SSD...). Hopefully it'll make more sense soon, but it's sounding goofy so far.

Best of luck to the new agency though. They've got a tough crowd to deal with out there.

Two of them cruised through our neighborhood yesterday. Looked pretty sharp. As a member of the Neighborhood Watch committee, I was happy to see them, as the SO never came through our area, so I gave them a big wave as I drove past them.

CHPD still holds contracts with SSD. There are a few services that CHPD requires, such as Air Support, CSI and K9. Some of the detective functions are still held by SSD.

Guess all those calls I dispatched in CH were fake.

The city of CH provided a level of service that they wanted while under contract. If they wanted more cops they could have contracted for more. Now that they have their own police department they are obviously putting more of an effort into their services. Just keep your fingers crossed that the city can continue to provide the excellent level of service they promise. Just remember folks, because you don't see a cop doesn't mean they aren't around ( or have been around ) Some of those CH streets require A LOT of attention, thus taking away from a taxpayers expected level of service.
