I'm much too far away to confirm it, one way or the other. However, looking at the notes on the system in the database:
Copperas Cove Trunking System, Cooperas Cove, Texas - Scanner Frequencies

The description indicates system voice as "ProVoice & Analog", and there's also a 'news update', "EDACS System Key (ESK) reported in use on this system".

If they are, indeed, using ProVoice, and possibly ESK, then you would not be able to monitor any talkgroup that was ProVoice. That most likely would be the PD talkgroups. There are no ProVoice capable scanners. For more on why ProVoice cannot be monitored, see this stickied thread. While the comments are regarding San Antonio's ProVoice system, they would apply to other systems using the same transmissions.

Thanks I really thought I was doing something wrong. That sticky was pretty old you figure 6 years later they would have something to listen to provoice.
