So probably shouldn't add that TG then. Haha"Local" talkgroups are usually used for whatever that community needs, it could be a channel used to coordinate between departments, as an extra channel for Car-Car traffic etc. A common situation in suburban Chicago was for police to use the PW channel as car-car, especially in the evenings and weekends. The "Local" channels often replace that and give a channel to allow for inter-agency activities like parades and fires.
I have most of the nearby municipalities programmed in my scanners. TONS of information not normally heard on the dispatch channels, as Rich described above. The surveillance, tactical, undercover, and gang units are encrypted, but the rest of the routine car-car traffic can be, and is always worth listening to!
Both agencies dispatched on the STARCOM21 statewide trunked system. Villa Park (and Lombard PDs) dispatched on TG 2607, Addison PD (currently patched together with Westmont PD) on either TG 2601 or 2604.I used to live in Addison...Can anyone tell me of what TG or frequencies I can find Villa Park/ Addison Law enforcement on ?.
