In a City Council Meeting dated 9/22/2015, approval was given to Police Chief Dan Doyle by City Council to purchase new radio equipment. In the meeting notes, it is detailed that the following equipment is to be purchased:

• 800MHZ P25 Trunked Radio and MCC 7500 Dispatch System
• MotoTRBO Digital Trunked Radio System

What is the best scanner needed to pickup this new system when they make the switch? I know I will need a P25 Phase II, do I also need to be MotoTRBO decodable?

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

PS: The reason I am asking this now, in January of 2017 - is I have received word that the equipment has been purchased and is beginning to be installed. Would have to have interruption in listening capabilities.

They have MotoTrbo, but from how it was explained to me by Creative Communications - only the other city departments (Water, Parks, etc) will be utilizing the MotoTrbo. The PD will be utilizing P25 Phase II.
