They are using DMR when police is on P25? That seems a bit silly to me. Sounds like an interop nightmare.

I have been listening the past 5 days straight (including now) & all DMR digital, no more analog.

Ch1 159.645 Rptr Color Code "CC 04" (clear)

Their FCC license shows Ch1 transmits from summit of Mt Tom & Soldier's Home. Ch1 booms into Worc Cnty full scale.

Someone here said Holyoke is using Kenwood NX-5200 VHF portables, and I'm guessing Kenwood NX-5700 VHF mobiles. I looked at the specs on Kenwood's website, awesome radios that one radio covers P25, DMR (i.e. MotoTRBO), NexEdge & analog. So they can simply change down or up a channel and be on the opposite digital format to instantly talk to the opposite department. Unsure why one chose P25 & the other chose DMR/MotoTRBO, why not choose the same?
