What are SHP 900 series callsigns?

Example: E930 (heard while monitoring Troop E on 800).

Thanks.

It's been a few years since I've listened to SHP. Antenna restrictions ended any serious monitoring for me on low band.

I'm trying figure out all the changes now that I can listen again on 800.

I think the letter refers to the troop number. Example, here in Wilmington...B troop. They are B###.

Normally called out as B-BOY.

That's one thing I know hasn't changed.

Letter is Troop. Next number is District. Last two digits are unit number.

C2 would be Troop C, District 2.

Go here for District breakdown by county: http://www.nccrimecontrol.org/Index2.cfm?a=000003,000014,000745

Click on the various local offices links.

9 Units are the old DMV/Motor Carrier Units new call numbers. Instead of EW__, it's now E930.

Just a guess here, but in Salisbury Troop E, would the new call number E934 be broken down as follows?

E - Troop E Salisbury
9 - DMV/Motor Carrier Enforcment
3 - Division 3 (Rowan - much like the E3 cars are)
4 - Car or trooper number

The Initial Response To You Was Correct. All Of The Commercial Motor
Vehicle Enforcement Cars Are Now In The 900 Series. Their Car Number
Will Begin With Their Respective Troop Assignment, Such As C-932,
Indicating That This Is A Mce Car Out Of Troop C, And So On. In Response
To The Question Related To Hearing A C-2 Car (wayne County) And A C-5 Car
(wilson Or Greene County) On The Same Channel, This Is Because They Are
Operating Off The Same Frequency To Communicate With Raleigh, As Well
As C-6 Cars (johnston County). When Talking With Cars In Wilson, Wayne
And Greene Counties, Raleigh Will Normally Xmit Off The Farmville Tower
And When Talking With Cars In Johnston, Raleigh Will Normally Xmit Off
The Archers Lodge Tower. Hope This Helps In Your Future Monitoring.

Fort Mill, S.C. (just south of Charlotte, N.C.)
>> E - Troop E Salisbury
>> 9 - DMV/Motor Carrier Enforcment
>> 3 - Division 3 (Rowan - much like the E3 cars are)
>> 4 - Car or trooper number

Clarify, please, "KIB."

In the above example, I would think that "34" would be the officer's number, rather than "3" indicating a district.

Otherwise, each district would be limited to 10 DMV / Carrier Enforcement officers. Off the top of my head, I presume Mecklenberg and Wake Counties would have more officers than that assigned to the district ... but I might be wrong.

Thanks for any clarification.

Ref Motor Carrier Enforcement Cars

Jeff, There Is Not A Designator In The Commercial Motor Vehicle
Enforcement Cars Numbers As Is The Case With The Troopers. You
Do Not Have An Assignment Of Districts As Such With The Cmve Cars.
So, The E-934 Car Number Does Not Necessarily Indicate He/she Would
Work A Specefic District (county). There Just Are Not Enough To
Spread Out That Way For Now.

Exactly right, it will mostlikely be somewhere between 8-10 years before the state has enough MCE officers to assign to all districts......thats what happens when you have to re-train all your officers when you switch agencies!

same. they are probably detective or vice units. they could also be higher ranking members of the sheriff's office.

There are some designators that will give away troopers ranks. Generally troopers with supervisory rank and up can be distinguished.

Line Sgts. & First Sgts. have unit numbers that specify them. Troop F, District 4 - F411 is District First Sgt.; F422, F423, F424, etc. are Line Sgts.

Unmarked cars have no bearing, per se, on the trooper's designator. The General Assembly sets the amount of unmarked SHP cars by statute.

You will see line troopers with unmarked cars. Also, first sgts. and up usually drive unmarked units.
