Interesting article. Always thought it meant crime scene! Oh well.The CS units respond to "down and out" calls in place of AFR, so a different focus from securing city properties.
AFR program reduces non-emergency calls, improving response time
There is a difference between having a group with 3,000 radios and nearly half being mobile radios that takes a bunch of time. This is why large groups were linked between the two systems. It isn't difficult to hand a small group new radios and take their EDACS radios for the swtich.I thought City Security is/was on its own TG on the PV system? Why aren’t we hearing that same TG and 14016 on P25 light up at the same time if that’s who it is?
When they are checking citywide, it has nothing to do with the radio. They are checking all area commands for an available PSA....hence citywide.Chris, think you might be right. APD Dispatcher says will check “Citywide”all of the time for a PSA. Thought this was Citywide Tac but maybe not? I don’t hear any audio on the PV system and they don’t seem to switch to the City Tac Encrypted channel that I can tell. New channel maybe?
I do not have a "complete" list of APD's call signs. DP's have to look up a good number of them when they call on the radio! BCSO uses badge numbers....and on a side note, Rio Rancho PD uses man numbers. The call sign for BCSO and RRPD sticks with the officer throughout their career (or until promoted to a supervisory position) but APD's can change every shift bid.Lot's of great info Kevin. New systems and call signs can be very confusing. Do you have an updated complete list of call signs for APD and BCSO?
