Pardon the derailing here, but can I please make a request that we stop labeling talkgroups and channels identically, like the two "Fire Roam" channels in this list? I don't understand how this is useful - how do you know which "Fire Roam" you're listening to?

The "RCMP Call" groups at the bottom of the list are also suffering from the same problem.

Interop Zone

PPSTN radios have all been reprogrammed with a new Interop zone.
I am asking for information on this new zone from any Saskatchewan
members that may know more about this.

The information in the database about these Talkgroups is now obsolete.

Each provincial zone has it's own Interop Talkgroup and I am looking for the locations
were each is being used.

This must be a case of verbatim publishing of the submission. I'd have to see if this is my work or my predecessors. In my case, the practice would be to list as RCMP Call 912, RCMP 913. I will fix it in the mean time.

Please, if anyone knows, help us keep the database timely and correct.

TG 913 is used in zone 4 for Announce P25 system failure in progress and then used to confirm P25 system fully operational again.

I think Saskatchewan Government Special Events Zone has 16 TG as well. They can be accessed by all users, there should be another 5 that aren't listed in the DB.

OFC in Melville

OFC unit SK677 RID 2262135 on OFC Main ops 1. This unit had a second radio RID 2264116 on Interop 2.
Other OFC units were 2262020 and 2262126.
Interop 2 seams to always be to the east north east of Regina.

Saskatchewan P.R.T. scanning

The Protection and Response Team (PRT) launched August 2017.

The PRT consists of 258 armed officers who will have arrest and detention powers, including municipal police, RCMP, Ministry of Highways Vehicle Enforcement Officers (H.T.P.) and Ministry of Environment Conservation Officers (C.O.'s).

The PRT has made significant progress, including:

The Launch of a dedicated Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods unit in Prince Albert.
Creation of Intervention Circles that use the Saskatchewan Hub framework in Muskoday First Nation and Ochapowace First Nation.
Purchase of Automatic License Plate Recognition Technology for PRT officers.

The addition of three policing positions to the province’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) in Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon to focus on guns, gangs and drugs.
Reassignment of 10 RCMP positions to provide relief to detachments experiencing staff shortages.

Completion of Saskatchewan’s first Rural Crime Innovation Challenge, which has led to the development of an app-based tracking system to alert land owners about irregular activity related to their property.

120 of the new team will be RCMP and municipal police officers — including 60 presently working with Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan, and another 30 police roles that will be re-purposed. Highway commercial vehicle enforcement officers (H.T.P.) will make up another 40, and 98 will be on duty Ministry of Environment conservation officers of the province's total of 140 C.O.'s.

H.T.P officers will be armed and will — along with conservation officers who already carry guns — be able to respond to calls and make arrests.
I have not heard H.T.P officers on INOP 1. They must be upgrading their equipment and training for the firearms use at this time.
The PRT will focus on improving response times to property crimes; enhancing uniform visibility in rural areas; increasing enforcement of drug trafficking on highways; and reducing serious collisions.

I think that the formation of the PRT perhaps came as a result of the farmer Gerald Stanley's shooting of Colten Boushie and some other events.

I have been hearing lots of PRT action on Talkgroup 151 INOP 1.
Yorkton Traffic Services units and Conservation Officers for B.O.L.O
RCMP Regina T.S. and Moose Jaw C.O.s for # 1 Highway closure for a blizzard.
Nipawin / Melfort C.O.s and RCMP at location of the Humboldt Bronco's bus M.V.C.
Spiritwood C.O.s and RCMP pursuit following a B.O.L.O.
Candle Lake and Christopher Lake C.O.s and RCMP coordinate forest fire fighting and evacuation's.

And much more that I can not post here, all in the open and unencrypted. Other RR members are telling me about INOP use.
All PRT units that I have seen in use are equipped with video cameras all around the roof of their units for a 360 degree view video recording.
Local RCMP Traffic Services and Conservation Officer's units recently equipped with 360 video camera systems and license plate readers.
I see that INOP 1 is being monitored by local C.O.'s the EMS and FD.

I started seeing RCMP Traffic Services units on super grid gravel roads last summer and thought that's unusual.
If you are not hearing any action on TG 151 it is because no user is affiliated to that TG on the tower site you are monitoring.

All PPSTN radios have the INOP RAMP / ZONE in them.

If your local F.D. / E.M.S. / RCMP / SASKPOWER has a radio on INOP 1 you will hear lots of action.

Your monitoring ability may be enhanced by:
Asking your local volunteer fire department to turn on and tune one of their radios to INOP 1.
Becoming a volunteer Fire Fighter or First Responder in your area.

Using Unitrunker / Pro96com to view site activity to get a greater understanding of users affiliated / logging onto and using your local site.
While I type this to post later on RR, I can see RCMP RID 2211372 Regina GIS communicating with RCMP RID 2213891 Saskatoon GIS on TG 49 TAC # 6. Both are on my local site. A Bust coming in town soon ?

I also see a login on TG 6133 RID 2264707. Who is this now ?
RCMP RID 2214492 is calling on INOP # 4.

I maybe partially deaf but I can still see what is going on. It's better to be deaf than blind. Encryption is not the solution.
Encryption works very well when it is enabled by each user on the system.
I am hearing users that think they are secure but are not. There are secure zones / ramps and open zones / ramps all with the same Talkgroups loaded into the radios.

It's all too easy to be off encryption and be unaware of it.We did not give up monitoring in Saskatchewan.Police are all encrypted.

Ambulance services are all dispatched via M.D.T. No dispatch communications over the air.

All the volunteer fire department's members receive text messages for all calls. No dispatch communications over the air.

You guys in Alberta don't give in or ever give it up ! Ok !
If anyone asks I'm Unaffiliate or logged out.
Cheers

INOP

Lots of action on the inop talkgroups in Saskatoon.
INOP 5 is for Saskatoon - SPS are always monitoring INOP 5 with a desk mounted XTL radio in the dispatch room.

Yesterday at 6pm Saskatoon Police had a pursuit go out of town on highway 16.

SPS advised battlefords RCMP to intercept the stolen vehicle.

2231930 SPS K9
2231933 SPS AIR 1

PM me if you want the recordings.
