When an officer is yelling commands at a suspect, why is this transmitted over the air at times? I would think he would be too occupied to depress the “talk” button in this situation.
This. It's not a hot mic or emergency button press. Nothing unusual about:aside from emergency call with voice (what MSI calls this), it's also what officers do because they want to get on record that the person is being ordered to comply, and give dispatch and all on the channel situational awareness of what is going down.
