I've heard about Police Departments/Sheriff's Offices having computers in their vehicles and getting their calls through that. I was just curious for anyone who knows of this in their area if it is indeed "silent." A little while ago our local EMS went to computers in the Ambulances. What happens when I listen is the Medic unit will acknowledge a call and then the dispatcher will verbally repeat the call the Medic unit acknowledged, therefore, it's not really "silent." Just wondering if anyone out there knows anything about this. I'm really guessing it depends on the agency. My local Police Department is heading in that direction and I'm just curious how much I'm going to miss.
