I can't speak for Escondido, but no plans for full encryption as a RCS policy.
I think Escondido Police Inquiry (2303) uses encryption when transmitting station-to-officer but not officer-to-station.I don't know if you guys/girls have noticed this...not good at all. I have noticed that Sheriff and Escondido PD have been using alot of encrypted lately...more than I have seen in a long time....hope it aint going full encryption
We were missing rural San Diego county and virtually no one was submitting any Imperial county, so I made the decision to cutover the legacy RCS talkgroups. From what I've seen and heard the virtual switch was thrown between the Smartzone system and the P25 system and no talkgroups were changed (the Zone controller was already a "P25 system core" using P25 talkgroups for quite some time, and SmartX was used to convert back to the old multiply by 16 Smartzone talkgroup format). However the legacy Smartzone RCS database was pretty out of date and as a result some out of date talkgroups definitely made it into the new system. Please kindly submit a correction, point it out here or shoot me an email or PM if you find deprecated talkgroups and I'll be happy to delete them back out.I thought that only confirmed IN USE talkgroups were going to be added to the NextGen database as they migrated yet the Del Mar Fire Dispatch, CMD and TAC talkgroups that haven't been used in (ever?) are in there. Can anyone confirm if they actually use any of them or is this just a dump from the old RCS database converted?
