There were supposed to go live March 1st but haven't heard a thing yet. Talked to a female officer I know from South Bend PD and she said they were issued 800 radios 2 years ago and it still just sits in her trunk and they have yet to do any training on them. That was about a week ago..
Actually what's kind of funny.. (and if it's any indication) this was posted back in October 2011 in another post here: " So the SBPD is switching to 800mhz starting tomorrow with full conversion to begin on Monday.... anyone have any info regarding this move (freq's, etc..)." Could be Christmas at this rate lol
I live in South Bend and have been reading the threads regarding this move.Believe me, this city is so screwed up, both polictially and financially, it could be years before this happens. Not to mention,the recent resignation of the Chief of Police due to a federal investigation.
Some new info on SBPD going to SAFE-T, the past couple weeks they have been doing training for all the shifts on the new radios. Im guessing within the next month or two, they'll be switching over. For those that have the ability to get the SBPD SAFE-T talkgroups, listen in. I noticed particularly at night is when the majority of their training is going on.
