For some reason the Adult Probation and Parole service in Cache County likes to Talkgroup-hop. And generally not on their own TGs!

For 2+ years they used 29952 HEX750 which is allocated and used occasionally by Paradise Fire. They recently they showed up on 6624 which is not in the database, but shows in some of the "dusty old lists" as AP&P. OK that makes sense.

Then in just the last week they showed up on 29216 Ops 10 for N Utah aka Rich County Ops 2. Yesterday they went to 29184, N Utah Ops 9, aka Rich County Ops 1. This is verified by the RID's and late night checking on clients."

One asked the other "do you think Rich County will mind?" the other answered "nah, but UCAN might." hmmm

The irony of course is they are charged with seeing that their clients "do the right thing." Don't know why they didn't stay on 6624 which likely belongs to AP&P.

They probably think that they're being "sneaky" & channel-hopping so that any of their clients with scanners won't be able to keep-up with their whereabouts -- morons!

Down here in SW Utah (Washington County), either I just haven't found AP&P's radio channels, or (more likely) they still just use VHF & normally stay on the UHP Cedar dispatch channels. I hear the 38A-### units sign-in & out of service with UHP Cedar & also advise they'll be out at "Location ### on our list" to make contact with a client, etc. but never really hear any car/car traffic, surveillances, etc.

A couple months ago the AP&P agents assigned to my county really showed how dumb they are (sorry, but the truth hurts...). Supposedly they heard something that sounded like a gunshot in their parking lot (same bldg UHP has their office in, & Washington SO has their HQ at. A couple AP&P guys rush out, see a suspicious car & recognize the driver as being one of their clients, & they make contact with the driver. The driver flees in the car, and AP&P guys pursue.

It's only after several minutes of this speeding pursuit down a major, busy road (State Route 9) & into a subdivision where they lose the suspect that the AP&P idiots decide to get on their radio & advise UHP Cedar that they'd been in a pursuit & lost the vehicle. Had the AP&P morons gotten on the radio right away & local LE been notified, the bad guy (now wanted for fleeing & eluding, reckless driving, assault on an officer [supposedly he almost ran-over one of the AP&P guys in the parking lot]) probably would have been found by a local. UHP Cedar lets the locals know, but now as AP&P is driving around looking for the suspect vehicle, they don't know where they are, and pass bogus location info on the UHP Cedar, who passes it on the the local Washington County central dispatch "Control," at SGPD & it gets relayed out on several local LE channels, so various local LEOs & UHP cars are running 10-40 & 10-39 trying to find the AP&P knuckleheads, who at one moment say they're near the Chevron gas station in Hurricane, but the next moment say they're at the Maverick's gas station at I-15 exit 13 & as the poor LEOs caught-up in AP&P's wild goose chase keep reporting back to their dispatchers that they're at where AP&P said they were, UHP Cedar tries contacting the 38A unit on the radio for an update & there's no answer (which of course makes all the other LEOs get nervous, and go 10-39 on busy streets...). Finally about 40 min or so after this cluster-phuck started, an AP&P guy calls UHP Cedar on a cell-phone & this guy must be a Sgt or Lt because he actually kinda knows where he is (along I-15). Other LEOs finally catch-up with the Amateur Police & Pandemonium guys, there's a minor stand-off with the suspect before the smartest creature on-scene -- a K-9 -- takes the bad guy into custody.

Always easy to arm-chair quarterback... and yet, we wonder why encryption is becoming the flavor of the new age.
