I don't know why he's shutting down the major Troop office's that are along the interstate . Troop L was lacking dispatchers over nights . so everyone got transferred to Tulsa . I'm not 100% sure but almost bet Troop C got it's dispatchers sent to Tulsa . I wonder if Troop K got shut down since its near I-35 ?
Heard some comms today that confirmed Tulsa is now contact for Troop C. An outside agency (Muskogee PD or MCSO) tried to contact OHP Muskogee on C-1 and was advised that Tulsa was now the Dispatch for Troop C.
Well not sure if this is a good thing or bad.... you lose the local map knowledge when call comes in but maybe this will get the state to get the 700mhz conventional repeaters up faster for the coverage..... of the MANY dead spots
Texas has gone through the same type consolidation. I do not believe that OHP is going to shut down the Troops as they will still be manned and the buildings will be in use, simply each Troop will no longer have a communication center in the building. MDC's have helpedd reduce the radio traffic which is a good thing.
That makes sense. With technology where it is at being able to link voice (radio) and data (laptops) over distance it’s a duplication of resources and waste of money to have a comm center for every troop.
