Primary Talk Groups

 

v      NC POL-1 - Primary talk group for Bellevue, Medina and Clyde Hill Police.

 

It is generally used for radio transmissions related to on-going incidents.  It is primarily used for dispatching both emergency and non-emergency calls.  If NC POL-1 is to be closed for emergency traffic only, units not assigned to the emergency will be advised to move to NC TAC-1.

 

v      NC TAC-1 - Secondary talk group for Bellevue, Medina and Clyde Hill Police.

 

When NC POL-1 is closed for emergency traffic, units not assigned to the emergency call will be moved to this talk group.  NC TAC-1 will now be used for radio transmissions related to on-going incidents.  It also takes over the primary dispatching for both emergency and non-emergency calls.

 

Officers should limit use of NC TAC-1 for any non-essential transmissions.  If they wish to communicate with other units they are to use the NC C/C 1 talk group.  Any other radio communications can be made over the primary dispatch talk group.

 

v      NC DATA - Primary talk group for records checks and information retrieval for all NORCOM agencies.

Additional talk groups, their designations and use are found in NORCOM policy and procedure.
