From a public safety standpoint, Jefferson County is divided into Divisions 1, 2 and 3. These divisions roughly divide the northern, central and southern thirds of the county.




Public Safety Radio Communications

There are only a few agencies that routinely use standalone frequencies for daily communications. Almost all public safety traffic in the county occurs on the Jefferson County 911 Trunked Radio System.

Known frequencies aside from the 911 TRS which are in use by public safety agencies in the county are listed below.

Jefferson County 911 Trunked Radio System

Public safety communications within Jefferson County are served primarily by the Jefferson County Public Safety TRS. Most, but not all, agencies are dispatched by Jefferson County 911. All public safety agencies within the county have a presence on the 911 System TRS. This Motorola Type II 800 Mhz trunked system is currently supporting only analog voice. For those of you who are curious, MDT data is transmitted on conventional 800 mhz frequencies and not over the trunked system - and it cannot be decoded with any programs you may find on the Internet, so don't bother.


Frequencies for this system are:

SiteNameFreqs    
001 (1) Rebanded851.16250c 851.41250c 853.23750c 853.66250c 858.46250


  • The red frequencies are rotating control channels. As such you should make sure and program all four of those frequencies in your scanner, even if you are configuring your scanner for control-channel only trunking mode. The control channel rotates every 24 hours or so.


Some agencies have their own talkgroups. Agencies without their own talkgroups can be found on one of the division talkgroups.


Certain agencies including Sheriff's Office, Steubenville PD, Toronto PD, and Steubenville FD have their own dispatchers as well. Other agencies rely solely upon Jefferson County 911 Center for dispatch.


In addition to public safety agencies you will find school buses for Toronty City Schools, Buckeye Local and Indian Creek on the system.

Why are all of those OSP talkgroups considered local? Because OSP units from nearby posts are often patrolling in our area and may sometimes be heard on their talkgroups. Also, the OSP is consolidating dispatching.
