METCOM-911 Center dispatches for all the police and fire agencies in McLean County, except for Bloomington PD/FD, ISU PD, and the Illinois State Police who all self-dispatched.

IMPORTANT: If you want to listen to the following agencies, they are using the Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS. You will need a digital scanner capable of monitoring APCO25 trunked systems to monitor the following departments:

  • Bloomington Police [TG 30378]
  • Bloomington Fire [TG 4999 and 4995]
  • Normal Police [TG 30366]
  • Normal Fire [TG 30372]
  • ISU PD [TG 4025]
  • McLean County Sheriff and rural PD's (Bellflower PD, Chenoa PD, Colfax PD, Danvers PD, Downs PD, Ellsworth PD, Hudson PD, Heyworth PD, Lake Bloomington PD {"LB"}, Leroy PD, Lexington PD {“LX”} , Village of McLean PD {“MC”}, and Stanford PD) [TG 30358]
  • County Animal Control [TG 30373]
  • County Coroner [TG 30358] {"Edward units"}
  • County Juvenile Detention Center [TG 30377] {"JDC units'}
  • Illinois State Police [TG 13000]


County Fire and EMS are on VHF except Towanda and Dale Twp fire who are on Starcom21.

No public safety activity remains on the McLean County (METCOM) EF Johnson Multi-Net II TRS. The frequencies have been recycled to Starcom21.

Bloomington PD

Bloomington PD is dispatched by Bloomington Dispatch on Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS Site 229 TG 30378. They are no longer using the UHF repeaters.

BPD Starcom21 talkgroup notes:

  • 30378--BPD Dispatch
  • 4976--BPD ch 2 - details
  • 4977--BPD ch 3 - alternate dispatch when 10-33 traffic on ch 1
  • 4978--BPD "ENC 1" (dispatch P25 clear, mobiles Encrypted)
  • 4980--encrypted
  • 4981--encrypted
  • 4983--encrypted
  • 4984--encrypted
  • 4985--
  • 4992--BPD car-car "2" or "Ch 2", encrypted

Note: BPD reportedly has a separate channel (unknown TG#) for Crisis Negotiation Unit (CNU).


Old system information:
BPD units used to use 'channel 2' 155.1300 (CSQ) simplex to communicate car-car while enroute to calls, but now use TG 4992 (encrypted) for that purpose. TG 4992 appears to be only used from their car mobile radios, not the portables. TG 4992 is referred to as Ch2 (not to be confused with 4976 which is ch2 in the portables).

  • Normal PD started using the Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS on February 21, 2006. The old UHF channels are no longer used by NPD, but are included for historical purposes:
    • 460.0250 (103.5) old Normal PD 1 (dispatch)
    • 453.9500 (103.5) old Normal PD 2 (alternate, car-car, events)

    • 453.9000 (103.5) old Normal PD 6 (old ISU PD dispatch)

Normal Fire

Normal Fire is paged by METCOM and operates on Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS Site 229
talkgroup 30372. If you are close to a fire and without a P25 capable scanner, you can monitor the Normal Fire mobile extender repeater on 159.0525 (100.0). Look for fireground communication to be on 153.8300 (69.3) MABAS Fireground Red.

  • Normal has three fire stations (see this link for station addresses and equipment inventory).

McLean County Sheriff

McLean County Sheriff ("Paul units") is dispatched by METCOM on Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS Site 229, Site 202, and Site 231 talkgroup 30358 (often TG 30358 can be heard on Site 207 Pontiac). TG 30359 ch3 is used when ch 1 has emergency traffic. Courthouse security uses TG 30360 ch 4. Rural PD's occasionally use 30362 "ch5" for car-car communications.

Other departments using Starcom21 TG 30358 include: Bellflower PD, Chenoa PD, Colfax PD, Danvers PD, Downs PD, Ellsworth PD, Hudson PD, Heyworth PD, Lake Bloomington PD {"LB"}, Leroy PD, Lexington PD {“LX”}, Village of McLean PD {“MC”}, Stanford PD, and McLean County Coroner ("Edward").

McLean County Fire and EMS

McLean County Fire radio identifiers


McLean County EMA

The main talkgroup to monitor when storms approach is TG 30357 on Starcom21. McLean County EMA does have an administrative talkgroup (TG 30364) on Starcom21. The village EMA centers use radio identifiers (see map) to report storm updates to the EOC. Since 2013 EMA has mostly abandoned using 453.7000 (103.5) for regular usage due to the FCC narrowbanding mandate. For damage assessment, 453.6750 (173.8) has been utilized in the past.

To get a regional perspective on the storm's progress, McLean County EMA gives and receives updates from Lincoln WX on Starcom21 TG 30324.

Other frequencies are used locally to report storm conditions.

ISU Police

As of October 2006, ISU PD now uses Starcom21 Motorola P25 TRS Site 229 for dispatch and operations.

ISU Starcom21 Talkgroups
4025 - ISU PD (dispatch)
4026 - ISU PD (ch 2)

  • Previously, ch1 453.9000 (103.5) was ISU PD and ch2 453.6500 (103.5) was Parking Services/Housing. Housing has inherited the old ISU PD 453.900 repeater while parking remains on 453.650 [4/7/07].
  • ISU PD units are in the "100's" series and are self dispatched. Post is "Illinois". Along with the standard 10-codes, ISU PD uses its own radio code system which is outlined here
  • Fire Department response to ISU is from Normal Fire Department's Fire Station #2 604 N Adelaide St (see 'Normal Fire' on this page).
  • ISU Environmental Health/Safety officers use 453.200 (103.5). This repeater is not usually very active except for emergencies (ex. science lab chemical spill).

ISU Facilities

Most ISU operations are now on the Clear Talk Connect Plus TRBO system. Avideo about their radios can be found here.

The following is prior to BPD switching to Starcom21

BPD units at the Coliseum often use the "Baker" radio ids, such as "Baker 1", and usually use the 453.1500 repeater. Once or twice I heard some units at the Coliseum on 453.925.

During the 1/26/08 Kid Rock concert, the BPD units at the Coliseum used 453.925. Quite a few patrol units had to respond, so there was some activity on 453.1500 (the regular dispatch channel). Bloomington Fire/Rescue had to respond a few times and they used 154.1600.

2010 McLean County Fair frequencies:

  • 453.9250 (127.3) Bloomington PD

2008 McLean County Fair frequencies:

  • 453.9250 (127.3) was all that I heard used. It's possible there may have been some simplex or low-power repeater frequencies used but none that I could receive from home.

2007 McLean County Fair frequencies:

  • 453.9250 (127.3) was all that I heard used. It's possible there may have been some simplex or low-power repeater frequencies used but none that I could receive from home.

I wasn't close enough to hear if any of the above simplex freqs were used by fair staff. In my notes archive, I had noted hearing Fair ops on a 461.150 repeater ten or so years ago (the only license for this freq is for Supreme Communications so possibly they were using rental radios). In addition to the database frequencies listed above, the Interstate Center holds license WPLR462 for a repeater on 452.1250 DPL 251.
