Welcome to the St. Louis City Services (Analog) collaboration article, a Deprecated Public Trunked Radio System located in Missouri, United States.
This is where you, the user, may index any articles you develop for scanning related topics for this Trunked Radio System.
Please note: This Trunk Radio System is owned exclusively by the St Louis Metropolitan Police Dept. They have complete control over the operations of this system. The Police Dept is NOT operated by the City of St Louis. The Police Dept is managed by the BOARD OF POLICE COMMISSIONERS. Therefore, the State of Missouri runs the Police Dept. NOT THE CITY OF ST LOUIS.
As such, the Trunk Radio System is STATE OWNED. NOT CITY OWNED. None of the city public works users of the system have any decision making powers over the radio system. Nor does the City of St Louis or the mayor's office. The Mayor of the City of St Louis gets a single vote on the Board of Police Commissioners. I recommend visiting the State of Missouri for more info on this subject.

CSU = Crime Suppression Unit - a new initiative by Chief Mokwa, similar to and somewhat of a replacement of the old Anti-Crime Unit. This unit operates primarily on the B of I channel. Typically a dispatcher works the B of I channel, but the units will operate as if it was a Tac channel.
SODD stands for Special Operation Deployment Division. It’s a legacy name that has stuck around even though operations have changed. The SODD channel is basically a dispatch channel for all the miscellaneous divisions. Specialized units within the department like ETU (Evidence Technician Units), Traffic Safety, Citywide detective units (i.e.: Homicide, Sex Crimes, Child Abuse, Juvenile, etc.). It also is used for Non-Police department groups like the Sheriff’s Deputies, MODOT traffic assist units, Metropolitan Taxicab Commission Enforcement Agents.
