Press Release from Allegan County Sheriff's Department

Allegan County 800 Megahertz Radio System And your Home Scanner

Allegan County Central Dispatch begins use of the new 800 Megahertz radio System Beginning Monday, the 17th of January, Allegan County Central Dispatch and the law enforcement and EMS agencies of the county will begin to use updated 800 MHZ technology in their day-to-day communications.

With this new 800 megahertz technology the use of current VHF scanners will not be able to monitor the day-to-day communications between Allegan Central and the law enforcement agencies of Allegan County. The new radio system operates using digital encryption, meaning that scanner listeners will no longer be able to track daily activities for law enforcement or EMS (Emergency Medical Services) as you have in the past.

Allegan County Fire Departments will continue to use an enhanced VHF system and home listeners will continue to be able to listen to radio traffic between the Fire Departments of Allegan County and Allegan County Central Dispatch.

Allegan Central Dispatch Director Robert Larr knows of the disappointment that this will bring about to many residents. However the security of radio traffic has become a priority. Residents who currently listen to scanners regularly are asked not to call Central Dispatch asking for frequency ranges or to complain about the loss of

signal.

The phasing in of the 800 megahertz system will begin on January 17th and will continue until the entire law enforcement community is in the system. At that point the old VHF system will be taken out of service.

Currently, there are 10 tower sites for this system in-operation across the county: 1. Monterey Township 2. Otsego Township (Otsego) 3. Lee Township (Pullman) 4. Manlius Township (Fennville) 5. Saugatuck Township (Saugatuck) 6. Gun Plain Township (Plainwell) 7. Laketown Township (Holland) (leased space on existing tower) 8. Valley Township (Allegan) (leased space on existing tower) 9. Wayland Township (Wayland) (leased space on existing tower) 10. 911 center at the county's Dumont Complex (Allegan)
