LEERN End of Life

With all Central Ohio law enforcement agencies now on 800mhz and a common radio template coordinated so everyone has access to operational talk-groups, the patch to the state’s Law Enforcement Emergency Radio Network or LEERN is being discontinued. Officers and agencies are encouraged to do directly to the dispatch or TAC channel to contact an agency. When requesting the Chopper from CPD, they will come directly to your agency talk-group for communication. LEERN will be removed from the template during the next reprogramming.

We also have LAW MUTUAL , located in zones 6 and 9, used/monitored by all agencies in Delaware County, NRECC agencies and Worthington PD. The equivalent in Franklin County would be SO-25 which can be found in zone 28. Most importantly, your dispatcher can set you up on one of the many regional TAC talk-groups that are available for inter-agency use.

This will be effective at 0600 on November 1st.

Post Migration

Post migration is coming along. Trying to stay true to our word, we have two XTS-5000 radios programmed and ready to be picked up at NRECC by each department. You can stop in anytime today or tomorrow to get them.

Please play with the radio as much as possible and give us the feedback on it. As you get feedback, please send it to us so we can troubleshoot issues and get them corrected, don’t wait till the end.

We will expect your feedback and the radios back on Friday 2/10/17.

We have locked on our programming schedule and here is what we have set up.

2/13 & 2/14 – Washington Fire

2/15 & 2/16 – Norwich Fire

2/17 – Catch up any radios that are missed

2/20 & 2/21 – Worthington Fire

2/22 & 2/23 – Pleasant Valley Fire

These radios are mostly in use by crew leaders and supervisors/management staff.

If someone has one of these radios, they can drop them off on Monday at the service center between the hours of 1000-1400 or Tuesday and Wednesday between the hours of 1000-1400 at NRECC.

Post Migration

On Monday 10/24, a meeting was held at NRECC to discuss the post migration template.

Present were Paul Richmond and Kris Harris (NRECC), Captain Pat Mulligan (Worthington Fire), Chief Mark Kidd (Pleasant Valley Fire) and Lieutenant George Sorge (NTFD). Lieutenant Kevan Redman (WTFD) was away at a meeting.

A tentative template was agreed on that will serve all agencies.

Columbus Fire went back to the drawing board and made revisions to their template, which is the base for ours. Our standardized template will be posted later this week when the Columbus fire revisions are included.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Richmond.
