When making traffic stops, ALL deputies are to report traffic stops over the radio.  (even if they have MDT's)  Then after 5 minutes the dispatcher will check on them.  If every thing is OK then every 15 minutes after that.  If not OK, a page alert tone is sent out and the nearest officer are requested to respond.  If officer reports back that everything is OK, then you will here "18-30 reports situation secure..... KYW825"   If officer is under a DUI TIPS code, then dispatcher may not call back to check as to not interfere with field sobriety testing.   (Officers may also ask for

Mobile Extenders  (this is the California Highway Patrol version, may be about the same?)
   F1: 155.505  with the primary tone.  (NOTE 1)
   F2: 155.505 1st alternate tone
   F3: 155.505 2nd alternate tone

Note 1: With the old hand-helds there was no way that two units from different areas (i.e. different dispatch frequencies) could have their extenders operational at an out-of-vehicle scene -- when an officer transmitted, both mobiles would be brought up.   The receiver of the extender has an attenuator making a low wattage HT usable for only a short distance (typically less than 50yds).  To make sure  there is only one extender being used within close proximity each vehicle extender sends a short burst tone to see if others are active.  If it is within range of another active extender it doesn't turn on at all.   The HT is then using the other vehicle radio (the one that was already turned on).

Now for the PL explanation.  There are three channels on CHP HT's that relate directly to the extender.  Channel 1 (also called PP or Person to Person) does not transmit any tone nor does it decode.  It is meant for HT  to HT use.  Channel 2 has a subaudible tone on transmit allowing the officer to talk to dispatch. (ie, transmits on the input freq of the lowband radio)  Channel 3 has a different subaudible tone on transmit allowing the officer  to talk to other officers. (ie, transmits on the output of the lowband radio) All channels are carrier squelch on the receive so that PP can be heard regardless of other traffic.

Here are the new Illinois Emergency Interoperability Communications 
System (IEICS) statewide Operations Plan (SOP) frequencies.
 
No PL and analog only operations are allowed on the Calling Channels 
while the PL of 156.7 Hz. (5A) is allowed under certain circumstances 
on the Operations channels. Also, digital operations are allowed on 
the Operations Channels after 2004 under certain circumstances.
 
IEMA controls these frequencies in Illinois. They will be authorized 
for use in multi-agency situations only, not as intra-agency 
communications channels. The VHF channels are simplex only while low 
power temporary repeaters may be authorized on the UHF channels. 
Simplex on the 453 side of the UHF is allowed and encouraged.

No PL is to be used on any of these channels.
 
Also to be considered are the ITAC channels. Although they do not 
appear in the IEMA plan they are set up in a similar way. All the 
below use a PL of 156.7 Hz nationwide and are controlled by the state 
designated law enforcement agency in each state. In Illinois the 
control agency is the ISP.

12/00 - Just announced that a "StarCom 21 Wireless" system will be purchased for the Illinois State Police for communications with a grant from Illinois FIRST.  More news to come soon hopefully.   Click here for more details.

Other information I have obtained on this subject:
IGNN: Budget Press Release             February 20, 2002        Governor's Budget Proposal Strengthens Commitment to Public Safety

SPRINGFIELD -- Governor George H. Ryan today proposed a Fiscal Year 2003 budget of $383 million for the Illinois State Police (ISP), including funds to train 100 new troopers and to decrease backlogs at state police forensic labs.

 “This budget reflects my commitment for Illinois to realize the full potential of DNA technology as a law enforcement and crime solving tool,” Governor Ryan said. “With this budget, the state police will be positioned to erase a backlog which stood at nearly 3,000 cases just two years ago.” Highlights of the FY 2003 budget include funds to continue the initiative begun last year to hire 80 forensic scientists and evidence technicians, and $2.3 million for outsourcing DNA cases while new scientists are in training.

 “We live in a different world now after the terrorist attacks,” Governor Ryan said. “Ensuring state police staffing is at optimum levels is an essential part of keeping our state safe.”

Ryan’s spending package also contains $109,500 for the second year of funding for the implementation of the statewide voice communications system, STARCOM21, and more than $24 million for capital costs. The new communications system will be operational by fall 2004, replacing the current system and equipment.

“Funding for troopers, forensics, and law enforcement communications demonstrates that public safety continues to be one of Governor  Ryan’s highest priorities,” said ISP Director Sam W. Nolen.

---
      The ILL State Police signed a contract with Motorola on a state wide trunk system . It will be digital and will use the 800 mgz and 700 mgz, switching back and forth. Who was it a while back that said we really dont need the 700mhz band in the 780XLT. They will be using a new type of radio from Motorola. As reported on CARMA the contract will be signed next week and delivery of the new radios ten days later starting in southern ILL. It will take three years to complete. They are hoping to bring in alot more towns as they progress. We may need add on boards for digital and 700mhz sooon here in ILL.

Just came from a NPSPAC region 24 (immediately adjoining Ill) meeting yesterday. The southern Illinois frequency advisor/ NPSPAC chairman was there and the Motorola engineer responsible for implementation was there also. I can verify their radio system will be wireless, at least from the vehicle to the fixed-end equipment. I believe their RFP includes a 10,000 foot tower in a corn field smack in the geographic center of the state where power could be modulated and radiated. In this manner the equipment would be energized.

       Dan, 

       I read your pages in Monitoring Times January 2001 and decided to drop you a line. I got this information from a local newspaper just last
       week. Illinois Governor Ryan announced a $25 million grant for a new radio system phased in over the next 3 years. The state will lease
       time on the new Starcom 21 network from Motorola. It will be made available to other federal, state, and local public safety agencies if they
       want to update their own outmoded systems. 

       Reading between the lines, I would say the state police are going to phase out their low band radio system statewide. Also I would assume
       the Illinois Department of Transportation 47 MHz system will follow also. The VHF 155 MHz state police frequency will have to stay in place
       for use with other police departments (ISPERN, IREACH etc.) As we already know the state police districts in the Chicago area are already
       using 800mhz. 

       I don't know anything about Starcom21-is there a scanner yet that will work with this system? Or is this digital? Maybe a competitive brand
       two-way radio down the road properly programmed will be around. A the rate everyone is going, no one will be left on lowband. I've always
       said give 29.7 - 54 MHz to us hams (we like skip conditions) and trade part of the 440 MHz and also 1.2 GHz for commercial use (they
       don't like skip).

       Thanks for the information, Daryl. Funding for the Starcom 21 network comes out of the Venture TECH fund
       from the Illinois Technology Office. This fund promises to provide research and development dollars for a
       number of law enforcement initiatives, including expansion of the Illinois State Police Wireless Information
       Network, wireless access to photographic images and fingerprints, more rapid access to wants and
       warrants databases, and an automated voice dispatch system. The new Starcom 21 network is one of
       those initiatives. 

       Motorola, headquartered in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, was selected to build Starcom 21after a
       competitive bid process. The Illinois State Police will purchase new radios and lease airtime on the network,
       as will other federal, state, and local public safety agencies. Rather than spending a lot of money to
       establish their own independent systems, county and local agencies will have the option of joining the
       state network. 

       The plan is to phase in the network over three years, starting with coverage in the southern part of the
       state and moving northward. The state hopes that by having one common radio system, problems of
       interoperability -- the ability of agencies to communicate directly with each other -- will be a thing of the
       past. 

       As Daryl noted, the Chicago District of the Illinois State Police is currently using a trunked radio system. It's
       actually two EDACS networks, one covering a northern patrol area and the other a southern patrol.
       Frequencies in LCN (Logical Channel Number) order are: 

       North: 866.8875, 866.4625, 867.3875, 866.9625, 867.4625, 867.8875, 868.3875, 868.4625, 868.8875 and
       868.9625 MHz.

       South: 866.4125, 866.4375, 866.9375, 867.4125, 867.9375, 867.9125, 868.4375, 868.4125, 868.9375 and
       868.9125 MHz.

       Unfortunately, I don't have any technical details about the Starcom 21 system. I expect that it will be a
       trunked digital system, but I don't know if it will be compatible with other Motorola products or with the
       APCO 25 standards, or something all together new. If readers have any further information about the
       system, please send it along! 

       NPSPAC 

       Starcom 21 will almost certainly have the capability of operating on the National Public Safety Planning
       Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) 800 MHz frequencies. The NPSPAC was formed more than ten years ago to
       provide guidance in the use and coordination of public safety radio frequencies, and their recommendations
       included the establishment of common inter-agency frequencies. 

       Five channels in the 800 MHz band are set aside for mutual aid across the country. One frequency,
       866.0125 MHz, is designated a calling channel. The other four, at 866.5125, 867.0125, 867.5125 and
       868.0125 MHz, are tactical channels. Each of these channels is 25 kHz wide and operates conventionally
       (that is, not trunked) with a tone coded squelch frequency of 156.7. 

       So, as you're scanning the 800 MHz band, be sure to include these five non-trunked frequencies in one of
       your scan banks. 

       That's all for this month. More information is available on my website at www.signalharbor.com, and I
       welcome your e-mail at dan@signalharbor.com. Until next month, happy monitoring! 

Motorola fights to upgrade State Police radio system 

October 31, 2000    BY HOWARD WOLINSKY BUSINESS REPORTER    CHICAGO SUN-TIMES 

Nearly 60 years ago, then-Chicago-based Motorola Inc. revolutionized law enforcement with two-way radios. 

Today, Schaumburg-based Motorola, better known by the public for its cell phones and pagers--which evolved from two-way radios--is fighting
for the contract to upgrade the Illinois State Police's more than 30-year-old radio system. The seven-year contract is expected to be worth about $60 million. 

The only other bidder is Com-Net Ericsson Critical Radio Systems Inc., formerly a division of Ericsson, the Swedish wireless giant. 

Judy Pardonnet, spokeswoman for the state Department of Central Management Services, which handles the bid, said the contract will be awarded in about a week.    Com-Net just aced Motorola in a hotly contested bid on a similar project in Florida. Motorola charged in a suit in Florida Circuit Court that the
state violated its own laws in awarding the contract. 

"This is a very important contract for us. Illinois is Motorola's home state. We make the infrastructure equipment for the radio backbone in Schaumburg," said Pat Sturmon, spokeswoman for Motorola.   William Clancy, regional vice president of Com-Net in West Chicago, said the new systems will be digital. He said this will provide more security to police officers.   In addition, he said, the system will prevent problems caused by officers speaking over each other.

The Illinois State Police installed such a digital system in Cook County eight years ago to help its highway patrols in the Chicago area.  Ericsson installed that system, Clancy said.   He said the new statewide system will be different because it is being bid as a service to the state that will be maintained by the companies.  In the past, the infrastructure equipment was purchased outright by the states.

The winning bidder would aim to recoup the cost by bringing other law enforcement agencies onto its backbone service. 

With the stakes high and local pride an issue for Motorola, the companies have launched intense lobbying efforts involving big-name politics. 

Motorola has on its team Tyrone Fahner, former Illinois attorney general and former director of the Illinois State Police, and Richard Williamson, chairman of the Illinois GOP.  

On its side, Com-Net has enlisted Robert Kjellander, Republican national committeeman; former Republican state Rep. Sam Vinson and former
Democratic state Rep. Alfred Ronan.   "Motorola has hired a lobbyist like any major company," Sturmon said.  "We want to make sure our company's interests are well represented."

Update 5/03
I found this Starcom 21 info from this PDF file site:   www.mclean.gov/boardnotes/pdf/February2003/min_AdHoc12.pdf

The ISP Starcom 21 system will be an APCO-25, 700 and 800 mHz digital system, with over 186 tower sites throughout Illinois.  Looks like the BC785D scanner may become of use to us, and probably the new Radio Shack digital scanner to be released soon (I don't know anything about it, though.)  Motorola will also utilize some of the existing ClearTalk towers in Mclean county (possibly other towers, too?) for the system, having at least 95% mobile coverage statewide.
 It will start out using existing ISP towers, then be put on the Starcom 21 towers later.  The system should be operational by September, 2004.  Public safety
agencies in Illinois, including ALL State agencies using two-way radios, as well as federal agencies, will utilize the system.  This will certainly allow us
to delete hundreds of state frequencies from our scanners, except the few they probably would keep, like ISPERN and other mutual-aid channels.  I assume
some high-band freqs may also be kept as backup channels, but I'm not sure.  If we can monitor the system, which looks good, it'll be much easier to
listen to all Illinois state agencies, and all local and federal agencies that rent the system.  Of course, all those who don't buy digital scanners will be left
in the dark...
