Radio Communications and Scanner information for the Hampton Police Division, VA.
The Hampton Police Division is located at 40 Lincoln Street in Downtown Hampton, VA. The police broadcast tower is located off of Pine Chapel Road (next to the Hampton Coliseum).
Hampton used a trunked radio system designed by GE Ericsson. The trunked system deployes what is commonly known as anti-scanner tones to prevent a scanner from automatically scanning at the end of a transmittion. Uniden released a new scanner in July of 1999 that will actually track and decode the control channel for an Ericsson TRS.
Here is a listing of the city's trunked radio frequencies, keep in mind that all city operations use these channels, not just police and fire. These must be programmed into your scanner in order, otherwise you will not be able to track this system.
854.7125 854.9625 855.4625 855.7125 855.9625 856.7625 857.7625 858.7625 859.7625 860.7625
This is a listing of the non-trunked mutual aid channels that all police and fire radios are equipped with, these channels are not used unless the trunk system fails, or officers need to communicate with other departments in an emergency situation.
866.0125 867.7625 866.5250 866.0500 866.7125 866.9250 867.1500
Hampton Fire Department still simulcasts on 46.060 (for the fire department pagers) this is the primary dispatch channel. The tower for that channel is located on the roof of the Briarfield Fire Station.
The Hampton Police Division has long eluded scanner listeners with it's Trunked Anti-Scanner system. Now that Uniden released a scanner than can track and decode GE Ericsson, here is a listing below for city departments talk groups.
Please note that if you have a scanner capable of scanning ericsson, you must program the frequencies in order, listed above, and as a matter of fact, all the HPD frequencies are included in a book that comes with the Bearcat 245 XLT with the correct order.
