The Pasadena Police Department is increasing its public information efforts by providing more crime statistic information on its website and the radio frequency codes for the public to listen to radio calls for service.
On Thursday, June 14 the Pasadena Police Department will release the programing information needed to listen to the Pasadena Police radio. Pasadena Chief of Police Phillip L. Sanchez said, "I am pleased to provide access to the department's information sharing networks, which includes the police radio talk group code. Listeners will hear the initial broadcast to include call type, location and time of occurrence. The technology solution strikes a balance between open communication, victims’ rights and enhancing emergency response."
The technical information for the Pasadena Police Department's talk group is 39760 or 2485, depending on the make and model of the digital scanner. The public will now hear the initial call for service broadcast; however, follow up transmissions will be encrypted.
The Pasadena Police Department is also reminding citizens that crime data is available on the department's website. The community can check for specific crimes within a day of the reported incident on www.CrimeMapping.com. Information can also be obtained by viewing posted crime statistics on line at www.cityofpasadena.net/Police/Crime_Statistics/ or by subscribing to NIXLE. Closed calls will be updated twice daily and will contain information from the most recent five-day period. For safety and privacy reasons, incidents involving minors, sexual assaults and other sensitive call types will be excluded from the daily postings. The log can be seen at www.cityofpasadena.net/police/callsforservice.aspx.
