Twelve encrypted talkgroups on BRICS are shared by all public safety agencies – law enforcement, fire and EMS. These talkgroups, labeled “09 TAC” for Tactical, are located in Zone B in all public safety templates. They are available for assignment by any dispatch center.

The TAC talkgroups are most easily accessible for interoperability between any public safety agency in Butler County. If a fire / EMS incident requires encryption, or if law enforcement needs to work with fire and EMS, the TAC talkgroups are an appropriate choice.

Coverage on these talkgroups includes adjacent Ohio counties, due to our interconnection with the state’s MARCS radio system.
