New Brunswick Police, Fire, and EMS

This feed covers Police and Fire channels for New Brunswick, NJ.
Formerly covered: Police and Fire Dispatch for the Rutgers University New Brunswick, NJ campus. Unfortunately those agencies have gone to P25 Digital encrypted channels, however the Rutgers EMS paging channel is still in the clear and monitored.
This feed is provided off a Uniden BCT-8 scanner connected to an Ubuntu linux server.
The various codes and signals for New Brunswick Police can be found here (PDF).

Rutgers University PD terminology can be found here (text). The UHF channels are still programmed into the scanner, in case they do happen to come back some day (unlikely). If it turns out that the new P25 channels revert to broadcasting unencrypted, I'll consider upgrading my gear to pick them up, but for now that also seems unlikely.

Rutgers Feeds are notorious for coming in at low volume. In particular, mobile units on PD Channel 1 tend to come in way lower than dispatch, and Rutgers in general is much lower than all other agencies being scanned. Trying to work out a gain adjustment to fix this, but their PLs tend to be at the same volume as everyone else, complicating matters. Listening with headphones is recommended, and seems to help.
