Mall of America Security and Police Frequencies

April 8, 2020

In case you have not yet heard, there were major fights yesterday at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. Police said as many as 200 people were involved in the melee. Nine were arrested for disorderly conduct.

I’ve received several e-mail requests for current Mall of America security and police scanner frequencies. I have to admit, I haven’t kept up on Mall communications and are unaware of what type of equipment they are now using. I know they utilize a trunked system, but am not sure whether it is analog or digital. Do you know? If it’s a digital system, is it encrypted or “in the clear” and thus able to be monitored with a consumer grade digital scanning receiver? Information on talkgroups and active frequencies would also be appreciated.
