Like what the others have said for a city that claims to be broke, they always seem to have the funding for radios and upgrades. I honestly think the community should voice their opinion against encryption and not be that guy but Yonkers police doesn't really have the best reputation out there. This will only make the community feel a gap between the police and the general public. Also they often call for mutual aid when it comes to water rescues and heavy jobs. I wonder how their rapport with other agencies will go once they go dark.

As for Yonkers FD, I monitored today and heard them loud and clear on UHF. They aren't really active so I guess the times I monitored before were slow times.

YPD was never VSELP. When they went digital in 99-2000 it was IMBE. All new APX radios going encrypted in the near future.

Having worked there on their radios the first digital system they had was VSELP, and that was in 1994 or 1995 they came in Astro Sabers with the large batteries. The cops hated them as the radio was nearly as long as their nightsticks.

Sorry to hear they are going "E", but at least I don't live anywhere near there anymore or travel there except to the train station. It never fails to amaze me that PD's think going "E" is going to fix all their problems. It won't fix poor radio or police tactics and gives a false sense of security.

One comment I remember from the 90's from a street sergeant was that the locals as they were called knew ahead of time when they were going to show up in the hi-rise projects. Well you don't need a scanner to do that and the call "5/0" will still ring out throughout the buildings, and "E" won't fix that. With today's social media, the locals will know way before they show up.

So much for interop with other agencies.
