• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

So today on my ride home from work, I got stopped for a "click-it or ticket" campaign with the officer hiding in the bushes at the u-turn for GSP exit 91. I got nailed without a seat belt, but luckily I got a warning. However, when talking to the officer, I noticed he had a newer radio. It is the same Motorola digital radios that Toms River Police have. I remember talking to a detective from Brick a few months ago, and he said they had the new radios. Now it looks like they are rolling them out to the regular traffic and patrol units. Interesting, I guess the P25 system is on its' way.

In that case I hope they ALL go digital. Now look up "bennie" in the on line Urban Dictionary. (;->)

If you think about it, it only makes sense from an interoperability standpoint. They are bordered by Toms River and Lakewood, both of which use P25 digital.

Even if they are not willing or able from a budgetary standpoint to buy the digital infrastructure it makes sense as portables reach their EOL to replace them with digital capable radios.
