• 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:

It says in the article the 3 new towers are planned to be in Bass River, Cinnaminson and Pemberton township. I guess its about time to write a very nicely worded letter to Burlington County Freeholder Latham Tiver and beg them not to use encryption for everyday police traffic. I didn't work for the other counties so I have little hope for us listeners in Burlington county. Police transparency is going away fast around NJ.

Why can't they just do what Bucks County did?? Anyone know when they are switching over? Thought it was 2 years away?
It's still a little ways out. The main reason these counties aren't following Bucks County's lead is that they tend to cater more to the police chiefs and like to tell the community it's being done for everyone's safety (which we know is BS). With the system not yet in place there is still time to influence things. Best bet is to write to your local police chief and your county freeholders and urge them to not encrypt primary dispatch channels. Be sure to say that you feel it is in the best interest of the public that these channels remain open to provide transparency and keep citizens in the loop.
