• 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:

Does anyone know of a free scanner "call tracker" or even a CAD (computer aided dispatch) would work. I just think it would be cool to input the calls and track them as they go.
Thanks.

One of the members here was writing his own cad program, he posted a sample of one of the screens, it looked pretty nice, I searched the site, can't find it, I wish I could remember who it was. Maybe now that I mentioned it, someone will remember who it was, I'd like to fool with it myself.

i remember that too, it looked like a pretty good program. I tried to search for it, but no results.

I was bored one day and whipped up a quick database in Filemaker Pro. I've attached it to this post.

It requires Filemaker Pro 7 or higher (Might only work in 9 as it was written in 9). It was designed around the Milwaukee Police Department. Feel free to change it however you want. I left some sample records in there to show how it works.

Tracking calls

This is easy to do with google earth if you are a visual person like me...just "tack" the location of the call and color code your tacks...green EMS red Fire and yellow for PD..or whateer colors you want...i use DeLorme earthmate GPS for this purpose..ill try to post a screen shot with this post...I like this format because its more simple...no backend stuff...it works for me
