• 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:

can anyone confirm Point Boro going digital.

Sadly I heard this rumor too from a good friend who is a Brick Twp. cop. Now he is nowhere into radios as I am, beyond his working is all he cares about. However, since I read your post, it got me thinking. Why not make Northern Ocean County an encryption fortress! :)

At 10:30 this morning dispatch announced, on the fire dispatch channel, "all police communications will be on this channel until further notice". I would imagine either something is wrong with the police channel or they're modifying it for digital.

Once again going digital does not mean encrypted. While it is possible that they will encrypt and using ADP encryption is cheap they can be digital and not encrypted. Perhaps if people would stop putting active calls out this might not happen. Listen and keep silent.
