• 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:

I believe Canton PD has gone digital encryped but I was
always able to scan the Summit on the Park, golf courses
and some public works. They have gone disappeared like
Amelia Earhart. Anyone know if all Canton Township MI
traffic is now trunked and/or encrypted, in particular
recreation, public works, golf course.

Canton is on the MPSCS but unfortunately chooses to encrypt all of their talkgroups and thus cannot be monitored.

Livonia and I believe Hamtramck also encrypt all their talk groups.

Fortunately all other general dispatch TGs in the area are in the clear so there is a lot to listen to on the system.

Can anyone confirm the above? Also, are there any near-future plans of additional use of encryption in the state of Michigan?

Canton has been encrypted for at least a couple years now, have they not? I know there were when I logged them from Windsor a couple summers ago.
