• 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:

While I was there I found that Paris, Flamingo, Caesars. Rio, and Ballys all used one conventional channel of their existing system in DMR mode for security and all full E. I didn't try PH, but I am willing to bet they did the same thing.

Hmm... I used to work security for Harrahs/Caesars Entertainment and have worked at each one of those properties. It’s been several years, but I can’t imagine them using just one frequency to coordinate daily security operations. We *always* had *a ton* of radio traffic. Sometimes officers were fighting for airtime and each casino had its own talkgroup.

Post 10/1, the company created its own “Saturation Teams” (PC name for their Critical Incident Response team). I wonder if that’s a shared and Encrypted channel for the Saturation Team Officers. Either that or a channel for the Special Investigation Unit to coordinate operations. The SIU folks work at different casinos daily and could really benefit from a shared single frequency.
