    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:

Listening to DPD (SWAT and Channel 12) and Plano PD (Dispatch Channel 2) involved in a pursuit starting in Dallas involving the FBI. One group is currently at Costco off of the Tollway in Plano. Plano SWAT, Uniformed officers, DPD Swat, DPD uniformed officers and DPD deploy are there.

Didn't catch the offense....

Another group was pursuing a second vehicle involved in the same offense....


More to come as I learn more....

UPDATE:

BREAKING NEWS
• Heavily-armed men wearing body armor held up a Richardson bank about 9:15 a.m. and police are now in pursuit of a gold Mercedes. Police say these may have been the "Scarecrow Bandits" who have held up more than a dozen banks in North Texas. Police were in pursuit of several suspects who scattered in different directions.

I believe this occurred in central...atleast thats what I gathered from listening earlier the elements in central were trying to find out which bank possibly a Wachovia.

DPD deployment also has some good chatter.

FBI en route to secure scene at Costco. The other FBI units already on scene had to go to the other locations related to this incident.

With their buddies in custody I imagine it is only a matter of time before they are taken down....

That made for one heck of a listening experience.....

It was almost too much to monitor all those channels.

It was...

The delay in sharing of info was interesting to note.

Overall, it sounded like they did an excellent job.

All the news about the "Scarecrow Bandits" is great,But I have several friends who work for GPD and the Kroger Food store at Shilo/Campbell is in their Patrol Beat in Garland.The FBI/DPD Task Force didn't Inform GPD that they had a Stakeout going on at Kroger's.The 2 Garland officers just happened to be in the Shopping Center where the Kroger store is when the arrest of 2 Female suspects took place.I thought is was common pratice to inform a city that you could have a "SHOOTOUT" in your city.The Garland officers were "ALLOWED" to transport the suspects for the FBI.The FBI agents gave both Garland Officers a pair of Oakley Shooting glasses for "HELPING" out....LOL
