• 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:

AURORA – City employees dealt with a gunman inside city hall on Wednesday as part of an emergency drill.

This was the city's first exercise involving not only emergency responders were involved, but also city hall personnel.

Organizers said employees stayed in the building during the drill to learn how to seek cover in such a situation and help emergency services with rescue and evacuation.

"We wanted to have a realistic environment, so we had the police and fire department responding," said Deanne Criswell, Aurora's emergency manager. "We have casualties within the building that have gunshots and so forth, and so, making it as realistic for them as possible."

More than 100 emergency responders participated in the drill.

The city hall was closed during the drill and will re-open for normal hours Thursday.
