    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:

Mostly I hear a dispatcher sending units to locations.

Around 11:00 PM, there is a role call, where all units radio in.

The EPA has a number that you can call to report anything that you see that could be hazardous to the environment. For instance, someone pressure washing with chemicals and not reclaiming their water (ie they are just letting it go into the storm drain), someone dumping chemicals into a storm drain, etc. Every morning (and a few times a day) they check it (its an automated system, you just leave a message) and they send someone out to do a test on the drains around the area that you reported. If anything is found then they go from there as far as fining someone.

Just curious - what makes you believe this is EPA activity?

Those frequencies are assigned to the Federal Protective Service, part of DHS ICE...
