• 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:

Final Lakewood Questions

So we've established the following:

Typical Lakewood Callsigns are (shift) + (unit) + (car number) (e.g. 2 south 41 or 3 west 46)

George Units = Community Resource Officers
Lincoln Units = Volunteers
Young Units = CSI's

Next on tap:

Ocean units which sound like school resource officers

Zebra Units which sound like undercover units

Ida Units which sound like Investigators

Am I on target here?

Also, the George units appear to drive the same vehicles as Lincoln units and seem to be CSI's also, is this correct? Would it be appropriate to think that George units are "Reserve" units?
