• 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:

For the few of us down here in central Alabama, has anyone else heard the phone patch on the State Net (155.01) being used by Fort Deposit PD after 2300 hours? They were dispatched by Lowndes E911 but the call seems to go to what's probably the only officer working and it's always answered as "Fort Deposit Police" The caller is then heard in semi-duplex with the officer. Some of the calls have been pretty funny but one I just heard was for a compaint of drug activity and the officer got the RP's name, address, and phone number. Seems like kind of a bad idea on a conventional, unecrypted channel. Even the lunkheads we have down here can probably figure out how to program a scanner for the State net frequency.
