• 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:

So I come back to my parents house after running around all morning. Guess what I find at the end of their street? A FULL SWAT team going up to a house at the end of the block. Talk about a pucker factor of about 10, also not what you want to see at the end of your block. They had a SMALL sign saying it was training. I tried to get pics, but they are not letting people watch..

I didn't even think greenwood village had a swat team. Is it a combined team from different cities in Arapahoe county? Or maybe, was it Arapahoe County swat?

I would really be surprised if Greenwood had its own swat team. They have trouble enough responding and investigating the few little incidents that they have each year.

I promise they do. All staffed by greenwood village officers. They even have an RV on roids with GWVPD SWAT on the side. It came into being in 96, they said it was needed due to having the DTC in the city and other things.

Well I believe ya. I just never would have thought that Greenwood would have their own swat. And yes they are right! That have had so many incidents in DTC requiring the command/swat vehicle and all.

Who do they train with? Do you have any idea? Or do they just go it on their own.

All I saw yesterday was Greenwood guys...according to the neighborhood prez they asked to use the house due to the fact it's going to be torn down soon. So they could tear it up. I would think at some point maybe they would cross train w/ the Arapaho sheriffs, maybe even Metro. I wish they would of let me take pictures, it was cool, and those stun grandees are LOUD!

As a public street you could have probably pushed the picture thing, but probably better to not go there.
