• 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:

HBT Incident

This was better...96th Ewing. Robbery offender who was an ex-employee held 3 in the store. Started around 1930..ended at 2125 Hrs. I have more details, but i'm sure it'll be a news event soon if not by morning. Zone 8 was the primary zone, and the HBT was moved to City-Wide 6. Alot of new Beat numbers were on there if some of you were paying close attention...

Wrong channel !!

I think that what I was hearing, I must have messed up the zones with the citywides. I heard it on 460.2500 cw #6 now that I check my notes. But, yea it was quite interseting. Lets see what happens tonight, being a little bit colder today. Thats what happens when you don't put in text tags.

Todays Events...so far

This post could go on and on..LOL ! PH-1 (New Radio Desigation for Police Helicopeters-PH), along with Canine Units , were utilized by the CPD Fugitive Apprehension Unit in an attempt to look for an offender wanted on a warrant in the Clearing neighborhood..63rd Oak Park area. This incident extended to Burbank where the offenders vehicle was spotted. Pursuit was initiated, Harlem to Interstate 55 where offender did some fancy driving, went back west on the highway where he exited to a forest preserve in Lyons,IL. There a foot pursuit was initiated in the woods (I'm sure interrupted some lovers in action...LOL!!!) where he was taken into custody. Ahhh, never a dull moment on Zone 6.
Another high school student was shot in the LeClaire Courts low-rises at 46th Lawler soon thereafter. He appeared to be in good condition as he was driven by a friend to MacNeal Hospital. All before 2PM on a Sunday...what's that saying.."no justice, no peace"...hmmmmm?

Regarding the helicopters, I heard one on CW1 yesterday, but identified himself as Copter-1. He was notifying the dispatcher of a lojack hit [where she then sent a car to the area to locate the car in question {of course with a description of the vehicle which was probably looked up in their database}].

Was also some action on the north side yesterday: (2090?) was following a car [forgot the reason why] in which the driver hopped out (in beat 23xx [wilson + sheridan]) and ran while two females were sitting in the backseat. Chase ensued...apprehended on sunnyside + broadway [like 2 blocks away...lol].

Yes, you are correct as well. I've heard the PH designation twice now, so i'm sure it's a learning curve. This has to do with the CPD CAD System so they can put them on the Events, check history etc. They'll all come on board soon i'm sure.

Add some more !!!

They found 3 DOA's in a house in Pilsen, another one shot in a factory on 4500 W. Division and yesterday found a male with a gunshot wound to the head around 63rd Kedzie...all homicide victims. We need to start a pool as to what the final tally will be. I see it's going to be in the 70's next couple of days too...uh ohhh !!!

Shots Fired

Shots fired, two subjects running on foot. With in minutes they were in custody, because everybody was listening to their radio. Mutiple radio bands used on this one, for the most part vey well cordinate. I guess that is what happen when its past 12 am. All around nice catch and evidence located right away. Local towns around here by me.
