• 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:

A hot, sunny Florida day isn't an occasion where public safety issues like an aging radio communications system or cramped quarters at the Brevard County Emergency Operations Center create a sense of urgency.

But Hurricane Irene, which lapped at the Space Coast from 200 miles off shore this past week, was close enough to expose these two critical weaknesses identified in the county's emergency response system.

Isn't their $10M upgrade and expansion also called a critical weakness. We could overfund them and they would cry for more.
