• 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:

13602 U.S Marshall service.
Just curious how you were able to ID this one, Steve. I happen to have some information on this talk group that indicates it does not "belong" to the US Marshals, but they would definitely be ones to use it…

Chris is correct, this is not a USMS talkgroup.

I heard someone identify themselves. It was like "Marshal #" or something along those lines.
Thanks Steve. Glad you were able to catch some traffic in the clear.

As I said, I have some reliable information on this talk group that it is likely an interoperability talk group and probably not assigned to the US Marshals Service. But please keep listening for stuff like this, as that's how we find things out!

So, it's used by multiple agencies then Chris? I will keep listening. I have actually heard a lot of traffic in the clear, at times. It'll be interesting to see if I can find anything "NEW", during the NFC championship game next Sunday.

Yes, that is what interoperability is all about - multiple agencies being able to talk to each other on a common talk group. The US Marshals operate a lot with other agencies - federal, state and local law enforcement.

Well, that makes the "catch" even better really, since it's not just one agency. Along those lines, what can we expect next week with the NFC championship game?
I have no idea who might be on the IWN for that event, although I would bet money that the FBI and other agencies are involved in the event planning and will be at the operations center for the game.

As for the interoperability talk group you heard, all during November I was hearing what sounded like a Washington State Patrol dispatch console keying up that same talk group every time the WSP dispatcher talked. I was only hearing the dispatch side, and it was not on every transmission, but it was coming over several IWN sites down around Portland...
