    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:

Yesterday, I was traveling on RT 81 about 5 - 10 miles north of RT 90 when I was passed by a NYS Trooper. It was a typical blue SUV style vehicle with the NYSP seal on the door and the K-9
decal on the lefthand tailgate. The plate was 113538 has anyone else seen this?

Sure it wasn't NYS corrections? They have k-9 units and there seal is similar to NYSP and the use the regular state plates with year and state number

I have also seen one of these vehicles in the Albany area. The paint style was the same as NYSP, but the seal on the door was not quite the same; it was considerably smaller than the typical NYSP seal. Unfortunately, I could not get a good look at the seal itself, but it did have the 'typical' New York State plate and not a Troop plate.

Might be NYS Corrections. Similar blue vehicle and markings, except for the Corrections Seal and a CODE3 lightbar instead of a FS Vista or Whelen Freedom. Have seen at a local emergency vehicle outfitter for repairs.

I had one of those vans pass me on I-81 Southbound between Watertown and Syracuse returning from vacation to Canada in July. It had the 'NYS Correctional Services' seal on the door. Yes, very similar to NYSP seal and smaller. It also had the 6 digit license plate on the back when it went by me.
