• 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:

There are many things weird about Lapeer County, Michigan's government/law enforcement. :roll:

Sure glad I don't live there.

Crediting social media and online streaming for the decision to go with full encryption, Lapeer County commissioners voted 7-0 in favor of the implementation:
https://www.change.org/p/lapeer-county-commissioners-support-privacy-and-safety-approve-encryption

Hopefully they will be as slow as Genesee County in implementing it, however I don't blame them for choosing encryption. I'd go with it too.
With What Money? Brad Starrord ,mpscs has said the encryption must be approved by Lansing. And recently the tower upgrades failed. I don't know where Lapeer is going to come up with 5.5 million dollars. The Lapeer county fire chiefs assn , voted against encryption.

Somewhere I remember reading the cost for adding encryption would be around $60k for 1,000 radios.
That seems like a low dollar figure so I'd guess they're paying some radio shop to drop an ADP key in them.
But this is just a guess.

I understand their desire for privacy, but I'm disappointed because it sounds like all the mains will be encrypted, not just proprietary TGs, etc.

Oh well.

It may come standard but is it enabled? Can the department enable it, or does Moto want additional fund to activate it?
Single key ADP is standard and activated, the DES/AES option is 600.00. If you want the multi key option add 247.00 to the total.

Agency can set up there own ADP key.

It's been argued many times that ADP is too weak etc etc... but it's cheap/free and 100% effective at blocking streams and scanners. Sign of the times unfortunately.....

Most of the reason for the encryption is because of a facebook page called Lpo nightposter , Lapeer police operations Nightposter. The Original Lapeer police operations group is still on facdbook ,however the original admin is now deceased .

Kevin, over the past 3 months your lapeer based newspaper has printed all the negative comments and residents complaints . Regarding your page... if the present lapeer county sheriff and communications directors didn't want you to post calls to your page then there is a issue..


Oh and lets talk about the Posting of 6/24/2018 10:30 a.m.
That is a cluster...

I invite the forum members to read it... get your facts straight before posting .


Hey forum admin. You might want to turn off the comments on the thread .
