• 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:

Anyone know what was going on today? About 1:30~2:30PM today I heard a lot of Sheriff units in the area of RT28 using TAC3. It sounded like an escort at first but then sounded like someone being followed. On the way home at about 4:30PM, I heard them what sounded like wrapping everything up and moving communications back to the East channel. One deputy (?) tell the other that he needs to make sure to get a legitimate traffic stop on a subject.

Not 100% sure but I think it was either an motor squad escort of some sort or motor squad training. At anyrate there was traffic about Fairfax County Motor Units being on this talkgroup with Loudoun County motors and no need for a dispatcher to monitor. That traffic was made on the east end talkgroup.
