    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:

This morning I heard some traffic on an LMPD freq that I've never heard anything on before.It was on 453.575 and what I heard was a recording that kept repeating "Motor Car Theft...Motor Car Theft".It was wierd and I have never heard anything like it before so can anyone tell me if it was a LOJACK system or something else?

That channel was bridged with the former JCPD Command channel and has been used for different details. I have never heard anything like that come across the channel before but will try and check into it. I am almost certain that we do not have any lojack systems in place. But then I have been on vacation and a lot can change overnight let alone a week or so.

Not that I have been made aware of. But who knows. I will check this evening and see what I can come up with.

Iheard it again today but only a couple of time and the signal was weaker then last time but it was the same message, "motor vehicle theft in progress...motor vehicle theft in progress".I still have no idea what it is.

Metro PD is using BAIT VEHICLES for auto theft operations......what you're hearing is most likely related to the operations.
