• 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:

Troop E (Among other law enforcement agencies) is currently searching for a suicidal mid 50's (age) 280 pound body builder armed with a .357 (and a box of ammunition to go with it. He allegedly tried to kid-nap a police sergeant's daughter in Massachusetts and is possibly en-route to the Foxwood's area.

More updates will come as I have them, If anyone else is monitoring Troop E or anything related to this incident in the Ledyard area, Please post here to update.

Ledyard Police have transferred a call to Mashantucket for a male that has jumped (or fallen) off of the parking garage, and is dead, Although police have confirmed that this man is NOT their suspect.

It was interesting to listen to, It's just too bad that the guy didn't blow his brains out and save us tax-payers the money it's going to cost to keep him in prison.

Some other states have a breaking news thread, maybe we need one!
If someone wanted to follow Bridgeport PDs antics for 30 min it would fill 20 pages with people with guns, shootings, stabbings ect, If I want to know about it ill listen to my scanner.
For people that listen to Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven PDs etc, A guy with a gun in his car threaten to kill himself isn’t a big deal, and on a busy night in those cities would not be followed up on unless someone happened upon him, and then maybe 2 cars would take time out to sit with him until EMS took the psych to the hospital.
But I could se it being breaking news in the eastern part of the state or Litchfield county
I know don’t read it LOL
