• 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:

Did anyone else hear the NAPD hostage situation exercise last night around 7:00pm? I was hearing them on the 002100 talkgroup and I have to admit, it was a bit unnerving at first because I didn't know if it was real. After a while, however, I managed to figure out that it had to be a drill because I can't imagine a police officer being that calm as he reports that he shot the suspect three times in the head. They also seemed to be using first names or nicknames which I wouldn't think they would do in a real situation. I was wondering where they carried out the exercise since it sounded like they were at a school. Just interesting stuff to listen to while waiting for my daughters to get done with Girl Scouts.

I listened to it also, I like to listen to those trainning events, like the one INSPD did a while back. It's nice to know they are preparing.
