• 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:

Corrections Corporation of America, a long time holding facility for the Federal Bureau of Prisons and ICE has just been granted new STA licenses, one in Eloy TX for 200 DMR radios, the other in Indianapolis IN for 140 DMR radios. Given the situation with the Caravans, I'm wondering if these will be the holding facilities ICE will be using. The STA in both cases is for 6 months.

CCA has a facility about 50 miles from me in Lumpkin, GA. They house illegal aliens. About twice a week, a charter flight (usually an MD-11) arrives in Columbus, GA, to move them out. The planes go to Miami, Alexandria, Brownsville and a couple of other places, depending on which country the detainees are going to.

CCA houses a lot of prisoners for both the federal bureau of prisons and ICE detainees. The other major company is Geo Group (formerly Wackenhut).

Would you have a fcc call sign for them? I didm not see one when I searched them. I did find one for their old name Wackenhut 0001822105 and that frn also reflects G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc

They could be using frequencies allocated to BoP, which are assigned by IRAC and have been unavailable to the public since the Reagan Administration.

No, they are using Part 90 freqs, not BOP, many of them are DMR. These are civilian agencies providing bed space, typically, they are not allowed to house federal prisoners if they are US citizens, unless they are state borders in a federal facility. Federal prisoners in a CCA, GEO or other private facility needs to have an order of deportation upon completion of their sentence.

I'm not sure what DHS/ICE policies are for the detainees they house there.
