• 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:

They were once the 2900 series. What are they in this present time? I want to say I remember them becoming the 7900 series, but not sure. Anyone out here with that info?

Based on this https://portal.chicagopolice.org/portal/page/portal/ClearPath/Communities/Districts/community_area.pdf O'Hare is district 76, so according to this https://portal.chicagopolice.org/portal/page/portal/ClearPath/Get Involved/How CAPS works/KnowYourDistrict it would appear that they would be the 7600 series now.

O'Hare is not "District 76'. Chicago is divided into 77 "community areas" mostly for statistical purposes and often mistakenly called "neighborhoods" by many. O'Hare is number 76. That has nothing to do with CPD beat numbers.

All O'Hare and Midway detail units are in the 7200's.

Hi there all in Chicago area...Chicago13 is correct on PD detail units. I flew back from Hawaii last week, was standing next to an officer, and heard dispatch call "7221", which he was. Then, I powered up my BCD346XT, with Chicago O'Hare programmed in this week, and heard multiple times, 7200 units dispatched on the trunked side for baggage check, canine officer request, etc..
