• 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:

Open carriers use scanners hanging around prison

Aside from the abnormal actions of hanging around a prison or going near schools, if you listen you'll notice particular audio and see it. The law enforcement was aware of it too.

This does not help the folks against a particular subject. So in aspects many will see this and you can guess what will happen.

We all know what is legal. But do normal people do this? You want attention you will get it and with current times I believe law enforcement was in the right in cases like this. It furthers my opinion on use of secure measures communications wise where problems exist or may exist.

Open carriers linger around a prison and using scanners to monitor law enforcement in open monitoring movement and prison operations.
