• 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:

There was some interesting stuff to monitor last night on Starcom. Turned out to be a murder-suicide in Piatt County. Lots of radio traffic as units arrived, setup perimeter, etc... Heard a lot of different unit ID's including Paul 6 (in an aircraft ) and one I'm curious about. They referenced "X-Ray Sam 1" frequently, but I'm unsure who this was. Any ideas?

X- is the ISP District identifier for Dist 10, instead of confusing the units with 10 codes. The Sam designator, is normally a Safety officer according to the Wiki page.

Also note that Paul units are ISP plane units.

X-Ray-Sam-1 is Sgt. Bill Emery the Dist. 10 Safety Education Officer, he also often acts as a PIO for Dist. 10. You will often see him on the news or in the paper when the media is talking to State Police in this area.
