    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:

Effective January 1st, 2010...

Wernersville Borough Police Department and Robesonia Borough Police Department are merging to become the Western Berks Regional Police Department.

Unknown which identifier they will keep, but my guess would be Wernersville's.

(Larger department. IIRC, Robesonia has 1 officer total.)

Doesn't suprise me, department budgets are getting cut. Alot of departments even just have a day/evening shift and covered by state police on the off hours.

Berks-Lehigh Regional Was merged a few years ago, and seems to be doing good.

Good luck to them in the future..

I'm sure they will utilize on of the departments numbering systems for the county radio
