• 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:

About 1 AM Sunday, I heard alot of sirens, and so I turned my scanner on, and heard GOT THEM AT GUN POINT IN FRONT OF CVS thats a block away from me, so I get in my car to go check it out.

Heard PD say a Black Lincoin took off towards the highway, and all the police were speeding everywere.

About 15 mins. later dispatch says San Pat. has a Lincoin stoped on CO RD 36 near Sinton, and they are trying to identify it.

No more info at this time. (1:20 am) check the Portland News Paper.

If they have him at gunpoint, and it is a block or so away, I would be ducking for cover getting behind the densest piece of furniture in the house.

Driving to a dangerous situation like that is foolish, dangerous, and one of the primary reasons the PDs wants to encrypt their comms.
