• 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:

I have received a user submission to move PCC talkgroups into the "Oregon State Agencies Talkgroups" subcategory. The justification is "Portland Community College District falls under the state umbrella agency Higher Education Coordinating Commission." I don't have a dog in this fight, so I'm asking for the opinions of the users in the area for guidance on this one.

For what its worth

I see what you mean... they're locally governed by also run by the state?


From the HECC website:

The HECC’s Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) works closely with colleges and workforce programs to support accessible, high quality learning opportunities to serve the state’s present and future needs. CCWD provides coordination, leadership and resources to Oregon’s 17 locally-governed community colleges, 18 adult basic skills providers, community-based organizations and other partnerships. The governance of Oregon’s public community colleges is the responsibility of their respective local-elected governing boards.

I don't see a reason to change it. Putting it under the State Agencies umbrella does not seem like a logical choice to me, even if it is technically correct.
