• 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:

We have been discussing this on MNN Zello group. Also might want to move to breaking news thread.

DPD Twitter Feed is reporting UTL all around, no person found and no explosives found. I'd be curious to hear what details were provided by the initial RP (I missed that part).

FYI, the incident was first paged out around 11:47 hours this morning in DPD District 1. Denver Fire has ops on FG-2 (albeit VERY quiet). DPD District 1 Primary Dispatch has also been VERY quiet, mostly people asking for each others nextel's.
Actually the call came in before 11:30 am and District-1 officers 123D (CIT officer), 122B, and 123B were dispatched for Colfax and Zuni at 11:31 am. Initial dispatch was that someone was calling about a 35 year old, white male (they said his name and DOB but not including it here) that the caller said was suicidal and entered a manhole cover and was inside the bridge.

At 11:35 am, the dispatcher said there were lots of concerns about him, including the fact that he could have a propane tank, needles for drugs, taser, knives, he's volatile, bipolar, not on meds, etc. That is when officer 123D responded from his car radio, "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Lots more info and another health concern for officers was aired after that and is available in the RR archives.

Obviously the third party info (from the supposedly suicidal person calling the second person, then the second person calling police) was less than correct. Police knew that it might not be accurate going in, but had to take is somewhat seriously anyway.
