• 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:

Not sure if this has been posted here before or not, apologies if it has. Came across this very comprehensive report (from 2011) of all the major trunked systems in Southeast Michigan, and their interoperability with each other. Some pretty decent technical reading of the different systems, their strength's and weaknesses and suggestions on how they could be improved.

This entity About the Southeast Michigan Urban Area Security (SEMI UASI) Initiative ordered it.
Who are these guys? Their website is strangely vague and there's no detailed member info.
My guess is that it would be a committee made up of emergency management types from district 2, probably including reps from law enforcement, fire, EMS, DHS, etc. Each MSP district has their own planning committee; this one would just have to be bigger because of the nature of the urban area that comprises D2; and it would logically have sub-committees to address specific areas of concern. They gave it a fancy name, is all.

Looks like they should probably appoint a new webmaster, too. Meeting schedules for 2012 & 2013 really aren't of much use.
