• 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:

What happened to the Seminole County Sheriff broadcast feed? The Seminole County Fire feed is still running strong but the Sheriff feed has been down for almost a year and a half now.

What is the legality of setting up my own feed to broadcast those talk groups?

I'd be very concerned what that might cause, based on what's happened in Orange county and other places.

Can you elaborate a bit more on what you mean by this?

Law enforcement agencies in this state have expressed their distaste with the accessibility of scanner live feeds and apps and have mentioned them as a reason for moving towards encryption.

Seminole County has expressed that it intends to REMAIN un-encrypted regardless of the communities intentions simply to remain transparent in it's agency and the agencies it supports on it's radio system. Also, it has been rumored by some of the operators that when the new Sheriff is elected for Orange County that the encryption will be dropped and the Cafe Data System used by Seminole will be taken up in replacement of Orange's current system.

If that's what they're saying today, then that's great. But Seminole County purchased encryption and they can theoretically use it at anytime. And as you hinted, leadership changes. That can make a difference in the agencies the "stance" on the matter and not always for the better.

That is true, but from the many talks I have had with operators and technicians of Seminole's P25 system I feel confident when I say that the system will remain un-encrypted unless a major tragedy occurs. From my understanding Donald has made it very clear he wants transparency to remain in this agency even after he retires this year (or early next).

Just my knowledge. We all know different things.

This may be news to you but the Sheriff is elected. So, when a new Sheriff is elected...you see where we are headed here.

Because I thought it was a put your name in the hat and hope you are picked type deal. Yes, I know they are elected. I'm glad they are elected so this way Jerry can't bring in someone that will act as a puppet for him; we need different leadership at times. This is not the topic of my thread. Let's move on.
