• 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:

Why are they all going back to Black and white? Don't get me wrong it looks good, just wondering why the change.

Sort of like red fire trucks (which I wish my department had).

Thanks for the pic, Troop. That is one very sharp looking car.
I'm surprised to see a roof mounted lightbar. Around these parts (2B, 2D) it seems that all of the newer cars have rear deck and windshield LED bars, nothing on the roof. It looked like the trend was to get away from roof mounted lights, but I guess not.

I see that they are still installing VHF radios in the cars....... I wonder why? Could it be that DTRS still is not what it should be? Yes, I am being sarcastic...
