• 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:

Does anyone have any info on the Sheriff and/or State police able to monitor THPD EDACS system. If so how are they doing this, with portables or are they using there own radios with that system programmed in also. Reason I ask this, I hear traffic from STATE, not so much from county, about activities on the EDACS system. i.e pursuits and traffic stops that they are en route to help them with. How do they know what is going on, they have to be monitoring City's Digital signal somehow?? right

Thanks for the replies

245pm heard state excise unit advising Terre Haute Post he was en route to assist ISU PD with a person that fled from them... He knew who the subject was and was en route to 4th and Lafayette to assist them

Off hand, I'd say like ISP in my area of the State, mobile radios installed in their cars. Some use scanners, but that won't work for that EDACS system. ISP still use the radios to talk directly with County Dispatch.

To my knowledge, NONE of the District 32 or VCSD cars have an EDACS radio in them.

I do believe the ISP post has an EDACS radio in the dispatch room so they can monitor...and obviously Central Dispatch can hear both city and county/state systems if they want.

I am hearing a lot more informational dispatches on H-MA-1 so city knows what county/state have going and vice versa.

A great example of cobbled-together interoperability, especially when the county dispatcher using a Motorola radio sits right next to the city dispatcher using an Ericcson radio....
