• 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:

there was of course a RIT team assembled but was never neccesary, here in champaign urbana, they live by safety and dont take risks for unoccupied buildings.
We also have a very good relationships with utilities so they respond fast and help the whole operation to be safe.

There was no one in the building at 0317 as it is a business plaza, plus no firefighters even had to go to rehab, they had enough man power to rotate in and out during the whole operation.
