• 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:

"The story of the Spokane auto mechanic who raced to save a baby's life, thanks to a smartphone app, is making headlines across the country....

While first responders were being dispatched, two blocks away at Perfection Tire Jeff Olson, a mechanic and volunteer Deer Park EMT was working when his smartphone alerted him there was an incident nearby that required someone with CPR training. His smartphone alerted him thanks to an app he installed called PulsePoint.

“It sounded like an Amber Alert, you know how they come out and so I looked at it and it said CPR needed and it gave the address,” Olson said." -- EMSWorld.com
