• 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:

I was going to give the lowdown, but its already in the paper (Detroit News):

I actually heard the chase part of the incident live. It was pretty cool to hear how choreographed and professional the officers and dispatcher were while relating where both chases were going at the same time. There was some stepping on each other, but I would think that would be the case when two fastly evolving incidents are happening at the same time on the same airwaves. The Hamtramck chase actually went longer than the chase that ended in Mad Heights. The driver caught in Hamtramck was driving in circles around a neighborhood and project complex for a couple of minutes, Dukes of Hazzard style. Its cool that no one was hurt, and they caught everyone involved.
