How does it 'become a major problem for the daily dispatching' exactly.

The lower mainland in BC is replacing their ancient EDACS system with a P25/phase 2 system that will be 100% AES256 encrypted. EVERYBODY. Police, fire, and ambulance. Even the interop channels are encrypted.

OTAR for the win, and a bunch of departments that have their poop in a group to be able to coordinate encryption keys.
