It means the radio signal is digitally encoded, so that only a radio with the correct "key" can decode the digital data to hear the transmission.

There is no scanner able to receive encrypted transmissions, because it's illegal.

No. It means that the transmissions are encrypted and you can't hear them.

Dispatch channels, tac channels, any channel can be encrypted. There are lots of types of encryption. No matter which one it used, you can program the frequency in, but you won't hear anything intelligible on it.

Depends on the radio system. Unless you're within a mile or two, you can't hear the tac channels where I volunteer either. However, all 13 tac's at work are repeated.
