• 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 a thread last summer or early fall with one painted for MD State Police. Very nice pictures were posted too. I guess they are on the way. Supposed to be the 425 Hemi in what they are calling the "Enforcer" package. Enforcer comes in either the Charger or Magnum. Can't wait for the official rollout.

MD Transportation Authority PD started running theirs a couple of months ago. You can usually find it running radar on 895 south of the Harbor Tunnel. It's fully marked with a lo-pro LED lightbar.

A quote from today's ( Saturday 7/8) Annapolis newspaper:

"I can pull someone over and give them a ticket and they compliment the car. They could care less about the ticket."

Anne Arundel County police Cpl. Mark Camm, on the reaction to the 2006 Dodge Chargers being tried out by the department as police cars.

Charger

I am an AA Co. Pd. Sgt. We purchased one Dodge Charger as a test vehicle. So far the test has went well. it will take some time to see how it works out as far a maintenance, etc. The car has awsome power. Knowing how our department and purchasing authority think. The V6 is much less expensive and has about the same power as a Crown Vic. If they do decide to purchase the Charger I would guess it will be the V6 version. Even at that the crown vic is about the same price, so I don't see the department changing from the Crown Victoria anytime soon. Would I like to drive a Dodge Charger, Oh yea! Do I think I will be anytime soon, Nope.

Dorchester County has at least 3 of the new Chargers, I saw them sitting on the parking lot a couple of weeks ago. Watch yourself on the way to OC.
