• 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:

For the two RCMP officers killed in the line of duty in Saskatchewan.

I'm not sure if other departments are doing the same but for anyone close to any of the York locations it would be nice if you could stop in and express your sympathies.

From the press release:
Books of condolence will be available for residents to sign at all district stations and in the Great Hall at York Regional Police headquarters in Newmarket, beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 18, 2006.

#1 District is located at 240 Prospect Street, Newmarket.
#2 District is located at 171 Major Mackenzie Drive, Richmond Hill
#3 District is located at 3527 Baseline Road, Sutton
#4 District is located at 2700 Rutherford Road, Vaughan
#5 District is located at 8700 McCowan Road, Markham
Headquarters is located at 17250 Yonge Street, Newmarket

The books will then be sent to the families of the slain officers in memory of their loved ones.

“The tragic deaths of RCMP Constable Robin Cameron and Constable Marc Bourdages, our fellow sister and brother officers will be mourned by officers from all across Canada. When one of us falls, we all stumble,” said Chief La Barge. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these officers and with their friends and colleagues. Today is a day to reflect on the dedication of these officers.”

Chief LaBarge along with Inspector Rick McCabe and other York Regional Police officers will travel to Saskatchewan to attend the funerals of these two officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community.

(was going to post this to the tavern but it is so location specific I thought it might be better here. Moderator: If you feel it better served in the tavern, please relocate thx.)
