• 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:

Hydes2004,
Are we the only ones in Bristol concerned about this shift?
After 60+ years of transmitting in the clear, Bristol now feels the need to
encrypt all comms. I feel the dispatch analog should be in the clear.
Any undercover/drug enforcement/ surveillance ops can be encrypted.
Shifting between encrypted and clear can be accomplished easily. See
you at the Evereadys !!

I agree.

I dont care that they are now DMR, it sucks that they are encrypted. Let dispatch be in the clear and encrypt everything else.

Noted that Smithfield PD, Cumberland PD, Barrington PD, Fall River PD, and others still
transmit dispatch in the clear (analog). Providence PD and others using the state RISCON (P25) also
transmit dispatch in the clear but digitally using P25 format. They are copyable with a P25
scanner.
The Fire Department are like orphans now. Coordination now has to come thru Fire dispatch.
I wonder how Warren PD and FD do it.
When you get a chance, send me an email . JURYPOWER@yahoo.com
