• 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:

Colorado State Patrol Creates Unit To Enforce Immigration

Story by thedenverchannel.com

Gov. Bill Owens signed a bill into law Tuesday that will launch a new unit aimed at enforcing immigration laws and laws against human trafficking and smuggling.

"There are few crimes more heinous than the smuggling and trafficking of human beings. Enforcement is a key element in the state's efforts to stop this appalling practice and the new CSP unit will play a critical role," Owens said.

The immigration unit will eventually include 24 members. Colorado State Patrol said they need this unit to deal with both traffic safety and immigration issues.

"We don't want to take the resources from traffic safety out on the road," said trooper Eric Wynn. "This is a resource for our agency so we can continue to achieve our goal to improve the traffic safety on the road ways."

On July 1, 12 current Colorado State troopers will join the team specifically targeting immigration enforcement on the road. They will be trained both by the Colorado State Patrol and by federal agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It's a program modeled after similar effort in Alabama, Florida and Arizona.

Colorado State Patrol will add another 12 members with the intention of being fully operational by July 2007. They will also add new troopers to the State Patrol to replace those moving to the program.

Last week Gov. Owens signed two other bills that make human smuggling and human trafficking felonies.

my opinion, a total waste of resources. They make it sound like the 24 troopers they are taking are going to be instantly replaced. What they dont tell you is that we have roughly the same amound of staff that we had in the 70's and we're far behind in staffing. All these units ie Immigration, Homeland Security, that the Gov keeps creating does nothing but zap troopers off the road, where they belong. Quite aggervating for the road Troops.

I agree troop...Not enough troopers to go around, and now we pull a couple of dozen off the road to do the Feds job. That makes a helluva lot of sense!

I would think when you drive a desk all day you have no idea how it is out where the rubber meets the road. I agree with Troop, this is a stupid idea. Politics should stay out of Law Enforcement.

Ive been hearing Immigration-7 on the 3B Disp., Is this part of this placing Troopers on Immigration duty?
It's actually on 1A, and no...the transfers are not officially in effect untill later this month but for the sakes of logistics they changed his call sign early...he is still doing Road Trooper Duties for that troop. You probably wont be hearing them do anything until summer rolls around
