• 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:

I agree, I expected them to be on the system, the question is when they say all Law Enforcement will be encrypted does it mean ALL? We will see soon, maybe the week starting on the 23rd.

Well just talked to my Son after attending tonights training and his understanding is that All Law will be encrypted and Millcreek will have its own Dispatching. Still no info on actual TGID Numbers Talk Group.

Encryption on TG 207 today.
I saw that, 200's might be encrypted TGIDs that we will have to AVOID or not program. My son stopped by with a truck load of Radios and Pagers for the FD. He had to take them to FD to get them put together, charged and ready to go and do some further testing. He said some of the radios were assigned to the officers and dispatch will know who's radio it is and where they are by GPS. Radios cost $over $3000 each and Unification Pagers $600. He said he's not thrilled with not having same pager info available as before but guess they will work that out. He thinks West County will come online early October. I hope it works out well. Will be interesting Monday to see if Erie goes online as planned.

They were testing dispatch tones yesterday. Today all EPD cars are going to the garage for a "Radio Test". As Terry mentioned I think all 200 TGs are PD and will be encrypted.

Just heard from a reporter at the Times. Millcreek PD will be encrypted. Also, the County has no agreement with the news media for them to have any access to daily news events involving the police. Not a good situation for sure!
