• 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:

Maybe it's the heavily armed suspect held up in a home on College with high powered rifles and automatic weapons that swat is deploying for.

Thanks Jim, I wasn't sure if I was hearing the beginning of the situation or the end. Sounds like it could be a long night for them. You forgot to mention the whiskey and 50+ pills!

Not sure if anyone else is listening on the LCSO side as well, but why do they even have it patched? You can hear like one or two words then the patch just cuts out

Patch discontinued. Radio traffic moved from LC MAC 4 to FCPD 6.
Location is near College and Willox.

Film at 11...?

Pretty scary when you hear them calling in help from other agencies. There was a time where all officers were on calls and they had to get CSU to assist.

The CSU PD was sent to assist with contacting a subject at 2211 W Mulberry (Skyline Mobile Home Park). Not related to the incident in progress just west of College on Willox.

The SWAT is getting ready to attempt delivery of a cell phone to the subject.

There are units stationed on both east and west sides of the subject address.

This incident has been in progress for about 90 minutes now...

I guess I didn't make that real clear. Yes, that was the call I heard where CSU was assisting. I think that all Larimer SO units have cleared because they were having coverage issues and back up problems as well.

A suicidal man who held police at bay for more than five hours Monday night is in Poudre Valley Hospital today for a mental health evaluation.
Fort Collins police entered the man’s home in the 700 block of West Willox Lane at about 11 p.m. Monday to find the man semi-conscious and intoxicated, said Fort Collins police Lt. Dave Freismuth. No one was injured in the incident, Freismuth said. The man called police at 5:40 p.m. threatening suicide. His family, which had evacuated the home, reported the man had access to several guns, rifles and semi-automatic weapons. He was also reported to be drinking and taking medication.
No criminal charges will be filed, Freismuth said.
