• 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:

We cut them over 2 days ago to the TRS. The talk-groups listed in the RR database are accurate for their operations.

Mark -

Kinda off topic, but kinda on --- The county wants to dispatch for all the departments eventually (Boca, Delray, etc.), right?

I've also heard that if this went through, they'd also be sending the closest unit to every call. I've heard people don't want this because it would mean a Boca unit transporting a trauma to delray, would then possibly get a call in delray's zone since they'd be the closest unit.

Does this make any sense, has anybody been talking about all of this?

Thanks

It's in the process with almost every FD in Palm Beach buying into it as they would migrate to an FD Dispatch center and would be, let's just say, no longer second to LE when it comes to communications.

PBCFR has so many agencies that have bought into it, with more coming on every month, the cities to the South will be by themselves within the next year.

Is it a plus? You bet! Someone having a heart attack doesn't care what name is printed on the side of the truck or what name is on the patch. They just want to go to the hospital via the fastest means possible.

One of the largest FD's in the County (West Palm Beach) migrates in the September/October time frame and PBCFR already dispatches for some of it's more western units due to WPB radio coverage issues. I just don't see what issues Boca & Delray have other than its a turf war.
