• 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 also listen to LAPD quite often. There's action 24/7. That's one of busiest cities in the US, as far as police activities goes. I hear the murder rate is already up from the same last year. Everytime I turn on the TV, there's a gang shooting somewhere and innocent bystanders are always the victims, especially kids.

I don't know this for sure but I wonder if there's a shortage of officers?

Another point, when bad incidents happen like gang shootings or accidents from high speed chases, I often hear the family members of the victim lay blame on the police. I do feel sorry for the victims and their family members but it's not the fault of the police. The blame lies entirely on the suspect or suspects. That's my opinion anyway.

Everybody has a shortage of officers. Recruitment, retention, and qualified candidates are major issues. Pressure for benefit reduction and no/small increases in pay are making it difficult for many locations to get employees. Add poor economic times and it doesn't help the situation.

And I know a LOT of cops that have no interest in even setting foot inside LA, much less working there.

And gang members and their families get just about zero sympathy from the cops.

Does anybody know of any good LAPD live streaming feeds that I can play using media player, winamp, Real Player etc?
I think Teamspeak had some, but I could never get Teamspeak to work.
