Logan City Assistant Chief Jeff Curtis said the police department has been tentatively awarded a grant in the amount of $26,813 to purchase the equipment. The grant is through the Northern Utah Homeland Security Coalition.
Curtis said the money would be used to encrypt radio traffic during SWAT, drug, and special operations, preventing it from being picked up and heard by scanners.
It's not the universal graveyard for affordable scanners.Yep, just another snowball that started rolling downhill to the "Valley of encryption"----also known as the universal graveyard for affordable scanners
