• 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 they could ask Fairfield County for some pointers on how to operate with no budget! Buying hearts and minds one vote at a time.

Nobody. They won't lose their frequencies just because they can't afford (read: tax payers being too cheap to pay for law/fire/ems protection) to maintain a patrol division.

Wow. I heard this may happen. As a former Auxiliary Deputy Sheriff (2004-2006) at Lorain County Sheriffs Office, I didnt think it would become a reality. I hope its fought hard. Most of those guys are great.

Further, I will believe it when its posted at least on the LCSO website, www.loraincountysheriff.com and not the Plain Squealer.

I've seen threats like this before issued by agencies as a means to stir up and/or manipulate public panic/outrage when a budgetary issue or tax issue doesn't seem like it will be decided in favor of the agency. Maybe the Lorain Co threat holds water, maybe it doesn't. I'm not holding my breath.

Unless Chagrin Falls Twp has been annexed into another town, there are two townships left in Cuyahoga Co... CFT and Olmsted Twp. Olmsted Twp has its own PD, dunno if CFT does or not. Way to go, PD editorial staff...

Sounds as if they are going to try and push a levy on the residents. My county has had some tough times and the township I live in went to the sheriff and got a deputy just for our township and they float all costs for the one deputy. thru levies that the taxpayers passed. Things are looking much better after 3 trips to the polls they pasted a levy for a new SO/jail and tore down the old one. They said it was one of the oldest Jails in the country. hopefully things will change and work out for the best.............hoser147

Chagrin Falls Twp has been gone for ages. It's covered by Chagrin Falls PD.
Looks like the township still actually exists. I find it interesting that even though they're covered by CFPD for law enforcement, they pay out for "police and fire radio service".

135 residents in 38 households in 1/2 a square mile. Yeah... I can see where they might not need their own PD. Unless they want to set up some sort of speedtrap like Linndale (117 residents on 0.1 square mile of land)... ;) Alas, no interstate running through...

Speaking of Cuyahoga Co townships, I assume Riveredge Twp (gone since about 1990) PD numbered their units in the 64** series, assuming there actually was one.
