Looking in the Database, I see that Mode "E" is listed for detectives, arson investigators, narcotics, and sert. I would assume that these would be sensitive communications. If so, then the "E" may be for encription ? I have heard previous coms in the clear on several of these talkgroups in the past, but not lately.

my 396T usually stops on a TG even if encryption is being used. also, you can hear about 1/2 sec of encrypted traffic before the scanner squelches it. I have not seen it stop on the detective's TG lately at all.

Yeah E stands for encryption. Every once in a while they may unencrypt it and you will hear them but in general it will be encrypted.
