• 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 have looked everywhere I can think to look (here and Google) and tried different search parameters but I can’t find the information I am looking for so I’m gonna ask here. First of all, I know Metro is unmonitorable, but hopefully the information is still known. It’s a bit of an odd question.

If an officer works the 2nd shift in the Convention Center command, what would their radio call sign be? Would it be something like “2CC15” kind of thing?

Looks like the units of Convention Center are Mary units. So more like 2 Mary 1

They’re running encrypted why would you want to know their call signs you can’t listen to them unless you’re cracking encryption

Convention Center Area Command covers Mary and Nora area. So after the 1, 2 or 3, you'll hear M or N and then a number which will represent a beat. Sometimes you'll hear TV after a callsign, which represents that unit is driving a TAC vehicle.
They also have VC (violent Crimes) units that can be in or out of uniform.
