Montgomery County Sheriff's Office to allow media controlled access to encrypted dispatch


Dec 24, 2015
I received an email from Lt. Scott Spencer with The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office stating that those who identify as media will soon be allowed to submit an application and go through a background check process to gain access to the newly encrypted dispatch talk groups. I am hoping they actually follow through with this, as they honestly have no reason to since no Houston news organizations show much interest in moco, and since Conroe has not offered media access to their dispatch since 2016. As of right now, only one news organization has access to MCSO dispatch, with them being part of a "beta testing" state.

I will hopefully have more to post here in a month or two.
