• 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 wish they would put the NCIC data base on the internet so we could all look up people.

Some of it is public record. Information possibly related to on-going investigations isn't ... for obvious reasons.

TDCJ website allows you to look up any incarcerated offender and tells you their full name, age, unit of assignment, and offense of incarceration. And it drives the inmates crazy that people, mainly officers, can access this information. However, they have access to officer's name and rank, and can keep a handwritten list of every officer on the unit if they want to so long as name and rank are all they record.

When I went through NCIC class, we had to watch 3 videos, and 2 power points, I think half the class (4) fell asleep.

Was that your certification or re-certification course?

My last re-certification course consisted of the (Highway Patrol era, I still would like one of the Dodge Chargers, and dispatchers using the old 40+) videos, and sitting around a table, reading the instruction manual out loud, and taking a short test. It would have been impossible to fall asleep, although by 3PM it would have been possible.

The certification course (many moons ago) was 40 hours and nobody fell asleep. There were two dispatchers from Texarkana (Bi-State) in the class that kept everyone laughing, since they told tales comparing and contrasting Arkansas and Texas laws.
