    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:

Question for those in law enforcement dispatching in IL:

I'm looking for the state system (LEADS? Unsure what IL calls it) TTY mnemonics for NE IL counties...specificallly Lake, McHenry, Boone and Winnebago.

Here in WI they are 4 letters, but I don't know how Illinois is laid out. The 9 digit ORI's won't help me much, as I don't have the space for that. Info is needed for a reference book in my Post's comm center, and feel free to PM me with the info.
