I've been volunteering the Millburn PD dispatch feed for the last 5 years or so. I've never really been that active of a listener, so it wasn't until yesterday when I got a trouble report that I noticed there was no audio on it. I saw last night that they migrated to the NJICS P25 system and was going to set up my scanner to monitor the new system. I saw this thread on the main Radioreference site and read a few pages back that Millburn PD was now full time encrypted.

That's disappointing. I've been told be a few MPD officers over the years that they listen to my feed on their way to a shift or after to see what's happening. Guess those days are over.

So it's confirmed that Millburn is now full time E?

Thanks,
John
Please ask A Millburn PD Officer why they felt the need for FULL TIME E on Dispatch

The average cop doesn't know and doesn't care. All he cares is that his radio works when he turns it on, and that someone hears him when he presses the big button to talk.

I think that perhaps it's time to stop bellyaching every single time an agency or talkgroup goes encrypted. Posting the same thing over and over again is becoming tiresome for many reading these threads looking for actual information.

Roger roger. I was only asking because it related to the functioning of the feed I was providing. I’ve already moved on and repurposed the MOTU 624 I was using as an interface/DSP. Turns out that thing makes a pretty nice DAC/headphone amp. Hobby giveth, hobby taketh away.

I’ve sat at tables with some of the highest level of administrators (Sheriff’s, Chiefs, system admins, etc). The system admins do what the others say because at the end of the day, that’s the boss. I can tell a boss a hundred times why dispatch should remain clear and how simple it is to change a channel to an encrypted one with the simple flip of a knob. At the end of the day, it’s their call. You have PD’s that don’t even share their key with neighboring PD’s. You have towns that won’t switch to a trunked system because the County won’t let them unless the County dispatches them. And then they cry they can’t talk to each other in meetings. I’ve literally said, let them switch and maintain their own dispatch only to hear grown men argue. Not kidding.

No worries, my post was not directed towards you at all. You're asking because you were providing the feed, and unlike others, you obviously have not had a history of making the same repetitive comments over and over again each time encryption is mentioned.
