• 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:

Sounds like a good idea anyway. But how many other troops will be begging for a new HQ now? $2.5 million for 10 acres of land? That seems a little steep. I think they should find another location. Either that or it is a political deal and somebody will make a lot of money if this is approved?

How old is the current building that they are using? Some of the state police posts here in Michigan, date back to the 1930s, and were part of the WPA, under the FDR Administration. Those buildings really need to be replaced, as they cost a lot to heat in the winter months.
