• 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:

Hmmmmmmmm Very Interesting, I never thought of that. I wonder why the Niles City Council would give them more money, they added no addtional firemen, they added no additional hours and/or pay for the firemen. I wonder what the extra money goes for?

State Money.

More calls means a need for more state funding.

Just like Police, they will make stats go up and down depending on the need for more money or man power.
