• 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:

Almost everything is Analog, I dunno what's digital, apparently nothing important... at least not main dispatch or anything.

If you check the database, you'll see the listing of talkgroups and the one with D is digital. The A's are analog...

The only digital talkgroups we use are on the MPSCS system, otherwise, our system is still analog. We have some changes taking place right now...separating the Sheriff dispatch from the Airport Police dispatch...originally, we were supposed to be joining Detroit's dispatch center/system, but now it's looking like we're setting up a dispatch center downtown at our Admin building...

Who knows when we'll be switching to a digital system...I keep coming here hoping to find out myself!
