    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:

Greetings to all,

Does anyone know what the term "NCA" stands for. I have heard some NJ PD's use that term. I am guessing that it essentially means that no action was taken on a complaint/ call. Thanks for all info.

NCA stands for No Car Available.

And if you continually hear it used, either your cops are quite busy or possibly undermanned. Maybe a little of both too.

Thanks to all that responded. I should have provided more info up front; the term is always used in the context of "I'm clear, NCA". The <no cause for action> seems to be what they mean. --John
