• 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:

Probably a silly question, but here goes...
I keep hearing the term "with or without flash" in a lot of the police calls...Is that in reference to a gun being fired??
thanks,

Could it be in reference to the light bar on the squad car roof ? :confused:
As in , what sort of response is warranted .
Other than that , I'm thinking a crime scene where evidence is being photographed .
Is this a common term , heard daily ?

I think that you might be right about the light bar. Arriving on the scene without lights or siren..
