I have had both York Region AND toronto both in my scanner from almost day 1 of activation and hear NOTHING so most likely everything is encrypted and we are witnessing the end of our Scanner hobby SIGH....
I can only guess that they want address details, nature of the call and contact information kept private.
But like I said, it was only one of the options they were investigating.
The vultures keep traffic flowing, they are needed no matter what the cities and towns tell you..the instant response times keep traffic flowing.. all the politicians are using buzz words and talking about commute times and transit and bla bla bla.. yet they are then encrypting radio traffic, putting people out of work and causing even more delay on the highways as they will need to go to the list for a tow truck.. poor response times will ensue.. and longer commutes in traffic.That would make a lot of sense. They switch to the Dispatch/Ops channel for call details and switch over to TAC for the call...
An probably so the media and those vultures (tows) can't find where an accident or fire etc...will be at
Well, all of us who listen to York are gathering information about York Region... keep calling!￼
For those who have relied on scanners as a means of gathering information on what is happening in York Region are now asked to contact Media Relations Officers or the Duty Inspectors Office after hours. Officers will be available to answer questions on what’s happening throughout the region.
I agree this is a good plan.. might raise some eyebrows.. if we can get media and tow trucks to do this also.Well, all of us who listen to York are gathering information about York Region... keep calling!
"Is there anything happening?"
... "is there anything happening now?"
... "what about now?"
OPP broadcasts over the air to tow trucks in the GTA, those trucks still have to be on a list of approved chase trucks, York uses contract tow companies and prefers not to allow customers a choice of who they do business with after an accident even though the region and the cities within issue business licenses and plates. It's the end of independent towing industry but hopefully the contract companies will be hiring a few extra drivers now that the chase trucks won't have much work and will be going out of business, maybe some of those guys can get hired on.depends who has the police contract for York region.as for the 400 series highways,doesnt the OPP broadcast first available tow?
