• 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:

I was just told by a friend of mine who works with york regional police that they are in the process of switching from their ten codes to the ones that toronto uses. There has too much confussion between toronto and york over york regions ten code that they have decided to adopt torontos instead thus eliminating tre confussion between both agencys.

I guess it's possible but doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the reason stated.

York interacts with the OPP, Durham and South Simcoe police via radio patch more frequently than with TPS so it just seems like that might not be the reason.

The last few times I've heard an emergency button activation I did notice they are no longer using the Code 100 and instead were using 10-33. During the tornadoes last week the dispatch was voiced as respond to a major disaster instead of the code 500. Haven't heard any of the other 100's series code calls lately (100 officer needs assistance, 200 emergency calls only, 300 armed/barricaded suspect/hostage, 400 bomb and 500 major disaster incl aircraft).

I'll see if any of my sources might be able to shed additional light on this subject one way or the other. As I said, change is likely but not to accomodate TPS. Normally when there is any intercommunication they just dump codes completely anyway.
