You can still pick these up on a scanner? Don't police use encrypted bands these days?Heard/saw a police siren go by today (US) so turned on the scanner
It was a "well being check" on a "paranoid" 48-year old male with 4 registered firearms on the line with 911. The address is to an oceanfront golf/country club type apartment complex. Police report no response at the door - dispatch says he's on the line and seems agitated - meanwhile more sirens go by. Police report door is locked, verbal contact, no compliance. Last thing I heard was staging for forced entry into the bedroom. This all happened within about 15 mins
Radio silence - guess I'll check local news tomorrow
I would imagine that gangs and drug cartels would listen to the scanner for counter intel.
