Broadcaster Notes to All Listeners:
This scanner feed will go offline on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 11:00 pm to 12:00 am for regular equipment feed maintenance.
Should the event of a power & internet outage, the scanner may remain offline for a prolonged amount of time until a troubleshooter can restore power and reconnect the scanner back to the online server. We ask for the public’s patience, should that situation arise.
All Police Tactical, Car-to-Car, SWAT, and Detective Talkgroups/Channels have been locked out in accordance/compliance with Broadcastify Terms of Service (TOS). None of these channels will be unlocked under any circumstances.
During events of police situations (such as manhunts, hostage, a missing person, and other police sensitive situations): DO NOT tweet or post police movements during that period to protect the first responders at the scene or responding to the scene. Should a discovery of such posts or tweets on any social media platform be found, we reserve the right to take our feed or take the channel offline, to help protect our first responders and potential victims at the scene as well. We will bring the feed online again once the situation is declared over.
Information (such as a person's name, license #, license plates) disclosed during any police and fire incidents are also considered sensitive and ask the public not to tweet or post such information on any platform of social media. Should a discovery of such posts or tweets on any social media platform are found, we reserve the right to take our feed or the channel offline.
*This rule also applies to juveniles (children under the age of 18).*
During events of serious, critical, or fatal incidents (including vehicle accidents, rescues, medical, and public incidents): Please DO NOT tweet or post moment by moment events happening at the scene or information related to that incident (including graphic details) on any platform of social media and ask everyone to be sensitive to the situation that is ongoing and to the potential victims at the scene. This will ensure the affected families are properly notified of the incident by authorities. Should a discovery of such posts or tweets on any social media platform are found, we reserve the right to take our feed offline or lockout that channel, this will help protect the potential victims at the scene and again ensure proper notification is made. We will bring the feed or channel online again once the situation is declared over.
