Feed Notes

EBRCS, ALCO Northwest.

Oakland PD Patrol 1,2,3,4,5

This scanner feed will go away soon, when EBRCS/Oakland PD enable full encryption of their radio transmissions. If you wish to stop this, read below.

Please contact your city council, state senators, and representatives and ask them to support California senate bill SB 1000. As Citizens of the state of California, I rely heavily on my radio scanner to help inform me and my community of the goings ons of public safety agencies, as have many other citizens over the past 80 years. These are taxpayer funded agencies using taxpayer funded equipment. The growing trend of full encryption of these agencies radio traffic is troubling. Not only for citizens like myself, but for journalists, the press (of which we all are), and for police accountability and transparency. Please support SB 1000. Most agencies in California have fully encrypted their radios, but there are a number of agencies that have found other ways to comply with the CLETS PII objectives while keeping dispatch audio in the clear. So regardless of what the police unions say, public/press hearing radio calls is not impossible. And further, broadcasting in the clear does not impair interoperability, it does not cost extra money, and it does not create a police safety issue.
