We'd sometimes play cards and side-bet on whether or not the perp would be nabbed before we were done.I thought I would make everyone aware of this website scanamerica.us, they have live police scanners online for a lot of the cities of most of the states (and also fire/ems).
It's obviously fun to listen to the radio calls but a lot of the audio is also archived so perhaps in addition to getting an FOIA thing started someone (and us) can perhaps listen to any relevant radio traffic.
Not every single department is listed and some channels have multiple depts on them so the specific audio for an incident may not even be available online, or the audio may be jumbled (trying to figure out what's relevant and what's not during a particular timeframe).
I've been listening for about a year or so. I have yet to hear any MWAG guns, though....so I guess no one around Colo Spgs cares about OCers :celebrate
I heard two transmission in the last twenty minutes - that can't be all that's going on in a population of 225,000??? !!!
Where's the rest of the chatter?
