    Okay, who just got pulled over and had to give their Ruger toa VBPDofficer?



    I was just listening to http://www.radioreference.com for the Virginia Beach area ( http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?ctid=2954 ) and the officer just ran a check on a Ruger and the operator came back saying negative. Didn't catch the traffic violation.

    lol. Been listening to Fairfax county for the last three days at work. That website is awesome. Some of the things you hear broadcast on these calls is crazy.

    That's amazing. It's a shame they don't have all the frequencies for each area.

    You guys are killing me!

    So glad to turn you all on to that site.

    There was a thread a while back here, about "what to" and "what not to do" during a traffic stop while carrying, and why dispatchers do or do not tell the officer about the concealed permits when they come up on the VCIN computer.

    As you guys listen a little more, you will hear how some agencies address the concealed permits when doing a traffic stops.

    Enjoy!

    In the forums section of Radio Reference, go to this one:

    http://forums.radioreference.com/str...dio-recording/

    A lot of times, links will pop up here before they get listed on the site.

    Some agencies can run VCIN through their computers in their cars. There is also a program that will allow they to get into VCIN through a Blackberry.

    I used to be a scanner fanatic. I alway had one with me. I loved the old days when you could scan all the cell calls

    If someone comes up with a reliable way to decrypt the mobile computer terminals, it would really be interesting.

    You are correct!

    A lot of police agencies use "MCT's" in there vehicles.

    They may or may not contact a dispatcher when they initiate a stop.

    They have almost all the access to VCIN and NCIC that the dispatchers do.

    Depends on the agency. Also, some departments use it to send instant messages to the cruisers too.

    Although it is against the law to listen to cell calls on a scanner, you would be surprised at how many cell frequencies are still active in analog (not digital or encrypted) and what you still can hear if you have an older scanner, but remember, it is against the law to listen to cell calls on a scanner....But not against the law to listen to a cell call when the person next to you is on his or hers, blabbing their conversation out loud!

    Even with the new ones, ost can be modded with a jumper or two....or so I've heard. As you said, it's illegal so I wouldn't think of doing it.

    The newer systems use frequency hopping, and can send data, video, as well as voice. They also use GPS so the desk SGT knows where the cars are, and can see what the dash cam of the patrol car is seeing. There is all kinds of high tech goodies. They have a licence plate recognition system that can read 3000 plates a minute from a patrol car and comperes to a hit list and alert the patrolman if the plate is on it. I do research for the Military Police in this area.

    I've been listening a lot over the past week. When I"m in my car I plug my iPhone into my FM transmitter and play it over my car speakers. I should get a video camera and be a stringer and race to the scene of each call. :P

    Do that and you're liable to become a suspect at one of those scenes...

    This is a really cool service, this Radio Reference thing...

    But there isn't a police, fire, or ems service within 2 hours of me in NC that has a system that links in to it...

    Apparently, the Beaufort County and Washington city LEA's are just as secretive with their radio traffic as they are with their "police log" reports, which they do not release to local newspapers either...

    You need to organize and tighten up some laws Dreamer. Looks like your FOI needs upgrading, you need to get rid of the terror to the public law and quit requiring a permit to buy a gun.

    It sounds like you might be misunderstanding how these streams work. The streams are not being provided by the police, fire or ems services, but by local citizens who are scanning and feeding to a streaming service via their own scanners, computers and internet connection.

    It's up to you or someone in your location to do this, not the local authorities.

    Nope. Apparently I missed that particular call between the vigara gone bad incident and the guy who got his face smashed in with a rock. I suppose a gun could help in both incidents, depending on your pain tolerance.

    Anyone listen to the Richmond PD feed? Sounds like R2D2 on crack. I'm guessing this is due to the digital encrypted system they switched to a few years back.

    My question is, why is someone monitoring and providing a live feed of garbled beeps and clicks?

    Edit: Nevermind, I thought they were just talking about two guys open carrying, but they just committed an armed robbery and were running away from the scene with handguns.

    This is my streaming scanner, not to post off topic or anything. It has a few that the other site doesn't.

    Also there is an iPhone Police scanner app that is okay too.
