  1. Even though many people enjoy listening to the scanners, criminals also can listen while committing a crime. They hear the police are on their way, they take off.
    I would support encrypting police calls to protect our officers.

  2. I like Chief Pugliese, however I do not like this idea. One more step toward less transparency. On the road to tyranny.
