Lancaster County will not open police communications for public listening, commissioners decide

Lancaster County will not open up police communications for the public to hear, the Board of Commissioners decided on Tuesday.

Commissioner Craig Lehman, who pushed for reversing the 2017 decision to encrypt police communications, made a final effort to compromise by advancing a plan that would allow a 30-minute delay before the communications would become public.

Commissioners Josh Parsons and Ray D'Agostino ultimately believed the argument that encryption protects officers and the public's private information outweighed Lehman's argument that allowing the public to listen would promote transparency and good police-public relations.
