Update on Scanner Reception

Police ScannerMany of you who listen to law enforcement traffic on your home scanners may have noticed a change as the conversion from analog to digital has taken place. ┬áHere’s a message from Sheriff Keith Lovin to update folks on the situation.

“Just to update you on our main law enforcement channel. As many of you found out, we went digital in our communications. There were many reasons, but the primary reasons involved officer safety and clarity of signals. By moving to digital, the officers and dispatchers are able to communicate more clearly and accurately which equates to greater citizen safety. However a side effect was the loss of the scanner reception.

Here is the good news! We are in the process of streaming our digital law enforcement broadcast via the internet and rebroadcasting on analog. All this takes a little time, but I assure you that we are marching as fast as we can. Once completed, you will have access 24/7 to our law enforcement main channel via the internet and over smart phones as well as your scanners will once again buzz with the sounds of our folks hard at work.

I will keep you updated as new events become available. In the mean time know that we are keeping the safety and security of the citizens first and foremost in our minds.”
