For Monterey County to remove encrypted police radio

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Recently, Agencies in Monterey County went from Analog to digitial and now fully encrypted, meaning nobody is able to listen in on police radio traffic. 

The media and local crime watch pages that worked very hard to keep the community informed, are now left with silent scanners and the community is left in the dark. 

By allowing citizens to listen and monitor radio traffic, it's giving law enforcement additional eyes and ears to help them catch criminals, missing persons, etc. 

While we understand a lot of it has to do with officer safety, there is no evidence that shows encrypting regular police radio traffic has or will actually improve their safety. 

Thats why we would like to regain access to regular, day to day operations to keep the community aware and we will support Monterey County in keeping tactical or special investigations encrypted.
