I wanted to share a link to the police scanner for the DNC this week. They are reported to be moved to a different channel with zero traffic.

It shows: Status: Due to terroristic threats to Police Officers, this scanner will be locked on J-Band during the DNC.

It points to possibly this threat to a building near the arena?

If anyone has found a working scanner, I would be much appreciative!

Interesting. They didn't have to shut the down or change them for the RNC.

I wonder why? They must have some sort of actionable intelligence.

WOW...thanks for posting this.
Could it be that they don't want Anti-Hillary protests reported on?

State of secrets. For now its just the Convention, but one day they will stop all public broadcast of police traffic.

Secret radios for a secret police state.

Like the one in the OP?

I'm not saying right or wrong and there may be other threats that the media aren't aware of.

Different Police departments different rules?

Little bit unrelated but it certainly outlines the stakes :

Kind of feels like paying to watch a movie you also paid to produce.

In fairness, here is the tallies for the RNC:

Sort of. A letter isn't actionable, but is cause for an investigation though.

By actionable I mean capability. People make all kinds of threats they are completely incapable of carrying out.

I don't think they would do this without a good reason. Anarchists or somethig maybe IDK.

I doubt they are doing it to hide anything necessarily.

Considering we had radio traffic for Dallas, Orlando, SB etc. I am seriously disturbed by this. From my POV if something were to escalate, THEN it would be moved to a different or encrypted channel. I've yet to see a restriction based upon an assumption.

I do not know if there are any FOI for this but since there is not an imminent threat, I see zero reason to black out the channel.

Anarchist, animal rights, black panthers were all at the RNC.

Maybe. I haven't seen any evidence of Philly doing this before though. Though I haven't seen any evidence of Philly NOT doing this before either.

Sure, but they may have intelligence of an act in Philly and none in Cleveland.

Just funny how everyone is against federal standards for police departments (they think it means nationalised police) and how they hate when different departments do things differently.

Amen and pass the ammo on that one.

Body cams for all, national training standards (ladder of force isn't taught everywhere), etc.

This is a choice made by www.broadcastify.com... to show traffic on only on J band.



Status: Due to terroristic threats to Police Officers, this scanner will be locked on J-Band during the DNC.

Broadcasting Philadelphia Project 25 talk groups;

PPD J-Band (broadcasts all priority calls in the city and is used by citywide units)
PPD T-Band (used by Traffic units)
PPD Events 1 (used when units are tasked to a special event)
PPD Events 2 (used when units are tasked to a special event)
The feed is broadcasted with a Uniden BCD396XT scanner.

The primary purpose of this feed is to keep the residents and business owners of Philadelphia informed about what is happening in our community.


The police are not doing anything different.

Do you have a link for that? I mean that this is a broadcastify and not the police?
