Garden City Police Scrambling Radio Traffic

KSCB News - July 13, 2010 12:00 am

Garden City uses encryption to stop listeners Garden City police have begun

scrambling broadcasts over police radios, making it impossible for

people to listen in on police scanners.

Garden City police Sgt. Michael Reagle says the department

decided to use encryption to protect officers’ safety. And he says

it prevents criminals from hearing police calls, which might warn

them officers are on the way.

The Garden City Telegram reports that several residents are

frustrated with the new police policy.

Therese Cruz, who used to listen to scanner traffic, says

encryption prevents residents from knowing what’s going on in the

western Kansas city.
