Radios being monitered?

Do the police monitor public channels on walkie-talkies?

They monitor EVERYTHING



J/K, i have no idea... but you're probably way more likely to get pulled over based on a speed laser reading than something you say to your friend in another car about speeding, even if they are monitoring it.

Re: Radios being monitered?

cuz this past week my friends and i were talking on the radios about going drifting at a parking lot (somewhere in NYC) ... we were heading there, and like 5 mins after we talked about it, we saw like 8 cops with their lights on.. i was a lil ahead of them so they saw the cops go past them, and i was near the parking lot.. i thot they were coming after me or something so i almost shit in my pants lol.. but then i saw all 8 of them enter the parking lot... were they gonna camp and wait for us or something?? too much to be a coincidence...

Re: Radios being monitered?

how many friends were there? I doubt they'd send 8 units for something that hasn't happened yet.

Re: Radios being monitered?

I'd be suprised if it was departmental policy. Is some bored cop sitting surfing through the CB channels running radar? I am sure it happens sometimes.

Frankly when it comes to broadcast I don't say shit that I wouldn't care if someone else overheard. Heck even encrypted radio only goes so far, but I figure that is at least fairly secure.

Of course that being said I don't really have anything particularly important that I'd stray from discussing. I just don't do things like, say, discuss my sex life with my wife over an unencrypted radio. I figure if someone is hacking an encrypted radio they can hear about my sex life if they care that darned much.

Re: Radios being monitered?

I was upstate many years ago and was talking with a trooper up there and asked about CB radios (they once monitored channel 9) and he said they no longer even have them in their cars. I call coincidence.

They wouldn't send 8 cops to stop kids from doing some drifting in a parking lot. Hell my neighbors kitchen just burnt down and there were only 4 cops on scene.

Re: Radios being monitered?

lol there were 5 of us in total.

well it could have been coincidence.. it was near the end of the month, and maybe they needed to write some tickets (their requirements)?

once i was at some parking lot doing some photoshoot, and i got a freaking ticket for being there after 9pm! fuck that!
