This insightful article from CJR regarding encrypted police scanners resonates here in Chicago.Last fall Lori Liefoot, our disgraced former mayor ordered a 30 minute delay on recently encrypted police traffic essentially blocking out critical communications that many considered to be key to public safety issues in certain “rowdy” hoods . In the case of an active shooter or what we have recently seen as robbery and carjacking sprees these delays in public notifications could be proven to be deadly for some in the wrong place at the wrong time.
