    Shots fired in Lexington Park is as common as feeling wet when it rains. This is not news it’s reality.

    Good thing the St. Nary’s Sheriffs Office ENCRYPTS all of “their” RADIO TRANSMISSIONS, a little late to got outside now and See & Identify a car speeding away from the Vicinity.

    DECRYPT your Radio Police Dispatch Channel so Locals Can Hear and See Something after somethings dispatched in their area. At the very least provide/host it to Broadcastify with a 2 minute Delay, to be streamed, that way you could at least take the Feed Down if something is too Tactically sensitive, for Units to switch to an ENCRYPTED Channel. Though I do believe, SWAT & VICE NARCOTICS should be the only ones transmitting All the time in ENCRYPTION. You are costing the Citizens their Safety.

    A Policeman’s general safety is jeopardized by their:
    -wearing distinct UNIFORMS
    -Clearly Marked Vehicles
    -Siren’s on the Vehicles that tends to travel for miles and miles
    -The Quantity and Type of “Flashing Strobe Lights” that can be blinding & disorienting
    -They Respond to any and all Calls
    -they regularly meet at a single location
