Encryption is very much needed for Police communications everywhere but here in the valley with the technology the Cartels have been using it is critical. There are apps we all can use on our smart phones that allow anyone to listen in to Police Radio traffic, almost anywhere in the valley. We all need to be concerned, bad guys can use radio traffic to warn them of police response, or to set up attacks on responding officers. The RFP for buying new communications really needs to be a very well drafted document. We are in a era of many communications changes, and it can be difficult to stay on the leading edge and not the bleeding edge. The bleeding edge is that area where untested technology features are, that often turn out to be bad investments or worse, problems that need to be removed at some cost.
