PETITION TO KEEP ROCKFORD POLICE SCANNER OPEN AND FREE


We, the undersigned citizens do hereby request that the City of Rockford and Rockford Police Department continue to keep the police scanner open, transparent, unedited and free.

The Rockford Police Scanner has been open, transparent, unedited and free since it started many years ago. A lot of Rockford residents and Winnebago County residents depend and rely on the scanner for its unedited, open, free and transparent information. The existing unedited, open, free and transparent scanner system helps inform residents as to what is going on in our town at the present time and we want to keep it that way.


More information ~ http://rockfordscanner.com/2016/06/24/rockford-pol...

The Rockford police department plans on going full encryption on August 1st 2016.

This will not allow any citizen or media outlet to listen to the everyday police scanner traffic.

You will NOT know what is going on around town.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION
