These are the questions Rockford Scanner submitted. 

We highly doubt they will ask these questions during the forum, but we have submitted them. 

We would like to ask the following questions: 
  1. Do you plan on un-encrypting the police radio communications? 
  2. If not, Why do you plan on keeping the radios encrypted when it has been proven that encryption in Rockford is not safe for the officers or the community?  (Since encryption (Approx. 5 years): 3 officers hurt, 2 are dead. Before encryption (15 years): The last officer hurt was Detective Rice)
  3. When we call to get information about scenes, Rockford PD is non-transparent and does not provide any information at all about scenes.
    So our question is: Do you plan on making RPD more transparent and how?
  4. With the public’s trust with law enforcement at an all time low in Rockford.  
    How do you plan on gaining the public’s support? (If you don’t plan on un-encrypting the radios)
  5. You say that criminals can listen in and get away, because of the un-encryption.   
    Our question is: So you are saying for the last 50 years that police had their radios un-encrypted, not one criminal who was listening to a scanner was ever caught?  (Then how do you know criminals are listening in, if not 1 criminal was ever caught.
    And if they were caught, then explain how your statement of criminals listening in and going encrypted.)

The police encryption and non transparency is driving a huge wedge between the community and the local law enforcement.
The police know this, but still choose to stay encrypted. Then get mad about the community for not supporting, or helping law enforcement.
Questions:
Would you support someone who hides stuff from you, and lies to you on a daily basis???
How can a community help, if they are not informed???
