    threats made over airwaves against Sheriff.

    Lake County News | California - Sheriff's office says it's investigating threats on law enforcement radio frequency

    Sheriff's office says it's investigating threats on law enforcement radio frequency

    LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The Lake County Sheriff's Office said Friday it is investigating a series of radio transmissions on local law enforcement frequencies that included apparent threats against the sheriff.
    At approximately 10:05 p.m. Sunday, July 3, radio communications between the Lake County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center and patrol deputies working in the field was suddenly interrupted by over 10 minutes of radio interference on the sheriff’s primary frequency, according to Bauman.




    He said the interference came at a time of peak activity during the busiest shift of the day and disrupted public safety operations as sheriff’s personnel were handling calls for service during the holiday weekend.




    That same night, within minutes of the transmission, Lake County News received communications from two separate community members who reported hearing an unidentified individual come over the radio and say, “Watch your back, Rivero, you're gonna get shot.”

    The sheriff there is an ass but still no excuse to jepordize deputies' safety by tying up the net.

    Sounds like a stolen or missing radio.

    The agencies I've worked at can shut off stolen or missing radios from dispatch and also see who is keying up. This sounds like an older system.
    Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    All the systems in that area are old. This is near my old agency. The county used to look on ebay for parts for their dispatch center because no company made them anymore. They are all still on VHF. No UHF systems could make it over those mountains and canyons.

    That's unfortunate. You could easily identify and inhibit a radio on a more modern system. Also VHF is not hard to program into a some radios. The DPL code would be a bit harder to get but not impossible. I had a jakeleg Kenwood radio years ago that I could field-program with any VHF freq I wanted.
