Loveland police latest agency to encrypt channels amid legislative push for transparency

Fort Collins Coloradoan: The Loveland Police Department quietly encrypted its police scanners in October, following a statewide trend of law enforcement agencies restricting who can listen to their calls for service.

But a bill working through the Colorado legislature would require agencies to give media access to their traffic, even if it’s encrypted.
