Virginia Beach Police Plan to Encrypt Radio Channels, Supposedly to Stop the Public from Listening In

In city documents, Virginia Beach police said encryption is needed because criminals listen to police communications. It would greatly increase officer safety and help protect citizens, they wrote. You can read the details in an article by Robyn Sidersky, Amy Poulter, and Jane Harper in The Virginian-Pilot at: http://bit.ly/2I9rzlx.

One has to wonder why some government officials are trying to block encrypted communications or else place “back doors” in all encryption products to allow police and other government agents as well as hackers to spy on all citizens. I am sure the Virginia Beach police will agree to having “back doors” installed in their encrypted channels, right?
