- There will be no names posted on any incident. This is just to keep confusion down in most cases. In some instances it would violate the law. No one will know that you are the person in the call unless you say you are! We are not responsible for your identification if you identify yourself! The exception to this rule is if there is an active search for the person or vehicle. For example, if the dispatch calls over the scanner to be on the lookout for a specific person or if they are an escaped inmate.
- DO NOT MAKE ANY COMMENTS THAT IN ANY WAY PERTAIN TO RACISM! DO NOT MAKE STEREOTYPICAL COMMENTS! DO NOT JOKE ABOUT RACISM! YOU WILL BE INSTANTLY BANNED!
- In some cases the location of the calls will not be given. This is not only for your safety but is also for Emergency Personnel safety and to ensure quick and unrestricted access to those locations by emergency service personnel. If the location isn’t in the post DO NOT POST in the comments.
- No posting of codes or frequencies is allowed! The frequencies are all located HERE for free! DO NOT POST THEM!
- DO NOT SEND UNWANTED MESSAGES TO MEMBERS OVER POSTS, COMMENTS ON POST, OR ANYTHING RELATED TO THE FACEBOOK GROUP, FACEBOOK PAGE, OR ANY OF SCANNER AND BLOTTER WEBSITES. You will be removed from the group. We want it to remain a respectable environment.
- If you have any issues report them. It will be addressed in some type or manner.
- DO NOT GO TO ANY LOCATIONS MENTIONED IN POSTS. YOU COULD HINDER EMERGENCY ACCESS TO THE PERSON WHO NEEDS HELP BY EMERGENCY PERSONNEL, GET HURT YOURSELF, OR BE KILLED. THESE LOCATIONS CAN BE DANGEROUS!
- If you have any issues with a post and feel that it needs to be taken down please contact anyone admin or moderator! The post will only be removed if it violates group policy. DO NOT EVER GO TO A PERSONS HOME OR SEND ANYONE TO THEIR PLACE OF RESIDENCE.
- Pictures and videos are encouraged. I mean, we all like to see what’s going on right? Let’s make sure that the pictures are as appropriate as possible. If there is a call about a naked person running down the street let’s not post that (inbox it, jk lol). But you get the point right? No deceased people either please. Make sure that the pictures don’t contain landmarks which could easily identify a person’s place of residence of the location of a serious crime offense.
- Do NOT attempt to use Scanner and Blotter Report as a place to warn people about police activity! For example: “The undercover police are sitting here and watching this house” is not acceptable. You will be banned.
- Any and all advertisements including for sale posts must go through the ADVERTISING page to be approved. This applies to any advertisements places or attempted to be placed on any Scanner and Blotter Report websites and/or social media pages, groups are included.
These are just current rules. As with everything else in life they are subject to change. They are only here to keep things running smoothly.
