Now, this I have to disagree with.  Public monitoring of police
communications is a form of public review.  As such, it helps to keep
the police 'honest', to a degree, by knowing that they can and are
being listened to.  It _IS your business (and your civic duty) to know
what your police are up to.  This may or may not include listening to
them on a scanner.

By the same token, bringing the discussion of telecommand security out
into the open may force TPTB to have a serious look at what they are
(or are not) doing to keep things secure.  Let's 'keep them honest'.
