Wouldn’t it be nice if…..

Have you ever heard a lot of sirens, not too far away, and wondered “what the heck is going on?”

That is basically the thought behind KokomoScanner. We are not a news agency and don’t want to be one. WE post breaking incidents as they happen, as they’re dispatched. As a general rule we do not investigate or dig for facts. WE Post breaking incidents and update when we are able to. Not all calls end up being what they were sent out as, so do not use our service as a news source. The shots fired call we posted may have just been the trashman banging the dumpster, which it usually is. We are not a police or law enforcement monitoring service and are very very Pro Public Safety. We are in no way affiliated with any government or official agency in Kokomo or Howard County. We have no official direct communication with any agency or entity in Kokomo / Howard County. Please use our Social Media Pages for entertainment only! Things are not always the way we hear them, some of it is just guess work, and some of it has been known to be wrong. If you feel or know we’ve made an error please contact us and let us know, and we will edit if possible or remove the post. Thank you and God bless.

My thoughts about the comments made of the radio system and the incident at the courthouse.

In regards to some of the comments being made about the radio system and the incident at the courthouse on Monday, I’m going to make an observation and I make it with some level of understanding. The (orange panic button) on these radios is used for when an officer is in distress… NOT for when he’s on an assault he’s dealing with. From what I’ve heard and what I’ve been told there was no reason for an officer to push his emergency on his radio. Court Officers were notified of the disturbance, responded and dealt with it and in a most expeditious manor. If I’m in a fight and can’t talk on the radio I push the panic button. If I’m being sent to a fight between other people, I don’t push my button. I get on the radio and ask for assistance. I am also very critical of this radio system, but in this case it was not the issue. The only issue I would take is the sheriff’s department had declared a signal 100 for an incident that was occurring in the county and the main radio channel was to be silent.. When the bailiffs switched over to the main channel they did not know it. But it DID NOT effect the response in any way.. In my honest opinion, anytime an officer needs to declare a signal 100 for clearing a building or a car they should go to “Channel 2” in case another incident kicks off of greater importance. The same thing happened the other night when a KPD officer declared a signal 100 for an Open Door while there was a gas station attack going on… which restricted officers from talking. An HCSD officer arrived on scene first and initiated a foot chase with the suspect, but dispatch couldn’t tell the other responding KPD officers because they were on a silent Channel. The dispatcher tried to advise the responding officers on channel 2, but they weren’t currently scanning it… But that’s a director problem that also needs addressed.
