First Links

In celebration of my inaugural post, I have added two links to the right. The first is the most comprehensive frequency site I've ever encountered: Freqofnature.com. It's run by a guy named Tracy Justus up in Ventura County. Sometimes it has formatting problems if you're running Internet Exploder, but try to close your "Favorites" tab before you load the site. (or, alternatively, stop being retarded and download Mozilla's Firefox. Word.)

The second, is the LAPD's official site: lapd.org. It's actually pretty comprehensive, and the section on each division is worth checking out. Tons of detail on the department, and in each divison, it provides summaries of crime in the particular areas written by the divisons' Senior Lead Officers. The "SLOs" (pronounced SLOWS) are senior officers who are assigned to liasion with particular neighborhoods in each division. You wont be able to hear them called SLOs on the LAPD's radio traffic, but the LAPD's site identifies them by their unit identifier, so if you were really diligent, and really gave a shit, you could correlate the two.

Later, however, I'll devote an entire post to the LAPD's radio system and why I spent $600 to buy a new scanner just to hear them. And then I'll tell you about my love/hate relationship with the LAPD's scanner traffic.
