Over Scanner Traffic . . .

Timestamps are approximately when our team remembered hearing it.

All traffic is fluid and subject to correction at any time.

A new scanner is being ordered to improve our signal to the public. Thank you to Siegfried Consulting LLC for their generous donation.

Traffic should not be considered news until further information is confirmed.

Scanner Traffic = exactly what they say over their radios with dispatch and each other.

Not sure what happened but they are directing traffic outside of Target on the highway. I don’t see her accident or anything though.

Scanner Traffic indicated police communicating about what intersection each one of them would cover.

11:26 am – known male trespassing East Overland Dollar General. On trespass log.

All parties remain innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

3:02 pm – Sage St approx 18 year old in a vehicle with throat slit. Police on scene, EMS enroute.

3:13 pmjust heard another call from dispatch about another female slumped over the wheel, possible child inside vehicle as well. Valley en route. Badly Bent Bar

Let’s take a break from that to say Happy Mother’s Day from Scottsbluff Main Street Market!

We appreciate all our patrons. Happy Mother’s Day from Scottsbluff Main Street Market!

3:16 pm – Terrytown comand for unresponsive female, but female is fine.

She stated she pulled into the bar parking lot when she ran out of gas.

3:17 pm – Terrytown canceled. Back in service.

THIS is an example of how important it is to KNOW the DIFFERENCE between Scanner Traffic and News Reporting.

The caller THOUGHT the female was unresponsive and reported it, so it goes over the scanner. That does not make it true. It is SCANNER TRAFFIC prompting further investigation.

More times than not, the initial report is not true at all. Please – DO NOT blame us for your inability to recognize the difference.

We followed this call for nearly an hour, and nothing could be located. Alarm company had wrong address in database, and crews could not find any apparent sign of the smoke and fire that was reported.
