Over and out? NYPD radio encryption could obliterate various NYC news operations


The Citizen app, fed in part through information obtained via NYPD radios, connects more than two million New Yorkers, allowing them to monitor incidents citywide in real-time.

Among those who rely upon police information fed through the Citizen app are volunteer violence interrupters. They learn where crime occurs, then head to the scene so they can help comfort those affected and quell any further acts of aggression in the community.
