Thanks Paragould!!!!!

Good job of going to a police radio system to keep the public from hearing any police communication about a funnel cloud or a tornado touching the ground.

Yeah, in trying to keep your communications secret you have cut off one source my family has ALWAYS used when we here sirens.

You could have went with ANY digital frequency radio system that a person could have monitored with a digital scanner but NO!

There are a lot of elderly residents that monitored it also.

Thank you mayor.

Scanners are not for weather. It is for police communication. Use radio, television, and weather radios (the problem was fixed earlier today)

If your family member was an officer in town you should THANK the mayor for going digital so that the drug using scum whowould be listening the scanners and knowing when the officers were on their way.

I love seeing the police officers reading topix to post their own comments. Hilarious.

Please tell me the last time Paragould PD conducted a drug raid??? That's the funniest part!

You guys hide your incompetence by refusing to join the rest of the world with dash cams. Now you don't want anyone listening at night to hear your lack of action on the radio. What do you have to hide??? Incompetency.

If you were actually proactive then wouldn't you want the public to hear? And if your dumb enough to get on your radio to announce one of these imaginary raids you mentioned then you deserve to be heard.

Your comment is absurd.

HaHaHa. Yeah that would solve our incompetency problem we have in Paragould wouldn't it.

Way to respond. Goobs?? How old are you?

Can't wait for your next childish comments. You've got some good ideas. My you're taking this quite personal. Wonder why??

guess your forgetting that the sheriff an police station communicated about tr movement of funel clouds over the scanner, but no biggie I'm sure between the Internet, amazon, and the FCC having to produce the scanner codes I'm sure I won't have this problem much longer. Oh an last nights storms the weather radio's were down according to kait8, so yeah I like having the scanner available during weather season.
