Nosy Cops: Exposing the Hidden Potential of Police Radio
As distributed radio systems have matured, they have opened up OSINT possibilities far beyond simply listening to voice transmissions. This session will provide a brief overview of how modern radio systems work, what additional data is up for grabs, and walk through exactly what's needed to add this untapped resource to your own area - including how to use a $30 software defined radio to get better functionality than a $700 scanner. Multiple demos and stories from over three years of 24/7 coverage in the Atlanta metro area will illuminate how real-world applications of this data and these techniques can help uncover corruption and keep people safe when public safety officials overstep their bounds.
