'Scotts Bluff County Scanner' is a private, volunteer, community service organization established in 2009 by Brian Hale at Hale Multimedia and is NOT associated with any government agency. Our mission has always been to keep the public informed in a safe manner while holding our government officials accountable. Our focus of reporting is on 5 areas; Police and Crime, Fire and Rescue, Severe Weather, Missing Persons and Community Safety Alerts.
What we do;
+ Our live scanner feed is managed by Kenny Smith through our re-broadcast license with our partners at Broadcastify, the official streaming company for all scanner radios across the U.S.
+ Our multiple social media accounts on facebook, instagram, and twitter updated primarily by our Social Media Manager, JoAnn Paramo, assisted by Brian Hale.
+ Our news blog, podcast, and company website are maintained by Brian Hale, as well as all the business aspects of managing our volunteer organization.
+ Our merchandise store was developed and maintained by Andi Hale.
If you would like to DONATE to the cause of keeping the scanner online and sounding good, please consider a donation of any amount. We accept Credit/Debit Cards, as well as Google Pay, Apple Pay and Square Pay.
Another option is a direct donation via Venmo to @scannerman - or you may also make a check out to our Treasurer, Kenny Smith, 935 10th St, Gering, NE 69341.
Our goal has always been to contribute to the community in a positive way. We are not doing this to entertain or appease anyone in particular. We DO NOT have a hidden agenda. We are simply a group of volunteers providing a live source of information that flows very quickly.
It IS ACCEPTABLE to point out important errors or omissions, so as to serve the community with the most accurate and timely information.
It is NOT ACCEPTABLE to attack, or make our admins feel attacked, by using words that are not edifying, and are in no positive way contributing to the betterment of our community. Contribute, don't criticize.
It is our policy, at the discretion of our volunteer admins, that anyone found badgering, criticizing or otherwise trolling can, and will be, blocked from being able to access our social media feeds.
Repeated or serious offenders may also have their ip address blocked from being able to access our website and potentially other streaming options through our broadcast partners.
Please understand that Hale Multimedia is the signal provider for the ONLY streaming feed available online for SBCO, so if you lose this privilege you would have to purchase a physical scanner (averaging $300+) to be able to listen to the live signal.
If you find yourself blocked, you may file an appeal below or by emailing email@example.com
