Below are some issues that have been reported, along with information about why the issues may occur, and things you may try to resolve the issue.
Due to the nature of this scanner feature on our website, there may be some issues that are beyond our control.
Issue: Low audio volume.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have a fix for this issue since the audio volume of the signals we receive varies throughout the day, and may also vary from different agencies.
Issue: The audio sounds like it is repeating.
This is usually resolved by refreshing the scanner page in your browser and pressing the play button again.
The cause of this is typically due to our scanner computer losing connection to our broadcast server or an update occurring.
Issue: No audio for an extended period of time.
At some times you may not hear any audio at all simply because there are no calls being dispatched. There is typically at least one call dispatched every 20 – 30 minutes in Calcasieu Parish even on “slow” days.
If you do not hear a call within 30 minutes of listening, try to refresh the scanner page on your browser and press the play button again. Also, make sure the volume is turned up on the device you are listening to. In some cases, there may be problems with our internet connection, or our scanner or broadcast server may be being updated or offline for other reasons.
