The NYPD has plans to encrypt tens of thousands of police radios in 2020 — a development that would cut off news organizations from real-time information on crime, police involved shootings, and car crashes around the city.
 
If the plan goes forward, the NYPD would join other police organizations across the country — including the Port Authority Police Department and the Nassau County Police Department — and federal investigation agencies. 
 
Rumors had been swirling for some time that the radios would be encrypted. While attending a Dec. 12 press conference in Brooklyn, NYPD Assistant Chief Thomas Conforti of the Deputy Commissioner of Public Information’s office told amNewYork that “all police radios will be encrypted sometime in 2020, just like Nassau County, you won’t be able to hear anything.”
 
“There has been an influx of emerging technology in law enforcement communications which the NYPD is surveying. The Department’s prime focus remains ensuring public safety best practices and ongoing improvements,” added Sergeant Jessica McRorie, an NYPD spokesperson, in an email to amNewYork.
 
The NYPD is spending millions of dollars to shut down the radios to all listeners for “security and public safety reasons,” police officials privately said.

LOL I posted about this early in the year and all of the experts on RR called it "fake news". Even posted the actual NYPD memo that was issued out last year. But hey, what do I know, right???

Oh well - we will no longer be able to hear dispatchers screaming about open mics or hear 5 cars going to a "EDP" 10 year old child who doesnt want to go to school in the morning


But really even a unencrypted P25 system with perhaps just a few encrypted "high profile" channels would suit the NYPD just fine with the fake/stolen radios problems they have had in the past
Even if someone got a hold of a P25 radio with intent to mess with NYPD they would end up quite disappointed and many dollars short when dispatch bricks the radio

It sounds like they went over a few heads with this one - should be interesting...

Somewhere between 3 to 5 years was the answer that was posted on the r/r website that you also asked this same question and got this answer

Read the article I posted at the top of the thead.  The answer couldn't be any more easier to read. It's the subject line!

On a more serious note: It’s getting more and more tedious to enjoy the scanning hobby, what with everything moving in the direction of encryption.

We’re considering moving to FL late next year. When we do that I’ll probably give up the hobby altogether. From what I read there is virtually no unencrypted PD or FD to listen to in Florida, and buses & utilities aren’t gonna cut it for me.

Sites like RR are full of alarmists and crybabies who drone on and on about encryption this and encryption that. Yes, the reality is that encryption is here to stay, because it's very easy to enable as agencies and counties move to digital systems, and in some cases it's either very cheap or free (ADP algorithm in particular). And yes, live streaming is often the reason for it happening, or at least it's certainly a very convenient excuse.

But often the reality is not as dire as some make it out to be. There are plenty of P25 systems in Florida that have all Fire in the clear, and some even have *gasp* most Police talkgroups in the clear also! It totally depends on the area, so I would suggest taking a look at the RRDB to see what the reality is, and tune out the same dozen or so alarmists on RR who want everyone to believe that 100% encryption will be happening tomorrow.

Another thing to consider is we are in the age of mobile computers, almost everyone having a personal device of some sort , secure messaging apps and some municipalities/PD even issue phones to their officers so while some may argue that PD going encrypted keeps communities "in the dark" or hinder transparency which would allow police to operate in some sort of secrecy if they wish to do questionable operations - fact is that encrypted or otherwise - we most likely would not be hearing the "down and dirty" over routine radio traffic - or even tactical...

I havent heard anything about NYPD using any trunk systems yet aside from possibly having access to the Doit 700mhz system for mutual aid and whatnot
From what i understand they really want to hold on to their 470/480mhz channels for as long as possible
Its anyones guess at this point - time will tell...
