Berkeley Police and Fire

The feed you are listening to is a realtime (ok, about 30 seconds-delayed) digital broadcast of the Berkeley Police and Fire departments. Berkeley's first responders are part of the East Bay Regional Communications System (EBRCS), a P25-compliant communications consortium serving the public agencies of Contra Costa and Alameda counties within the San Francisco Bay Area.

I had some free time, extra hardware, and a desire to learn Linux programming on a Raspberry Pi - I integrated all the components, programmed the RasPi, and am streaming out the feed to Broadcastify.com.

The feed is available on a number of platforms: this website, Broadcastify.com, iOS & Android (via many of the free scanner apps), and a host of others.

Please see the Raspberry Pi page for technical details on how I established this feed.
