Use of Radio by the State for Operational Coordination

When employees of the state use radio communications to coordinate domestic law enforcement and emergency response (medical, roadway, fire, etc), cryptographically strong privacy measures can be used only on those portions of the communications which identify specific suspected prepetrators and victims by name, or by other uniquely identifying information (principally, though not exclusively, residential address).   Such measures must be used under such circumstances.   Rough physical descriptions of suspected perpetrators, identification of the area of activity not uniquely identifying the residence or vehicle of a suspected perpetrator, and a specific description of the activity (form and extent of an accident or emergency, type and details of suspected or confirmed unlawful activity, etc.) must be transmitted, and must be transmitted in unencrypted form.
