The question — nobody knew that the shooter had left the school, so officers needed to go in. One of the things that we have heard — and I don’t know if this is true or not — I can — hope you can shed light on it — is that there might have been a stand-down order, somebody on the radio telling Broward deputies not to enter this school until a SWAT team arrived.
What can you tell us about that?
ISRAEL: I can’t tell you anything about that. I haven’t heard that.
Although there has been talk of a stand-down order, with deputies told to remain outside until SWAT arrived, Israel said he didn’t know of one.

Is anyone a PAID subscriber to Broadcastify?
You can download the actual radio transmissions from that day.
More reason they want to go digital which would force people to upgrade to expensive ICOM-brand radios like police use.
If your local PD uses ICOM units, at a huge cost to taxpayers, another ICOM unit can decode the encryption.
I am sure once sales of scanners soar, they will change that.
Most ICOM units are more than scanners, allowing you to talk to police in theory, but you can bet they would triangulate a location quickly.
