Racial Slurs Heard on Chicago Police Radio May Have Come from Unauthorized, Not Police-Owned Radio

Racial slurs recorded from a Chicago Police Department's radio frequency on March 14, 2016 may have come from a source outside the department, according to the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communications.

A clip of the audio also revealed the audio and was posted on the Twitter account.

The offensive transmission was not followed by the MDC chirp or quack that accompanies authorized radios and is appended at the end of a voice transmission. The MDC is data that provides the dispatch console with a signature from the radio that is transmitting.
