Just a personal thought. After spending many years in communications, security and such, I am convinced that there are some things that the general public has absolutely no need to know! Just my 2 cents!!

Our officers go to their cell phones when things get so risky.

That sounds like a huge training issue. Not a problem with encryption.
Most people who demand things to be in the clear seem to have some issues with authority. They are also the same people who say things like "I pay your salary" or "the taxpayers MUST be able to hear the police." They also spout off bout conspiracy theories about their local police.
The officers need encryption for secure communications. There are all sorts of reasons why for example the following things are common over the air:
-victim info (sexual/Juvenile/domestic violence)
-NCIC (CJIS protected)
-Key holder info
-Suspect names (NOT proven convicted people)
-Officer to officer discussions (trying to figure out options/enforcement)
This goes on. These guys are being attacked on a regular basis. The least we can do is give them secure comms which is dirt cheap and included in just about every radio off the shelf nowadays.
Also, question why you hold grudges with your local police and think they owe you something.
