There appears to be two issues. First is that the St. Landry Parish is on a "Trunked" Radio system. The Scanner you have does not work on Trunked radio systems. You can program each of those frequencies in and see if you hear any traffic but you will only hear parts of the communication. This makes it very difficult to follow.

Secondly, there are some conventional frequencies listed for Opelusa but I am afraid that it looks like they may be using the trunked system now.

I would suggest you look into getting the next tier up in scanners which is a "Trunk tracker" These run about 200 - 300 Dollars. (I would suggest the BC246T or BC330T) Beyond that is a tier of scanner that also track digital system these run between 400 - 500 Dollars.(I would suggest the BCD396T) I own this one and am very happy with it. Here is a link to a great online retailer for scanners. they will be very helpful and also offer programming which might be very helpful to you.

Can I hear police on the scanner?


That will depend entirely on your location. While police and other service agencies formerly used basic, simplex radio systems, many have changed to modern trunking systems, some with digital transmissions. The BC92XLT is fine for the simplex, but is not capable of following trunked systems or receiving digital signals.

Sorry, but there is no way to "unlock" or modify the frequency coverage of the BC92XLT or any other recently-manufactured scanner. Your only option is to purchase a scanner designed to include the frequency range that you are after. If you don't already have it, you can download and print the operating instructions for your scanner here:
