You can listen to trunked police bands UNLESS: 1 they went Digital and your scanner is Analog. 2. They use an encrypted control frequency. 3. It is not against the law in your area. 4. you have a Trunked scanner. Following trunked frequencies requires a trunked scanner which is very different from regular everyday scanners. If the photo of your scanner is accurate then it appears you have Digital capability so that won't be a problem. You can go to Radio shack and purchase a book on Public Safety frequencies and Control Frequencies which will give you the proper frequency range but they will tell you nothing about Encryption on any Frequency. If you can not find a Control Frequency then you will not be able to track the hoping that is used in a trunked system. By the way, a Regular scanner runs about $50 where as a Trunked Scanner runs $150 to $200.

SOURCE: How do i reset my
To reset the BC72XLT:
- Power the scanner OFF.
- Press and hold the 2, 9, and HOLD keys while powering the scanner ON.
After about 3 seconds the word CLEAr will show on the display.
The above will delete/erase all of your programmed data. If you don't want to lose everything, you can just program 0.0 (zero decimal zero) in place of each unwanted frequency. That will clear those channels and they will be skipped during SCAN.
