With the distant services still coming in, it's probable that your local agencies have changed from single-frequency operations to a trunked system or, if already trunked, that frequency/user assignments have been updated within the system.

My scanner no longer scans the local police and sheriff frequencies. It will only scan the next county sheriff frequencies. It was originally programmed to scan Omaha police and Douglas Co. sheriff.


It's possible that your county services have switched to a trunking system, leaving you with nothing but "dead" frequencies. To check the frequencies and systems that are currently in use in your area, visit:

I need local police and fire frequncies how do i get them free


Try contacting your local law enforcement agency, they will usually be happy enough to send you a list for your county - however there are frequency numbers that are private and not ment to be 'scanned' by us regular folks. Your local newpaper or TV station may have the list on the website. All the other frequency numbers i know of i got out of my book - which btw was well worth the $10 becausee it gave me EVERY agency broadcasting : fire, sheriff, state police troops A-F, courthouse, etc. You can try letting your scanner do the work and have it scan for frequencies and store those that you find and dump the ones you dont like later, but if your going to do it that way let your scanner scan for a week or so - some frequencies dont get used very much. If your town/city has a website the local frequencies should also be listed there. Good Luck

Scanner not picking up local police-Fire freq


Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.

Police scanner that doesnt get police signal anymore


They may have switched over to the trunk system, so the regular freqs wont work anymore. All city police departments are switching over, fed requirement.

Pro-2096 won't pick up local police


if you live out far from town you may live to far to pick it up. I have this problem because i live out of city. I can go to my mothers and she lives in town and she picks them up fine. I also know that a few months ago all frequencys went digital and some of my # had to be changed.

The Older model Scanners can. The newer Models can only intercept Local traffic and not Private Police Bands.
