First, make sure that you have the correct frequency for your local police. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area by visiting:

Program the frequency or frequencies using the instructions in the scanner's operating manual. and you should be all set. If you need the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

NOTE: If the frequency database shows that your local police are using a trunked system, you will not be able to monitor them using the BC60XLT-1. Trunked systems require a trunking scanner. Many law enforcement agencies are also using digital systems for their communications. If that's the case in your area you'll need a scanner capable of monitoring APCO-25 digital transmissions.

Hello I have a RadioShack police scanner with frequencies on it I have had it for 5 years noe all of a sudden I ain't receiving any action and my squelch

The police and or fire department may have gone digital. an analog scanner will not pick that up. Often departments will switch their frequencies so the "bad guys" cannot listen in. They forget many of us "good guys" listen and can aid them.
Does the squelch make noise if you turn it all the way to open? Then you know the scanner is working.

How can i block the police from lisening on my nokia 5130

There's really no way to block the 'police' from listening to your phone.
They can do whatever they want with a warrant, or without, depending on your country.

How can i install a police scaner aplication on palm trewo800

Police radios use a specific radio frequency. It is not possible for your Palm Treo to listen in to this frequency without specialized hardware to pick it up. Also the legality of police scanners varies by state and city, so please check the legality of these items first.
