Product Description
Police Radio
Check in on your locality

Listen in on Police and Emergency Services broadcasts no matter where you are with Police Radio for Android. Police Radio lets you tune in to broadcasts in different counties, states, and even foreign countries. Find out what's causing the freeway traffic jam, or why the cops are outside your neighbor's house. It's like having a police scanner in your pocket.

Keep Tabs On Your Neighborhood
Police Radio
Translate police lingo

Police Radio makes it easy to zero in to your location using Find Channels. Simply select your state and county, and a list of available channels will load. Select a channel to add it to your presets and listen to the broadcast (note that some channels may be offline, and some online channels may be dormant). You can pause the current broadcast, and a handy Clear Presets function lets you start fresh and add new channels.

Check In On Switzerland, Chile, Japan, and Elsewhere

If you want explore the world beyond your neighborhood, experiment by tuning in broadcasts from different counties or states, or for the truly adventurous (and multi-lingual), sample broadcasts from other countries, including Australia, Chile, Italy, Japan, German, and Switzerland.

Learn the Codes

Police Radio has a convenient section that lists many of the Emergency Services codes that you are likely to hear as you listen to the broadcasts, such as "187" (homicide) or "211" (armed robbery). Codes are broken up in to five categories: -37 Police Codes, 0 Police Codes, 1 Police Codes, General Police Codes, and Medical/Fire Codes.

This app advertises that you can get any town...you cannot. There are only a few towns in my area on this app...total false advertising.

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS APP IS A SCAM. December 5, 2012
By AL-B
Sure it's only a buck but like the other reviewers, I could not get this app to start. All I get is an icon that looks like an electrical outlet with the words "Police Radio..." beside it.

I'm guessing that this is all there really is to this so-called "app," and it's actually just a scam.

This and others are only for you if you live in a very large city, It only had 2 sites in my whole state, Neither of them were close enough to me to be of any value.
