Your post is very hard to read and understand. Need punctuation, not run-on sentences.
Assuming you are saying you are not hearing Freeport Police anymore.
Online scanner having static doesn't mean anything about the police radios, just could be a bad hookup at the scanner and computer.
Now, after all that, do you have a digital radio that has been listening to STARCOM21, the Illinois statewide digital system?
According the the Stephenson County page:
Stephenson County, Illinois (IL) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference
May 2010 - Freeport PD and Stephenson County Sheriff now using Starcom21
They have been using this system for 2 years.
So what is it that your NOT hearing? what system/frequency?
Freeport IL police have pulled a fast one for some damn reason. I can't pick them up (hear them) home or online anymore. I don't know if they went tac or what, but they're gone. But, i only have one of those cheap car window mounts up on roof. I plan to get better if i can ever afford it. LOL, anyway they're gone -- used to get on home now blank, just fire and county and online scanner is just static not even county or fire, beats me!
