You are going to be better off with a digital scanner as others have stated. St. Charles City and the Sheriffs office are both digital. There are rumors of a county wide digital system in the works, but not sure if/when it will be on line.

Either a Uniden 396, GRE PSR-500 or the Radio Shack Pro-106 will be your options. All three have their pros and cons, and I personally dont think any of them are better than the other. I have the 396 and it performs very well monitoring the St. Charles area digital systems.
