Yeah, there are frequencies in the area of the band for assignment to the public safety agencies. Just because they are assignable doesn't mean you can hijack them for use whenever you want. You still have to obtain a license from the FCC for them and use a type accepted radio.

The biggest problem I have is there is a well known use of modified amateur radios being used by officers for tac channels. The admin knows this and does nothing.

From my understanding there has been offical complaints to uncle sam in the past but there isn't enough resources to enforce it.
