Not a movie, but a recent episode of Blue Bloods on CBS featured a story line about scanners and interfering with police radio traffic.

I busted out the XMas movies early and was just watching Home Alone 3 and was thinking how funny it would be if someone with a Pro2006 picked up and was listening to the 4 spy people using their covert radios haha

Default The Flim Flam Man (1967)

A rural con artist and an army deserter cheat the townsfolk and are aided by a rich gal who shields the fleeing duo from the wrath of the pursuing sheriff. Starring George C. Scott, Harry Morgan, Slim Pickens, Albert Salmi, Jack Albertson and Michael Sarrazin. George C. Scott (the rural con artist) had some type of crystal-controlled receiver (maybe a Sonar) hidden in his glove box that allowed him to stay one step ahead of the law....

Default Casino (1995)

Joe Pesci and his gang of criminals use scanners in their backroom command post to keep tabs on all of the law enforcement in Vegas, and brag that some of their equipment is more sophisticated than what the cops use.

And speaking of Joe Pesci, his character in the "Public Eye" (who was based on the real life photographer Weegee) used a police radio in his car to respond to crime scenes to take photos. This was in a time period before scanners, but same idea.
