Are these frequencies 800mhz? If so, that's why you are getting the error. That scanner only covers up to 512mhz.

Looks like the County is on a trunked system so you won't be able to listen to them with that scanner. The frequencies for Montville Township appear to be conventional UHF so you should be able to listen to them. Looks like the police dispatch uses APCO-25 digital so you won't be able to hear them, even though your scanner will pick up the frequency. To get everything in the county, you will need a digital scanner.

This question would be better off in the New Jersey forum, you would get better answers there. Maybe a moderator/admin could move it there.
