Research this in the Wiki - For the Uniden and RS line, at least, each scanner has its own article, and most times, the capabilities of each are listed, including if a scanner can handle CTCSS - also more commonly referred to as PL (Private Line - a Moto term) and DCS. If it's not mentioned, check out the 'reviews' links, as sometimes it's mentioned there.

Also see this handy Uniden chart, from our Wiki...

Just hit the word 'Wiki' in the blue toolbar, and scroll down for the list on the right hand side. 73s Mike

I have a BC 898T and it has CTCSS or PL and DPL capabilities. Its okay for conventional freqs, but I was warned that you need alpha numeric tags to ID trunk system users. They, of course, were correct.
