First, welcome to Radio Reference. You will find this site very helpful.

You might want to ask about the system in the Ohio State forum. Localized questions are always better asked where people are familiar with the area you live in. :)

If you have the Ohio MARCS P-25 digital system programmed in, the 97 will not be able to follow the CC's. This applies to your police and fire.

You don't say what system you are trying to monitor.

The PRO-97 is old technology and it does not support rebanded analog trunked systems. It also will not decode digital systems.

Both of the Ohio MARCS systems are digital, Chillicothe has already switched to MARCS, and I believe Ross County is in the process of switching to MARCS as the have applied for a grant.

County finally unified in radio system pursuit

Looks like it is time to upgrade to a modern digital scanner.
