You don't state which local police you are looking for. Both those counties have law enforcement listed in their county listings. If you are talking about a feed, you are SOL until someone puts one up.

New PRO 106.Will not pick up city police.

Should I keep it or sale it I have been told you can not pick up city police because they went digital and you can not get the frequencies.Thanks

You'll want to use the Rebanded frequencies. The others will be phased out if they haven't been already.

The numbers below the frequencies are the Talkgroup ID's which you should be able to easily enter, you can find instructions online for your scanner model. Or better yet use a free program like Freescan. Software used depends on what scanner model you have.

I use Freescan & can import frequencies automatically from Radio Reference database with a single click.

It should be noted that FreeScan doesn't work with the object oriented scanners, but ARC500, Win500 and PSREdit500 all do. You can these links, and some additional information (both ARC500 and Win500 have user guides linked here) at this page...

Object Oriented Scanner Software - The RadioReference Wiki

All 3 can use the web service to download data, and I'm pretty sure they will set the custom table for rebanding if the system is already flagged for it.

best regards..Mike
