Welcome to the Radio Reference Forums
What you need to do is to enter the frequencies just like you would with an analog scanner. The next step would be to enter the squelch tone. If you move your computer mouse over the blue titles, you will get more information about things such as squelch tones, frequencies, etc. You can create alpha tags on your scanner. The ones shown are suggestions. You can create one saying what ever you want. The purpose of alpha tags is so that you know who is talking at a particular time. When you get to the frequency that uses P25 (Sheriff Jail) enter it like a normal frequency, but when you select the squelch tone, choose P25 and enter 378. Here's the database page for the county you live in.Marathon County, Wisconsin (WI) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

Did you enable any Scan Lists? For example, try pressing the "1" key to enable Scan List 1, and see if that helps. And, welcome to Radio Reference!
