Welcome !Can anyone explain why canton IL police department won’t come through on my scanner?
The scanner I am using uniden BC125AT.Welcome !
What model scanner do you have?
If you are trying to receive the statewide STARCOM system, you'll need a Phase II scanner.

Is this it?
It is uniden BC125AT, so I have canton police programmed in. All of the other stuff programmed in for Fulton county comes in and I can hear. Canton Police dep is quite and I can’t hear anything.Hi & welcome to the RR forums!
Numerous possibilities here. Can you elaborate on "won't come through"? Perhaps provide a video clip of what your scanner is or isn't doing? For starters you never specified what scanner you are using, this info would be quite helpful for us to help you. If using a Uniden scanner you'll want to make sure the "Law Dispatch" service type is enabled. Are you able to hear non-Canton police traffic (anything else) on the system? I'm seeing numerous simulcast cells on that system but looks like none of them are in Fulton County, so I can't rule out for sure if simulcast distortion could be a factor.
