Yes that is the ones I want to listen to. So I need a digital scanner? How can I tell what ones are digital?

Night,
Here's a chart from the Wiki showing current model digital scanners. Not on this chart, but also digital scanners, are the Uniden BCD396T & BCD996T. These were replaced by the 396XT & 996XT respectively, which are on the chart.

I see that site 2-020, Farmington in Fulton County in that district (14) uses some 700mhz frequencies. That rules out a Pro-96 or Pro-2096. They won't trunk track in that frequency range.

The site, or sites, that you want to select, are the ones closest to you, that you'd be most likely to receive, from where you live, work, or the area you travel in most often.

In the database it is listed under Mode
D=digital A=analog
Your scanner will pick up anything analog as long as your in range of it.
