You will need the proper cables and/or adapters to connect to your scanner as this has F connectors on it.

Other than that I have had pretty good luck with TV amplifiers, they cover a smilar frequency range. Be aware that you could overload the scanner with this much amplification and that amps will work much better at the antenna than at the radio.

I have used the below for years, Works great and I found some F to BNC cables somewhere years ago that work great, I have 8 scanners running off it and no issues

How could I avoid overloading my scanner and will that damage it?

It would not cause damage to the radio but could cause distortion and otherwise poor performance. You can use the gain control to get the best quality signal, which might not always be the one with the highest meter reading.
