  • The po-po scanner

    Hey guys.

    I got a $150 scanner for 5 bucks at a yard sale, score.

    I want to get it in my truck - I love stuff like this and it could be useful, it has weather and etc. functions. And im super stoked about listening to everything.

    From what I have found it is not illegal to have one in your vehicle in GA as long as you comply with the rules about not tapping encoded or cell phones, etc.

    Is this correct? I want to make sure before I dont get hired to a PD because I got a citation for this.

    Thanks.

    Umm, I'm not sure what the question is but if you become a cop you'll learn to turn it off. I don't even want to look at a radio when I'm off duty let alone scan. I love my job but if you don't take a break you burn out.

    I can understand your being excited and wanting to hear everything now. Use it as a tool to learn your 10 codes.

    It's not illegal to scan.

      I've found that most houses in a certain neighborhood have scanners... Which is really awesome when we don't have secure radios and must call out location.

      to the OP your fine about having a scanner. but it might open the eyes of an officer that stopped you. I tend to link criminal activity or old people with scanner use.

          Thanks guys.

          Im actually kind of surprised how casual and whatever the radio is. And how often people cannot understand each other. Its cool to see how part of the machine works.

          Hopefully I dont get pulled over anytime soon. And if it ever does raise suspicion, ill dump the mountain of applications outta my book bag. Slowly of course, lol.
