    Well, I would hate to let my radio go to waste...

      Yes we are. Some guys have XFM or SIRUS Radio that they take with them on the road. I have an mp3 player that I run through the cars tape deck. I have seen guys watch movies on duty in thier cars, either on a lap top or a portable DVD player. Ive also seen guys with PSP's (Video Game) on duty. The movies and the PSP two will get you in deep if the boss catch's you.

        As long as it doesn't interfere with my 2-way radio.....but let me put it this way, I would hate to have an "open-mike follie" while rocking out!
        You have the right to remain silent, but apparently you lack the skill to exercise that right.

          Need the radio. Driving around with no noise is unnerving. Like D.O.D. Cop would hate to know everyone in my county knows I sing horribly

                Radio

                I have actually heard that some place(s) in the past removed the AM/FM broadcast radio from the squad car so as to not be a distraction from hearing the police radio. I think it may have been Saint Paul PD (MN). I sort of doubt that any agencies would do that nowadays, though.

                  Without Art and George Noory life just wouldn't be the same! Thank the gods for some of those callers, whenever I feel like life just sucks, one of those open line callers just lets me know how good I have it...

                    When I was new in the late 70's, my agency DID have the am/fm radios removed. I used to bring a transistor (do they still call them that?) with me usually to listen to the Dodger games. I had to use rubber bands to make it stay on the visor. Had some sgts. question it, but there was no rule against it. Finally, probably around 1990, they stopped removing the radios. It was a very big deal. When I went to motors, found a way to fasten a radio to it, too, then guys came up with all sorts of ways to get am/fm on their bikes.

                        As an investigator (instigator ???), our cars always had 'good time' radios. After a while, I could have the radio on, be involved in a conversation with someone in the car, and never miss my call sign on the first try. It's an aquired skill.

                          Yes we're allowed. I couldn't imagine driving without some background noise.
