Search for 'police' in Find Stations and you'll get a list of 34 entries.

Must be the aural equivalent of watching paint dry.

Due to it being against the law to listen to the UK Emergency services, and for that matter, any transmission you are not licensed to use, you will find no Internet streams. This is quite apart from the fact that their transmissions are digital now and cannot be listened to direct.
I cannot imagine a country that would be stupid enough to let criminals have the edge by monitoring police activities.

Well, I am fairly busy at the moment, I have just painted a wall, and it will probably take all day to watch it dry at this time of year.

Did you use this paint or do you not suffer from wifi-noisy neighbours?

Well found Paul. It confirms what all Radio Amateurs know. By law, the public can listen to us, CB, Standard broadcast stations and weather forecast transmissions, and nothing else legally without being licensed for that band.

here in the usa you can listen to just about anything although you can't listen to FBI CIA or Secret Service transmissions..even with the police scanners every time a cop is after a suspect or if they are at a major crime scene they do a lot of the talking via cell phones so they don't give an edge to criminals..

The Tetra digital radios that the UK Police use, have Digital Cellphone facility built in, so that the public or anyone else can contact their local beat Bobby. They also have GPS built in so their bosses can keep track of them.

damn now that is high tech!!! pretty soon all cars will have this kinda feature to track down stolen cars or find criminals.the bad side of that coin is that will allow a stalker who is computer savvy to keep tabs on the person he or she is stalking..kinda scary!!
