How to Monitor Police Frequencies Online

Monitoring police frequencies online can be an exciting and useful way to get information about an breaking news event in your area. Instead of relying on tomorrow's newspaper for information about why police are blocking off a certain street or have surrounded a house, you can now jump online and listen to the police scanner frequencies yourself. Keep in mind that some police departments have yet to allow this to happen so you are out of luck if you wanted to listen to them do their work.
