500 Channel Police Scanner – find out where all those cops cars are rushing to without leaving your living room

500 Channel Police Scannner

How would you like to get the news, before it’s news? If you’re the type of person that wants to be REALLY abreast of what emergency services are doing in your neighborhood, the 500 Channel Police Scanner will let you know what’s happening straight from the dispatch.

This scanner has up to 500 channels that can be used to listen to emergency and police broadcasts. These include fire/EMS, aircraft and even HAM radio and marine broadcasts. Depending on where you’re located and how large the population surrounding you is, this can provide a distraction pretty much anytime of the day. I imagine the target audience for this are retired service men, journalist, ambulance chasing lawyers, and paranoid folk.

It can also be used as a normal radio for listening to music and annoying morning disc jockeys. You can save your favorite channels to access via presets for quick and easy listening. It runs on batteries, three AA, so it’s great to have in your emergency kit in case of a power outage. At least you’ll be sure to have something to listen to. The 500 Channel Police Scanner is $129.95.


  • From the site, “Powered by AC adapter or three AA batteries”

    • Oops typo! Fixed :)

  • If it doesn’t do trunking, won’t be much good in major cities.

    • I’m not sure if it does or not but I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t. Seems like that would be needed to make this of any use and it’s not exactly cheap (not super duper expensive but it’s not a impulse buy either). I would question the company about that though, to be sure.
