I get quite a few requests from people asking for police scanner recommendations. This is a tough one to answer but I will always suggest to never skimp as you get what you pay for. You can easily get a scanner for around $100 but you lose helpful functions such as being able to name frequencies with a Alpa Tagging, CTCSS tones to prevent interference, signal meters, and computer programming capabilities.

* Please Note:  GRE ceased scanner production and are now produced by Whistler.
