What is the best mid-prices police scanner I can get? I know NOTHING about them!?
I want to get a police scanner/radio for my boyfriend for Christmas, but I have no idea what all the different models are. He just wants to get the 411 about car accidents, etc. I'm hoping to spend $100-$200, but not sure if this is realistic. Any help is greatly appreciated!

HI! Go to Radio Shack and you'll get all the advise and question's you might have. There are hand held that take batteries or you can get rechargeable batteries along with a charger or ones that plug into a wall socket They also have a line of Desktop models.Be sure to get a book with all the codes that you can program into the scanner which are codes that Police , Fire departments and emergency services use. I've had one for years it works great.That would be a great gift for him.I'm sure he will enjoy. LOTS OF LUCK. [ I do not work for Radio Shack]Source(s): .
