It is legal in most countries to listen to police feeds. However, it is illegal in some places to use this app to aid in the commission of a crime or to pose as a police officer when you are not. It may also be illegal to use it while driving. Please consult your local laws before using this app outside of your home.
Is it fake?
It's very real. Each feed comes from a person in that region with an expensive police scanner sharing the signal with you via the internet.
The delay between the real radio feed and this app is only a few seconds depending on buffering and internet speeds.

Ratings and Reviews
I am three thousand three hundred miles away. I enjoy listening.
Scanner app from I-Tunes
I think this is a great app, a lot of time can be spent looking for the right kind of channels that you would like to listen too, cos a lot of channels are obsolete or turned of some of the time, but once you know a few, you can tune in, in time to what u like or want to listen too. I'm thinking I want to get a licence / codename so I can talk back in conversations myself! It's a great way for communications !
Are you sure?
I'm a 12 hour flight away from Colorado and yet this app can scan it live? I think it's a fake unless the author actually tells me how he does it.
