- Listen to feeds in the background. You can run other apps while listening to the police. Pause the feeds via the media controls on your device.

- Listen to feeds on your desktop/laptop computer. Email yourself a link to the feed, and open that link on your browser or with your favorite mp3 player.
- Ability to add custom feeds
- Chat with other users
- The web browser also automatically detects feeds and integrates it with the radio. Now you can add feeds from the web by simply tapping on the feed's link via our browser.
- Share feeds with your friends by email. They do not need to buy this app to listen with you. They can listen in with any device that has a web browser.
- Worldwide coverage. Listen to feeds from the United States, Canada, Australia and more. Our app is always expanding and looking for new police radios to tap into.
- List scanners by county. Don't just list all feeds in a state, get only the ones that are from your city/county.
- Integrated map that finds your location and the location of the feed. Now you can find where the action is happening and follow along.
- Built-in police/EMS/fire/military codes and phonetic alphabet for easy interpretation. Good for any beginners who do not have the proper training and have trouble remembering what the codes mean.
- Save your favorites to the front screen of the app for quick one-tap access.
- This app will dynamically grab a new list of sources so that you will always be the first to get any new police feeds out there.
- See the popularity of each feed. Each feed lists the number of listeners who are following the action along with you.
- Choose new skins or make your own. Skins can be any photo you choose from your photos library.
- New police feeds and others are added on an hourly basis, so keep checking if we added yours recently.
*Note: Our paid app called 5-0 Radio Pro adds even more feeds - Search for "5-0 Radio Pro Police Scanner" on iTunes to find it.
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.

I really like the app. I would give it 5 stars if my area wasn’t constantly “offline” I know it’s not the apps fault, but it does make me use it less.
I really love this app!! I was driving to an appointment the other day when the freeway came to a complete stop. I browsed the news websites and there was no mention. I used this app and found out that a tanker truck had overturned and freeway had to be cleared! I least I knew what was going on then.
Great app, use it all the time.
I usually use to see what’s going on in west Melbourne . Where I live
Great app thus far. I don’t live in the city limits but like to know what’s going on. Also, good for the times the stormy weather comes thru and their may be no electricity. I gave it 4 stars because I’m not able to pick up towns who use digital.
Iv had this app since it has came out. I tell everyone I know to download it. Recently I’m having connection issues, while using the satellite radio the app crashes and I have to reopen it. But it’s not a big deal until it starts to happen more and more often. iPhone xs max iOS 12.0.1. The app is still amazing. Just a tiny little mishap please adjust. Thanks
This used to be a good app, but now it hardly works for me, and when it does, it forces you to watch a bunch of ads...
It can help you know what is going on in your community
Excellent, keep you informed about what is going on in your area.
Not much good here in central Victoria when police have gone to a different frequency.. Can’t get anything now
I liked this app, but now that you got rid of the Gippsland police radio I’m deleting the app
This is one of the most reliable police scanner on the App Store and would suggest this to everyone who wants to listen in to the police
Looks great. But no voices heard
Great app legit always fun to listen when your bored haha
Excellent product to follow and pickup radio procedures for a new CFA member
With a name like “5/0 Radio Police Scanner” you’d think the app would actually pick up the police right, NO, no it doesn’t.
It’s a good app that is good to listen to when it’s summer time and want to listen to the fire department
GREAT APP. REALLY ENJOY IT
Quick and easy
