Portable police scanners, also known as police radios, can be used in the home, in the car, or even while you’re walking around town. Portable scanners run on batteries, but most come with AC adapters that allow you to run them without batteries while plugged into the wall.

The low-end handheld scanners (generally priced around $100) do not offer trunking or digital capabilities, which may limit your access to frequencies in many areas. A new class of portables, called pre-programmed scanners, can be used right out of the box, but cannot be customized to exactly fit your needs. Explore below for handheld police scanner reviews and in-depth product details.

Scanner Masters offers a programming service for police radios that will install the latest firmware and frequencies, all customized to your area. Check policescanners.net or call 1-800-SCANNER to check what type of scanner is required for the region in which the scanner will be used.
