Police Scanner Review
Though many police departments have moved away from radio broadcasts, some of them use traditional methods to communicate. There are lots of apps allowing you to listen to police communications not only in your location but anywhere.
This Police Scanner by Logicord LLC is highly functional, so I decided to write this review to tell you about its benefits. But before you start reading further, note that possessing and using a police scanner is illegal in some places.
