Does anyone know of a police radio scanner app or internet progam that covers Everett? I have purchased a few but none have Everett. I constantly hear the sirens and know there a lot of crime here that is being covered up and as an Everett citizen I believe I have the right to know what is going on in my city as we all do. Thank you.

I totally agree. I think a lot is being covered up and I never hear of anything that is going on. I tried looking for apps too but couldn't seem to find any. Your best bet is to buy just a regular scanner ma'am, I may try to look for one too!

I think the cops are using cell phones for the bigger crimes, this way nobody hears anything.
#5 Jan 15, 2013
You are right, they use their phones when they don't want everyone to hear.

I heard that the cops are covering up a secret alien ufo base that exist somewhere in the city. That these aliens are conducting brain removal experiments on many local government officials and that thier sinister agenda is being led by no other than Bonnie Lemay and her family of superior genetic clones.. Be afraid ... Be very afraid..

looks like they already got to you

It does not matter if you have a scanner. When something big is going on, they switch to hand helds.

Apparently, You have no idea what the hell you are talking about. You have no idea how radios works.

Aparantly you guys know things I don't and I work there! They do not use hand helds when they don't want you to hear. What happens in the city happen on the radio. Officer safety dictates that every officer hear what is going on in order to properly respond to protect YOU! Every siren is not major crime, there are Fire trucks and ambulances going too.

As Malden turns is just some guy named Mike and his mother that sit home and just listen to a scanner all day long, and report it on facebook.

My neighbor has a scanner and has told me a lot of useful information. Yes your best bet is to purchase a programmable scanner and enter the frequencies that you are interested in. You can program Everett police, fire, roads(which is useful in winter time to hear what roads are plowed),Everett Public Schools, MBTA for those of you that ride the T and many more useful frequencies. You can get this list on line. Make sure the scanner has the correct frequency range for what you want to listen to as some are only programed for aircraft or marine frequencies. A good scanner will cost you about $200 to $300 dollars. Not many places sell them now so you would have to look around. Radio Shack is probably a good place to look.Happy listening.

Sharon needs to get out more.

Mind your own business!

Not all people with police scanners are sitting there listening every second.I know a few people who have them. I've had one for years and don't use it all the tme but I do put it on when somthing seems to be happening.How else are we going to find out anything? The 3 papers don't report half of what is going on.

If someone goes out to get a scanner make sure it does Frequency Trunking.
Frequency Trunking is where a police dept will use a block of frequency's say 850mhz to 900mhz and their transmission will constantly scan that block for transmit and receive. You will not be able to monitor any trunking freqs with a regular scanner. A lot of police and fire dept have moved to this trunking deal.
All the State Police have move to this and you will not be able to receive them if you have a regular scanner.
So keep this in mind when buying as cities are always upgrading and it will be the this system.
Here is a handheld scanner that will do the trunking and works very well.
