Important Notes about Alabama:

The Alabama Department of Public Safety and Highway Patrol operate primarily a VHF high-band conventional radio system which can be monitored on any scanner including basic low-end models. However, in the Montgomery area the Highway Patrol operates in part on the regional EDACS trunking radio system which will require a trunking scanner to monitor. Most other Alabama state agency communications are on conventional radio systems as well.

Important Notes about Etowah County:

The city of Gadsden and Atalia Police, Fire and EMS uses an EDACS Standard trunking system. An analog trunking police scanner would be needed to monitor this community, but they are slowly switching over to a digital system.
The rest of Etowah County, Alabama, uses conventional analog police and fire radio communications systems. If you don't wish to monitor the city of Gadsden any police scanner would work, from low-end to high-end models.
