Garland County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
Arkansas has built AWIN, the Arkansas Wireless Information Network radio system used by the Arkansas State Police and other county, local and state agencies. This is a Motorola APCO-25 digital trunking radio system that requires a digital scanner to monitor. Our general recommendation is that the best Arkansas scanner is a digital scanner.
A trunktracking police scanner is best to monitor Garland County Arkansas, including Conway. While Garland County operations are on VHF or UHF conventional systems, the City of Hot Springs uses a Motorola trunking system.
To monitor the Arkansas State Police and some other state agencies a digital police scanner is required as they operate on the Arkansas Wireless Information Network (AWIN), a digital APCO P25 trunked system. All counties have assigned talkgroups but only some are using it now.
