Howard County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
The Indiana State Police and many other agencies have switched to the statewide Safe-T digital 800 MHz. trunked radio system. The system can be monitored with several models of digital police scanners. Many counties and cities statewide use the Safe-T system as well.
Counties that do not use the Safe-T system use a variety of trunked and conventional systems. Marion County (Indianapolis) uses an analog Motorola trunked system that can be monitored with a trunktracking scanner, several other counties use either EDACS or Motorola systems or VHF conventional (non trunked systems.
A basic police scanner will work for all county and local Police, Fire and Ambulance radio communications in Howard County, Indiana, including Kokomo.
To monitor the Indiana State Police and other state agencies a digital trunking scanner radio is needed as they operate on the SAFE-T APCO25 digital trunked system.
