Important Notes about Indiana:

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.
