Jefferson County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
Most Wisconsin cities and counties use analog VHF channels that can be monitored with a basic police scanner. Some agencies use digital channels on VHF so a digital police scanner would be needed here. In the Milwaukee area there are several types of systems in use, including Motorola (Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties) and EDACS (Watertown and Ozaukeee County) analog trunked systems that can be monitored on a trunktracking police scanner.
A basic police scanner will work for most county and local Police, Fire and Ambulance radio communications in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, including Fort Atkinson and the City of Jefferson. The City of Watertown uses an EDACS trunking system for Police, Fire and Local services.
To monitor the Wisconsin State Patrol and other state agencies a basic police scanner can be used as they operate on VHF radio networks.
