Most of the police in Australia have gone to digital scanners now so unless you have a relatively new (and relatively expensive !!) scanner you can't listen in anymore...

There's a lot of different rules and legislations regarding the legalities of listening in on certain bands and I think it depends on the state or terroritory as to what happens if you are caught with one switched on

not sure about anywhere else but there isnt a restriction here. i know heaps with them and no worries. wouldnt have one blaring in teh car when being pulled over as that just might upset them but no restriction.
