Local police switched to digital. A good digital scanner is $400 plus. So I programmed a Fire tablet as a scanner. Works good, just not enough volume. Looking for a small, cheap, speaker that will plug into the headphone port.

If the tablet has bluetooth, any cheap wireless speaker should work.

Most police departments in my area use 800mhz, and are encrypted so you can't hear what they say.

I can't hear what they say anyway because they talk in 2 or 3 word sentences with high pitched static and screechy radio sounds in between the back and forth conversations.
