http://www.police-scanner.info/live-police-scanners.htm

here is one site.  if you google it, you'll find others.  i have not tried any.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

buzzbeejr, if you scrolled down, they list live feeds.  they also had some other sites listed.

let us know what else you find.  sounds interesting.  i found one for Portland, oregon...not that i really want to listen to them!  :-)

I think he was hoping for a program to pick live signals off the air. I wonder if they make a card for the computer that will let you use it as a scanner?
I'll have to investigate,they seem to have cards for everything else such as tv radio,bluetooth or whatever else.
