From what I understand; even my neighbors across the street have a scanner to listen in on Mobile/cell & other phone calls; to pick up on the police radio.
And; from what I understand it's now illegal;
see the following sites:
unless they have a warrant;
for police to have scanners and listen to mobile/cell phone calls. That; the police stations are required to have new scanners that do not ? pick up on the mobile calls.
For some reason, this sounds a bit off. Does anyone know any further?
