Please keep in mind if you are planning to listen to the law this will not work in larger cities.
I wouldn't flat out say that it won't work. NYPD transmissions don't use any fancy trunking, frequency hopping, or anything that would prevent a basic scanner from listening in. Many cities will though. My 20 year old Bearcat still gets NYPD transmissions perfectly.
Does this work in store for paging or walky-talky?
As long as the transmission is on an open frequency there is no reason it shouldn't work. But it is probably overkill and you don't need employees listening to emergency service broadcasts when they are supposed to be helping customers.
Don't waste your money. It's analog. No P25. No trunking. Most major cities are trunked and/or digital. The iPhone scanner app is more useful.
There are plenty of people who like to listen to aviation, ham radio and other non-trunked frequencies. And there still are plenty of non-trunked police/fire etc... departments around. You will be hard pressed to find a decent trunking scanner new for $80...
