The Chicago Police Department is providing official feeds in cooperation with Broadcastify.com for each of their radio zones. The referrals below may also be found the METRO AREA: CHICAGO - LIVE AUDIO FEES page on Broadcastify (feed archives are not provided).

Official feeds from the Chicago Police Department were apparently established in an effort to provide transparency as the police department converts their radio system to a secure encrypted system that can not be monitored by consumer police/fire scanning radios. The radio transmissions are likely going to be delayed by at least 30 minutes, and could be blocked entirely during extra-ordinary circumstances.


The following three stream sources serve approximately the same official radio communications, except Eric Tendian has multiple simultaneous communications going with some extra comms that are subject to change. Some of these sources in all three categories below may gradually become obsolete as the Chicago Police Department converts their radio system to encrypted secure radio talk groups. Stay safe.

The feed link is the Chicago Police Zone 12 Radio System that dispatches the 15th and 25th Districts.  This Zone is unique because of the two Districts using the same last three digits (unit/car numbers) when calling Beatcars.  Example is, with other Zones they will call beat 1511 as 511 and beat  2511 as 511.  So what they did was to have the Beatcars in the 15th District use the Station neighborhood name of the 15th District/Austin Station, as their call sign.  Example is if Beat 1511 was calling the Zone or the Zone was call Beat 1511, they use 1511 or Austin 11 and then 511 on the Zone is known as Beat 2511.
