It is not illegal to listen but it should be.
I have no idea why anyone who was not a criminal would be interested in listening.
I can assure you my dear old Pa is not a criminal
He just likes to know if there have been accidents etc. And finds it mildly amusing when people speeding and being morons get caught.
As for the radio, I always assumed it was a normal radio but the last time I looked at it was when I was about 9 so honestly I couldn't be sure.edit
- a quick Google search turned up lots of answers, the general consensus is that it is legal to listen but illegal to use the information to your advantage.
