An article in the Times-Picayune (page A-17 on Sun 5/24/09) report that the Parental Accountability Legislation proposed by Rep.

2. NEW ONLINE SERVICE TO HEAR EMERGENCY POLICE RADIO LIVE!
www.projectnola.com is offering live access to live radio broadcast police radio, ultimately of the JSPO, NOPD, State Troop B and other New Orleans metro area police departments, sheriff's offices, and emergency services. The site is developing this channel in effort to help keep locals aware of crimes in progress, active dangerous threats, and suspicious activity. Particularly enlightening is the guide to Police Signal Codes. Check it out! I've only heard JPSO live so far.
