What's the legality of recording and broadcasting a public safety police band?

Episode 900 (20:24)

Gary from Tejunga, CA

Leo says he'd have to look at the local laws. It's not a copyright issue, but a legal one. James in the chatroom is a HAM and says he could listen to it, but not record it or make it public. He should consult a lawyer about this if he wants to pursue it.
