The Montana Standard launched a new feature for our readers Thursday.

All local Butte-Silver police, fire and Montana Highway Patrol scanner traffic is now available at the Standard's Web site.

Now you can listen to police scanner traffic online — just as if you had a scanner in your home.

All you need is a pair of speakers and sound card in your computer.

Go to"> or click on the icon on our home page (shown below) and tune in. You can leave the Web site up and running 24/7, and it will broadcast scanner traffic all day long.
