Does anyone know about the law and scanners in New Zealand.  I thought
that you could listen to anything you wanted as long as you didn't
relay the information.

I was recently stopped at a breath testing checkpoint here in
Christchurch, the police officer saw a scanner and asked did I listen
to the police? (of course I do!)  I said that I suppose I could, they
said if I did they could confiscate the equipment!

This sounds like bs to me, does anyone know for sure?

Cheers
Nathan
