Tropic/Police band: 75 - 175 m (1.7 - 4.0 MHz) & 175 - 550 m/545 KHz - 1714 KHz AM-MW broadcast band,
for use of AC alternative current [actually as it's usual] as well as DC direct current mains power [as usually partly up to the 1950's]).
As taken from the RM.org threat "Police Radio":
The most popular (Police) bands were around 1.6 MHz and 2.4 MHz. These frequencies can be found on radio scales and dials all over the 1930's and even later. The entire band between BC and real SW therefore got the name Police Band.
