 Are you all so afraid of a uniform that you can't ask a cop?
 Many PD's print and pass out free copies of their 10-codes,
 but you folks sound like you're too intimidated to ask.

        I live in Grand Rapids, MI, and have been trying for months to get
the police & fire 10-codes.  I have called both deparements, and the
both
have said that they may not give me that information.  I have called
mulitple
times, but get the same answer each time.  Maybe GR is different that
way, this
is a dutch community...  ;-)  Oh well, just a though...

The book "Monitor America" 3rd edition 1996 includes police 10 codes and
also crime codes [ i.e. 415, 211, etc. ] for major metro areas.  There are
local variations to the 10 codes, so what applies in ***ia, may or may
not apply in Texas, or any other state.   It is a wealth of information
and was definately worth the price IMO.

POLICE 10 CODES

Post by David Ma » Thu, 12 Sep 1996 04:00:00

There isn't much standardization to 10-codes.  Your city's 10-code
may be totally different than the 10-code used in a neighboring
suburb.  I worked in one city that shared a common border with
another city, and we both had different 10-codes.  We had to learn
both to be able to communicate with our own officers and the
neighboring city's officers.  I'm now with a sheriff's department
that uses a totally different system of codes and signals.

10-codes and other codes and signals were not developed as a way
to keep secrets from listeners.  They were developed as a way to
keep communications brief, because radio channels are shared and
it's rude to tie up a channel.  Many departments that have exclu-
sive use of their frequencies don't bother with codes...they use
plain English.  The sheriff's department where I work uses plain
English most of the time, but the older deputies and dispatchers
lapse into the old code and signal routine out of habit from the
days before the department switched to a trunked 800 system with
exclusive channels.

If your department doesn't want to tell you what their codes are,
make friends with a cop and ask him/her.

Hi All,

If anyone is interested, I have an ascii copy of 10-codes and signal
codes used by
the Indiana State Police.  Dunno if they will match other areas or not.

I'll post them to the newsgroup if someone asks, or will also email
privately...
your choice.

Regards,
Stan
