  • 10-4 10-8 code question....

    codes like 10-4 and all the codes and such, are they universal? I am going into law enforcement and if they are universal I would like to know if there is some kind of book or something I could get a hold of where I could go ahead and start learning the codes before the academy even starts so that would be one less thing I have to worry about. Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

    No. They are not.

    I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

      Not even CLOSE to being universal.....if you are close to being hired, I would suggest researching the particular agency you are applying for.......find out what codes they are using.....

            So to answer your question the answer is no.. we don't all use the same codes. My agency uses 10 codes and signals. I can be on the phone with a friend from a neighboring agency and hear the radio in the background and know that his codes are different from mine. So as someone else suggested.. when you get close to being hired by an agency get their codes and learn them.

              Wow, that is kind of surprising. I kind of figured everyone would use the same 10 codes. You would think that would make everything a heck of alot easier but oh well.

                Many agency's,including mine, are moving away from codes. Plain English.
                "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

                  X2 for California. In the event of an emergency, having compatible equipment will do no good if we are all speaking a different language.

                    The STATE agencies may be......we sure arent....neither is LAPD as far as I know.......we told the FCC to get stuffed when they brought it up a few years ago......

                    The only time we will go to plain english will be in the event of a major disaster......so, that means we will be speaking plain english several times a year here in LA

                      I like codes better. Less syllables are spoken to communicate an entire idea. Like the phonetic alphabet, there was a darn good reason 9 /10 / 11 codes started in the first place.

                          Some agencies use 9 codes, 10 codes and 11 codes; or, a combination of any or all. Some agencies use plain talk. Here are a number of threads that deal with radio codes:

                          Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

(such as a warrant hit on a person you're running). The last PD I worked for used 10-7 as "I'm on break and not taking calls unless an emergency." Two very different uses of the same code.
                            10-7 for me means Verify Address.

                              My understanding is that the move is to plain english. But I can't imagine anyone forgetting the 10-4.
                              Though their numbers are many, as the grass upon the field, we will count them at the end of the day.
