    Is it pretty much the same throughout the country??

    I found this pretty extensive list:

    No. There are several variations. Probably three or four depending on the region.

        Our county just went to plain speech about a year ago. The 10 codes we were using were different though.

          Our county is almost entirely silent dispatch but we obviously still use some 10 codes which also vary from the link you provided.

            Most of the agencies I worked for have abandoned ten code...plain english is easier and besides, all the turds figure out the stuff they need to know...10-99 or 10-96 and so on.

            My current department tends to use 10-4 and 10-22 (disregard) but for the most part we use plain ol' English and our MCT's.

              There is not such thing as a "standard" radio code. You'll often see some similarities regionally, but it's not uncommon for two adjacent agencies to use different codes. That's why FEMA advocates plain speech in interagency exercises and incidents.

                I worked for DoD for 2 years, and they used just "plain english". Now that I work for a municipality, I use 10 codes which differ, and I couldn't image going back to plain english...just shortens things up.
                You have the right to remain silent, but apparently you lack the skill to exercise that right.

                  That's funny DOD because to me, saying, 'clear', 'back in' and 'see report' are as short and sweet as you can get. Personally, I hate 10 code or any code.

                    We use plain English, except for using the standard California response codes (Code 1,2,3). However, I think we are the only agency in the free world where Code 7 is anything but lunch. For us, it's a dead body.

                      Thanks for replies.

                      Does getting "86'd" mean killed?

                        Generally speaking, 86ed, means to get kicked out, or banned.

                          I work with several different counties and each has it's own variation. There is no standard.

                            I can totally understand your point of view but I've been using 10 code since I started. We just started moving toward plain text and it's hard to turn off the 10 codes. I think their are advantages either way. Personally, I'd prefer a national 10-code or at least state standard 10 code so cops can understand each other while still using brevity codes.

                              In some areas it isn't even standardized across the county, let alone the country.
