Police Car Numbering System

The composition of a unit call. Calls beginning with 1 - 3 are district calls and represent shift. Second number 1 - 9 represents the district number. Third and fourth number represents individual car unit-IDs.

The dispatcher/officer will provide the following information to identify the unit on the radio: work shift, district area and car number. For example, when you hear a four-digit unit-ID, such as: 1-2-3-4

  • 1 is the shift; in this case it would be the afternoon watch (7 AM - 3 PM), 2 is the evening watch (3 PM - 11 PM) and 3 is the midnight watch (11 PM - 7 AM). Dispatchers will typically drop the shift number and use only the district and car number to identify a particular unit.
  • 2 is the district area; in this case it is the 2nd district, 3 would be the 3rd, 4 the 4th, etc.
  • 34 is the car number. Certain car numbers in the range of 00 to 19 are assigned to the supervisors and chiefs (a.k.a. "white shirts"). Of these supervisory car numbers the ones you are most likely to hear are: 01 (District Lieutenant), 11 (District Sergeant) and 12 (District Supervisor).

  • The Desk Clerk is an officer that works in the lobby of each Super-Police Station (North, Central & South) Patrol Divisions. Basically, he's the 1st officer you see when you walk in the front doors.

Police Radio Codes

All calls dispatched are given a priority code. The lowest priority, Code 4 (or Stack Calls), are usually done over the I/Mobile (pronounced "eye-mobile") laptop system, this method is know as a "Silent Dispatch" - the primary reason for doing this is to lessen radio traffic congestion on the dispatch channels, but it can also be used as a stealth tool to maintain privacy, when needed.

  • Code 1 - Highest Priority (example: life and death situations)
  • Code 2 - High priority (sxample: shots fired, purse snatching)
  • Code 3 - Low priority (example: disturbance, loud music, suspicious auto)
  • Code 4 - Lowest priority (a.k.a. stack assignment - example: parking violations)

The city doesn't use brevity codes (sometiems called "10" codes) for dispatch, although you will still occasionally hear "27" (occupied car check), "42" (2-man car) and "70" (out of service at the station). The current trend in law enforcement has been to eliminate brevity code usage in favor of clear text (spoken word) radio communication transmissions.

Disposition Codes

When an officer finishes an assignment, they will give it a disposition code:

  • Code D (Code-David) = Disregard
  • Code F (Code-Frank) = False Alarm
  • Code G (Code-George) = Gone On Arrival (GOA)
  • Code N (Code-Nora) = No Report Necessary (NRN)
  • Code O (Code-Ocean) = Other Unit to Handle
  • Code U (Code-Union) = Unfounded
  • Code X (Code-Xray) = Cancel
  • Code SR = Supplemental Report

Retired Code s

The city doesn't use brevity codes (sometimes called "10" codes) for dispatch, although you will still occasionally hear "27" (occupied car check), "42" (2-man car) and "70" (out of service at the station). The current trend in law enforcement has been to eliminate brevity code usage in favor of clear text (spoken word) radio communication transmissions.
