Aurora Police & Fire Unit ID's and Codes

Aurora Police Department

City divided into 3 Areas:

  • Area 1 - West side and downtown
  • Area 2 - East side
  • Area 3 - Far east side (DuPage/Kendall/Will Co. portions)

Each area is divided into 4 districts:

  • Districts 3,5,7,9 - Area 1
  • Districts 2,4,6,8 - Area 2
  • Districts 10,12,14,16 - Area 3
        1. = Patrol units (e.g. 203, second shift car assigned to district 3).
        2. X = Patrol units (e.g. 110A, a backup car assigned to district 10, first shift).
  • P## = Community Oriented Policing units (e.g. P28). Area 1 C.O.P. units are in the teens, Area 2 units are the twenties, Area 3 are the thirties.
  • G## = Special Operations Group units (e.g. G11). These officers drive unmarked cars, wear plain clothes with bullet proof vests, and handle vice related crimes.
    1. F## = Downtown units (e.g. 1F12). These officers are most often on foot in the downtown area, doing casino patrol, handling calls, etc. The first number is the shift number, and the two numbers after the F can only be either 10,11,12,and 13 (the 10 and 12 have nothing to do with Area 3 districts).
    2. L9# = Prisoner transport vans (e.g. 2L93). Since patrol officers are often too busy to transport their arrestees to the jail, transport vans manned by normal patrol officers take care of this. The first number is the shift, and the two numbers after "Lincoln" are either 90,91,92,93,94,or 95. Do not confuse with the other "Lincoln" units (see below).
    3. L# = Special detail cars (e.g. 3L3). These are patrol officers who do not handle calls; instead they do special details in their Area.
  • T# = Traffic investigators (e.g. T8). They handle serious accident investigations.
  • Z# = Traffic detail cars (e.g. Z3). Normal patrol officers who enforce traffic laws for the day. The number after the "Zebra" most often indicates the Area the car is assigned to.
  • H## = Animal control units (e.g. H28). They're not on the air all the time. I've only heard H27, 28, and 29.
  • M# = Park district units working at the water park area (e.g. M1 or M2 only). They use this ID when they're on the Aurora's radio; they're normally dispatched by Kane Co.
  • I## = Investigators (e.g. I38).
  • J## = Juvenile officers/ School liaison officers (e.g. J8). A one or two digit number can follow the "John".
  • O### = Off duty officers. The officer's three digit badge number follows the "Ocean".
    1. S## = Supervisors (e.g. 1S19). The first number is the shift, and the other two numbers indicate a lieutenant (in the teens) or a sergeant (twenties).
  • C## = Commanders (e.g. C84). The guys on top. The chief is C99.
  • X### = Officers working extra jobs. The officer's badge number follows the "x-ray".
  • B# = Cadets (e.g. B5). Teenagers in the APD cadets program.
    1. D# = Desk officer (e.g. 2D1). A normal patrol officer assigned to take reports at the front desk.

10 CODES (NON-STANDARD)

  • 10-3 = Affirmative
  • 10-6 = Busy

OTHER CODES

  • CODE 1 = Carrying a passenger (most often used with the transport vans).
  • CODE 2 = Meal break
  • CODE 4 = Warrant service
  • CODE 8 = Meet
  • CODE 9 = ?
  • CODE 10 = Local/community patrol
  • CODE 11 = Bathroom break
  • CODE 23 = Sensitive info (same as 10-61)
  • CODE 30 = Emergency traffic only (channel closed)
