Hays County Sheriff's Office uses 10-codes that are slightly different from Texas DPS.
10-Codes 10-17 En Route/ En Route from _________ 10-23 Arrived on scene 10-32 Armed 10-84 ?
I believe Hays County Sheriff's Office might be dispatching deputies by MDT (which they refer to as "paging"). Units are calling with "received page." I'm not sure that this is a pager, as fire units would have.

San Marcos Park Rangers
San Marcos Police Department
San Marcos Police has 94 officers on 3 shifts, Day, Evening and Midnight, each shift containing 2 platoons, an A and B. Each platoon consists of about 11-14 officers with 2 sergeants per platoon. San Marcos Police has a downtown foot patrol (mostly on Thursday through Sunday nights), a bicycle patrol (both downtown and at the Outlet Malls), and a motorcycle unit (3). The city is divided in to 5 beats (Adam, Baker, Charlie, David & Edward). Adam 1 being the Day Shift in Adam district, Charlie 3 being a Midnight shift in Charlie district. Extras in a district add a number to the end of their call, ex: David 3-1 (three-one). I've found that any officer (of any rank) will work a beat, so it wouldn't be rare if SMPD Cmdr. 102, worked the Edward 3 shift.
District General Boundaries Adam: East of I35 from McCarty to the San Marcos River Baker: West of I35, from Wonderworld Dr south, including the Outlet Malls Charlie: West of I35, including lower campus/downtown David: E & W of I35, from Hwy 80 north, including Aquarena Springs Dr and Hwy 21 Edward: West of I35, Bishop St to Craddock Ave, including RR12 and upper campus
Downtown patrol usually runs 10-27s/28s on SMPD Dispatch 2 (tgrp 554) on busy nights.

- San Marcos Police Department has recently started dispatching ATLs by MDT. Often officers will confirm that they have gone 10-8 through their MDT by saying "Ofc. XXX clear, 10-8 by MDT." It is unclear how much future traffic will switch to MDT dispatching.
