Default Questions on police talk

Can someone find me a list of michigan police terms. I know that they are close all over the us but some of them are different like PDA and PI or what does clear for code mean? Thanks.

PDA = property damage accident
PI = personal injury accident

Many of the codes can be found with Google, or searching this forum, or the reference files in the database here.

Off the top of my head

PDA Property Damage Accident
PI Personal Injury Accident
UTL Unable To Locate
GOA Gone On Arrival
ATL Attempt To Locate
BOL Be On Lookout
CID Car In a Ditch
DOA Dead On Arrival
EDP Emotionally Disturbed Person
LKA Last Known Address
LNU Last Name Unknown
QOA Quiet On Arrival
DA District Attorney

DOB Date Of Birth
EC Emergency Contact
FD Fire Department
PC Probable Cause (Reasonable Suspicion - for arrest or stop)

clear for code could be different for police and ems
EMS clear of last call ready for Priority call
Police could be clear of last call need dispatch code for last call
and I am sure others.
