• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have seen it used but extremely rare. 9 times out of ten it's "962 INVOLVING PEDEST". Glad you were able to get the answer.
962P is the nature code the dispatcher types when entering a call for service for a 926 involving pedestrian. Samantha voices "962 involving pedestrian".

When it's a larger incident or a vehicle injuries multiple pedestrians, the call type is a MED2-1 or MED3-1 but the description reads Medical Response. The dispatcher will then override the description to more accurately reflect the nature of the incident. So it may say "962P MED2-1" or whatever the dispatcher types.
