In some parts of the State I hear "Code 10" as part of the PD transmission. I know that in parts of Florida a "Code 3" means "use lights & siren". What's a "code 10"?

Many thanks!

CSP Is Signal 10 MVA

Most Fd's On Tn/WW/KX/ Etc are Code 10 MVA

But, More & More dispatches Are Going to plain speech Though, Especially The FD's At This Point

In the PD where I live, Code 10 is used for radio silence. I hear it a lot on suspected break ins and other investigations where the perp may still be in the area. Andy

Every department is different, many use plain speech like mentioned. But the ones that still use codes can differ greatly from eachother. To one dept. in Florida, code 3 could mean lights and sirens, but at American Ambulance in Norwich, it means the exact opposite, so it depends.

Same thing in Hartford too. I've heard them say both Code 10 and 10-5, for silence on the channel.

Thank you for your reply - but the "Code 10" is from the dispatcher (in Greenwich).

Code 10

In Greenwich for both PD and FD, "code 10" means respond directly not using emergency lights and sirens. I have also heard PD dispatch use "code 10-1" which I am pretty sure means use lights and sirens as necessary to respond rapidly but discreetly. (for a burglary in progress for example)

Code 20: Respond using emergency lights and sirens continuously.
Code 30: Respond when available.
