• 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:

J codes are used for levels of injury with J 4 being death never heard a J5 yet.

Not so fast. J codes are different based on what is preceding them in most cases. 10-51 J1 for the highway patrol means a tow truck company has been contacted and is in route.

A 10-50 J1 is a no injury accident, J2 injury, J3 blocking roadway, J4 fatality.

10-97 J1 prior criminal record, 10-97 J2 normally probabtion/parole or known to carry weapons, 10-97 J3 known to assault officers.


Every department is different and the ones i've listed above are what i would call "the norm" for J codes statewide. That being said other agencies can use them however they want, and listening to the call and trying to figure out what is going on, and why they said it was J15 instead of J12 is your only option. The highway patrol 10 codes are listed in the database, but they vary by department.

In other areas you will hear them use "Signal" followed by a number, this is to supplement the 10 codes, or at times to get rid of them all together. Other departments use simple english, and apparently some(although i haven't heard any) use J codes beyond the traditional J1-4
