• 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:

10-8 generally means enroute to another assignment that the dispatcher has given them, 10-98 means they have completed assignment

10-8 means in service or ready for next call.

Most 10-98's should be followed by 10-8, unless they are going to another call.

This is the way it should be used. When a unit says 10-8 or 10-98 they get the same point accross. I have never heard a unit go 10-98 to start they shift. Thanks for your input, alot better way to explain it.

I think some places use 10-8 at beginning of shift, and 10-98 for just about everything else.

10-8 can also be used when a 2nd or 3rd unit is dispatched to a call and they are clearing. Only the assigned or responsible officer can clear the call 10-98 followed by what ever closing code he/she chooses. So you could hear " 1A12 10-8 from Main street" and then hear "1A22 10-98 Adam" Both units could be on same call, 1 goes 10-8 and the other takes the 10-98 because he/she is the unit writing the report. Hope this helps

Codes can vary, sometimes beyond all recognition, depending on where you are, but within California, for instance, they TEND to be fairly consistent. Usually.

Of the three places where I've been a dispatcher, two used 10-codes and one didn't. At the two agencies that did, one in Northern Cal and the other in Southern Cal, neither used 10-98 at all. They both used 10-8 to mean either "available" (whether at the beginning of shift or after a call) or "finished." The other agency used "Clear" to mean the same thing... "I'm available."

However, in all three cases, if a unit was finished with a call but NOT going to be available for another one, they would say "I'm 10-8 (or "clear") from the call on Main Street and 10-19 (or "out to the station"); or "I'm 10-8 (/clear) from S Auburn & Empire St, and enroute the call on Dorsey Dr."
