• 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 was directed here by a dispatcher/writer on an author list I belong to. I just need some local police codes (don't know if I'm saying this right or not) that an officer or detective would hear from dispatch for "shots fired". By the way, my story is set in Nashville.

Thanks in advance.

I think you can still get a copy of Metro Police codes from Electronic Adapters, (previously Brink Electronics), a Radio Shack dealer on Gallatin Road in Nashville, TN. Telephone number is 615-227-5441.

With the exception of 10-4, you will very seldom ever hear them say the 10 portion of the 10-codes. For example, you will just hear 83 for shots fired. It seems to be part of the overall effort to minimize voice traffic.
