A handful of the departments here in southeastern Michigan would use special identifiers with the code for female subject, which were not officially on the records.

602 Black Female
604 White Female
607 Asian Female


To this they would add on occasion:

(B) Baker = Total babe
(F) Frank or Foxtrot = Fat
(S) Sam = Sexy
(U) Uniform = Ugly

Hence the carefully worded post where I didn't confess to anything and even if I did, the alleged infringement occurred prior to 10/1994, which was when the law was put into effect, since it is mentioned that it was "about a decade ago".

"Subject is a white female, 4 feet 5 inches, 160 pounds."

"Heavy build."

I heard this last night. Tha call was sad the cops were shure funny.

A call came out for a family disturbance. The details were, the wife just had surgery and the husband is refusing to help here go to the bathroom. One cop was dipatched.

As he's going another cop says do you need me to 10-16 (back you up). The other cop responds, "Why do you want to help me take her go potty. Sad but funny

Just heard:

59: "59 to Central - Traffic"

Central: "59"

59: "Be out with Texas (tag number), west side of the PD"

Central: "59 - OK"

59: "This will now be a Signal 76 (non-injury accident), he just struck a parked vehicle."

Central: "59 - OK, 40 - assist 59, west side of PD"

40: "10-96"

59: "59 to Central - Need a 10-28 (tag check) on Oklahoma (tag number)"

Central: "That's MY vehicle!"

59: "That's what I thought."

Whoops!!

This reminds me of one time a teenager around 18 years old was really loosing it on LSD in late June and thought he was George Washington. He was even dressed up like him. The first car to respond was leaving the Baskin Robins Ice Cream place. The Dispatcher told him that the RP says he is trying to cut down a cherry tree in the front yard. The patrol told them, "Yes we can not tell a lie, it [the tree] landed on top of the car when we arrived."

The backup car said, "David what a way get a cherry on top of your Sundae."

Funny!

We were called to assist another department with a fairly large fire early the other morning. When the fire was out and overhaul was being done, a driver of an engine called the IC (the department's chief) and advised him he had everything on his engine picked up and requested to know if the IC needed anything off his engine before he came to the scene.

At that moment another firefighter picked up some soot from the fire and rubbed it on front of the chief's coat (as a joke), while the chief was keying his mike to get back to the engine driver. Without letting his thumb off the mic, he said something like "I'm getting ready to kick somebody's a**". :rolleyes:

Overall, this chief has a reputation of running a good/tight show. That makes it even funnier both incidents happened (the soot + the comment).

A light plane just made an emergency landing on the Turner Turnpike between Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The Okla. Highway Patrol trooper arriving on the scene ran a DRIVER'S LICENSE check on the pilot! Gonna have to add that to Flight School training, make sure your DL is valid in case you ever have to land on the highway!

Can hear it now: "Okla. City to Turner 586, license number as given is a valid Class D, to John Smith out of Tulsa. No flags, no restrictions, with endorsements M-motorcycle and A-aircraft."

The airplane ran out of gas. Someone brought the plane some gas and they closed the highway so the airplane could take back off. After the plane took off and they had the highway back open one of the officers said "I guess they will do a better preflight next time." It was a student pilot and a trainer.

Default Last Week in Dallas...............

Channel 02 DPD 460.3750 PL: 173.8 (North East)

When the Down pour started Everyone knew it was to be a long night of Hydro-planners on LBJ-This is a common issue, when it Rains in Dallas, STAY OFF LBJ FREEWAY!!!

A Massive wreck at LBJ and Skillman had Police, Fire and Towing tied up, DPD A&I's were Not an Abundant item. infact there were 7 700 elements available, and 11 900 elements. for a total 18 Traffic officers to work the city in the terenchal Downpours that night.
I Don't know who the Dispatcher working Channel 2 was, But I think He is New, and He is a good Dispatcher too.

Anyways, about 11:30 or so in the evening, when All hell was breaking loose, this 230's Element calls for an A&I "For a minor wreck"
The Dispatcher Let out an enormious laugh, His histerics echoed on the Channel 3 Dispatchers mic.
The 230 element, Replies, "I'm Serious" The Dispatcher Replies: So was I, the element switches to Channel 7 the Traffic channel, and askes the dispatcher there for an A&I. While he is there doing this, The Channel-2 Dispatcher keys up, and states, "He's actually on 7 asking for one" in an amazed astonishing tone, 2 or 3 other mics key up, with snickers and other rude non voice gestures, 240 (A Supervisor keys up, asking if the poor fellow was alright. Even the Super was amazed of the ignorant request.

In Dallas, When it rains, It Pours!

I must say these are some classic moments

Dispatch: Unit 245, respond to car fire in your area.
Unit 245: I can see it. I'm standing right infront of it.
Dispacth: Is everything 10-4?
Unit 245: As about as 10-4 as a car on fire can be.
a few clicks happened
Dispatch: Fire en route.
Unit 245: Its about time, its hot out here, and my water wouldnt do much. Plus i need a re-fill.

THought it was kinda funny

A neighboring EMS Squad received a call one evening for a woman with a thumb tack stuck in her foot. The same squad received a call early one morning, it was dispatched as "Elderly woman having difficulty getting her husband up." The second time the dispatcher placed the call she changed her wording a bit under a muffled laughter.

Provincial Police up here in Ontario are now VHF Astro Trunking...

"Orillia Operations to 5F-201"
<pause>
"5F-201 copy Orillia"
<pause>
"5F-201 call Orillia"

"5F-201, yeah, sorry dispatcher, I was getting bonked"

Damn system-busy tones, eh? And to boot, it was a female officer.

Needless to say, the comm center got a good laugh.

Two to add:

This one is more of a non-scanner heard story but anyway:

One of our officers was on a traffic stop one night, and a new dispatcher was working one of her first couple of nights on her own... She called the officer on the stop and he advised 10-12 (standby).....well appearantly she had NO commonsense and actually stood up....when one of the other officers walked by the communications room, he asked her whats up......she told him she was just standing by...... Well, when the officer on the stop came back and requested a license check, her first reply was "Can I sit back down?" I dont think he was able to ever read the information off of the license cause he was laughing so hard....


And another:

An engine from one of the local companies was en-route to a house fire reported fully involved on Blah Blah street....well as the unit turned onto Blah Blah street, the officer asked central what the house numbers were....the dispatcher replied, go to the first house that is on fire, and put it out....

I gotta agree with that one, doesnt take toooo much sense to find a fully involved house fire...
