What does "Bolo" mean?! I hear it used quite a bit and didn't know what it meant. Sorry, it's probably a stupid question!!

I've seen "bolo" used in forums for other states, but have never heard it used over the air here.

"Attempt to Locate" is usually the phrase I hear.

That's the way it was here in the Bootheel too, but they're using it here more all the time. AMW must be a popular show with the police too.

How about "Calling all Cars.......Calling all Cars......Be on the lookout......" ??? (in a nasal voice)

Seems like I remember a phrase like that from either an old cop show, movie, or cartoon.
