The list that Bill points to is accurate. The only variation I've ever heard, and it's pretty rare, is 16F. That indicates a fatal accident.

The lingo is actually more illuminating.

"Recon" is Accident Reconstruction
BDL is Break Down Lane
94C refers to illegal drugs since Chapter 94C of the Mass. General Laws covers that.
"Alternate High Speed Lane" is the Break Down Lane.

You probably won't hear it much as it's frowned upon, but HUA means that the driver has his head up his *** as in not paying attention.

The Environmental Police use essentially the same codes and are also on the MSP trunk on their own talk groups. That's often more interesting to listen to than the MSP, especially during hunting season. In addition to all of the hunting and fishing laws, they can enforce traffic laws (Chapter 90) as well.

Adding a couple to Gary's list:

"CPAC" refers to the MSP detectives assigned to the relevant DA office.

"Notifications" refers to the notifications required in the case of a fatality: Recon, CPAC and, in the case of a fire, the State Fire Marshal's office.

A "Bambi" incident is a deer strike.

"OLN" is an "operator's license number" (formerly, and occasionally still, referred to as "Line 12").

WMS is the Warrant Management System.

Aegis is the computer system that provides access to such things as WMS, 9s, 10s, 11s and 14s, and some other things.

Code 4, when applied to an inanimate object or an animate object other than the trooper, is a slang expression for ceased function or deceased.

"R1" through "R9" usually refers to a speech intelligility description in response to a 13: R9 means "full quieting" and "R1" would mean totally unreadable. "R0" ("R Zero") is sometimes slang for an utter skell.

Radio IDs:

All radio IDs, when converted to decimal numbers, are summed to 700000 for display.

The original plan was that an ID of 75xxxx would be a cruiser radio in the cruiser with fender number xxxx, though this is not always the case.

An ID of 74xxxx refers to the Trooper's issued portable number, where xxxx is the Trooper's RTC number.

Z-1, can we get an 11 & 14 off a line 12 of.... :cool:

BTW - Aegis ?? probably miss heard. CJIS - aka the computer system used to access In/Out of state records as well as NCIC

R1 - R9 can also be a reference to RMV License/Registration transactions. More context needed to determine exact reference.
