Why is the Mt. Laurel PD so hard to understand? I don't understand their unit number alignment nor their signal codes. It would otherwise be good listening since I'm in that area a lot and know it well.

See Joe Cardani's Philly Scanner Guide for the unit numbering & codes. It's a little confusing at first, but if you monitor it constantly, you'll get the hang of it. Example: Signal 21 is a motor vehicle accident, a response code is put in front of according to severity: 221 is a MVA with injuries, 321 is a minor MVA. Code 1 is only used for a signal 01 (officer needs assistance), Code 4 indicates no other assistance needed (ala California). Medford uses the same codes and a similar numbering system. The dispatcher decides what response code to used, the supervisor can change it. FYI, the codes were originally used by Cherry Hill way back when.
