I've heard a couple of prefix numbers over the air that I haven't seen referenced anywhere. For instance:

A motors unit, 43MQ27.....what division is 43?

A detective unit, 42W40.....what division is 42?

thanks,

Dave

43 Is EOD Units assigned to EOD DUI Taskforce.. only use the 43 Desginations during a Checkpoint or DUI Saturation.... There is no 42.... Maybe 24 which is Central Traffic..

Thanks.....Was pretty sure I heard the William unit as 42, but I'll see if I hear it again.

I managed to get a 2016 version of the LAPD Manual, Chapter 4, more recent than what they have posted online, but it is still frustratingly incomplete. What document actually catalogs all of the radio callsigns?

What is "EOD." In the military EOD is Explosive Ordinance Disposal.

Emergency Operations Division. They do planning and response for major events and critical incidents around the city. In reference to this thread, it includes the special Special Enforcement Section, which has motors officers.
