I've pretty fluent with "cop talk", UTL, ATL, BOL, Etc...

But I keep hearing this from my local city department, "TRC", as in, " 3Baker50, clear, no report, TRC".

Google was no help at all.



Thanks,

Delta

ATL - Attempt to Locate
BOL or BOLO = Be On the Lookout
UTL = Unable to Locate , Unfounded

Talked to Reporting Caller ??

There's no telling what it means. I remember years ago, officers would arrive at a dispatch location and say they were "TOA." It meant "Time Of Arrival" and meant the dispatcher could punch the clock or write the officer's time of arrival.

According to one Sheriffs site(Hamilton County), they use TRC to mean traffic. But, that may not apply to your situation

Police codes are pretty specific to the area, town, city, etc. where they are used. The general trend has been to plain language anyway.

This department uses pretty standard stuff, for the most part.

UTL/ATL for unable to locate/attempt to locate.

BOL=be on lookout

They just say 'Traffic" for a traffic stop.

This "TRC" I've just recently started hearing. And it's always at the termination of a call.

Hmm...

If it's at a termination of a call, it's likely some sort of disposition code and those are agency specific so it could be anything. In what type of calls is it used? Every call? Only certain ones?

Mostly "415's", domestic disturbances, and such.

Eureka PD

You may want to post this question in your STATE Forum...
That's a good idea. Wish I'd thought of that before I posted it here. I'm not supposed to post in more than one forum, though, so I guess I'm SOL.

No, we're happy to move posts for members. Beats issuing a warning for cross-posting.
Thank you. I'd love this to be moved, when you guys get time.

What state? I know there's a Eureka CA but not many members from that way. May not be that much of help.

I would suggest placing a location or agency name in header when asking questions of this nature. It'll help get the attention of those familiar with that area/agency.

There is a wealth of knowledgeable and helpful members that will be glad to answer your questions or point you in the right direction.

Well Mr Google Answered your Question. :cool:
I tried Eureka California Police Code TRC and found it in the 4th Listing :roll:

For those who need to know right now

Did you know? Eureka Police often use the term TRC when they clear calls in the field. "TRC" or "transient related call" is the recently added acronym used to track calls in the system.
