What is a CAL?
I transcribe patrol reports and lately have been running across the term "CAL/Cal," as in "CAL was prepared and forwarded to Investigation." I'm unfamiliar with the term and can't find it in police glossaries. Can someone please tell me what it means? Thanks!

Have you tried asking someone from the agency that you transcribe for? They would know better what their own reports say.Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

Calling All Ladies. Calories how bout some context.“down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." Raymond Chandler

Only one I found there was perhaps "Caliber".
As IAM Rand said, context please!SCHP TCO

I think what my colleagues are saying is this: Police lingo varies from locale to locale, so we don't really know what CAL means in your neck of the woods. Just ask one of the officers in your department.MAC
