    the codes they use are completely different from most other departments....they mostly use plain english.....there is no 10-23. just "on scene." and 10-99, for instance means acknowledgement from a one officer car, whereas it means a NCIC hit in other places. so, if you're working alone, you come in service saying your callsign, 10-8, 10-99, transport or non-transport, and give your cad id.

    dude, go on a ride along.....you'll love it. it's where i got hooked.

    yeah, but not quite.

    if you're riding alone, and you "copy the message", you would say 10-99. if you're riding with a partner, and you "copy the message", you would say 10-4.
