Police Scanner 10 Codes

Police use the 10 codes to simplify an event into a number. It’s much easier and more clear on a police radio to say 10-7 rather than ‘out of service’, especially when radio transmissions can be garbled or hard to understand. I’m not sure if all police departments still use…
