[Suggestion] Radio Protocols


Recommended Posts

Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website): MTA

Suggestion: For many of us, radio codes can get quite confusing, as everywhere is different. Seeing as this game is based in the State of California, I think it only makes sense to use the LAPD's radio codes when/if the /rd suggestion is accepted

Why should this be added?: Would make things more uniform so that everyone can communicate better

Anything else you'd like to add?: Taken from an LAPD radioreference forum topic

F9 already has a list of police radio codes tho :P The 10 codes goes up to 10-00 to 10-2000 (idk which state uses these police 10 codes tho).

Also in game Code 1 is no lights and siren, Code 2 lights only, and Code 3 lights and siren (mostly I go code 3 response. Rarely code 2).

Radio codes vary greatly which is why communication (especially interagency) is shifting to plain talk.

Also if you think I'm learning an entire new set of codes you are wrong.

10-2 Status OK (see 10-83)

10-6 Busy Unless Urgent

10-7 Unavailable

10-8 Available

10-9 Repeat message

10-20 Location (even that isn't used nearly as much)

10-23 On scene

10-24 Assignment complete

10-27 Driver history

10-28 Run plate

10-29 NCIC check

10-33 Emergency

10-41 Beginning Tour of Duty

10-42 Ending Tour

10-50 Crash

10-55 Drunk

10-60 Car in Vicinity

10-74 Negative (also not wanted/negative warrants NCIC)

10-76 Enroute (also not used very much)

10-95 Transporting to jail

10-96 Psych

10-99 Wanted

10-200 drugs

That's what's used around my parts in case you were wondering. On my phone so I didn't cross check
