A few notes (for anyone interested)...



I was looking at this list and noticed a few things different then what I remember when I was employed there.

For anyone not familiar, "traffic" means what the officers or dispatchers say on the radio.


10-1 means that the radio "traffic" was unable to be copied (understood). I have never heard it used to mean "change location".


10-3 is usually used with 10-33 to mean that any officer not involved with the current emergency situation should either hold their traffic or transmit on another channel.


10-13 is a weather report but is also used in reference to a Form 1013, which is used for "commiting" a subject for mental evaluation.


10-35 was still listed as a Burglary in Progress when I left a couple of months ago. As far as I know, it is not "person down". I do know that it was rarely used.


10-37 simply means suspicious.


10-39 specifically means that normal radio traffic can be resumed.


There is no such thing as Code 48. It is Signal 48 and as far as I know is the only "signal" that Paulding County uses. It does mean deceased.


10-78 is supposed to be used as Officer Needs Assistance but some of the dispatchers use it differently,


10-81 is a status check. It has never been used to ask for a location.


10-85 means "delayed due to _____"


10-100 - well, it has been a few months since I worked there but in the 4 years I was employed there, I can never remember using this 10 code. However, I am pretty sure that it does not mean "SWAT Emergency". If or when I remember what it means, I will add a post...


As for Codes, the entire time I was employed there, there were only 3 codes. They are as follows:


Code 5: call holding (no officer available to respond) or holding for a backup unit (one unit enroute but needs a second unit when available)

Code 6: out of vehicle

Code 6M (or sometimes simply "6M"): meal break

Also any info on EmoryFlight freqs? Unfortunately they seem to be out here a lot lately.


I'm not sure that you will be able to listen to Emory Flight or Rescue Air. I believe they are unlike regular EMS and ambulance traffic, which have seperate radio systems to call into the ER's. I think that their communications will direct patch into the ER's for updated patient status reports... which is (as often as possible) kept confidential due to HIPPA, same as all EMS reports to ER's.
