Our local force ops have just changed over from the old '10' codes to
new 'CODE nn' type incident codes. Has anyone got any information on
these. Some are easy to spot like CODE ZERO which replaced '10-9'.
Maybe they vary on a force-force basis, but I shouldn't think they're
too much different. (some of the old 10 codes had regional
variations).

Also, if anyone has any deciphering on possible jargon used by CFB
(Affectionately known as 'trumpton' :) ) then that would be useful too.

The kilo codes recently posted for County Ambulance Service were very
well received here.

With thanks

I have a list at home, I'll update later - but the ferw I can remember are.

State 00 - Officer needs immediate assistance.
State 01 - On duty
State 02 - Available/Resuming
State 04 - Meal Break
State 05 - En route to incident.scene
State 06 - On scene.
State 12 - Confidential Message. "Are you out of ear shot?"

These are as per Cambridgeshire Const'bly who also have a list of three
didgit codes. I'll post the full list when I've found it.

Are the ## codes unchanged nationwide (ie, no regional variances)? Are
scottish codes different to English ones?

Charlie

There are regional variations even within Scotland. Strathclyde is one of
the few forces to use them in a big way. Most of the rest just use plain
speech.

Go back a few days potings to get the Strathclyde ones, if not I can mail
them to you.
