When you call the cops, what does dispatch say?

Recommended Posts

What an interesting question I never thought to ask...

Thanks for reviving this for us @Chunkyblaq. Like @NthnButAGoodTime said, we always appreciate proper use of the forums.

See, I always thought they were saying, "Copy, I'm en route," myself. Yours and @Randygbk's responses have given that more validity. 

I echo this statement. It's nice to see a newbie come in and immediately follow protocol. Kudos, sir. And as a side note, I will always chuckle whenever I speak your screen name aloud, @Chunkyblaq.  ^_^  What system do you play F13 on?

Thank you Randygbk for the welcome...I play F13 on PS4...but i want to invest in a gaming computer, I keep hearing its so awesome.

@Chunkyblaq, I'd like to take a moment to personally and publicly thank you, as a newbie, for following forum rules and using the search function to find an existing thread before posting a new topic, and to encourage you to make the circle complete by swinging over to the introduce yourself section to post the obligatory introduction.

I would like to say thank you for the warm welcome to this forum. I'm huge movie buff, but i always enjoyed horror films since my first one, the classic Friday the 13th...been a fan since 6 yrs of age.my sister was 15 or 16 when i first watched it with her while she babysitting me...scared the ? out of my britches...

Can anyone make out what dispatch says after you call the cops? I keep hearing "aroma therapy."

But I don't think that's it.

Definitely. I think it's coffee and aroma therapy. Weird. Think its code for OK, but I'm finishing my drink and spliff before I trail all the way out to that dive.

Cop 1: “ A 10-4-97? “

Cop 2: “ yep, Jason Voorhees. “

Cop 1: “ Oh God, not again! “

Cop 2: “ Yea we’re not entertaining that camp. Remember what happened to the Deputy back in 84? “ 

Cop 1: “ Your right, we’re just gonna be right outside one of the exits and wait for them to come to us. “

Cop 2: “ What do we do if the suspect is chasing one of the kids? “

Cop 1: “ If a kid is grabbed by the suspect, we don’t do anything. “

Cop 2: “ Alright, lets go. Wait, how long will the drive take? “

Cop 1: “ About 5 minutes. “

Cop 2: “ Okay lets go. “

10-4, 97

I'm checking some police codes and this is confusing.

10-4 basically is "Affirmative".

Code 10-97 means "On the scene."

The dude saying "10-4, 97" might be him shorthanding it to say that he is on the way and on the scene.

Just listening to the clip above, it really sounds like he's saying thirty-seven, rather than ninety-seven.

He says it somewhat sloppily if it's 37. Still, of the codes, 10-4 is "Understood/affirmative". Code 97 doesn't exist. 10-97 DOES exist, but it means "arrived at scene" and they don't do that until the timer is closed.

Code 37, by it's self, is Aggravated Assault.

The number at the end, be it 97 or 37, could probably just be the number of the officer or more likely the officers car number. He's affirming from dispatch that he acknowledges the call.

So, wouldn't "10-4, 37" just be the cop confirming? "Understood. Aggravated Assault"?

Yeah, but it sounds like a dialogue, so it make more sense if the answers is code 97 instead of 37, but maybe you're right.

But to @Daneasaur's point . . .

. . . so that wouldn't make sense at the initial call.

Exactly.

The conversation would henceforth be:

"Copy on the road there, Pete?" (as in, "did you get all that, my fellow cop Pete, who is on the road in our small ass town of about 50 people?")
"10-4, 37" ("Yup, someone is kicking someone else's ass angrily. Gimmie 5 or so minutes.")

Good point, I've missunderstood, I thought 97 means  they're going to the stage.

When I listen to it, the first part sounds sort of jumbled together, so it's hard to make out, but I can totally see it being, "copy on the road there Pete" and as for the last part, I hear, "10-4 is 97"

I hear it as "10-4 is 97" as well. I do not hear a 37 at all, but I'll listen for it next time.

I work in a small office and don't want to bother my coworkers with video clips. 

I'll listen later though.
