Not that it has anything to do with trains, but NSW Police do not have "codes",

Except heard on a Police radio "Can you attend Central Railway re a non-compliant male with Railcorp security"

Which decoded ,means a male that hasn't paid for a ticket and refuses to supply any ID!

Nick, what state authority are you listening to? If it is Vic Police, then they do have a series of codes for the cars etc.

Why would anyone have a good reason to know this? What's the purpose?

So he can listen in to Police transmissions I guess. Any self-respecting journalist (if such a thing exists) would probably know the codes.

I sometimes wonder why people ask these questions too when there are search engines to ask.... a quick google on "police scanning codes" revealed a complete list of Vic Police radio codes at http://www.scanaustralia.bigpondhosting.com/police/vic/Codes99.html

I'd suggest that there's a few gunzels who have been reported as a 78, possibly even a 45  Smile

The codes in victoria are for the purpose of VKC to be able to communicate with the cars with out realising too much info. they realate to every thing other then what section of vicpol the car comes from but i can help you with that too but only in a PM. anymore info pm me i can also help with call signs and stuff too.


Cheers

There was a general purpose scanning book that my father purchased approx 10 odd years ago that listed, amongst other info, frequencies for police (and the railways!) and a list of what the codes stood for. This was a publicaly available publication. There may be a modern day equivilant available.

And what codes do you think they are?
Besides "signal 1" (officer needs urgent help)
News  to me after 15 years in the job?

We are about to start "code red" next month state-wide, which only means they are expiditing to a job, but its about to start.

Correct John....well to an extent  

Codes...hmm....Well if I called my usual call sign "Greater Metro 10", then that is a code to anyone who actually works in the job or knows anything about the job.  That is the same as if (for example) I called "Harbourside 200" (Highway Patrol), 'Dog 28' (Dog Squad), 'Delta 35' (Vickings...usually), or 'Hume 36' (General duties).....the list goes on.

But what would I know....I only worked in VKG (Communications) for 1 year when I was 18-19 years olf, and have now been an os_car_fer of law for 9 years.

What does SCO mean exavtly???  Desk jocky!    I SOLUTE YOU!!

Furthmore "John", "SCO", "NSW Police", before stating that you have worked in the police for 15 years, how about you update your online profile!

Unless I am awfully mistaken....your a "Cameraman".  Now, unless you work in the police media unit (which i doubt), I find it hard to believe that you are a police "cameraman".  Many may argue whether there is such a thing!

Just to answer your question:
Graded Cameraman by trade for 23 years, and still do corporate/comerical work. (as approved by the NSWP)  Also a Senior Comms Officer for NSWP and is just a 'job', not a career, 3 days / week that pays the bills leaving me time to shoot things I enjoy ...  with a camera that is. But the public service is driving me mad, hopefully retirement will be sooner rather than later, or back to filming nature programs.

There are "Police Cameraman", they are sworn police officers used for gathering evidence. I have no involvement with them.

Johnboy,  is it the public service driving you mad or the fact the the NSW police is run by inexperienced, 25 year old Sergeants?!?

bit of both. My section is not really bothered with young people in high ranks but they do ask us for a lot of advise. Government polices and practices in general have gone down hill with all the do-gooders

Bring bad the good ol days. You did something wrong, you got a clip over the ear 8)  ... oooo.... did I say that?!?
 
Breaking Point Assistant Commissioner

...that still happens... exept now we use a boot up the smeg...

It is amazing how effective a few good solid boots in the ribs is!!  Hence the "move along" direction....THUD!
