    How? Because I'd like for people to understand what they're listening to?

    Yeah, OK.

    Down here in Florida, they use both 10 codes and signal codes, talk about confusing. Even the phonetics are completely different.

    When they call out a 10-50 it's a traffic stop and I know 10-50 there is an accident, kind of strange hearing 10-50s all day long.

    The dispatchers here are interesting, just heard an officer call in for the Gators score and the dispatcher not only gave her the score, but said she was rooting for the other team.

    Hey, it's laid back! The dispatchers and police here have a very good working relationship. Most of the officers know most of the dispatchers, and vice versa.

    Reconstruction?

    Is that used only for fatalities?

    Fatal or if they think it could become fatal
    also for departmentals (police involved) even a fender bender in a parking lot.

    OK everybody, I added a new section within the post for fire departments. This is the response types by call. If you've ever wondered how certain things get dispatched, this should (hopefully) sort it out. This is for St. Mary's County only.
