I have that app on my phone, its amazing the amount of non stop action that comes across the scanner in Chicago. The cops there don’t use 10 codes either. I thank God I live in the middle of nowhere in Nebraska, and am allowed to own guns.

Sounds like the gang members need marksmanship training. Any stimulus money left out there? Or did it all go to bundler-owned windmills in Finland?

It really is amazing, isn't it. You can listen to just about any radio station in the world as long as they stream on the net. These dang phones are just too amazing these days.
On Chicago, I agree with you it makes it much easier to follow along when they don't use 10 codes.
Now about Nebraska, while I'm certain it is a nice place and far better than the south side of Chicago, I have never been partial to level 5 thunderstorms and tornadoes.
Just what does the middle of nowhere in Nebraska look like? Would this be close?

I'm listening right now, through an online scanner, things always jumping in.. 'Chicago..Chicago, my hometown' - hat tip Frank Sinatra ;-)
But yes the CPD does use '10 Codes', though not as often like in other places.
- '10-Adam' is 'Animal Bite (the 10), and Adam is; Not Bona Fide Incident. And 10-Ida is 'Animal Bite'. 'Removed to hospital'
- '10-4' has two meanings. '10' = 'Acknowledge'. 4 = 'Two Man(person) Unit (patrol car).
- '10-99' is similar to 10-4 but from a One Man (person) Car, that's the '99' part. But most times they'll just drop the '10' and respond '99'. Note: If a female cop is '99' she'll always get back-up on certain calls. But male Cops will not. (ain't equality great)
- And '10-1' you never want to hear, it's: 'Officer Needs Help'. Then holy hell breaks loose and like 20 Beat Cars will respond. (and sirens start blaring)
The most frequent response you hear from the Beat Cop is '19-Paul' (boring). '19' = Other, Misc Incident. 'Paul' = Other Police Service. In short they found nothing and/or did nothing when they got there. (sometimes very late)CPD Radio Codes
Note I'm no way slamming the CPD. They are BADLY under-manned, short abut 1,500 Street Cops. And their equipment is absolute junk, including the squad cars (Daley F--ked the Cops every chance he could, he borderline hated them). They also HAVE to 'play social worker and limo driver' for 'distressed citizens' - like give granny a ride to wherever if it's not too far away or make Jazmine go to school)
I wouldn't be a Chi Cop for $250K a year.
(plus Chi Cops HAVE TO live in that city, always have. but 'way back' that was okay, not now)
