    I've never been on a police force, but I drove an ambulance and we used their codes. It's funny, once you start using them it's like a different language. You just get used to it and know it. I still remember some of them and I haven't used them in 30+ years.

    Try googleing: scanner, monitoring, police codes, etc. They're not public, but the hobby of scanning's got websites where users submit the info. Ya can often deduce the meaning from the context. a "20-40" (made up code) call, then the officer saying it was a false alarm and the business is secure..... "20-40" would be business burglary/security alarm...
