Police Procedure: Office calling for ‘standby backup’?
Character: LAPD Officer/Lieutenant
Some details: Before
Dispatch, not having heard back from or being able to raise Lt. Walker, places the [specific term for a ‘standby backup call’].
I’ve looked through all the ‘law enforcement’ related tags on the site and have not gone through any posts over on the ‘ask a cop’ site because scrolling through all the aforementioned entries on this site has already made me incredibly dizzy (I have an inner ear disorder) and ‘ask a cop’ seems to have *no* tags whatsoever. I have absolutely no idea as to even where to begin searching for this topic.
I *did* look at the Ten Code And Police Radio Codes and came up with the following possibles:
10-59 Security check./Malicious mischief </span></span>
10-63 Prepare to copy.</span></span>
10-66 Suspicious person.</span></span>
957 Delayed response of __ minutes. </span></span>
Code 8 Request cover/backup. </span></span>
Code 20 Officer needs assistance</span></span>
Any help in this would be much appreciated! Thanks :)
