xxxxxThis is an IC channel and should be used for Radio Communications Only.
Always begin your initial comment with your Call Sign, and always refer to your intended audience by Callsign if possible. (Eg. 3P123 to Control. 3P456 to 1D123. 1D532 to all available units.)
Avoid using the given or last names of officers in the clear. The Police Radio broadcasts on a frequency civilians can overhear. A certain level of opaqueness to the communication is necessary for officer and operational safety.
When using the radio, you should contact dispatch center first using this format: <Callsign> to Control
Example Radio Communication for an officer arrive that just arrived on at Motor Vehicle Accident.
3P027 to Control
Control to 3P027 go ahead
3P027 to Control, mark me arriving at the motor vehicle accident at Mead and Sheehan.
Control to 3P027 Received.
