Police Codes
  • Phonetic Alphabet 02.10.2008

    Police use the Phonetic Alphabet:

    When communicating letters over the Police Radio or Scanners they need to reduce the possibility of errors in communication. So it is common to use words in place of letters so there is a more distinct difference between each pronunciation. This allows the listener of every department, Police, Fire, Military, etc to communicate as accurately as possible. This particular list is also known as the NY Police Alphabet.

    If you are becoming a Police Officer then you will be required to the Phonetic Alphabet. If listening to Police Scanners is what you want to do then learn each word in this list to help you understand what they are saying on your Police Scanner Radios. The next step is to learn the other sets of Police Codes. Have you ever thought of becoming a Police Officer? If you have not take just a moment to wonder what it would be like.
