    Hey Ann, Many communities or counties, states or regional radio systems have their own codes. So really only folks right in your area are going to be able to help you probably with those. Any other Maine-iacs on board???

    After looking at your post again I just saw the "ISO". What's that stand for???

    Kind of reaching here but in Boston and some other larger departments you will hear disposition codes on the air. Codes that are used for internal reporting of what the responding officers found or did. Boston refers to theirs as missiles... Give me a missile, ( I think it's short for miscellaneous ). The officer responds with a 15Paul or something like that. These might stand for the services rendered or nothing found etc. These are codes that the dispatcher is using to close out their response screens or cards and will help their supervisors eventually construct the log. If the officers have a supplemental report they need to file they will be assigned a number for that. The busier the department the more these things become check boxes or miscellaneous codes rather than written reports for every little thing. Now in Boston and many places there is much less of this stuff on the air because it is usually all handled on their in car computers. Just logging on the air and off in Boston used to be a huge amount of radio traffic especially near ****s changes. Now often not a peep is heard. At the same time I have also heard radio interaction that indicates that cruisers have gone long periods of time with accidental never being logged on. Quiet day for them... comments etc.

    So I don't know what ISO stands for but I was guessing that it may be some sort of Incident report thing???

    I hear mainly the sheriff and the state police use these codes like they will say"I will be code 7" which i figured out to be off for lunch, code 5 is in route so cose 5 25 is in route to (i think)off duty,i have heard code 6 which i figured was out for fuel since when he said it i was also at the same fuel station and he got out and got fuel, code 4 is disregard, so i have figured some out but there are so much more and was wondering if there was anyone from maine maybe police dept that had these codes. thanx for the responses

    This was why DHS asked that Inter-op be plain language and not codes.

    Post Maine State Police Files & Codes

    Well, what you report hearing as a "5 25" is probably a "File 25". The following is an extremely old list of Maine State Police "File" numbers. There is also an even older list of Maine State Police "Codes" (not to be confused with the Maine statewide ten codes.) The code list refers to Troop B as Gray - it is now Maine Turnpike units and the former Turnpike Troop (G) is gone.

    Unlike the ten codes which are widely used by Maine law enforcement agencies, these "Files" & "Codes" are primarily MSP. However, other agencies maybe using them or they may mean something entirely different. Most LE agencies have at least a few informal codes that are easy to figure out like "Code L" for Lunch, etc.

    Again, these are Maine State Police and VERY old, possibly changed or out of date:

    FILE 1 STOLEN VEHICLE
    FILE 2 MOTOR VEHICLE RECORD LISTING
    FILE 3 MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT INFORMATION
    FILE 4 HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT
    FILE 5 WANTED PERSON
    FILE 6 MISSING PERSON
    FILE 7 BURGLARY OR LARCENY
    FILE 8 ARMED ROBBERY
    FILE 9 MISSING PROPERTY
    FILE 10 STOLEN PROPERTY
    FILE 11 ASSAULT
    FILE 12 HOMICIDE
    FILE 13 GENERAL INFORMATION
    FILE 14 ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION
    FILE 15 REQUEST FOR IMFORMATION
    FILE 16 LOST OR STOLEN MOTOR VEHICLE PLATE
    FILE 18 CANCEL LAST MESSAGE
    FILE 24 LEGAL INFORMATION
    FILE 25 MISCELLANUOUS INFORMATION

    CODE 1 USING VEHICLE ON DAY OFF
    CODE 2 USING VEHICLE OFF SHIFT
    CODE 3 OFF ON PAGER
    CODE 4 OFF ON PORTABLE
    CODE 5 OFF AT HOME USE
    CODE 6 OFF AT HEADQUARTERS
    CODE 7 OFF AT TROOP A ALFRED
    CODE 8 OFF AT TROOP B GRAY
    CODE 9 OFF AT TROOP C SKOWHEGAN
    CODE 10 OFF AT TROOP D THOMASTON
    CODE 11 OFF AT TROOP E ORONO
    CODE 12 OFF AT TROOP F HOULTON
    CODE 13 OFF AT TROOP G CROSBY FARM/MAINE TURNPIKE
    CODE 14 OFF AT TROOP J EAST MACHIAS
    CODE 15 CID III BANGOR
    CODE 16 TRAFFIC GARDINER
    CODE 17 GARDINER ANNEX
    CODE 18 STATE HOUSE
    CODE 19 MCJA
    CODE 20 MARINE PATROL
    CODE 21 MDEA
    CODE 22 WARDEN SERVICE
    CODE 23 LIQUOR ENFORCEMENT
    CODE 24 FIRE MARSHALL
    CODE 25 OFF DUTY (OFF CAD)
