Transcript of Discourse Community Project

10 Codes
Police officers use very specific codes when talking with each other and with their dispatcher. The codes are used for brevity. As you listen to the radio traffic playing, you will hear codes such as “1125” which is coding for any type of road hazard. You may have an 1125 vehicle or 1125 debris blocking the #1 lane (which is the fast lane on the freeway). You may hear an officer broadcast a “415” – this is a disturbance of some type- it can be verbal and/or physical. The officers will put out a “code 4” to let their radio know that they have their situation under control and are not requiring immediate backup. Some of these codes are universal amongst police, sheriff and highway patrol and some are specific to each area. So the next time you overhear traffic coming from a police radio or scanner you will know that an “1125v in the #1 lane needs an 1185 due to a 20002” really means that a vehicle blocking the fast lane needs a tow truck because they were involved in a hit and run collision. Thanks for listening!

The Law Enforcement Community
This is how they communicate
The following is a press release- a common form utilized by police agencies in order to disperse information to other agencies, the public, and the media. These are generally completed after incidents such as fatalities, hazardous material spills, fires and other unusual and extraordinary events. The writing is very straightforward and objective. The officer will obtain written and verbal statements from witnesses on scene and will prepare their summary, based on these statements, their own observations, measurements , and expertise from training and prior experience. Since this is a professional document, the officers will not express emotion or personal opinion regarding the incident.
My Reflection
The law enforcement community is near and dear to my heart so I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself within the community throughout this class. I was able to focus on a subject that I believe is extremely important to our communities, and that is, the relationships between police and their neighborhoods. Without a strong and positive relationship, especially in low-income and crime-ridden areas, the residents suffer, and more so, the children trying to thrive suffer. Thanks for taking the time to watch my presentation..
