10-8 code means in service and he's always offering up good advice so I'm going with that.

You may know it by another name.

Of course, while many folks are familiar with the 10 codes, few are familiar with the 12 codes.

Developed for communication between officers to the Patrolman level, it includes usefull shorthand sort of items, such as

12-45 Do you realize how stupid THAT was?

12-60 All units copied your last transmission, and we think you are an idiot
