What Does Adam Henry Mean In Cop Talk Califonia

On a police scanner-what does a cop mean by '16 D-David'? What do the numbers stand for? Not the 10-4 etc..

In most (not all) departments, the first number indicates either the agency if there is more than one contiguous agency either utilizing the same radio or overlapping jurisdictions, or more typically, it could indicate the shift (3 being Shift #3 of 3 eight hour shifts for instance) or in many departments it means the beat number if the city/county is split into sections or "beats." The "adam" in many departments signifies the type of unit - many use "adam" to mean a two-officer unit; "sam" usually means a sergeant vehicle, some call detectives "george" units, etc. The last number is usually the specific unit or vehicle designation. That is the one identifier of the specific car so dispatch knows the exact car they are referring to. Specific officers are assigned a specific unit number at each shift, so dispatch and the supervisors also know which officers are attached to that unit. So "3 adam 86" might mean beat #3, two-officer unit, unit identifer #86. Hope that helps!

What is the significance/ meaning of this adam smith quote?

First of all, I disagree with Adam Smith. I see things as "the poor's greatest expenses are the necessaries of life. The rich create the luxuries and vanities of life." I say this because if everyone has access to library, and everyone has access to a loan, then they can be self-made. Depending on others to be successful is the downfall of society. You MAKE your own luck. If you don't make any, you are unlucky. The amount contributed to the public expense should be the same amount from each person in the same conditions. The amount from each person in a condition should be proportional(percentage wise), because that is fair. As a last note, many rich people donate large volumes of their income, which means that they DO already give more than their apportionment, most likely more than someone with lower socio-economic status. This means that this condition is being met, just without the force of the government. When the government starts taking more from the rich, the rich will give less, and there is dependence on charity, so this would be a major disadvantage to taking even more from the rich. In effect, the "magic hand" would be working if the government took even more from the rich, the poor would just receive less charity.

What does a cop mean by "3 adam 86 " when talking over the police radio.?

In most (not all) departments, the first number indicates either the agency if there is more than one contiguous agency either utilizing the same radio or overlapping jurisdictions, or more typically, it could indicate the shift (3 being Shift #3 of 3 eight hour shifts for instance) or in many departments it means the beat number if the city/county is split into sections or "beats."

The "adam" in many departments signifies the type of unit - many use "adam" to mean a two-officer unit; "sam" usually means a sergeant vehicle, some call detectives "george" units, etc.

The last number is usually the specific unit or vehicle designation. That is the one identifier of the specific car so dispatch knows the exact car they are referring to. Specific officers are assigned a specific unit number at each shift, so dispatch and the supervisors also know which officers are attached to that unit.

So "3 adam 86" might mean beat #3, two-officer unit, unit identifer #86.

RE:

Is there any symbolic code in police talk that has connection to when John Baker on "CHiPs" would say "Seven Mary three." I know that police officers have their own CB radio lingo, but I'm just curious as to what each lingo refers to.

How does Asperger's syndrome manifest in children?

Logically, the older a person is the more clearly Aspergers should be to manifest and diagnose.The practical reality is the opposite.The focus is entirely on children, as young as possible, looking for disability rather than ability, looking for autism rather than Aspergers.It has the practical effect of denying everything learned about Aspergers in the last 30 years and reverting to all the fake beliefs surrounding child autism.Aspergers is a different condition than the fake US concocted autism.Aspergers is something real and autism is a garbage term.If people looked for the characteristics more obvious in adult Aspergers in children, that would be progress.If they focus on child autism to explain adult Aspergers, that is not progress.

What do "Robert" and "Charlie" mean when spoken on a police scanner?

These are part of Voice procedure.Robert is the police phonetic code letter for R, short for "Received." The Military uses "Roger."Charlie is the police code letter for C, short for "Copy."It's just a matter of preference which is used, but both are just acknowledgements that the message was clearly received.For the record, the Willco part of Roger-Willco is short for "Will Comply."So, why not just say "copy?" Well, radio channels tend to distort words, and tend to cut off the start of words as squelch is broken. This is why the phonetic alphabet was chosen; it has specific phonemic qualities that withstand the kind of distortion you get on the radio channel. While it may be difficult to understand the word "copy" under interference conditions, the word "charlie" may be more understandable. The explosive "ch" has better squelch-breaking qualities than the softer "co."

I noticed that police officers would use Adam for A, Boy for B, Charlie for C, and David for D in some movies when car plates were referred. Does every letter in the English alphabet have something like that? If so, what are the rest? Is there any specific meaning of calling them so?

Prior answers reflect today's conventions.When I was a kid (and as reflected in WWII movies), the US military's (joint Army/Navy) phonetic alphabet - or, at least, the first few letters - was reasonably well known:Able,  Baker,  Charlie,  Dog,  Easy,  Fox,  George,  How,  Item,  Jig, King,  Love,  Mike,  Nan,  Oboe,  Peter,  Queen,  Roger,  Sail,  Tare, Uncle,  Victor,  William,  X-Ray,  Yoke,  Zebra.Fascinating story about development of this alphabet at The Able Baker story (minor reformatting):Date: Mon, 26 Jul 1999 14:16:25 +1000From: "John Alcorn, VK2JWA" Subject: Re: US Army Air Corps Phonetic alphabet used in ETO . . .Up until early 1941 the US Army, Navy and other services used different  phonetics. They were mostly similar but were not the same and each service jealously guarded their own version and would not agree on a common version.The service chiefs could see problems with this in the inevitable involvement in WW2. The chief signals representatives of all services were "invited" to a conference at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where they were put in a "lock in" with all the necessary references and material, dictionaries, pads etc.They were told that they would be fed etc. but that the door would beotherwise locked and that no one could leave until they had derived and agreed upon a common phonetic alphabet to be used for all services. This they eventually did.  This is the Joint Army/Navy (JAN) phonetic alphabet used when the USentered WW2. Able,  Baker,  Charlie,  Dog,  Easy,  Fox,  George,  How,  Item,  Jig, King,  Love,  Mike,  Nan,  Oboe,  Peter,  Queen,  Roger,  Sail,  Tare, Uncle,  Victor,  William,  X-Ray,  Yoke,  Zebra. This they used but it differed from the other allies, principally British, and so some confusion was caused. A common alphabet had to be adopted. This was derived and came into force on the 1st January, 1943.It was the same as that above with a few changes which were -Golf,  Sugar,  Zed.   'Zed' became 'Zebra' in 1945. . . . -- John W.Alcorn, VK2JWA  Ph.: +61 02-6621521733 Spring St.       Email : jalcorn@nor.com.auLISMORE, NSW. 2480.   http://www.nor.com.au/community/...
