Important Note
On 05-AUG-2013, the St. Mary's Co. government switched to an all-digital communications system. As such, the old analog scanners are no longer able to pickup broadcasts. Furthermore, the police have encrypted their channels. Therefore, the public can only listen to fire and EMS broadcasts via a digital scanner.

10 Codes:

The police and emergency services personnel speak using 10 codes.  This makes communications more concise.  The best known codes are "10-4" meaning "OK, I understand" and "What's your 10-20?" as in "where are you at now?"  In order to follow the conversations, you will need to know the codes.  A reference sheet is here.
