10-Codes and Lingo

Omaha Police Precincts and Fire Stations

OPD Scanner 101

  • You are listening to a mix of 5 different conversations at once (4 Omaha Precincts and Douglas County Sheriff) so it’s a mix of what’s going on all over.
  • Officers are assigned to districts and generally patrol that area, but usually have to go all over the city due to call volume.
  • Officers are either 10-8 (in service, available for calls) or 10-7 (out of service, not available for calls).
  • Dispatchers end their conversation with the time, in 24 hour hour format.
  • Officers end their conversation by saying “Clear” (instead of 10-4, over and out, etc).
