Police Codes

Police Codes are sequences of numbers, and sometimes letters, to identify a crime, incident or instructions for police officers while on duty. These codes function as a way for police to communicate in a quick, uniform manner when fighting crime. Below is a list of police codes in the U.S. and which crimes they represent.

Please note: "500" codes are only radio codes that substitute for other code sections. Example: a "503" is not Penal Code section 503 (which is Embezzlement). All of the "500" codes, generally, involve vehicles and are thus grouped together (except 594, which is a legitimate Penal Code). Additionally, "390" (and variants) are also radio codes only (CPC 647(f) is the legally enforced section "public intoxication").
