Code 4

I hate to sound like a whiny bitch, but will someone please explain to Barbara that regardless of the way NOPD uses the term "Code 4", we use it to mean the scene is safe to approach. I know it doesn't mean a scene is completely safe (what scene ever is?), but when dispatch tells us 'NOPD has a Code 4' it means that's it's ok to go in, right? NOPD can say "Code Giraffe" for all I care. NOHD Code 4 means it's under control, relatively safe, move in.
Also Babs seems to be under the impression that we have all of NOPD's dispatch channels on our radios. I haven't had PD on my radio for 9 years, other than the SPEC channels.
Don't worry, I'm Code 4.
I hope.

You could not be more correct Sean. I have had several instances where I was told something be her and it was the total opposite of what we knew to be the policy.
