These vary by individual department, of which there are thousands, especially the 10 and 11 codes. 187 means "Homicide" because that references Penal Code 187 in California. It's probably not the same in all 50 states. "10-9" in some departments means "proceed to". In others it means "HURRY to" (without delay). "10-15" might mean "prisoner in custody" in some departments, it means "escort en route" in others and the escort need not be a prisoner.   Don't trust everything you read on the Internet. It's not always accurate. Police departments have try to get away from these codes for this reason and most radio traffic these days is in plain English. These codes were only necessary in the early days of radio technology when transmissions weren't clear or reliable and had to be kept short.

I always wonder why people would like to listen to this except criminals. I tried to listen once with an app, and it's very boring.
