Guys.

I have started listening to the Kalgoorlie Online scanner, and, due to coming from the eastern states, there are some matters being discussed that I don't fully understand.
I was wondering if someone could point me in the appropriate direction.

I am looking for a list of codes / abbreviations, but not the incident codes.
For instance, they talk about VRO.

VRO = Violence Restraining Order I think.

Codes etc can be seen at http://warsug.info/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3

Thanks.

That makes sense.

However, the link that you provided only gives the actual job codes.
I was wondering if there was a list of abbreviations and other colloquial terms.
I heard MDL used earlier, which I assume is Motor Driver's Licence.

Can someone advise what the 800-series WA Police callsigns are ?

That could make sense.

The list that I have is probably five or six years old now.
It does have a space for "Portables and Beats", but it is blank. It does come right after the 700-series of numbers.

Guys.

Is KG still Eucla, as per the list that I have ?

I just heard Kalgoorlie Base calling KG103, and it seemed to be local.

I may be wrong but there may be a typo on the list you have. I believe KE is Eucla and KG is Kalgoorlie. They are next to each other on the list and may have been transposed. It makes sense with the naming conventions KE=Eucla and KG=KalGoorlie

That would certainly make a lot of sense.

The list that I have is dated 2003, posted in 2005, and is the one that is on the applicable forum in the group.

With respect, perhaps it should be totally updated, if not accurate.
