Tango: Transit Guard
Delta: Railway patrol Vehicle
Then there are the stations callsigns. Only stations capable of being manned have callsigns for example Joondalup.

Also what is Perth Assist?

Anything special about them, or is that just the name of the Tango's at Perth station?

Also wondering about VKI and the terminology used on IMS (outcomes and dockets etc.)

Hoping to have the above list updated and completed with all the information someone would need to understand what they're listening to :)

Nothing special about them just that there Tansit Officers Assisting fellow Transit Officers and protecting passengers.

IMS(Incident Management System)
Outcome i do beleive it how man times the POI has been in dealings with the Police
Dockets are how many charges the POI has.

VKI is what tranno's say instead of POC (Police Operations Centre)... Outcomes merely refers to the number of court outcomes - i.e. The number of charges that have been resolved in court ("Smith has 48 outcomes including assault, stealing, etc")... Docket ordinarily will simply referred to either having one or not. Each person who has been charged with an offence will be allocated a docket number. A person without a docket will be referred to as a "cleanskin"...
