The expression “10 Radio Codes” does not in any way mean that security guards have only 10 codes they can use to share information and messages very quickly with each other, the control centre, police and other emergency services; it is simple shorthand for the language used to make communication fast and clear, especially when it comes to the protection of people and property.
Safety and security is a serious matter for us all, however, where we get to learn just one set of numbers and alphabet, security guards are given a completely different skill set that is used to maintain secure communications, based on the phonetic alphabet.
Most of us are aware of the growing concern regarding just how much of our information is sitting out in cyberspace, and how susceptible all our forms of communication are to hacking, which then leads to digital theft and fraud, making it easier to understand that in the safety and security forces, communication between security guards, on the ground level, needs to be kept as secure as it is in the loftier levels of security.
10 Radio Codes is exactly what is needed by any security guard, whether as an armed guard responding to all types of emergency situations, or as an on-site guard. Information has to be very quick and universally understood by response teams and security guards, without leaking anything to the general public.
For instance, should a security guard be faced with a situation that could be developing into something that will affect hundreds of lives, he will know what to do to quickly, coordinate further security, and to alert EMT’s to be on standby, before anyone one else is even aware of any trouble ahead.
In crowds like this, if the word gets out the wrong way, panic can result in crippling injuries and death, which makes the 10 Radio Codes an essential communication tool for security guards, security companies, police, fire department and other rescue services.
The 10 radio codes for security guards consist of the number 10, followed by a letter taken from the phonetic alphabet, based on the Latin language and adopted by security forces worldwide as a form of universal secure communication.
We’ve all heard codes like ’10-4’ in favourite series or movies, and even we know that it means ‘Roger’, and we definitely recognise terms like Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, but that’s as far as it goes for us. But for security guards using two-way radios and mobile phones, ’10 radio codes’ is a lifesaving language to learn.
