An '''Emergency Vehicle Radio''', also known as an '''Emergency Radio''' and '''Police Radio''', is, as the name states, a special type of vehicle radio that is carried by most emergency vehicles in the [[Grand Theft Auto]] Series. Nearly all emergency vehicles have a police radio although there are some exceptions (ie. the [[Predator]]). Vehicles with the [[Police Computer]] added usually have an Emergency Vehicle Radio equiped with it.
Upon entering an Emergency Vehicle, such as a [[Police car]], an [[Ambulance]] or a [[Fire truck]], instead of having the regular radio stations enabled, the player will be able to listen to the emergency channel, where chatter and information are relayed from the emergency PC to the vehicles listening to them, so they can quickly head to the location indicated and do whatever they are tasked or asked to do.
When the player obtains a [[wanted level]] of three stars or more, it is best to hijack a law enforcement vehicle, as the player can use the Emergency Vehicle Radio to lisen to where the police are and what reinforcements are going to be sent over to deal with the player.
Police often uses codes (such as the 10-codes, 11-codes, and so on) to shorten their messages and refer to the events happening or relayed. However, in fiction, real 10-codes are rarely ever used, preferring to make their own or to use fictional/random codes. This is the case with GTA, as for example, a 10-37 translates to "Operator on duty", which probably doesn't really need an ambulance, or a 10-57 meaning "Missing person", made contradictory if a location is given right after. It is possible certain cases are merely parodies, but often codes given are nonsensical in fiction context.
