In an effort to protect Public Safety personnel, DO NOT post details about an ongoing SWAT incident or undercover operation in progress.
Details include frequencies, talk groups, exact address, officer movements, and another other information that might put an officers safety at risk.
Doing so is a perfect example of why many cities have taken Police traffic and especially SWAT incidents encrypted.
At the conclusion of the event, it is okay to post any news from the situation.

ETOH - when used in a medical or legal context, is an abbreviation for ethanol (i.e. alcohol)

HTO - Habitual Traffic Offender

Status of "May apply for Colorado license" will appear for surrendered or expired licenses when driver has no pending issues at state.  

THIS DRIVING RECORD IS INCOMPLETE, AWAITING HISTORY FROM PREVIOUS STATE - This message will appear on a CO record any time a driver applies for a CDL. It will appear whether the driver is from another state, or if it is the first time a CO driver has applied for a CDL. If the issue date is more than about a month old, and there is no additional information on the history part of the record from another state, then there is nothing else to be added to the record. CO does not have a process to check on the record after the message is added, so the message will not be taken out of the record.  

CANCEL/DENY OJ-UR NOT CLEAR - OJ-UR stands for Outstanding Judgement-Unpaid Referee.  

ADULT CDL 60 DAY EC/PS TEMPORARY - It is important to note that this is for an "Adult CDL (Commercial Driver License)" driver. The EC/PS indicates that this person was stopped for an alcohol offense, driver's license taken, and a 60 day temporary permit was issued subsequent to a hearing request. The EC/PS relates to Express Consent / Per Se which is legal (from statute) that basically means that a person who applies for a driving privilege in Colorado gives their express consent to an alcohol test if driving stop is alcohol related.  

Revoke Refusal - Blood alcohol refusal. This revocation takes precedence over all suspensions.  

Deny Driver License Compact - Driver had problem out of state. Reinstatement fee required in Colorado to clear up.  

'ECS' - Express consent - The Express Consent Law requires that any driver submit to a chemical test if a police officer has reasonable ground to believe the person is driving under the influence or that their ability to operate a vehicle is impaired due to alcohol, drugs or both.  

Adult instruction permit - Written test has been taken but not driving test.  

FTA - Failure to Appear  

SUSPENSION/REVOCATION DEFINITION - A revoked license is when the state takes your privileges away. The penalty is more severe than a suspension. In some cases, you need to retest to get the license back along with paying the necessary fees. A suspension is when they suspend your privileges, but you don’t have to necessarily retest. The license can be suspended more easily than revoked.  

Implied Consent - Under an implied consent law, any person who operates a motor vehicle in the state is deemed to have previously consented to a DUI chemical test at the time that they signed the papers to receive their drivers license. Violations that specify "implied consent" can range from failing the DUI test to refusing to take the test, depending upon the applicable state statute.  

NCIC - National Crime Information Center. This database is checked along with the NDR database on some drivers.  

Colorado tries to rely on "Plain Speak" and not "10 Codes" when it is used, dispatchers drop the 10 from the code.
I've Highlighted the more common codes used.
