Crime & Law Enforcement Issues & Death Penalty/SWAT radio communication


Hi Luis,

On a raid, between the team on the ground and the commander, are call signs with numbers e.g. Bulldog 1 used?  Would the commander have his own call sign? Thank you.

There are always call signs used for each individual on a team. But unlike movies these will be mainly for identification and also radio brevity, so rather than names like Bulldog 1 it would be  F-1 (Fox 1), C-1 (Charlie 1) etc...  
I hope this helps.
