Do you know the real meaning behind this law enforcement jargon?

We're looking for your best effort, 10-4?

How often have you seen a crime drama in which the detective or investigator arrives at the scene of the crime and immediately asks for a run-down of the situation? Suddenly, the conversation becomes a mix of police jargon and definitions, helping the audience along as we learn exactly what's going on.

We want to know how much of the lingo you've picked up. Can you define this police jargon? It's a tough one, but give it a try and show us your police trivia smarts. Good luck!

Watch Adam-12 on MeTV!

I do fairly well on most of the quizzes being a child of the'60s, a huge classic TV fan and I've never gotten a 100%. Until now!! I'll let you guess from where my knowledge comes. 😉

Bravo, officer (or well-informed civilian)! You've clearly been paying attention.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the hardest, this quiz was a 1.
