In the NYPD the “central” dispatcher is affectionately referred to as Central. The radio car units are designated in alphabetical order for each precinct. The precinct itself is divided into sectors with a corresponding letter designation. For instance a sector car in the 67 th precinct might be referred to as sector 67 Adam for sector AB. Adam being the word chosen in military radio language to make a distinction of the letter A so as not to confuse it with any other letter.
