This is one of those things where we need to suspend belief I guess. Mike was using a Galaxy 949 which is a standard CB radio. Pretty sure no police department has used CB for dispatch calls in the last 40 years, if ever.Were cops that easy to access with a basic cb/scanner? I guess if you know the lingo...
As someone who works in the industry, I often have to bite my tongue when I see how plots involving radio take liberties.This is one of those things where we need to suspend belief I guess.

Albuquerque PD uses a multi-site EDACS trunked radio system that would be impossible to access unless he had a radio specifically programmed for that system. No CB radio would be able to access that system.
Good point... that is the current system, but even in the 90's and early 2000's no city would use regular CB radio for dispatch calls.Then...or now?
Trunked radio systems have been around since the mid 90s, usually either to increase available bandwidth by allowing channel reuse quicker, or to frustrate scanner (radio scanners, not image scanners) users who listen in on police radios. (A radio scanner is simply a wideband radio receiver that can pick up a wide range of radio frequencies, often including analog TV, first responders, military, aviation, marine and other bands).Then...or now?
It's been previously established that she grew up in a small town on the Nebraska/Kansas border. It's why she's a KC Royals fan.Is there any significance to the Kim flashback being in Nebraska considering Gene winds up in Omaha?
