During transmissions when state police patrol cars are being assigned to patrol areas (PAT4, PAT6, etc.), the dispatcher uses the term "straight out." In other words, trooper 765 might be assigned to "straight out 7." What does "straight out" mean?
I think that means don't come to HQ...go straight out to your sector and begin patrol. The CSP troopers take their cars home so they don't need to stop at HQ to pick up their patrol cars. You usually hear this when they are going to have a busy shift due to weather etc.
