: Again from "crime scene investigation"

: 1. one policeman asks another to take notes for him because he is going to be sick and she tells him:

: "I got it, go get some fresh air. I heard it on the scanner. A quadruple. Figured you'd might need a hand.

: my question: what does she means by qudruple, is it the voice intensified four times, on the scanner?

: 2. the chief tells his policewoman "Call dispatch, you tell my entire graveyard shift that I want them here ASAP, no exceptions."

: I wanted to know the meaning of "call dispatch". does it mean to announce immediatly, maybe on the scanner?

: Thank you very much beforehand!

1. I think it probably means four people dead or a four-car wreck.

2. He wants her to call the dispatcher and tell him/her to put out a message on the police radio/scanner to all the shift.
