Doing some reading, the Adam, Boy, Charlie alphabet actually is called the APCO (Association of Public Safety Communications Officials) Phonetics alphabet and is apparently pretty common in law enforcement. Funny, all the times in the back of a squad car and I never noticed what their phonetics alphabet was. Anyway, who hasn't wanted to say "1-Adam-12, 1-Adam-12, 211 in progress. Will give chase. License plate Robert, Nancy, Paul, five, niner, zero."
