In the United States, an "open carrier" ( also known as a "open microphone", "keyed microphone", or "open radio") is police parlance for a radio that has been inadvertently left on in Talk/Transmit mode. An open carrier stalls and paralyses broadcast traffic, leaving so-called "dead air" to reveal sudden gaps, smudges of hiss, gently swaying drones, beeping alerts, fragmented words, quick phrases, recessed conversations, and other unexpected artifacts. It's like butt-dialing everyone who is listening to the radio. See more
The show revolves around a rookie officer assigned to a patrol Division. LAPD Division patrol vehicles do not have front push bumpers, only Traffic Division vehicles have them.
