The Buckeye State Sheriff's Association (BSSA) radio codes are used by most law enforcement agencies in Ohio, including most county sheriff's offices, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, The Ohio Fire Marshal, and most village and township police departments. Fire departments and EMS agencies (usually when dispatched by law enforcement) also use the BSSA codes on a limited basis.
