Code Five – An NYPSD term that means a case is being kept quiet. Only key personnel are to know about the investigation. "Code Five meant she would report directly to her commander, and there would be no unsealed interdepartmental reports and no cooperation with the press. In essence, it meant she was on her own."[1] With Code Five, Eve had to do the door-to-door (questioning possible witnesses) herself.[2] Also called Level Five.[3]

Other codes include Code four and Code Red.
