PostSubject: Official Handbook for LSPD   Fri Aug 19, 2011 4:32 am



Los Santos Police Department
Official Handbook


1).Introduction

This is the Official LSPD (Los Santos Police Department) Handbook, This handbook must be read thoroughly for all Members of the LSPD and people who are planning to join the LSPD. This is basic acknowledgment about the LSPD.

2).LSPD Role

The LSPD have a main role in San Andreas, To protect and to serve for the city, They will be attending to all LEO's that are in danger and helping out civilians. Their boundaries are Red County. They are only allowed to enter Los Santos when given permission from the Government, the LSPD (Los Santos Police Department) or the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation)

3).Citizen Safety

At first your safety is always important so you must Call the 911 when you are in Danger at All Times! Firstly the LSPD Will respond to the 911 call you will give and if the situation is critic and more LEO force is needed then an LEO unit may call the LSPD. ((/call 911))

4).When you see the LSPD

When you see an LSPD member no matter the ranking the Officer may ask you a few questions or you may be a suspect. In order for no lethal force to be used then you must always comply and not try and attempt an evade.

5. Los Santos Police Department, Officers

The Los Santos Police Department are always on their duty at the Los Santos Police Station doing their best to serve the city as much as they can and they are always on duty ready to serve and to protect.

Lockers:

Quote :
/lspd

The locker rooms of the LSPD are going to essentially be your home. Everything you will ever need can be found in there. Be sure to be in the correct uniform, have any weapons that you have permissions for, and be on duty! You are allowed to go off-duty if you talk with a High Command member, however don't get it mixed up! Being off-duty is only allowed with permission, if you don't know how to differentiate, stay on duty.

Faction Radio:

Quote :
/r

The faction radio is used to talk to all members of the LSPD. Anybody may use this radio, however, the radio is IC. You may talk OOC if you put brackets around your words. Also, be sure not to power-game or meta-game any calls! If your being held hostage, don't scream over radio "HELP I'M BEING ROBBED!" Roleplay, the robbers would hear you and do something about it. So make sure that if your in a similar situation, don't power-game the radio.

Department Radio:

Quote :
/d

This radio frequency is used to talk to all departments. This includes LSPD, Senate, FBI, NG, MPS, LSFMD,LSSD and SASP. You must be a Sergeant or above to use department radio without permission. If you are found using department radio without permission as a Corporal or below, you will be dealt with. Department radio is for necessary communications, no chatting is allowed (OOC chat). That is the main reason we have a rule for its usage. Whenever you are delivering a Most Wanted you always have permission to use the Department radio. In all other circumstances ask for permission first to use the Department radio! A Sergeant or above can provide you permission.

There is a server rule about using OOC in department radio. If you are found using any OOC, the admins have all rights to prison/jail you. Keep it strictly IC, or don't complain when you get punished. Others may use OOC in department radio, who cares, don't join in.

Gate Control:

Quote :
/gate

The gate is a common day use for all Officers. We have two gates: one leading to the impound lot and one leading to the garage. Make sure that both gates stay closed at all times. They only time they should be open is when an authorized vehicle needs to pass by.

Always look behind you when going through the gates. If someone is behind you, keep the gate open and let them come in aswell. Also, make sure that the driver is the only person who operates the gate. This will prevent confusion and prevent the passenger from closing the gate on the car.

Megaphone:

Quote :
/m

This is a very useful tool for car chases. The megaphone can go a good distance due to its loudness. Make sure to keep it professional, we don't need civilians hearing your conversation from a block away.

Another thing, discuss ahead of time who is going to operate the megaphone. Two people screaming into it during a car chase isn't necessary. If your the driver, let your passenger operate it so you can concentrate on driving!

Wanted List:

Quote :
/wanted

The wanted list is, as you guessed, a list of wanted people. This will show each and ever wanted member in the city and what their wanted level is. As an officer, try and prevent from five or more people getting on the wanted list. If you notice a ton of people, feel free to trace their cellphone using the detective job. It will help keep the streets clean. Whenever you are looking on the wanted list, don't forget to Roleplay it!

Issuing Warrants:

Quote :
/su

Issuing warrants is the single-most important tool in the LSPD. It is how we give people "wanted stars." Whenever someone commits a crime, place a /su on them, that will give them a wanted level, notifying the FBI and the rest of the LSPD to go after the person. You can only arrest people with wanted stars, so without this command, we are toasted.

There is absolutely no tolerance for misusing this command. If you are found placing phony warrants on people, you will be FIRED on the spot. Another thing of note, do not meta-game warrants. To place a warrant, you must have the person's name or ID (License). If you don't have their name, don't place a warrant. You can gather the name using various methods: licenses, the MDC, the fingerprint scanner, and checking in with the hospital after critically injuring a suspect. ALWAYS make sure you get their name. You can and will be fired/demoted for meta-gaming.

Tickets:

Quote :
/ticket

Tickets are the way we deal with suspects that perform either one crime or small crimes, such as traffic violations. Crimes like murder, rape, hostage taking, ETC. should obviously result in an arrest. Tickets are to never be given over $10,000. You should also not be handing out $10,000 for extremely small crimes. Anybody found doing so will be fired and arrested for corruption.

Always remember, gather the suspect's name before handing out tickets. Don't meta-game otherwise you will be demoted or fired. The most common way to getting the name of a suspect that deserves a ticket is getting their license or matching a picture to their name via MDC.

Arresting:

Quote :
/arrest

Arrests should only be made when a suspect has committed multiple crimes or a more serious crime, like attempted murder. This command arrests whoever is wanted and is in your car. So make sure it is only you and the suspect your arresting in the car, otherwise, things could bug out.

Make sure you put an appropriate amount on the fine, minutes, and bail. If they only committed three crimes, don't give them $20,000 for 20 minutes with a bail of $300,000. Doing so could get you fired or demoted. A good rule of thumb that I follow is: $4,000 and 4 minutes per star. If they comply, take off some minutes and part of the fine. If they struggle, add time to their sentence and increase their fine.

Frisking:

Quote :
/frisk

This is used to pat down a suspect and see what he/she has on them. It will display crack, materials, pot, and their weapons. This is useful for finding any illegal substances that a suspect may be finding.

Always be sure to put non-latex gloves on prior to frisking. This will prevent disease transmission. The reason for non-latex gloves is due to the fact that some people have severe allergic reactions to latex. DO NOT "lube" up the gloves with spit. If you are witnessed doing so, you face possible suspension, demotion, or being fired.

Removing Items:

Quote :
/take

Before arresting someone it is always required to remove any weapons they have on them. This is to make sure they do not use the weapons in jail. Only Officers and above may take weapons. Any ranks below that are unable to do so.

Always remember, the only thing you can take during an arrest is weapons. DO NOT take materials, crack, marijuana, or cellphones. Doing so could put you up for a demotion and being fired as well as admin prison. If someone is making guns in jail, contact a Sergeant or higher. Officers and above may not take materials under ANY circumstance. Sergeants and above may take materials ONLY if guns are being made in jail.

Tazer:

Quote :
/tazer

The tazer is a non-lethal weapon used for subduing suspects. This is another tool that may never be abused. When you use this command, it will take up a SD pistol as a tazer, and you are able to taze the person you aiming at for 8 seconds. Enough time to cuff the suspect up.

Always remember that rush-tazing is a server rule. If someone is shooting at you, DO NOT taze them, shoot back. Once the person begins to run away, you may taze them again. Also, try and prevent from tazing people who have their hands up. You are allowed to cuff people if they are either tazed or if they have their hands up.

Cuffing Suspects:

Quote :
/cuff

Cuffing is absolutely necessary for catching suspects. Cuffs will break after four minutes. Make sure you watch time and RPly tighten the cuffs if need be. Always remember that you can't cuff people who don't have their hands up or if they aren't tazed. Always prevent yourself from tazing people with their hands up. The tazer should only be used if the suspect is resisting. Normally what I do is when you are processing someone and you have a partner, let your partner stand at the door next to the suspect. Incase he decides to run off your partner could just grab him in his neck right away.

Uncuffing Suspects:

Quote :
/uncuff

Uncuffing suspects might come in handy every once in a while. If you cuff someone for a bad reason or a situation comes along, this command will allow your suspect to go free. Always remember, if you didn't cuff the suspect, it isn't your suspect. Do not uncuff other officers' suspects. Doing so could get you in some trouble.

Detaining Suspects:

Quote :
/detain

Detaining is another necessary step to arresting suspects. To properly detain someone, make sure the car is right next to them and place them in the closest seat. If the car can't get close to the suspect, you can simply walk or drag the suspect to the car.

Try to detain to the correct seat for proper RP. Seat 1 is the passenger seat. Seat 2 is the seat behind the driver seat. Seat 3 is the seat behind the passenger seat. More information about it on the end of the Handbook! Try and memorize the seat positions for maximum RP.

Ramming Doors:

Quote :
/ram

Ramming doors is only to be used in special situations. This command allows you to enter houses regardless of the doors being locked or not. This command is not to be abused. If you have no proper reason to entering a house, do not ram the door down. This command should stick primarily to only SWAT personnel.

Deploying Spikes:

Quote :
/deployspikes

This command will lay a set of road spikes down on the ground. Road spikes are useful for popping the tires of vehicles. This will make trouble for the driver trying to get away as well as severely slow down the vehicle. Maximum of spike strips you are able to deploy is five (5).

A notice will be sent to all departments of the location of your spikes whenever you lay some down. You will also be told the ID of the spike strips your laying down. Only Sergeants and above have access to spikes. A total of 5 spikes may be down on the ground at any given time. This includes spikes from the FBI and NG. Do not leave any spike strips unattended or you will face a possible removal of your rank.

Removing Spikes:

Quote :
/removespikes

This command will collect any spikes on ground. To prevent confusion, be sure to only pickup the spikes you set on the ground. Do not pickup other people's spikes as there might be a use to them. Once again, only Sergeants and above can remove spikes.

Calling for Backup:

Quote :
/backup

Backup is a great way to gain the upper-hand in any situation. Using this command will notify all departments of your need for backup as well as place a blue beacon on their GPS. Use this if you are in a hot-spot and need some help. Be sure to update us via ventrilo as well so we can get there faster.

Calling-off Backup:

Quote :
/nobackup

If for some reason you no longer need backup, you can call it off using this command. This will remove the beacon from the GPS of all departments.

Operating Cameras:

Quote :
/cam

One task in the LSPD is station duty. While on station duty, you have the option of operating the cameras. To get to the cameras, go into the impound lot and enter the doors at the office near the garage gate. Turn on the cameras using this command. This is useful for monitoring the LSPD and gaining tactical advantages over any riots that have broken loose within the perimeter of the LSPD HQ.

There are 8 camera modes to choose from. Camera 1 is the front of the PD. Camera 2 is inside the lobby of the PD. Camera 3 is in the locker rooms. Camera 4 is a view of the hallway behind the metal doors. Camera 5 if a view of the jail cells. Camera 6 is the back portion of the garage. Camera 7 is the front potion of the garage. Camera 8 is the option for turning off the cameras.

Delivering a Suspect:

Quote :
/deliver

Whenever a suspect has committed 6 or more crimes, and those crimes are relatively big, like murder, rape, terrorism, ect., it is necessary to send the suspect to Demorgan. Take the suspect to the airport and send him on the next flight to prison using this command. It will send them to Demorgan for a good hour.

Only Officers and above are allowed to use this command. Also make sure that the suspect commited major crimes. If all of his crimes are reckless driving or something like that, just put him in jail for the maximum fine and time. ( Assuming he is a Most Wanted. )

Government Announcements:

Quote :
/gov

This will issue a government broadcast to all civilians in Los Santos. This is only to be used to broadcast important information. Pointless broadcasts are not needed and shouldn't be used over the government broadcast. Misusing the broadcast system could give you a demotion, firing, and admin prison. Since this is a command that is widely available for major abuse, only Captains and above may have access to this system.

Division Invites:

Quote :
/lspddiv

This command will allow for High Command members to assign people to divisions. This is used to let other people know if you are a member of either S.W.A.T. or a Field Training Officer. After being invited to a division, it will either say "(SWAT)" or "(FTO)" next to your name in /r along with your rank. Cadets are unable to join any division. Only Officers and above are eligible.

There are three numbers to choose from for the ID of the division. 1 means you are not in a division. 2 means you are a part of SWAT. 3 means you are a FTO. This will help identify people that are allowed to do SWAT situations or be training. Only Captains and above may assign people to divisions.

Deploying Barricades:

Quote :
/deploycade

This will set-up a huge blockade that will stop any vehicle dead in its tracks. It is very useful to prevent people from getting places. There is a limit to the number of barricades allowed to be spawned. All LEO Factions can have 5 barricades out at any time. Which means, if the NG has 4 barricades, you can only deploy one.

Due to possible abuse, only Sergeants and above are able to lay down a barricade. If you leave the barricade unattended, you face a possible removal of your rank.

Removing Barricades:

Quote :
/destroycade

This command allows you to remove any barricade near you. You must be standing very close to the barricade to do so. Only Sergeants and above have the ability to take down barricades.

Showing Your Badge:

Quote :
/showbadge

This command allows you to show your badge to anybody that asks. It is a great way to tell if someone is working for a Civil Service faction or not. If someone won't show you their badge or it looks fake, then you know you have a possible impersonator.

Checking Seat-belts:

Quote :
/checkbelt

This command will bring up a short sentence that tells you weather or not the person is wearing his or her seat-belt. Also a good idea to RP'ly check this whenever you pulled someone over.

Revoking a Driver's License:

Quote :
/revokedl

This command, if used in a faction vehicle, it will allow you to remove a person's driver's license. You must be a Sergeant or above or you will not be able to use this command.

Calling MPS:

Quote :
/mpsloc

This will set-up a beacon that is visible to MPS employees. Unlike /backup, the beacon will not follow you around. It will remain at the same spot you laid the beacon down.

9. San Andreas Wanted List

Quote :
/wanted
The Wanted list in your MDC Database will show all the wanted people around San Andreas and there Crimes with the current wanted level they are wanted.

10.Mobile Data Computer

Quote :
/mdc

The Mobile Data Computer, or MDC, is seldom used. It is a bit sad since the MDC is a great tool once you know how to use it. It can be used for placing BOLOs on people, running a check on criminal history, or matching a picture to someone's name. It is also useful for double-checking the identification of a under-cover FBI agent. A description about the usage of the MDC Database is made below


The Mobile Data Computer


Every cruiser is equipped with a MDC, these computers can be used for quite a bit of different things. The MDC contains a lot of information, and it has information for every registered citizen of San Andreas. Your Federal Issue PDA also have a copy of our MDC software, which can allow you access to the Database.



Sections

The Mobile Data Computer is made up of 4 different categories of options that you can use it for.


Find

The Find command of your MDC, uses the tracking devices located in Officer's Vests/Cruiser or radio to track the requested officer. It will put a blip onto the GPS of your MDC and will remain their for 30 seconds, until you re-update the command.


Civilian



Probably the most important command of the MDC is the Civilian section. This section contains all the information of every citizen of the State of San Andreas. The Civilian category has a few different sub-categories that have a great use in the LSPD.


Check

The check command of the MDC allows you to check a person's name and see if they have any outstanding warrants for their arrest. Also the Dispatch will be updated about your regained information from the civilian by using the MDC.


Licenses



The licenses command allows you to check a person's name to see if their licenses are legit or fake. You could also Roleplay checking their license plate, by using /vmdc (id). Of course you will have to Roleplay this, by using the MDC System. Hereby you could also pull people over, whenever your dashboard camera notices a stolen vehicle.


Warrants / Issue



The Warrants command of the MDC is used to check all of the warrants issued by the Issue command from other officers.

You can issue a warrant into the MDC and all Officers will be able to check these Warrants if the person is pulled over ETC...


Members



The members category of the MDC allows you to track all LEOs on duty. You can check all active units of each faction by typing the faction's name down into the MDC System.

Avaible factions are: LSPD, LSFMD, SASP and the FBI.


Options

The last section of the MDC is the options menu. It contains stuff such as SMSing other officers, Messaging them through the MDC, Checking BOLO's and Creating BOLO's.

Message

The Message command of the MDC allows you to send a virtual message to another Officer's MDC.

SMS

The SMS command is basically the same as the Message command, besides it sends a message to their phone number of the Officer.

BOLO

The BOLO command of the MDC allows you to access all of the BOLO's that other officers have created via their MDC.


Create

The Create command allows you create a BOLO for other officers to look out for.


This is a short and sweet version, I believe this contains enough information to get you to understand the MDC. If you have any questions regarding to the MDC System, feel free to ask them!

Vehicle Information

LSPD Patrol Car:



This is the main patrolling car available for the LSPD Officers, IT may be driven by any rank on their own for patrolling

SAPD Rancher:



This is the SAPD Vehicle Capable for Off Road and On Road chases and Standard patrols, It must only be driven with the permission of the Corporal or Higher (Rank 3+)

SAPD MotorCycle:



This must only be used when given the permission to patrol in and must be wearing your LSPD Biking uniform and safety equipment such as helmet (Helmet is on the uniform already)

Helicopter



This is the only vehicle in the LSPD arsenal that can take flight. It is fast compared to most helicopters. The ability to go in the air allows the tracking of suspects fleeing in cars, making it nearly impossible to escape.

You must have permission from a Sergeant or above to use this vehicle.

The Predator



This is the only vehicle in the LSPD arsenal that can survive in the water. It is fast compared to most boats available in the market. This is the only way to deal with boat pursuits.

There is a mounted gun on board of the Police Boats. The gun is automatic and can take out other vehicles in just a few seconds. The operation of the gun must be done by the driver.

In order to use this vehicle, you must be in the S.W.A.T. division and there must currently be a situation requiring the use of S.W.A.T. Captains can also grant permission for this vehicle.

S.W.A.T. Van



The S.W.A.T. van has enough momentum to go pretty fast, but the acceleration is poor. The handling is about moderate. The weight of this vehicle makes it an excellent tool for ramming other vehicles or making road blocks.

In order to use this vehicle, you must be in the S.W.A.T. division and there must currently be a situation requiring the use of S.W.A.T.

Mr. and Mrs. Splashy



This vehicle is extremely slow and the handling is poor. The exposed wheels makes it a prime target for gunfire in a chase. The weight in this huge tank is enough to ram most vehicles off the road.

The mounted water cannon on this vehicle is useful in extinguishing life-threatening fires and knocking suspects off their feet. That is useful when a suspect is firing a weapon. Knocking them over would prevent them from firing and hitting other officers.

In order to use this vehicle, you must be in the S.W.A.T. division and there must currently be a situation requiring the use of S.W.A.T.


Civilian Vehicles



I realize a lot of people like to drive their car around. However, in this line of work, you don't do that. If you are in uniform, on duty, and patrolling, you DO NOT under any circumstances patrol with your personal civilian vehicle.

The only people allowed to drive their cars around while doing any form of LEO work are Captains, Assistant Chief's, Chief. Once again, if you are in your uniform on on-duty, DON'T get in your civilian car.

There are the only Vehicles down at the Station of Los Santos PD available for the LSPD to use. However when in a seriously big LEO Situation and given the permission from the LSPD to acquire one of their vehicles, then it is necessary to use the LSPD Vehicles at the LSPD Garage ONLY WITH PERMISSION.


Miranda Rights

The Miranda Rights might seem pointless, but they are important. Once a suspect is cuffed, it is required for the Miranda Rights to be read before an interrogation. If you fail to read a person their rights, they are to be released from prison, have their charges lifted, and be refunded any expenses.

You may be thinking "We don't interrogate." That is a common misconception. Interrogating someone is asking them any question that requires an answer. They don't have to be put in a room with a microphone. If you simply ask them their name, you interrogated them.

Once the cuffs are on, you must give them their rights before asking anymore questions. This should be done at the scene of the crime, but if you feel that your life is threatened then you may take the suspect to the garage for reading them their rights.

Although there are many versions of the Miranda Rights, the Los Santos Police Department uses the following rights:

Quote :
You have the right to remain silent.

Anything you do or say can and will be used against you in the court of law.

You have the right to an attorney after initial processing has been completed.

Do you understand these rights as I have said them?


If a suspect does not understand their rights, you must explain them their rights at least one time. If you don't attempt to help them understand, then they are to be lifted of all charges and released from jail or custody. So be sure to memorize them well.

Internal Affairs

Internal Affairs is lead by the Chief, Assistant Chief and Lieutenants of the LSPD. They act as "administrators." They are in charge of getting people fired. Their job is to look over the LSPD and make sure everyone is following the rules. If you fail to follow the rules, you risk a big chance at gaining an IA Strike. IA Strikes are bad. For Officer and above, you get three strikes before you get fired. For Cadets, you get only two. Regardless of if what you did was OOC or not, it can still earn you a strike. Internal Affairs is allowed to hand out strikes OOCly and ICly.

There are only four people in the LSPD that are immune to IA Strikes. Those four people would be the Chief, Assistant Chief and the Lieutenants. Anybody else are eligible to receiving IA strikes and punishments.

IA Strikes


The following is a base for the list of things IA can hand out strikes for. Anything not on this list will have to be approved by either the Chief, Assistant Chief or Operations Captain.

The number of strikes for the infraction will be represented by the number of "X"'s in the bracket next to the offense.

Yellow - One IA Strike will be issued and closer observation.
Orange - Two IA Strikes will be issued and you will be demoted to your previous rank. You will also be suspended for a certain amount of time depending on what offense you comitted.
Red - Three IA Strikes will be issued and you will be fired from The LSPD.


FOR CADETS ONLY:

If a Cadet reaches their second strike, instead of getting suspended, they will get fired from the PD.

FOR EVERYONE ELSE:

] X ] One Strike will result in closer observation for subsequent misbehavior. Also given a 2 day (48 hour) Susepnsion.

"]XX ] Two Strikes will result in being suspended for 7 days. (Could be suspended for more, depends on the situation)

"]XXX ] Three Strikes will result in being fired from The LSPD. Depending on what offenses you've done, you'll be faction banned from rejoining The LSPD for a certain time.

Detain System



Whenever you have someone cuffed, it is necessary to detain to a vehicle to transport them. To do it RPly, you would detain them to the nearest seat to them once you parked the car. You would also detain in an empty seat. Here is a small diagram which should better help you understand which seat is where. Obviously you can't detain someone to the driver seat, so that is left blank.



On-Duty and Off-Duty


Cadets have many restrictions. Another one that may seem like a pain is the rule about going off-duty. Anybody can go off-duty, except Cadets. Cadets must remain on-duty at all times (( While your playing. You can log-off if you need to sleep or something. )) Officers and above, however, may go off-duty with permission of a High Command member.

While off-duty, the only weapon you can carry is a Deagle and a can of mace for your protection. You may not be going around with automatic weapons. Another thing I would like to add, DO NOT get under-cover and off-duty mixed. While your off-duty, you cannot perform stings or drug busts or the like. That is left to the FBI. Being off-duty is there solely for the sake of being able to relax. You may not patrol or perform Law Enforcement duties while off-duty.

If you wish to mess around, do it while your off-duty. However, you may not perform any illegal actions, like material running. Anybody found doing so will be fired on the spot. The same thing goes for acting under-cover. You may not, under any circumstances, go under-cover to arrest someone or you will be fired as well.

Whenever you patrol, make sure your on-duty. You are not allowed to patrol while off-duty. The only people allowed to do so are those with public Internal Affairs powers.

To change from on-duty and off-duty, go into the locker room and type "/lspd." That will open a menu. The first option will place you either off-duty or on-duty.

Ticketing Procedure


Most, if not all ticket procedures begin when someone performs a traffic violation. This guide will go off that. You may alter the procedure anyway you like to to fit the situation. Memorize and learn this well.

First thing you must do when you notice a traffic violation is turn on your sirens. This lets the person know your behind them. After that, announce your presence using the megaphone. I will assume the person stopped after the first warning.

Once the person pulls over, you may tell them one of two things. Either "get out of the car with your hands up" or "turn off your engine and remain seated."

After they listen to your command, approach them with every weapon holstered. Make sure they are aware of why they got pulled over. If they don't know why they got pulled over then you are not allowed to ticket them. Establish your reason for the traffic stop prior to ticketing, always.

After they understand what they did, proceed to gather their name. There are two ways this can be confirmed. Either picture ID or by them tell you verbally and the name being matched to a picture via MDC. If they lie about their name, then proceed to the arrest procedure since they failed to comply. (( You MUST get a name to ticket. Don't meta-game or you will be fired. ))

After you gather the name, run a check over the MDC to see if they are wanted. (( RP it, but use /wanted for a list of wanted people. )) If they turn out to be wanted, arrest them, otherwise, hand them back their ID, if they gave you one.

Now ask them if they are able to pay the ticket. Tell them how much the ticket will be. If they can't pay the ticket, they will need to be arrested. If they say they can, then write up the ticket and hand it to them. Once they pay the ticket, they may go on their way.

Arrest Procedure


Most, if not all ticket procedures begin when someone performs a traffic violation. This guide will go off that. Feel free to alter this procedure in any way to match the situation.

First thing you do when you notice a traffic violation is you turn on your sirens. This lets the person know your behind them. After that, announce your presence via megaphone. If they continue to drive, wait a few seconds (( 15-20 seconds )) and then warn them again. Wait one more time for 15-20 seconds. If they continue to drive, give them their third and final warning to pull over. If they still don't pull over in 15-20 seconds, you are allowed to hop to Force Matrix level 5.

Allow your passenger to shoot at the vehicle. Once two tires are popped, stop shooting. If possible, don't let the car blow up. It might save the lives of a few pedestrians. At this time, you may perform any PIT maneuvers (Lag slamming) as well.

Once the suspect is out of the car, get out of your car and chase him on foot. Once your within shooting range, taze him. If he shoots, use common sense and shoot back to protect yourself. Make sure he is cuffed after you manage to taze him.

Bring the car around and detain the suspect to the car and take him to the police station for processing.

Before starting any processing, read him his miranda rights. These should be read right after they are cuffed, but it is allowed to be said anytime before interrogation. Remember, interrogation is asking them questions against their will. If they are cuffed and are being asked their name, they are being interrogated. So remember the miranda rights.

Once he is safe in the garage, proceed to gather his name. This can go three ways. Either an ID, a name which is matched to a photo via MDC, or the finger-print scanner. Either method is acceptable in this case.

Once you have the name, frisk him for any illegal items. They do not need to consent to a frisk when they are being arrested. At any other time, they must be asked. If the suspect has weapons, take them, otherwise proceed to the next step.

Begin to add charges. Make sure they every crime they commit is a separate charge. Don't put multiple crimes on one charge. After they are charged up, take over to the arrest station and place them in the cells. After that, you are free to patrol once more.

Patrol System


We have removed the LST and LSI patrol system. This is simple use:
- Golf 1
- Golf 2
- Golf 3
- Golf 4
And so on...

When you are in each unit, you shall do both patrolling around the city and responding to backup/911 calls. Remember to always respond to 911 or backup calls when you aren't busy doing a arrest or any kind. These backup calls could be really important, so it is vital you respond to them!

Chopper units are now called Polair (1-4).
One person is going to be in a chopper, circling around the city to watch over it, and if something is happening they call for backup to ground units to sort the issue out. Also a Polair patrol Unit is for air support, whenever the ground units are in a pursuit.

SWAT Situations


If you've elected to patrol the banks and are 100% certain there is a robbery and/or hostage situation in progress, immediately call a 10-70 TANGO and wait for SWAT to arrive on scene - you'll get no prize for being a hero in these situations. This goes for all other areas of activity. As a Patrol Officer, the best thing you can do to help is to set up a permimeter, radio the situation ASAP and block the scene off from the general public. If you attempt to tackle the situation yourself, you'll end up doing more harm than good.

SWAT members are hand picked because they are the best shooters, drivers and RPers. Keep in mind that the current situations will warrant a 10-70 TANGO call:

1. Barricaded Suspects in a business, house or general area. (This includes Bank Robberies)

2. High Risk Warrants (An example might be a raid called upon by a cooperating agency or a Most Wanted suspect inside a business or house).

3. A Riot or possible Riot (Obvious signs of a possible riot are large groups of individuals who might be acting violently towards others and/or verbally abusing other people)

4. Large scale gang wars - If it's a few gang members engaged in a firefight, cal in normal backup and resolve it. If it's large groups of gang members shooting at each other and are remaining in a certain area, SWAT can be called in to resolve the situation.

5. Hostage Situations. As soon as you receive word that a hostage has been taken and it has been confirmed, block off the area (If the situation is at Death Bridge) and call in the 10-70. Don't call SWAT in unless the hostage situation is 100% confirmed.

Force Matrix


Read this information described below really carefully, really important! The main goal for an officer is to get the Force Matrix under control! If you got everything really good set up, you are able to control each situation with perfection and professionalism.

Force Level 1
- Suspect may be verbally assaulting you or others
- Suspect starts to show aggression in his tone of speaking
- Suspect may be taunting you, or using foul language

Your Actions:
At this point in time you are not authorized to use any physical means of force at all. You may issue verbal warnings at this point in an attempt to calm down the suspect. No hands on or support equipment required.

Force Level 2
- Suspect has committed a crime
- Suspect is disobeying direct orders from a LEO
- Suspect is starting to hint at violent actions
- Suspect is starting to make aggressive movements with his body
- Suspect may seem to be preparing for a physical engagement
- Suspect is increasingly getting worse with his aggression in his tone against you, or others
- Suspect is showing disrespect against you or another person

Your Actions:
At this point in time you are not authorized to use any secondary equipment. Call for assistance using a Code 2 Backup request, and move to a hands on approach of trying to escort the person from the situation or away from potential victims using voice commands and light gestures. ((* Jesse Ventura gently pushes the man in the other direction)).

Force Level 3
- Suspect has committed a crime
- Suspect may be using physical contact against you or another person
- Suspect may be using a non lethal weapon on you or another person
- Suspect may be threatening your life or another persons life
- Suspect is actively involved in any physical fight

Your Actions:
At this time you are only allowed to only use a tazer, pepper spray or a nightstick to detain the suspect. You are to call in for code three backup from other officers at this time. Under no circumstances should you withdraw your firearm unless the situation reaches force level 4 for a serious assault or crime.

Force Level 4
- Suspect has done or is committing a felony crime
- Suspect is brandishing a firearm
- Suspect is assaulting another person with a vehicle
- Suspect has placed your life or another persons life in danger
- Suspect is seriously assaulting another person ((causing the person or you to be on low health))

Your Actions:
At this point and time we observe that the suspect is possibly threatening another human life. At this point and time you are allowed to upholster your firearm and take aim on the suspect. Under no means should you ever fire unless the force level reaches 5. Also you are NEVER to tazer any suspect that is actively discharging a firearm. Note: If you warn someone to put away/drop a firearm and they do not comply, after the fifth warning you are expected to use your own judgment on how to handle the situation.

Force Level 5
- Suspect has done or is committing a serious felony crime
-Suspect is in the act of seriously assaulting you or another person to near death
- Suspect has a firearm and is aiming at you or other civilians
- Suspect may be firing the firearm at you or other civilians
- Suspect may be in a car attempting to hit you or other civilians
- Suspect is fleeing in a vehicle after three warnings have been issued
- Suspect has a hostage

Your Actions:
At this point you are allowed to open fire at the suspect and shoot to kill. You are to do your best to avoid these situations but if they occur you are authorized to use deadly force. In regards to the suspect fleeing in a vehicle after you have gave him his ample supply of warnings your partner may shoot out his tires with approval. Once you hit one tire you should not be shooting anymore. You should radio in for code 3 assistance.


What to do When Shots are Fired

DO's:
* Spend a moment evaluating the situation. Just because someone is discharging a weapon doesn't always make them a threat, they could be an off duty/undercover officer and/or a carded civilian protecting themselves within the law.
* Run to cover.
* Pop out from cover and pick your shots.
* Give chase if you're sure you won't be shot as a result.
* Use vent and give us vitals on the number of shooters, etc.

DONT's:
* Run toward, around or past an active shooter. The only place you should be running is to cover. Don't try and get close by chicken running at him, it looks really bad.
* Stay in the open and hope for the best.
* Spray wildly.
* Bug abuse. You get caught using any quick-shooting bugs, whatever, count yourself done in this department.
* Strafe. Yes, the people shooting at you will, but this just doesn't happen IRL.
* Set up where you could take cross-fire. Don't surround someone in a circle, as if one person fired and missed or the shot exited the suspect, it would hit the officer opposite.
* Scream in vent.
* Continue to shoot when the threat no longer exists. If they stop their hostile actions are you expected to act accordingly (IE if the suspect gives up, drops his weapon, or turns and runs you must stop shooting.


Vehicle Pursuits


During a pursuit, you must work as a team. In order to effectively work as a team and not harm each other, there are a few things that must be done.

During each pursuit, there will be a car in front of the other cars that are chasing the suspect. The front car is known as the lead car. You are to not pass the lead car unless you have permission or if they crashed. This is to prevent ramming him.

If you happen to crash your car, be sure to stay where you are and allow for the other units to pass you. Once they have passed you, catch up with the pursuit, don't try and stay with them or you may cause more accidents.

You may not shoot at a vehicle that is not shooting back, the only except to this rule is after giving three warnings to pull over. Once the three warnings are issued, your passenger may shoot, however, once two or more tires are popped, you are to stop shooting.

Whenever your requesting backup, it is a good thing to let us know where you are. Give a brief description of your location every 10-15 seconds. If you fail to do so, it may be impossible for backup to arrive.

Going Away


If you are going to go away for a while, let us know. Inactivity checks are made every week. If you don't let us know your going to be inactive, then you will be marked as inactive. Seven (7) days as being "inactive" will get you removed from the PD and Usergroup.

To prevent this from happening post here whenever you are going to leave. Don't make a thread saying your going to go away without posting in that thread.

The Roster


There is one single roster where everyone in the PD is listed. It is very important that you are on the roster. Every month, you will be removed from the forum user-group if you are inactive or aren't on the roster. You can find the roster here. If you see something wrong, like your the wrong rank or your name is twice, then tell us. Don't just think it isn't useless. It must be up-to-date.
