Correct Vehicle Use
This is a list of all the vehicles that belong to the LSPD and SAHP, and what they're main function is for.

LSPD Patrol Car

This is the main vehicle that all Officers should be driving, unless they're a Sergeant or above.

LVPD Patrol Car

This is the vehicle that is used by the SAHP. Sergeants and above are also allowed to drive these.

SAPD Ranger

This is another vehicle used by the SAHP. Good for Off-Terrain, but sadly the LSPD may not drive them.

SAPD Motorbike

This is the best vehicle if you're planning to keep up with a suspect while using a beacon, or responding to a 911 call. You may only use if a Captain or above says it is okay. Once they go off-duty you must park it in the garage.


Also known as "Mr Splashy" due to its powerful Water Cannon. Good for keeping people pinned and controling a riot. Only use with permission from a Captain or above.

SWAT Truck

A bulky but speedy truck, can flip easily though. Should only be used in a SWAT situation or in a roadblock.

SAPD Enforcer

A large truck which contains Kevlar Vests inside. For use in SWAT situations only, should never be taken out of the garage without a Captain or aboves permission.

SAPD Maverick

A standard Maverick helicopter, painted to the LSPD colours. Has been equipped with a spotlight and should only be used with permission from a Captain or above.

SAPD Predator

A speedboat equipped with two seperate guns. Should only be used for Coastguard with a Captain or aboves permission.

Note: All Cars should be their standard colour (( 0 1, exluding the Predator and SAHP which are 77 1 ))

Chain of Command
The Miranda Rights must be read when arresting somebody, failure to say them can allow the person to not be arrested, as you did not tell them their rights.
"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you."
A simple */me reads the suspect his Miranda Rights" will do.

You are only in your position for one reason, to obtain a better understanding of how the Police Department works. If a higher ranking officer tells you something, you had better listen closely and if a higher ranking officer asked you to do something, you had better do it.
You may feel like you know everything that there is to know, but as a Cadet you should be listening to everything, because you don't know everything at all.
If you screw around at all, no matter what rank you are, you will be removed from the Police Department, respect everyone and do as you are told.
Respect everybody.


Internal Affairs Infractions
Due to efforts to clean up the Department, we use the Infraction System and Infraction Officers. If you stuff around then people can complain to the IA, using people and screenshots as evidence. If the IA catches you doing it, they do not even need screenshots. They are in their position because the Chief trusts them.

Powergaming is when you do something you can't in real life, or forcing somebody into a RP situation.

It's also powergame to do /me kills "name"

How can I apply to be an Officer?
You can apply by going to the Recruitment Office and reading the format for an application and then posting a new thread with that format. Failure to do the correct format or fill in all details will be an automatic deny.
