Police Officer Rules Team speak All police officers must be in Team Speak.
Highest rank Police officers must listen to the highest rank online and in-game.
Bank If the bank is being robbed, it is your highest priority to get there and stop the robbers. The bank is above all else if it is getting robbed stop what you are doing and move to the bank, remember to close and repair vault doors and outer doors.
Talk before you shoot All officers must talk before they shoot. Example #1: If you see a civilian with a gun and decide to Taser him instead of talking this would be considered RDM and fail RP.
Speed to pull out players Officers may not pull players out of cars unless they are going under 15 mph or full stopped.
Pulling players from cars Officers may not pull players out of cars unless they have a valid reason. Example #1: The player is driving aggressively or making illegal turns while driving, if the player is wanted or if they are chasing the player and need to pull him out.
Taser RDM Officers may not Taser players on sight this will be classified as RDM read server rules for a full explanation.
Road blocks Officers are allowed to set up road blocks if there is a criminal at large and were last seen in the area they have decided to set up a check point. Example #1: A criminal is spotted in Athira and the police have set up check points on an outer road to search cars for the suspect.
Lethal force Police are not allowed to use lethal force unless under extreme circumstances. Some examples are as follows: the fed is being robbed, there is a hostage situation or the officer’s life is endangered and so forth.
Hostages hostage situations are the police’s second priority and it is recommended that all available officers responded to the situation. In the emergency of a hostage situation the highest ranking officers will command the rescue, which would require him to choose which roads are closed, who the negotiator is, and where the S.W.A.T team will enter from. Lower ranking officers will be in charge of closing roads and making sure the area around the hostage is secure.
S.W.A.T The swat team is deployed when certain emergencies break out. Some examples are as follows: war has been declared, the bank is being robbed or a civilian has been taken hostage and so forth. The S.W.A.T teams have access to heavy weapons and much better equipment to deal with serious threats. Once the emergency is over the S.W.A.T teams will return and go back on patrol as normal police officers. S.W.A.T members are the highest rank and are above all other officers when they are deployed, failing to listen to a S.W.A.T team member could result in your demotion.
Police ranks The police officer’s rank is given out to cops to distinguish their level of command. The police ranks ordered from lowest to highest command are as follows:
Recruits These Officers are in training and have just got accepted to the force, they will mostly be patrolling with higher ranks and are the lowest in the chain of command. Police officers These cops are the most common you will find and they will always be on patrol and apprehending suspects they are the first ones on the crime scene and sometimes the last! Commissioner Officers of this rank know the rules and ticket prices. They are strict to the police book and will be there to act as a higher up rank when requested by players. Police Chief Chiefs of police will be there to command and oversee the police force and problems. They demonstrate leadership and take charge when needed. Chief Superintendent Superintendents are in charge of regular cops and control all areas of the police force but S.W.A.T. When they have been deployed, these officers know everything there is needed to know about being an officer of Altis. S.W.A.T Officers that have made it into S.W.A.T are the best of the best. They have access to much greater weaponry then other officers and are the first to answer when the bank is robbed. S.W.A.T takes command above all other officers when an emergency break outs.
Lower ranks and higher rank weapons Higher ranking officers are not permitted to let lower ranking officers use their weapons or heavy vehicles, if found doing so this could lead to you being demoted.
Police vehicle rules Police are allowed to use their vehicles to stop criminals escaping in trucks or cars, if the suspect refuses to pull over when being messaged or have the lights and sirens on. Officers are not allowed to VDM or they could be blacklisted.
Randomly restraining players Officers are not allowed to restrain civilians for no reason, they must have a probable cause, such as the civilian was reported to have been involved in illegal activity, he has an illegal gun, or is drunk and using drugs. Officers found randomly restraining players will be blacklisted or deranked, as we treat this as abusing power.
Police vehicles Police are allowed to use their vehicle to stop a suspect that refuses to pull over. In order to let players know you are in pursuit you message them to pull over or turn your lights or sirens on. Officers are not allowed to lend their cars to civilians and are not allowed to use civilian cars. Police may use their vehicles to form road blocks temporarily to search cars for suspects.
Police aviation rules Police are allowed to fly were they please as long as it is not in any rebel or mercenary bases. Cops may use their aircraft to hover cities in emergency situations if they need to follow a suspect officers may not fly in one spot for ever and must fly above 100 meters when not in air mission.
War When war is declared it is recommended that all available officers go to the city where war has been declared. Once the war has ended all cops can return to patrol duty.
Police officer rules and handbooks All officers must learn the police rules and handbooks so they are prepared to follow the rules when an emergency arises. Officers that refuse to learn the handbook will be removed or demoted from the police force.
Time limit for jail Sending a civilian to jail for an unreasonable amount of time for a petty theft will not be tolerated. Players must be sent to jail for the appropriate amount of time for the crime they have committed. If a player has robbed the bank then that is a reasonable time of 30-45 minutes, if a player has murdered two players then a fair time would be 10-15 minutes, if a player has several charges against them, such as 6 murders and various other charges then a fair amount of time would be between 30-40 minutes. It would only be a very rare occasion that you would send a player to jail for 60 minutes.
Ticketing Ticketing players is not to be abused. Giving a player an unreasonable ticket for a petty theft is not allowed and will not be tolerated. Example #1: Giving a player a $200,000 ticket for speeding would be unreasonable. Do not abuse your power to give tickets and make sure to be fair as a cop!
Civilian Miranda Rights All officers must read a civilian/suspect his or her rights when arresting them and sending them to jail. Any officer who does not read a civilian their rights can be demoted and the suspect may be set free. The rights are as follows: “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, if you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you, do you understand the rights that have just been read to you?”.
Speed limits The speed limit in main city areas is 50km an hour; if you go past a speed trap, you the civilian will be ticketed. The speed on major highways is 100km an hour, going over this speed past a speed trap will result in an auto ticket to the civilian.
Drug raids Police officers are required to activate their sirens from 1km out to alert the players at drug fields they are coming. Once the officers show up both parties are engaged, if you are the rebel or civilian at the drug field and the cops show up with their sirens on RP has already started and both parties may shoot on sight with in the red zone.
Officers are required to operate in buddy system If there is more than 1 cop on you must patrol with the other officers.
Only rank 4 and up can give promotions If you are a rank 4 or over you may take lower ranks on a patrol with you and test them over numerous days to see if they really earn a promotion or demotion.
Rank 4 and up play time Rank 4 and up must play on a regularly basis as they are team leaders. If they are absent for a certain amount of time they can be demoted.
Lethal weapons on your back All officers that have a lethal weapon on them must leave their lethal on their back or in their car. Tasers are to be used as the primary weapon and the only time an officer should have a lethal out is if his life is in danger, the fed is being robbed or a hostage situation is taking place.

All officers must be in there appropriate TS room Officers in game must be in the right channel in TS, depending on your assigned unit, what city you are in or job you are doing you must be in the proper TS room.
Taking away licences If you are sending a player to jail you must remove all of their licenses. If a player has been caught with a misdemeanor crime, then you are allowed to remove certain licences. Example #1: If you pulled over a player for drunk driving you could remove his licence and impound his car. Example #2: If a player has a gun and was shooting it in the city you can take away his gun and firearm licence.
Removing a player’s rebel license You may only remove a player’s rebel licence if you are sending them to jail, in which case all licences must be taken away.
Gangs hideouts If the police want to raid a gang hideout they must have 3 officers minimum, with at least one commissioner or higher to lead the task force. Police must have their sirens active and lights on order to raid it. The police must surround the area before they raid it trying to talk with the gang to leave on peaceful terms. If they refuse, then your higher rank makes the decision to start the raid. When you have started the raid you must try to take the gang hideout occupants and bring them to Police Processing. If you cannot taze them, then lethal force may be used. Police are not allowed to use snipers in the hideout and must remain in close quarters to pull the raid off. Neither the gang that is in the hideout or the police force are permitted to shoot with snipers from a distance or any sort of high caliber from medium range, it is a close to very close zone to battle in.
Police being taken hostage If your fellow officer is being taken hostage you must do all you can to get him back alive. If the officer that has been taken hostage is told his communication is being taken away, then he may not use group or ts or the request back up feature to alert the police where he is. If you see one of your officers being taken hostage on the street, you must do all you can to prevent the officer from being taken hostage. If you see your officer being taken hostage and decide to taze or shot the player that is doing so that is classified as not role playing as you could have the player that is taking your officer hostage on fear RP by surrounding him. You still must announce that you are the police before you act.
Police hard check points Police are allowed to put you in jail from a stationary check point, meaning one that is non removable. An example of one of the stationary check point would be police check point alpha.

In order to use the EMP properly you must message the player in the vehicle you are chasing and give him a text warning of an EMP, then an EMP warning found in the EMP menu and finally after a message and a warning if the player refuses to pull over you may use the EMP to stop him.
Police drones Police ranked commissioner and above have the access to DART drones. These drones are not to be used to patrol Kavala but to be used as a surveillance aircraft for high speed pursuits, hostage situations, fed robbery and surveillance players that are heavily armed. Officers caught abusing with the drone will be removed from there rank.
