Job is whitelisted and will require a dedicated char to it.
Please follow this guide on how we do police on RelaxedRP. I’m going to keep it short and simple as a quick reference guide on what to do. You need to be a good cop and follow the rules below, if you cannot you WILL be removed from the departments, and all your characters banned from being able to join the police department. This is a chill and relaxed server, we are not here to constantly chase people and take all their shit.
The basic rules of policing:
1- Becoming a Police Officer: You must dedicate a char to being a police officer, we will not constantly set you back to the police job, once hired we will only set that char you choose to the police job once. You can go off duty within the pd to go do activities. To apply to the Police Dept Create a Support Ticket stating which char you wish to use as your Police Char and I will set you as Police, and will meet with you in the server and set your char as Police. It’s as simple as that. Please note, that you will be held liable for your Police Char’s actions and can be fired if you do not follow the policies outlined below, or found to have committed a crime. If this happens all your chars will be banned from ever being a Police Officer again, essentially you the person behind these characters will be banned from ever being a Police Officer again.
2- MetaGaming: Meta gaming is using information that you have attained out of game or global chat, for use with your police char to gain advantage over someone else. DO NOT DO THIS YOU WILL BE FIRED! You need to be doing actual police work and investigate alerts that come in. Binoculars are your best friend in a lot of cases. Information in Global Chat CANNOT be used, this would be MetaGaming…. Global Chat is a safe place for everyone.
3- Police Vehicle and Uniform Policy: You can use the uniform provided in the server with any vehicle you want and patrol the entire map. So, drive a Blaine County car in LS, I don’t care. Drive an LS Sheriff car in Blaine, I don’t care. We are here to have fun, use whichever vehicle you like, but you must wear the police uniform in a police car, that’s all. If using VMenu, as long as you are using the police top with black pants you are good to go. Otherwise, the uniform MUST be approved by the Police Chief, Danny Cooper. NEVER do plainclothes operations without permission from Danny Cooper the chief.
4- Police Notifications: Police notifications are NOT PROOF that the person did something wrong. The notification is “someone calling in” a possible crime. This only gives you probable cause to make a traffic stop and investigate… THAT’S IT! Then you have to do the real police work during the traffic stop. NOTE: Police notifications literally come from peds calling the police, when someone is doing a crime the notification checks around for peds, if it doesn’t find any, no notification.
5- Discord – Voice Comms: You MUST be in the Discord RelaxedRP-Police Channel every time you log in as police, whether you can talk or not.
6- Police MDT:
1- Access the MDT with /mdt or DELETE while on duty as an officer. There you can do many things, go ahead access it, and have a look around.
2- You MUST make a police report for every arrest you make. Simply log the reason for the arrest, and if you confiscated any items. Please start each report title with (PD – ) example: PD – Speeding & Evading.
3- When you arrest someone please bring them to the photo room if they did not get a mug shot done yet. To add a picture to the MDT use our image uploader by clicking here. Use the “DIRECT LINK” from the uploader into the MDT. Youtube Tutorial HERE on how to do it quickly.
4- Once in the jail cell their 2-minute timer starts.
NOTE: You can also check to make sure they do not have outstanding tickets by using the F6 Menu and interacting with them that way as well by doing “Manage billing” and you’ll see if they have any outstanding tickets…. btw there is a ticket you can give them for having an outstanding ticket.
7- Making an arrest: You cannot arrest someone if you do not see them do the crime. If you make assumptions and arrest people without you seeing them do the crime, you will be removed from the server. If you make an arrest bring the suspect to mission row, process them in the MDT, store any confiscated items into the evidence safe, bring them into a cell for 2 minutes, then take them upstairs and release them out front. If you have to take a mugshot because they have no picture on their profile, then go ahead and take them to the mugshot room, take pictures, update their profile, do your report, give the tickets and release them from there as they had to wait for the mugshot process. We are not in the business of keeping people in jail here, we are here to have fun and play. To arrest someone, do so via the F6 Menu to Cuff them then Escort them while they are on foot, then take them to your car. The exception to this: If someone runs someone else with a car and kills a person and you have enough evidence, you can make the arrest.
8- Rules of giving tickets: Only give a max of 3 tickets for crimes that you SAW happen. If you give players more than 3 tickets because you are mad at them, etc… whatever. You will be removed from the server.
9- Traffic Offence: Give a ticket appropriate to the offense (F6 Menu) or a verbal warning.
10- Car Chase: If someone runs from you and you are in pursuit, you can ram them but DO NOT SHOOT unless they shoot first. You can use spike strips ahead of the chase to try and pop the bad guy’s tires. Just keep ramming them until their car is disabled. Remember, cops can lose too… if you are in the mind set that you win every time, leave my server now. You need to be chill, and if you lose them, you lose them, that’s it. Sometimes criminals will get away and that’s fine!
11- Searching a Car/Forceful Entry into a car: You cannot search/enter a car unless one of the two things are met. 1- Driver gives you permission or 2- Driver is under arrest for an arrestable offense.
12- Shooting Policy: Do not shoot a suspect’s vehicle unless they shoot at you first, or ram you. (Please consider lag with this) If you catch them and arrest them, jail time 2 minutes.
13- Running Over Someone Policy: DO NOT run over a suspect that’s running if they did not use lethal force first. If you just ended a chase and they start running… YOU HAVE TO RUN TO! Only run over a suspect in one of the following cases (They ran over and killed peds, they shot at you or they ran you over while you were on foot and you’re returning the favor.)
15- Shooting Call: Do not shoot at someone unless being shot at. Investigate the area and see if you find anything. If not move on. If you do find the shooting after PROPER Investigation or just see them shooting, then go after them.
16- Drug offense: You receive an alert there are drugs being delt and you arrive on the scene and you see a player running around…. what do you do? Arrest them? No… just because you got there after notification and you see someone running around did you see them do the crime? No. You must see them shake hands with a NPC to arrest them. After you take the drugs from the person, after you have arrested them and released them, you must store the drugs in evidence. Go to where you get your weapons, use the same menu, and Deposit Object. You cannot keep their drugs for your own use, because you got them while you were police. The legal amount of weed is just 8 Joints, that’s it.
17- Searching someone and finding Illegal Items: You can take all their drugs/illegal hunted meats if shot from roadway/hacker device/hacker software and arrest them. DO NOT take anything else, even if they have weapons. Drugs only is the only thing we can take away from them. When can you search someone? Everyone who needs to go to Morgue by police can be searched automatically. If someone under arrest for a crime, you can search them automatically. Other than that, you cannot search someone. 2 minute jail time. The legal amount of weed is just 8 Joints, that’s it.
18- Another item we can confiscate besides drugs: Illegally hunted meats.
Hunting from the side of the road is illegal, so if you see shots fired in Blaine County and the notification is on or by the roadway, respond to it. Stop short of the area and use Binoculars to see if you can catch the offender in the act or have them admit to it. If either is true, then you may confiscate ALL meats that they have on their person, and give them a ticket for Hunting from the roadway and cut em loose.
19- Criminal driving unrealistic: Notify admin on duty in chat if a criminal is making jumps that are unrealistic.
20- Being a Good Cop: Just like in real life, if you are caught breaking the law as a police officer you will be fired from the department.
21- Warrants: Only the Chief can issue a warrant. If there’s a suspect that you feel needs to be brought in, you need to present your evidence to the chief. Evidence must be concrete.
22- Commands and Buttons: View the Commands and Buttons page and scroll to the bottom to see how to use the police functions, as well as interacting with AI.
23- When on duty you must respond to calls and pick the calls that take priority.
–You will respond to a shooting call instead of a speeding call.
–You will respond to a robbery instead of a speeding call.
–You will respond to a mugging instead of a speeding call.
–You will respond to a drug sale instead of a speeding call.
–Already chasing a suspect and another call comes in? Continue chasing your suspect unless the crimes committed by your suspect are lesser than the next call coming in, then divert to the next call and let that suspect get away.
Standing around not responding to calls is a derelict of duty and can lead to termination. If you are going AFK for a while PLEASE GO OFF DUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some robbery events count on a number of cops being on duty before they activate, if only two cops on and 1 cop goes afk a while, then only 1 cop can respond to the store robberies…. the store robberies turn on when 2 cops come online… please don’t screw over the only cop that’s on duty at the time by going AFK like that… go off duty before you do so.
24- When players ask how many cops are on duty: Never reveal how many cops are on duty at any given time. This must always remain a mystery to all players at all times so that its like real life, no one ever knows in the general public how many cops are on duty at anytime, or where they are at. Please refrain from giving out this information, doing so will result in admin intervention.
25- Going Off Duty: If you are on your COP Char and want to just do activities to earn them some money, please go OFF DUTY to do so. You can go off duty behind the main desk at Mission Row, Sandy, and Paleto Bay. The big green circle.
