    October 2019 PC Rules Update

    Modern times require modern measures and in order to further encourage activity of PC personnel based on preferences of today, some changes were made to existent rules.

    • PC members are no longer required to offer roleplay during car chases before attempting arrest. Instead they're required to issue two warnings before engaging, describing clear intention of arrest as well as command to surrender (/sur). If the suspect stops, they must be given time to surrender before the arrest, to get 75% off prison time for cooperation. Roleplay is encouraged but is not mandatory.

    • Dog handler role may now be executed by any police member on police or squad team. Player using the dog spawn is responsible for following the PC rules related to dog spawn and is held responsible for any errors. Handler is no longer required to have PC diploma.

    Changes made will be reviewed after a period of observation and based on gathered information may remain, be adjusted or fully reverted.

    January 2020 SAPD HQ Changes & PD Vehicles Addition

    Police vehicle fleet is everchanging as are the threats that our personnel face. To keep up with the times, some minor additions were implemented with purpose of assisting law enforcement while experiencing different issues or situations:

    • Two vehicles were added to LS, LV and SF Police Departments each, one Sultan and one Buffalo. These cas are reserved solely for squad officials; in order to combat their inability to access police vehicles outside of their squad base.
    • Police Sultans received an engine upgrade, their speed was increased to match that of Buffalos. Handling remains the same which provides law enforcement with multiple vehicle choices depending on situation and preference.

    We’d like to thank the retiring HQ members for their service throughout past years, SAPD wouldn’t be where it is today without your effort and dedication, @Sam_ @Tut-Greco. New HQ members are likely to emerge soon in order to replace departing persons, until that point of time the SAPD HQ will operate normally but with decreased number of managers.

    Changes made will be reviewed after a period of observation and based on gathered information may remain, be adjusted or fully reverted.
