The member could also receive department level punishment for actions unbecoming of a departmental member. This means loss of rank and status at the will of the department head.


Police Department RP (3.1)


When can a Civilian take a police car?

  • A civilian must observe an officer in the act of a role play situation. This means the officer must be online and not disconnected. The officer must make an mistake not to lock their car for the vehicle to be taken. During certain instances in complex role play a cop may be robbed of their police vehicle but serious role play must commence or else it would be considered fail role play. It is also against server rules to steal emergency vehicles outside of any police station.
What can be done with a stolen police vehicle?

  • Stolen police vehicles cannot be altered in anyway, they are to remain in the condition you got it in, and any damage you incur can’t be repaired, because no reasonable mechanic will realistically fix it for you. Thus no repairs, no modifications, no changes to the vehicle other then its default condition.


Abandoned Police Vehicle.

  • If the police vehicle is abandoned or does not have a cop identifier it will be deleted by the compliance department or other staff. These vehicles can not be stolen since there is not an active RP scene.

Gear from the police car?
  • If the police car is stolen you may only use the defaulted stolen weapon in the car whether that be a pump shotgun or rifle. Anything further or made up is not acceptable.
If I steal the car can I wear a police uniform, or can I just use the uniform for any reason?

  • No, you cannot dress up as cop or pretend to play a cop. If police gear is stolen, you may only use the gun and vehicle not the uniform. This also applies to pretending to be a cop.


Cop-baiting (3.11)
 
It is forbidden for players to bait officers. If an officer is busy with a crime scene such as a bank robbery or a murder or they are engaged in role play, be sure to let them finish.
 
Do Not:
  • Stop in the middle of the road just to do burnouts, honk your horn, or do other things that would be considered annoying while an officer is on a traffic stop or speaking with another player.
  • Use a pistol to take down larger vehicles such as the helicopters and armored SWAT vehicles.
  • Taze a player through any rolled-up window/windshield/back window of a vehicle or through windows of a building this is not realistic.
  • Steal an NPC public safety vehicle.
  • Abuse a game mechanic in front of a cop.
  • Intentionally interfere with normal role play to cause trouble for the police. This would include officers dealing with a bank robbery, pursuit, or other incidents and players continue to get in the way or cause issues just so that they can get attention from the police.
  • Intentionally hit, ram, shoot, or otherwise act inappropriately toward police personnel without engaging in proper role play.
 
  • The crowding at the scene of a robbery will be considered cop-baiting and players who turn up to a after robbery is in progress and cause problems for officers will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.
