Good afternoon,
The government and myself have been having intense discussions recently and we have come to the agreement to bring forth some changes to the San Andreas Police Department.
We have followed the same rank structure for many years now, and only added or removed ranks in the lower structure of the department. After review we have come the conclusion that it wasn't the lower structure that was a potential issue, rather the higher ranks within the department.

We have therefore decided to scrap the following ranks from the police department, please read the complete document to get an understanding of the new process.
We will be removing the Chief of Police, Deputy Chief, and Lieutenant rank. This will be happening on a trial basis to see how smoothly the process will go without those ranks in the department.

The tasks of The Chiefs will be moving down to the captain rank, all their authority will be shared to those within the captain position, they will be in charge of the department together without a single department head.
Those that were previously Lieutenants or Captains will be moved down to Sergeant, Sergeants will be taking over a majority of the tasks previously done by Lieutenant and Captains and some of the tasks that Captains had shared will be now given to individual Sergeants.

Those that were currently in the Sergeant position have been moved down to Supervisory Officer for the time being. Only those that have shown extraordinary activities in the department lately will be remaining as a Sergeant until decided otherwise by the current Captains.

The goal of this change is to make the high command position more approachable. To no longer have anyone in the position for long durations of time without them being active within the department. It'll hopefully give the opportunity for people to be swapped in and out based on their current activity and effort put in to the department.  Hopefully this will also allow us to actually recognize those that put effort in to making this department a better place, and make it so they do not have to rely on impressing a single person that might, or might not like them or is actively around in the department.

If anyone has any questions, concerns or suggestions they are free to contact me through mail (Discord or forum PMs) or respond to this newsletter and I'll do my best to get back to everyone.

((For some OOC notes, Chief will most likely return in the future if this trial is successful but as a RP only position, they'll no longer be in charge of the department and we will no longer have to rely on one person to be active on the server. This'll also make it so that anyone will have a fair chance to work towards a position if they have the right mindset and put in the effort, rather than people being left out just because one person might not like them or does not pay attention to them.
Assignments to captain for now will be handled by server leaders (DLs/ CLs) or Commissioners. If you think you've got what it takes, feel free to contact me, but be aware, I'll only take in to considerations serious requests from people that are willing to help shape the department with this new system, not those purely looking after the highest rank. Perks of this new system also mean that if someone is not putting in effort, they can easily be demoted without a core position being left unattended as its much easier for those below them to take on the position.

As for those concerned why this is not being done to the FBI, this trial will first be ran within the SAPD, if successful it'll also be done to the FBI in a similar scheme to ensure both departments remain equal in authority. Currently captains will have the same authority level as Directors within the FBI to make sure no one is stepping on anyone elses toes.

I'll do my best to give more information to the SAPD discord soon, and the group access levels will be adjusted accordingly to ensure Captains and Sergeants have the appropriate access levels.
One more thing to add, with this new system, those that are in command positions of the department will have a higher workload, but also have more trust put in to them. This also means that if you are in one of those positions and abuse that privilege, heavier server sided punishments will come with that, and you might not only lose your position, but also access to the server.))

Los Santos Police Department
LSPD Command Update 05/10/2020

Server IP:
LSPD Discord Server

Dear LSPD Members,
I hope you have been enjoying some of the new features. Here is a brief rundown of news since the last Command Update. As usual feel free to discuss below.

LSPD Vision

I'm posting this each update to reflect on the progress we are making as a group.

1. To create a group of RPers that have fun together, are respected by the community and engage with fair roleplay. I want to make LSPD the best RP group.

LSPD has been the most stable and respectable group since the server launch in March/April 2020. The Officers continue to deliver good RP standards and activity and we have a steady amount of promotions that reflect the quality and activity.

2. To enable a variety of cop RP styles that are interesting and engaging. There is not one style fits all and those who can make positive impact in training and leadership will be rewarded.

I am doing away with the traditional model of official / unofficial subdivisions. Read below for more info!

To handle the vast majority of interaction ingame and not on the forum. This includes training, officer exams, punishment (cops and criminals alike).

A major part of LSPD communications happens on our Discord - click here to join!
The forum is being used for more permenant contributions - training guides, documentation and records for example.

Promotions and Demotions

Senior Officer [Rstar]Austin to Sergeant
Austin has shared his experience and knowledge in cop RP, and has been a consistently active role-model in the community in the last few months (and years).
To gain his promotion, Austin was given a challenge - to evade the LSPD force and some mercenaries for 10 minutes.
If he failed, he would be demoted. If he passed, he would gain the promotion.
After 10 minutes, Austin was still going strong with his driving skills, and even ended up putting an unfortunate cadet into the canal.

Officer Darius_Johnson to Senior Officer
Darius has given considerable time and effort into developing a number of programs in LSPD in a fairly short time. His experience and high activity has allowed him to engage with NOOSE, The Academy as well as the Detective Bureau. Very well deserved!


As per the recent feedback, 2 Senior Officers, 7 Officers and 4 Cadets were suspended due to inactivity over the last two months.
All officers suspended due to inactivity may be reinstated should they return to Los Santos and Blaine County.

LSPD Academy

The Academy is open and lead by Sergeant Megamidget, with Senior Officers Harzy and Darius Johnson providing training to players ingame.

Rank Structure

Due to overall low server activity the ranks have not yet been changed. If we start to see new recruits and see LSPD expanding, the ranks of Captain and Leiutenant will be reintroduced to manage LSPD.

As it stands, all Sergeants remain as the core LSPD command staff and are involved in decisions relating to the running of LSPD.


Activity of Command Staff

Chief [Rstar]Jcstodds - Active 2-3 nights per week and available on Discord.

[TCL]Mac - Very active ingame.
[TCL]Kawashty - Very active ingame.
Megamidget - Activity under review.
[Rstar]Austin - Very active ingame

Sergeant Megamidget's activity has been flagged and is under review for October 2020.

Activity of Cadets, Officers, and Senior Officers

Cadets, Officers and Senior Officers who are inactive for 2+ weeks without notice will be suspended.

Changes to LSPD Subdivisions

The official/ unofficial subdivisions system previously will be abolished to make way for a more experimental model in line with the groups system.
In short - anyone can apply to make a subdvision. If they are accepted, LSPD and server HQ will support the development of the subdivision. It's that simple.

We will be piloting this process with the Detective Bureau as they are the most stable and active subdivision.

Here are some things you can expect in terms of support:
+ LSPD Discord Category and channels with discord ranks matching your group structure. 
+ Direct discussion channel with LSPD Command Staff
+ Subdivision HQ can be purchased (work in progress)
+ Subdivision vehicles can be purchased to spawn permenantly on server - possibly at discount (work in progress)
+ Can request lore friendly vehicle mods to be considered (work in progress)
+ Can request script support (work in progress)

The new group system currently limits players to group although this may be changed in future.
The concept is simple, within our power and within reason, myself and LSPD will support cop related groups as subdivisions.

It is important to note, the LSPD chain of command will still take precedent over all subdivision activity.


The subdivision guidelines will be reviewed to reflect the new opportunities. 

New LSPD Vehicles

A number of custom LSPD and Blaine County themed vehicles have been introduced in the past month. Some are still locked away - and will be introduced through RP scenarios. Join ingame and organise with me to unlock these high performance PD cars and they will be set as permenant additions to the server.

I am open to all lore friendly car mods and skins to be added.

Moving forwards

As usual if you have any ideas for LSPD you would like to discuss, feel free to PM me directly or any of our Sergeants on discord.
I will be implementing these changes over the next few weeks.
