[V:MP] LSPD Command Update 05/10/2020
« on: October 03, 2020, 18:09:54 pm »

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.
