  2. Department Organization

    How's it going everyone? Thought I would stop by and drop a police department structure I've been adapted over the years of my Digital Policing career. Pretty much have been doing digital law enforcement for GTA 4 LCDPFR RP and GTA 5 FiveM RP for about 7 years and this is the system I have found to work best. A lot of this information is pulled from a Officer Handbook that I have compiled over time. Pretty much going to initially cover Rank Structure and Department Units, however if someone would like me to add in other information I might be up for it. Rank Structure Command Staff Chief of Police / CoP ( ) – The Chief of Police (COP) is the highest-ranking officer in the Police Department. The COP is responsible for the planning, efficient administration, and operation of the Police Department. Assistant Chief of Police / ACoP ( ) - The Assistant Chief of Police (ACoP) assists the Chief of Police with management and operations of the Police Department. The Assistant Chief is the Officer in Charge of the department in the Chief’s absence. Administrative Staff Captain / Cpt ( ) - A Captain is assigned a designated bureau (Patrol, Special Operations, etc.) to which they have complete power of for efficient management and control. May schedule bureau wide meetings. Lieutenant / Lt ( ) - A Lieutenant is assigned as an assistant to a Captain to help with management and operations of a designated bureau. A Lieutenant will take control of the bureau in Captain's absence. May schedule bureau wide meetings. Supervisory Staff Sergeant / Sgt ( ) - A Sergeant is the primary supervisory position in the department and is required to provide instruction to assigned staff in the operation of their required duties. The basic capacity of a Sergeant is patrol supervision, but administrative and specialized assignments are also available. Police Officer III+I / POIII+I ( ) - After a month of being a Police Officer III and having served for three months in the department one becomes eligible to apply for the Supervisor Program. After passing the application and completing the interview they can embark on the Supervisor Program and receive their promotion to Police Officer III+I (SLO), a rank held exclusively by those embarking on SP. During this time, they will be tasked with basic field supervision and administrative tasks and will be mentored and trained by current Sergeants to become future Sergeants. Officer Ranks Police Officer III / POIII ( ) - After a month of being a Police Officer II, an officer becomes eligible for the promotion to Police Officer III. A Police Officer III is responsible for enforcing laws and ordinances; protecting life and property; issuing citations, making arrests, preparing reports; meeting with community members; working as a team member; and providing information to the public and departmental units. Police Officer II / POII - A Police Officer II performs basic duties such as: responding to the scene of a crime or an accident; interviewing suspects and witnesses; writing crime reports; responding to radio calls; monitoring any suspicious activity of ongoing crimes; coordinating vehicular traffic; visiting open businesses such as banks, markets, department stores, and service stations to establish a rapport with owners; booking suspects and evidence and transporting them to the appropriate Police Department facility; responding to citizens’ and visitors’ questions; and preparing Daily Field Activity Reports. Police Officer I / POI - The next step in the career ladder with the Police Department is Police Officer I. It is the rank given to all officers upon completion of the Training Program which consists of the Police Academy and FTO Phase. This rank is considered a probationary position. Cadet / Trainee - In the Police Academy, Cadets are taught criminal law, civilian interaction, and police procedure. In addition, they are trained in report writing, firearms, and driving. In the FTO Phase, Trainees continue to gain on the job experience and get one on one training with a senior officer. A Trainee will automatically advance to Police Officer I upon successful completion of the Field Training Program. Department Units Patrol Bureau The Patrol Bureau is the front line of the force and the largest unit within the department. The Patrol Division is composed dedicated and hardworking individuals that work to ensure smooth and effective community policing. These officers are under the supervision of one Captain and one Lieutenant who oversee all operations of the division. All new hires are detailed to Patrol upon the approval of their application and will be guided to success by supervisors and fellow members. Patrol Officers are responsible for patrolling the city, responding to routine calls for service, emergency responses, traffic enforcement, and maintaining a positive police presence throughout the city. Patrol Officers are the first point of contact for victims of crime and offenders. Usually what I like to do with the Patrol Division is have a Sergeant as a Squad Leader that has 5-10 Officers assigned to him. Prefer to keep it no more than 5 for low work load with management of your team (tracking activity, giving addition training, mentoring, etc.). Each Sergeant would report to the Patrol Lieutenant or Captain. Special Operations Bureau Here's an example of some of the specialty units that have been deployed over the years. There are others that could be added to this list but its unknown at this time if Identity will have the features to warrant having those units. Officers are allowed to apply to specialty units after holding the rank of POII for at least 2 weeks. With specialty units most people are only limited to one. There are a few cases where multiple specialty units can be combined like Traffic and Canine. S.W.A.T. members can also be apart of other divisions since it is a part-time unit. Traffic Unit The Traffic Unit is a unit of Patrol Officers dedicated to traffic related incidents. From aggressive traffic enforcement, DUI checkpoints, accident response and investigation, to aggressive pursuit intervention, Traffic Unit is here to ensure the roads and highways of remain safe for all drivers. Canine Unit The K-9 Unit provides a team of highly trained Officers & Canines capable of performing a variety of functions from narcotics and explosives detection, all the way to tracking suspects. Street Crimes Unit Street Crimes specializes in both apprehension of criminals as well as crime suppression. Officers are field trained for crime investigation and crime interception. They also specialize in sting operations and work closely with the SWAT to apprehend criminals. S.W.A.T. The SWAT team responds to various tactical events such as narcotics and prostitution stings, "jump outs", active shooters, and armed robbery response. Officers are trained in various fields such as building entry & clearing, crisis negotiation, aerial deployments, and long-range marksmanship. Administrative Bureau This third bureau is usually monitored and lead by the Chief and Assistant Chief in smaller departments. In larger departments a Captain is put in place to supervise the lead officers of the Administrative Divisions. Officers are allowed to apply to FTO after holding the rank of POII for at least 2 weeks. Officers can apply to HR and IA at the rank of POIII. Field Training Officers (FTOs) Field Training Officers have significant additional responsibilities over and above their law enforcement duties when assigned to train a new officer. In addition to performing in an exemplary manner, while trainees closely watch, FTOs must slow their pace to review the purpose and detail of every new encounter. FTOs must guide trainees through a comprehensive curriculum that requires the blending of knowledge and skills, and the good judgement of when, where, and how to apply them. Human Resources Human Resources staff are tasked with processing applications, conducting interviews, and maintaining personnel data (important dates, disciplinary action logs, patrol activity). Internal Affairs Internal Affairs is a division of the that investigates and makes decisions on cases brought forward by the public regarding the conduct, actions, policy, procedure, practice, philosophy, service or legal standard of the department or an employee thereof.
  3. [Guide] Supply and Demand

    Supply and Demand Hey everyone, I hope you are all as excited for this game as I am. This community is thriving and very friendly and supportive, so I have decided to write a quick overview of a market force called Supply and Demand, to help people who don't know much about economics learn. What is Supply and Demand? Supply and Demand is possibly the most influential market force in economics and business. On the surface, It's quite intuitive, honestly; and it has to do with businesses that focus on production and marketing. (For any business where you are selling something, this is important). Basically, Supply is the amount of product that your business has (and is willing to sell). Demand comes from the consumers, and is reflective of how "popular" your item is. (Or, more specifically: "An economic principle that describes a consumer's desire and willingness to pay a price for a specified good or service") How do they interact? On the surface, it might seem like Supply and Demand have a very simple relationship. However, it's not as simple as 'if one goes down, the other one goes up'. There are other variables that influence this trend. The two main ones are Price and Service (Quality). However, before we look at Price and Service, let's look at how Supply and Demand interact if Price and Service stay constant: High Demand + High Supply This is a very good outcome for your product, and will allow your business to grow and prosper. This means that you have a surplus of your product, but people want to buy them. This keeps the price stable, and allows your business to prosper, and your product to become more popular. This is great for any growing business, and what you should shoot for to start off, (Technically you can't really control Demand too much, without lowering the price, so if you want to make a profit, make sure you are selling something quality, that people will want to spend their money on). [IRL Example: Gasoline] (<-- People need it, and there is a good supply of it) High Demand + Low Supply This is most likely the ideal outcome for your product, but is a gamble, and also takes a long time to get established (Unless you are unbelievably lucky). High Demand and Low Supply allows the price of your product to skyrocket, guaranteeing you massive profits. It is true that you will be selling less of your product, but since the price is so high, you will make up for selling less of your profit. However, it is hard for something like this to get situated. I'll provide a specific real world example: Yeezys. This is a shoe brand that makes a small amount of their product when they are release, but sell them at ridiculous prices. However, the demand is so high, that the shoes sell out in seconds. The shoes most likely don't cost very much to make (although they are quite well made); however, due to skillful branding and marketing, they make incredible profits. Wait a second... You might be asking yourself; "If these shoes are cheap to make and everyone wants them, and they sell out so quickly, why doesn't the shoe company just keep the price the same, and make more of them to sell?" Well, if this worked, then the company that makes Yeezys would start mass producing them at extreme rates. The reason this doesn't work is because increasing supply will lower demand, especially if that product relies on being rare to have value. In this specific case, people buy Yeezys because it gives them a sense of class; their worth comes from the shoes themselves, but is amplified by the fact that not very many people have Yeezys. If suddenly more and more Yeezys are available for people to buy, more and more people will have access to them. The people who once thought they were a higher class because of the shoe they wore (which I think is asinine, but that's my personal opinion, and my friends say this is the main reason they buy expensive shoes), now see more people wearing Yeezys, and the worth decreases for them. This means that Demand will fall, and the company that creates Yeezys will be forced to decrease the price of their shoes for more people to buy them. Low Demand + Low Supply This is bad, like, really bad. This is how most small businesses fail in their infancy. The business doesn't have enough resources to create much of their product, so they are forced to raise the prices so that they can break even, and pay their Overhead (Overhead = What they paid to start their business in the first place). However, since they are forced to have high prices for their product (Which hasn't gained much popularity since it's new), the Demand drops, and the company is doomed to fail. The only way this can be fixed is to: (A): Drop that product and make a new one, that people will want to buy, and is realistically profitable; or (B): Drop the price of the product. This will make your company go into even more debt, but will give your product the chance to gain in popularity, subsequently allowing your to raise the price later. (This is very risky though, and can potentially ruin you even more). [Real life example: Rare, but useless metals, or materials] ((Sorry I couldn't think of something better, can someone comment below something with Low Supply and Low Demand that is prominent in today's society?)) Low Demand + High Supply If you thought Low + Low was bad, well, it gets worse. Imagine you start a business, and you pour a ton of money into it, to make a large amount of a product that you think will catch hold and have a demand. You are able to make a ton of your product, (which cost you a lot of money), but nobody wants to buy it. Now you are stuck with a large surplus of an item that you can't sell, (at a profitable price), and you are forced to sell it for a cheaper price. (Sometimes people don't even want it when it's cheap, and that is just a total failure). Price and Service and how they factor in: Price and Service factor in intuitively; If you increase the price of a product, Demand decreases, which increases the supply of the product, and decreases an overall profit of the product. (As in, the individual profit will increase, but the product as an entire whole will decrease, as less people will spend money on it). (Technically, only part of Demand decreases. The customer's desire to buy the product stays the same, but their willingness to buy the product decreases, and if you want to get really into it, the customer's desire actually increases as price increases, since people want to have something worth a lot of money, (Only if it is something of material value), However, this is getting too complicated for an overview, and I only know the basics myself anyways.) If the price of a product decreases, the Demand increases, however this lowers the supply of the product, and also decreases individual profits. Now for service (or quality); If the quality of the product is high, then people will want to buy it, and the price can be increased. However, if you are selling a low quality product, the demand will decrease (Unless it's fast food, which is an anomaly, and relies on other factors, that I will get into now). Other forces that are a variable in supply and demand Of course, Economics cannot be simple, and there have to be a ton of hidden variables in determining a product's success. These include, (but are definitely not limited to:) Marketing / Branding Convenience Necessity (These are the main ones, I can't think of any more right now, but please comment below and I will add them) Marketing Put simply, you could have the best product in the entire world, with a low price, and a desire from people to buy that product. However, if nobody knows about that product, nobody is going to buy it. This is where Marketing comes in. People need to know what you are selling, and you need to convince them that your product is great. This can be done in a variety of ways, and in the real world, marketing officers are paid millions of dollars to come up with advertisements, or even unnoticeable jingles or phrases, that secretly manipulate consumers into spending their money. (Example: McDonalds jingle; "da da da da da I'm lovin it", whenever you hear that, you think of McDonalds; whenever you think of McDonalds, you think of food. Now that you are thinking of food, you realize: "Hey, I'm pretty hungry, I'm gonna go take a stop at Micky D's!) Branding Branding is similar, but not really. Branding means attaching a name to a product that has significance. This makes a giant impact in the clothing industry. A shirt is just a shirt, but if it has "Calvin Klein" on the logo, it suddenly is worth more...(But is it? That's the power of branding, a name adds more "worth" to a product). Some companies also do this with celebrities. They will hire a famous person to rave about their product, and to be a star of their commercial (Subway is especially notorious for this). People watching the cartoon think "Wow, that person is my idol, and he likes Subway? I'm going to go buy 23 Subway footlongs to show that I'm just like Michael Phelps! (Michael Phelps has been in so many Subway commercials I have lost count) Convenience Convenience is exactly what you think it would be. Fast food is terrible quality, but it is cheap and convenient, so it has a high demand. Fast food joints added drive-thru's because they make Fast food even faster, which adds more consumers, and subsequently more revenue. Necessity Necessity is also exactly what you think it would be. People don't buy gasoline for their cars because they want to, they buy it because they need gasoline for their cars to run. This makes the demand skyrocket, and allows the demand to stay very high. (Gasoline isn't an ideal example, since you don't need gas to survive, so it's not a complete necessity. A better example is Food.) Basic food items, water, housing, etc. will always have an extremely high demand, since they are needed to survive. So that's it! Thank you guys SO MUCH for reading this, and even if you didn't, thank you for viewing this anyways Please comment below anything I can do to improve this guide, and if I was wrong about something, please correct me in the comments (I would appreciate if it was constructive), and I will do my best to amend this guide so that everyone can have a better understanding of Economics!
  4. Hey fellow Law Enforcers With this topic I'd like to inform and assist you in understanding and creating a police department. It's important that departments are organised and have a structure to ensure officers are appointed to tasks and supervisors ensure tasks are completed. While rank structure is an important part of your department, it's also important to have a good divisional structure. Hopefully at the end of the text you're a bit wiser on how a police department works. We'll start of with Police Ranks. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Hierarchy Staff Officers Chief Of Police - In charge of the department and handles public relations with other departments aswell as controls internal procedures and protocolsDeputy Assistant Chief Of Police - In charge of the department when the Chief of Police is on absence Deputy Chief of Police - In charge of a large part of the department, known as an Office. Example: Office of Operations or Office of Counter Terrorism Command Officers Commander - In charge of a training within the department. Example: Sergeant In Training or Detective In Training Captain - In charge of a precinct or leads all patrols within a certain area and acts as a supervisor to supervisors. Lieutenant - In charge of a larger division and serves as city wide/ patrol wide supervisor. Supervisor Sergeant - In charge of smaller divisions or head of certain aspects within divisions. Alse the first contact point for basic officers Senior Lead Officer - A non commissioned officer who is in training to become either a supervisor or detective.. Investigator Detective In Charge - In charge of a investigation division and will handle day to day requests from lower ranked Detectives. Also in charge of casefiles. Detective - Basic detective who investigates crimes after they happened and observes organised crimes Senior Lead Officer - A non commissioned officer who is in training to become either a supervisor or detective. Non Commissioned Officers Police Officer III - Patrol officer who teaches the new officers the way around the department. Police Officer II - Basic Patrol officer who makes up most of the department. Police Officer I - Newly inducted Police Officers who are in their probationary stage and learn the way of the department. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Hierarcy With the previous mentioned hierarcy the base of your department should be filled. However it is always possible to adjust the ranks towards the need of your department. For example you can create a Senior Sergeant who would be a basic sergeant, but in training to become a Lieutenant. Another example is a Lieutenant I and Lieutenant II. Where the I would ensure larger divisions are kept under control the Lieutenant II would handle a precinct or multiple patrols. Ranks also work hand in had with your organisation. For example if you have 7 divisions it might be wise to have 7 lieutenants or a few lieutenants of the bigger divisions and sergeants of the smaller divisions. It's important to know your department, because some divisions will require more intense handeling than others. Warrants and searches require more knowledge of the penal code and law than a traffic division. For that reason it's better to have a Lieutenant handle the Investigation divisions and a Sergeant the Traffic Division. The higher the rank the more legal and situational knowledge a person must have. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Organization Chart _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Organization Know your department and its needs! It's very important to ensure your department has a wide arrangement of divisions people can join so their day to day tasks are never the same and never boring. A good structure is most needed in the department and every part of it has a person controlling it. Divisions by Sergeants, Large divisions by Lieutenants, Precincts by Captains, Offices by Deputy Chiefs and at the top the Chief of Police. The way a good structure works if that a basic officer will not have to complain to the Chief of Police. If he has a problem he should go to his appointed sergeant. If he can not solve it, the sergeant goes to his superior and so on. Because there are limited amounts of divisions in an Office there will be a good overview of them all. It's important that the division leader reports to the Office leader and the Office leader to the Chief of Police. Ensure to give your Deputy Chief of Police enough power to change his Office by only having to inform the Chief of Police with the changes. This way there is more control and better support for every division and they will know who too contact when there is a problem. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ GENERAL NOTICE: If you have comments or have questions about a certain aspect within the police department, you can always ask it here. I'll try to give a good answer to every question asked. Obviously if your question is important, it will also be added in the topic along with the explanation. If you have certain subjects to add aswell you can always PM me and it will be added into the topic along with credits too your name. This topic is aimed to give a detailed guide on how to make or understand a police department and hopefully the community works with eachother to give tips to other servers. Sorry for possible writing errors
  5. Police Organization Chart

    Hey Guys, I wanted to share with you a Police Organizational structure. The purpose of this guide is to provide you with the tools you need to succeed either through running your own server or running your department. How many times have you seen player governments and player police departments have SOOOO many people just to run a small department? This guide helps circumvent the same struggle with simple organization. This guide uses the Incident Command System, much like the one used in real life by virtually every police department in the United States. The Structure: This Structure identifies the Police Chief as being the top of communication for the department. Notice that no arrows cross without going through the chief first. A Captain from Interdiction has no ability to communicate with the Captain of Traffic without first going through the Chief. In other words, The Captain of Interdiction has no command and control over any other department. Neither do the Captains or LT's of the other departmental functions. This can be used as a chain of command, as well as it can be used as an organizational structure. Break your departments up into 3 groups. The best way to do this is to use: Interdiction, Traffic, and Training. Below these groups can be any of the special functions of those sections. For Example, Interdiction can house a LT for Drug Interdiction, another LT for Firearms Interdiction, and a third LT for Criminal Interdiction. The traffic Captain can have separate sub departments as well such as Motorcycle patrol, walking officers, and armed escorts. The Captain of training can have special weapons training, high angle rescue, and reports. The sky is the limit to which sub-departments you want your officers to have. The point is to organize these departments in their respective places. It allows for communication and it will cut down dramatically on your drama within the department. There is no need for an assistant chief with this system. This is a 1:3 Structure and can easily be expanded into a 1:4-1:7 if needed for department size. Questions? Comments?
  6. The thing about ideas

    I have noticed a lot of hateful comments when new members to the forums are posting ideas. Like it or not, we are all members of a community now. This cannot be done with one person. We strive off of ideas and comments from others. Please do not post hateful or outrageously negative comments about someone or their ideas. Please DO NOT tell them to go play some other game because they want their experience to be similar to another game's experience. Ideas from other games are always used. Just because it is not your opinion, does not mean that someone else shouldn't request or suggest their own opinions. Having said that, negative feedback is just as good as positive feedback. Be constructive with your criticism. Remember that your criticisms can be taken so wrong that a new member of the community may feel alienated and not welcome. I am positive that the devs and the staff members of this community do not want to alienate their players. This is a business and if you truly want to help with your opinions on others ideas, remember that it is a business. Be serious, be polite, and be courteous to others.
