Chicago Police Department Rules
The Chicago Police Department was created to ensure the safety of innocent citizens and suppress crimes in the city of Chicago. Thus, we must serve and protect the kind people of the city. Be sure to help conduct gameplay and be of assistance to anyone who needs information. Once you are accepted into the Chicago Police Department, remember to always have your name and red tag displayed for others to see. You must also wear the police uniform while being in Chicago. Detectives are exempt from this requirement.
Make sure to abide by the following important rules:
No Random KillingAnyone caught killing a citizen or member of a mafia will be warned, demoted, or suspended. We shall not tolerate members who kill players without a reason to do so.
Respect TurfsAny building that can be claimed as a territory shall not be entered by members of the Chicago Police Department without permission from the owning mafia or by having a warrant. Please note that members of the police department are not allowed to claim turfs. If you wish to gain money, please work at a job location. If the job is located in a turf, you may enter. Do not abuse this loophole to be able to enter the territory. Also, any off-duty members are not allowed to arrest or terminate anyone inside of the turf. If you are invited into the territory by the crime family who claimed the turf, you may arrest or terminate them if you are assaulted by them. Anyone found breaking this rule will most likely be exiled or demoted.
No False ArrestingAnyone that is caught arresting a player for no reason whatsoever will immediately be dealt with and most likely exiled. The reason must be valid such as arresting the player for murder, theft, or harassment. The details to each rule will be listed as follows:
Random Killing (RK) - The only reason why you should shoot a player is if they’re resisting arrest, not obeying verbal warnings, aiming a weapon at a player, or assaulting a player. If a member of the police department is discovered to be randomly killing players, they shall receive punishment such as a demotion and have their reputation and trust among Chicago Police Department lowered.
Respecting Turfs - The only methods of entering a turf under a police basis are through warrants which will be explained later. While achieving a warrant, anyone entering the turf is capable of being arrested. You may also terminate anyone holding a weapon inside of the turf while the operation is still in effect. If you are to visit the turf for the sole purpose of working, you mustn’t interfere with the families that are in the turf unless they kill a member of the Chicago Police Department that had a warrant. If you gain permission from the family that claimed the territory, you mustn’t interfere with the family with any method of doing so. Please remember that if the family murder any innocent players that are out of the property, you may terminate or arrest the criminal.
False Arrests - An example of a false arrest would be to cuff a player for annoying you, casually walking around you, or insulting a different player. You may arrest a citizen or crime family member if they’re assaulting a player, committing murder, admitting to committing a murder, theft, aiming a weapon at a player, harassment, and disobeying a verbal warning. The warning must be for the purpose of making the player drop a weapon, leave a vehicle that doesn’t belong to them, or cease attacking a player. To prevent bias, refrain from creating operations which involve crime families fighting against other crime families.
Police Car PolicyNote that simply because every member of the Chicago Police Department is able to spawn a vehicle, you should not spawn one unless needed to. Restrictions upon this will only allow for a maximum of one police cruiser in a peaceful server. For a rowdy server, two cars will be acceptable. Any requests for further amounts of vehicles will require both an need of approval from a member of the Chicago Police Department that has the position of lieutenant or higher.
Public AreasYou have a ability to patrol anywhere that there is a road or building located at that cannot be claimed by any crime families. Keep in mind that open carry of weapons is forbidden inside the bank, gun dealership, car dealership, police department, and city hall. This applies to members of the Chicago Police Department as well, unless they are ordered to carry on the duties for certain procedures. While on the streets of Chicago, weapons are allowed to be held as long as they're lowered, which you'd have to press "Q" to do. Bats are automatically considered lowered unless a player is attacking someone with it. Crowbars are not considered lowered, therefore, anyone failing to comply with the previous information will enter the process of the next protocol.
Escalation ProceduresWhen encountering a rule-breaker, do your best to fulfill the following template:
Step 1: The officer must halt the person without showing any force and respectfully ask them to stop the offensive behavior.
Step 2-A: If the offender has agreed and ceased the action within the first five seconds, the conflict is ended with only a warning.
Step 2-B: If the offender does not agree or does not stop the offensive behavior within the first five seconds, the policeman may warn the player, reminding them that they have broken a rule.
Step 3: If the conflict has escalated to this point, you may pull out cuffs or a provided firearm, but always keep this option for last and attempt to see if the act of persuasion will cause the offender to stop.
Step 4: If the previous step did not help or the offender attacks the officer, the usage of handcuffs is authorized if the offender is nearby.
Additional Notes: If the target runs away or resists arrest once the fourth step has been reached, the use of lethal force is authorized, as it is also allowed if the suspect pulls out a firearm and assaults the officer. If a player commits a crime and takes cover inside of a territory, you are allowed to follow them inside for the purpose of arresting that player.
