    Negotiations Summary: Police may initiate or accept negotiations from criminals under certain circumstances. Criminals and police are not allowed to bait with negotiations. If the highest ranking officer is not interested in accepting any offer, the police are required to inform the criminals immediately upon negotiation request. Once something is agreed upon by both parties, both parties must adhere to the agreement. Examples: Dave is robbing the bank and the highest ranking officer online believes the force can easily respond, he can deny all negotiation request. A large group is robbing the research facility, the highest ranking officer agrees to terms. Both parties must now follow the agreed terms exactly. How To: If the police want to negotiate with criminals, they should try and do so before all of the damage is done. If criminals want to negotiate with police they should give the police a few minutes to respond before beginning the activity (planting C4 / safecracker). Police MUST respond to a negotiation request, they are not allowed to begin responding to an activity until a response has been sent to the criminal group. Negotiations are valid if done in TS in the negotiation channel, through text messages in-game, or through direct communication in-game. Negotiations made against members of the same clan must be approved by other unaffiliated officers online at the time. The leading officer is responsible for all negotiations made while they are online. They will be held accountable for unbalanced negotiations. Examples: The police can see a large criminal presence at the bank and think a negotiation might be needed, they should attempt to organise this before engaging in combat. A rebel group want to attempt to negotiate a bank robbery. They must message the police with their request and receive a reply before planting the C4. Criminals have asked to negotiate a bank robbery. The police are not allowed to quickly respond to the bank before the criminals have been replied to with an answer. Dave has officer Nick on Steam and negotiates something. This is not allowed, as steam chat is not a valid communication channel. [777] Pete wants to negotiate with the cops. The leading officer is also in the [777] clan. Other officers must agree before the negotiation becomes official. Conditions: Things that can be gained by civilians in negotiations are: Police vehicles, Police weapons, Police Y inventory items (excluding weapons or ammo packs), Jail release (either through the menu or by letting someone escape through a riot), Bounty removal, Being allowed to complete a (victimless) illegal activity. Examples: Dave requires a Hunter as a getaway vehicle. If he gets this vehicle and safe passage away, he will leave the hospital robbery without combat. John has stolen the police MCU. The police offer him 2 weapons if he returns it. John agrees and the trade is made. Jimmy orders that the police provide him with an offroad containing 300 frosted donuts. If they do this, he will leave the checkpoint he is currently holding. A criminal group says they will cease illegal activities for one hour if their friend is released from prison. Bank robbers ask if they can take just 5 money bags once the bank blows, then they will leave without combat. If the police agree 5 is the max amount of bags the criminals are allowed to take.

    Base Building Destruction Base Building Destruction: Police are allowed to use the destroy feature on player placed assets if one of the following conditions are met: The police can destroy a flagpole whenever they see it and combat has occurred has in the area. This item is illegal at all times. The object is blocking an entryway into a building that criminals are inside of. You need to breach part of a wall to get into an area (you should not destroy the whole wall, just the sections that you need to enter through). The object is currently being used to assist criminal activity (rearming or refuelling areas). You must have a strong valid reason to believe the items have been illegally used. The object is on what the police deem to be somebody else's land. Evidence will need to be provided, and a ranking officer will be held responsible if the police are wrong. Any object that the Chief of Police has deemed to be in an illegal area. Examples: A group has walls around a compound. You may breach through multiple sections, destroying a maximum of three walls. A person has two layers of fences over his front door. You have the right to destroy both layers to gain access to his house. You see a Pawnee rearming at a rearm crate. You may destroy it. There are rebels inside of a bunker hiding from you. You may not destroy it to gain access, however, if the bunker was used as a defence it may be destroyed if the police win the situation (the police cannot return later on and destroy it).

    Checkpoints Checkpoint Procedure: There are 4 static checkpoints on the map. Manning these will give you a payment every 10 minutes. Rebels can also take over these checkpoints, so it is advised that police show great care in protecting these areas. The proper procedure when a civilian arrives at a police checkpoint is the following: Have the civilian safely bring the vehicle to a stop, and turn off their engine. Ask the driver and any passengers if they have any weapons. Ask the driver and any passengers to exit the vehicle. If they have weapons, do not immediately tase/restrain them. Instead, tell them to holster their weapons and give them a reasonable amount of time to do so. Identify them, and ask them where they are headed to and from. Perform a search of them, and their vehicle's T inventory. After the search has concluded, you may allow them to re-enter their vehicle and continue driving. If anything illegal is found, the person can be ticketed/arrested as per normal. Building Checkpoints: For a police-made checkpoint to be classified as a checkpoint, it must meet all the following criteria: Has bar gates across the road (open or closed). Clear lighting leading up to the checkpoint to slow vehicles down safely. Ambient lighting does not count. The checkpoint must be clearly manned when a player approaches. You can't charge someone for avoiding what they thought was an empty checkpoint. The checkpoint must be there before any vehicles that are being searched. You can not build a checkpoint around a situation.

    Arresting and Ticketing Arresting: You may not arrest someone if you have given them a ticket and they have paid it. You must tell the suspect why they are being arrested before you arrest them. If a civilian is wanted, you may arrest them. Do not kill them unless the situation falls under the 'Use of Lethal Force' section. Ticketing: Tickets must be a reasonable price. Ticket prices should be based on the crimes committed (their bounty). Refusal to pay a legitimate ticket is grounds for arrest. Giving a civilian an illegitimate ticket, such as a $100K ticket for speeding, is not allowed, and will result in your removal from the force.

If there are not three whitelisted officers online, an area can be raided with one or two officers of any rank, provided that all online officers are present at the raid. Police must have their lights AND sirens on when entering a raid zone in order to announce their presence to the people inside. A raid cannot be done if the server uptime is less than 20 minutes. All civilians and vehicles seen in a raid zone can be searched during a raid, including vehicles that have left the raid zone after the commencement of a raid. If illegal items are found during a search, you may proceed to arrest/fine as usual. Lethal force is only authorised in a raid as described under the 'Use of Lethal Force' rules. After the raid area is secure, the officers must leave the area. Gang Hideouts/Drug Fields: All of the general raid rules apply to the raiding of gang hideouts/drug fields. You can not re-raid a gang hideout or drug field for 20 minutes after it was previously raided.

The 'raid' feature on the AI at the Faction HQ can only be used once per real life day, and only between the hours of 3 PM and 9 PM AEDT. An officer must remain within 20m of the AI to complete the raid mission. A raid is not needed if you have declared on, and are chasing someone into a Faction HQ. Rebels must have walking access to the building during a Faction HQ raid. Building items must not prevent this. Rebels should not have to jump, vault or crawl to enter the building. Rebel KOS Zone and Clan Bases: All of the general raid rules apply to the raiding of the Rebel KOS Zone. A clan base in the Rebel KOS Zone can be raided at any time while the Rebel KOS Zone is currently being raided by the police. A clan base can only be closed down during a raid if combat has occurred with the base owners in the area during the raid. If there are less than 10 response officers online at the start of a raid on the Rebel KOS Zone, all officers can break NLR once during the same raid. If all officers in the raid area die, the raid is over, unless the MCU is still present in the area. Police are allowed to use any armed land/sea vehicle during a raid on the Rebel KOS Zone. Armed air vehicle restrictions still apply. Player Houses: A player's house can be raided if the house is at a crime scene. A player's house can be raided if a wanted criminal is seen entering the house.

    Use of Lethal Force Use of Lethal Force: Use of lethal force is only ever permitted for the protection of your own life, another officer's life or a civilian's life, and only if non-lethal force would be ineffective. Discharging of a weapon when not under threat is not allowed. Officers caught in violation of this procedure will be suspended from the force. Satchel charges are only to be carried/used during martial law. The execution of any civilian is never allowed, as killing is to happen during combat only. This does not apply if the person in question is an enemy of the state. Examples: Sniping somebody off the roof of a hospital before any fire has been taken is a misuse of lethal force. The use of lethal force on somebody as a first response to any situation is a misuse of lethal force. Using lethal force when you are outnumbered (after other officers have died) is acceptable as protection of your life. Use of RPGs: An RPG can be used when shooting an armoured vehicle. An RPG can be used when shooting at an armed vehicle, or people working with an armed vehicle.

    More to come.... More memes coming. I don't like being serious to much
