- Police MP Staff
1.1 - Play Friendly
We expect all of our players to “play nice” when on the server. All of our players are expected to follow a friendly & respectful attitude.
1.2 - Disrespectful or Discriminatory behaviour
Behaviour used to disrespect, discriminate against a person or persons, race, sexuality, etc. will not be tolerated in our community. Everybody should be treated equally regardless of race or views and people should not be disrespected.
1.3 - Role Playing
As this is a role playing server, we expect users to be able to roleplay. We give scripts and vehicles to use, but a certain level of imagination is required to make it entertaining for yourself and others.
1.4 - Slander
We don’t tolerate slander in this community. We only expect accusations to be made against members of our community when the correct procedure is followed through complaints etc.
1.5 - Personal Identity & Detail
Sharing maliciously, or “leaking”, personal identity or personal details about a person in the community without their full consent will result in a permanent ban from our community.
1.6 - Compliance
All players are expected to comply with rules and laws at all times and are also expected to follow orders / commands given from any staff members.
1.7 Script Abuse & Disclosure
We support the finding of bugs within our codebase however any bugs that are found should be reported to the development team appropriately with a set of reconstruction steps. Any abuse of this trust will be dealt with at the discretion of the PoliceMP staff team.
1.8 Staff members
Those ranked Moderator, Administrator, Community Manager, Developer or Founder are considered “staff members” in this community.
1.9 Spawning items
Players have the ability to spawn items such as traffic cones and barriers to aid in their day to day policing on the server. Placing them maliciously or placing them then disconnecting and failing to remove them is likely to result in punishment. You should also be considerate with your placement not to block any garages or public highways unless absoloutely required at the time.
2.0 Server Recruitment
It is heavily against the rules to recruit people from our community to join your community. We take a stance against this especially when it is FiveM/GTA communities. We also take a negative appropach to higher members of our community taking higher roles in other communities to aid in commitments.
2.1 - Driving in an appropriate manner
All officers are expected to drive in a legal and appropriate manner at all times unless responding to an emergency call, then should use correct driving methods depending on the situation. Officers are expected to show correct mannerisms whilst driving including slowing for junctions and preparing for AI or other players to potentially pull a dangerous move.
2.2 - Appropriate use of the taser
Officers should not discharge the taser unless absolutely required. Other methods of stopping a suspect should be explored before using the taser. It is also not allowed to use the taser on vehicles or other non-AI objects. Our staff team have a special taser that allows them to delete vehicles, you may see our teams using these.
2.3 - Appropriate use of the baton
Officers should use the baton appropriately. It should only be used when absolutely required, and used only enough to stop the suspect from being an immediate threat.
2.4 - Staff Discretion
Those ranked moderator or administrator have the discretion to make decisions on punishments and have the final say on punishments against players. Our staff members are told to be fair and are given the same training to be lenient where it is at all possible to do so since we all make mistakes and need to learn somewhere!
2.5 - Police / Player Complaints
Players should not attempt to interfere with complaints they have made, or complaints made against them. You will be given the chance to defend yourself. Bribery is also not tolerated in this community. All complaints follow the same process through Professional Standards Department and any attempt to halt or interfere with complaints is a largely punishable offence.
2.6 - Appropriate Roleplaying
Roleplaying that has the potential to make others feel uncomfortable is not tolerated. This could include erotic roleplay, racist roleplay, etc. This sort of roleplay should only be undertaken in certain circumstances with permission from all parties.
2.7 - Disconnecting
You should not disconnect from the server whilst actively in roleplay, or whilst your vehicle is inappropriately parked. Please park your vehicle appropriately when preparing to disconnect and ensure that you are not actively in roleplay. If your game crashes, we understand that is beyond your control.
2.8 - Rank respect
It is expected for members of the force to respect their superiors, but it is also expected that superiors respect those working under them too. General respect throughout the force is a requirement.
2.9 - Appropriate use of police vehicles
You should respect police vehicles and use them appropriately. Deliberately damaging police vehicles could result in punishment. Using vehicles that do not belong to you or you do not have access to is not allowed.
