OverviewCopy to clipboard

This page is here to help you learn the basics of roleplaying in this server. Within this page, you'll find not only the basic rules but also valuable information on maintaining a level of professionalism that is expected from an emergency worker.

Our server typically hosts roleplay events three to four times a week, occasionally more, featuring a diverse range of scenarios. This guide aims to equip you with the basic skills and knowledge essential for an effective roleplay.

RoleplayCopy to clipboard

In PoliceMP, we aim to bring some basic roleplay into our actions within the server. While doing this, it makes scenes more enjoyable for yourself and others, creating a richer and more immersive experience for everyone.

When playing on PoliceMP as an emergency worker, you must ensure that you are roleplaying as an emergency worker only. This page will include a few set of guidelines such as your communication style, on-scene conduct, and professionalism that is crucial. Only those who are civilian trained are allowed to intentionally create scenes. If you are not civilian trained, you should not be creating scenes.

How do I roleplay?

When roleplaying it is up to your imagination what you do, as long as you are following the rules and roleplaying as an emergency worker you have pretty much free reign on how and when you roleplay in the server. The extent or the level of your roleplay is completely up to you. If you want to create a character and build a story behind your character or if you simply just want to roleplay as any other emergency worker that is entirely up to you. Just be mindful that our civilian roleplays tend to be scripted, so if you prompt them and ask for things correctly, they will release information to you (most of the time)

You will not always be expected to roleplay with civilians right away. You are always more than welcome to explore interactions with AI if you need time to build up your confidence. We do not force roleplay within PoliceMP, at any moment to a certain extent, if you feel uncomfortable, you may request to end the scene or request to walk away.

How do I talk like an emergency worker?

When role playing as an emergency worker, it is crucial to able to convey a sense of professionalism and empathy. Our responsibility is to ensure that individuals feel heard and that we understand their situation. To achieve this, consider following communication as below:

  • Yes, I understand…
  • I’m sorry (for/that/etc)...
  • I can assure you that...
  • What do you feel we could do?
  • Is there anything I could do to...

We need to convey a genuine understanding of their emotions, making them aware that your presence it not merely to fulfil a requirement but to actively listen and respond to their needs.

Getting on their level

When communicating with others, especially victims, witnesses, patients, or suspects, it is important to work towards establishing trust. Always adapt your communication style with the person you are speaking with, using techniques like being a good cop or bad cop routine. Sometimes, it’s clear that an emergency worker isn't engaging or getting the interaction they need, it may be prudent to inter jack and try a new approach.

This approach create a stronger connection, making it easier for them to relate to you. Consequently, they may feel more inclined to share additional information, potentially disclosing more about themselves or providing more detailed statements. This rapport could also encourage them to report incidents to emergency services more willingly in the future.

You must always act like an emergency worker and have that sense of professionalism.

Making an Arrest

When arresting someone you must make sure you read their caution so the things that they say can be used in court.

“You do not have to say anything. But, it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.”
As the arresting officer, you must always search your suspect on scene under Section 32 of PACE before requesting for a prisoner transport. Once you are in Custody with your suspect, kindly inform the custody officer the contents of the Search. You may also say the below before your search:-

“Under Section 32 of PACE, I am now going to be searching you because you have been arrested for... Do you have anything on your persons that may harm me or my colleagues? If you fail to mention something that later harms me or my colleagues you may be charged with assault.”

ProfessionalismCopy to clipboard

When playing on the server you must show a sense of professionalism. This does not mean you can’t have fun, this simply means you need to remember you are roleplaying a emergency worker and that you must do things that an emergency worker may do.

If you do things an emergency worker won’t do, you MAY risk getting a warning from a moderator.

When playing on the server you need to show respect to your higher ranks as well as everyone else on the server. This is due to the roleplay as well as the simple rules.

Driving Standards

When driving in the server you are expected to follow the road laws at all times. If you are unsure on the road limits, you can expect city / single roads to be 30mph and larger roads to be 50mph. Use common sense, we expect you to not drive more than 100mph.

What happens if I don’t drive sensibly?

If you are caught driving inappropriately you may get a simple verbal warning or a strike on your record. However, this can be very detrimental to your career within PoliceMP if not taken seriously.

All divisions adopt the Moderation Policy when dealing with individuals who go against the expected standard and professional standard.

You can view the moderation policy here. The policy outlines the disciplinary process across all divisions in PoliceMP.

Speed Limits

These speed limits are guides. Use common sense and apply this guide accordingly

Road TypeSpeed limit
City Roads30-40mph
Sandy/Paleto Roads50mph

Blue Light Driving (Response Driving)Copy to clipboard

As a Police Officer, you are “exempt” from traffic laws if you are able to prove you are doing it within the best interests of the public or you have reasonable cause to do so as long as you are doing it safely.

You also are expected to turn your light and sirens on and respond to a scene at speeds higher than the speed limit.

If you are unable to justify your high speeds, you may face disciplinary action. Only do the speed you should be doing relative to the call!

When driving with lights and sirens you do not need to be travelling at max speeds adjust to your surroundings and perform your own risk analysis in your head. E.g small residential roads slow down, wet road conditions slow down!

DivisionSpeed Limit
ERT / DSU / CID+20mph
AFO / RTPCJustifiable speeds

Police Officer Medical Roleplay (DRcBC)Copy to clipboard

When performing medical roleplay there is a variety of injuries that you will come across in this document. We will cover the bare basics to teach you how to do medical roleplay in a general sense.


D - Danger

Before even attempting to perform medical RP, you must ensure that the scene has been secured and that you are able to perform medical safely. This will ensure that no one else will be injured causing a much more severe situation.

This can be done via road closures or a Police presence in a perimeter. As well as a perimeter make sure that all weapons have been collected by CID or AFO. You basically want to make sure you are Safe.

R - Response

Can the patient hear you, are they responding to what you say, do they feel any pain, can they feel your touch?

C - Catastrophic Hemorrhages

Does the patient have any active bleeds from any injuries they have sustained? This could be both internal or external, and is usually of severity. Has this contributed to significant blood loss?

A - Airways -
Are their airways clear? Do they have low SPO2% levels? Consider using tools such as a suction to clear any obstructions, or oxygen to increase SPO2% saturation levels.

B - Breathing -

Are they breathing? Is the chest rising & falling? Put your ear next to their mouth and look down their chest - can you feel their breath? If chest rise is uneven, they may have a punctured lung If not breathing, they are in cardiac arrest - begin CPR & rescue breaths

C - Circulation -
Are they actively bleeding? Is it arterial or venous bleeding? How can you reduce/stop it? You could use a tourniquet, dressings, pack the wound with gauze, etc...
