Leave of Absence

Introduction

LOA stands for Leave of Absence, you can take LOA from PoliceMP or from any division/department(s) you are in. LOA from PoliceMP will mean that you are no longer eligible to be removed from a division/department due to your absence on the server. To take LOA all you have to do is inform the relevant head of that division or department. (for example; if you’re a Police Constable but are in no divisions or departments you will speak to the Inspector of NPT).

How long can you take LOA for?

You must advise the appropriate people (division/department heads) with a reason why you are going on LOA (for example; Personal Reasons). LOA is authorised for a 2 week period at a time, maximum of two occasions in a three month period (special rules app).

Who can I tell to be put on LOA?

You can tell a division/department head that you’re on LOA and if you want to let other division heads know, that division head can tell them but it is recommended you tell them yourself so it comes from you instead of another person. If you do not want to tell a division/department head you can always go to a member of Silver Command (Chief Inspector, Superintendent or Chief Superintendent) and they will just tell the activity department you’re on LOA. You must also fill in the attached form.

What happens if I don’t give weekly updates?

If you don’t give weekly updates, someone from Silver/Gold Command will be in touch to get an update. If you do not respond to them within at least 2 weeks, you will be eligible for a role removal from divisions/departments you are in.

What if I get removed for not updating anyone?

If you get removed, you can always apply to become a Police Constable again but you will be put through the training again as you were inactive and it may have changed. Even if you got removed and you came back the next day, you will have to go through the training again no matter what.

Where is the LOA form for me to fill out?

Here is the link to the LOA form for Police Constables. Anyone can use this form if you do not feel comfortable telling your divisional inspector or sergeant. They will be informed you’re on LOA anyway by a member of Silver Command or Gold Command with a blunt reason (for example; @Cal is on LOA for 1 week, reason being Personal Reasons).

Leave of Absence should be submitted via the LOA form.
