Leave of Absence
LOA stands for Leave of Absence. If you take LOA from PoliceMP, it will mean that you are no longer eligible to be removed from a division/department due to your absence on the server. LOA also means you cannot be on the server and using it as a method to deviate from division requirements is prohibited. There may be times where we allow for you to play the server and these are done on a case by case basis. To take LOA all you have to do is fill out the LOA Form attached to the bottom of the policy, and your command teams will be informed (for example; If you are a firearms officer, AFO Command will be informed of your start and end date).
How long can you take LOA for?
Although you don't have to advise the command (division/department heads) with a reason as to why you are going on LOA (for example: Personal Reasons), it is nice to keep them up to date. LOA is authorised for a 2 week period at a time, maximum of two occasions in a three month period (special rules app). LOA means a break from PoliceMP, meaning you will not be on the server. These rules will be policed strictly by the Head of Moderation and Senior Management.
Who can I tell to be put on LOA?
You don't need to speak to command to be put onto LOA. You must follow the link at the bottom of this page, submit your LOA and your command will automatically be notified. If you hold the rank of Band 1 Trainer, it is important to liaise with your command to ensure we do not affect the operations of the division training during your absence.
Do I need to give bi-weekly updates?
You must inform all division/department heads bi-weekly that you are still on LOA. This will make sure you are not subject to division requirements and you cannot lose your roles.
Abuse of this policy will result in the LOA role being removed without notice and potential removal from your division(s). You will have the right to appeal via a general support ticket.
Please remember, it is your responsibility to inform command of your LOA bi-weekly, failure to do so will still count towards eligibility for role removal.
What happens if I don’t give bi-weekly updates?
If you don't give bi-weekly updates, someone from band 2/3 will be in touch to get an update. If you do not respond within 24 hours, you will be messaged by Head of Moderation via a temp ticket. You will also become eligible for role removal from your divisions/departments that you hold during this time.
What if I get removed for not updating anyone?
If in the events you get removed from your divisions, you have the option to appeal. All appeals will go to the Head of Moderation/SM. Failing you are unsuccessful with your appeal, you can always remain a Police Constable. Due to server changes and development, you may be requested to be put through the training again.
Where is the LOA form for me to fill out?
Below is the link to the LOA form for PC/LAS/LFB+. Anyone can use this form to acquire the LOA tag.
Although you dont need to inform your command of your LOA starting, it is always nice to keep them up to date.
How does activity work when I take LOA?
When you take LOA, your activity for that month is based on how many days you were not LOA. For example, if you take LOA on the 15th of the month, you would be subject to half of the monthly requirements. This is to ensure the LOA tag is not taken advantage of, and in the end, used as a way to deviate from any requirements.
Leave of Absence should be submitted via the LOA form.
