Roleplay Policy

This document will outline the PoliceMP roleplay policy, which will aim to try and set clear standards and rules of Roleplay within the Server.

PoliceMP is primarily based on CIV scenes set up and run by our CIV Trained playerbase. We try to create a scene which will provide as much enjoyment as possible. CIV aim to create a richer and more immersive experience for all.

What is Roleplay?

Within the PoliceMP Server, we try to incorporate some basic roleplay within our actions in the Server. This is to allow for you to try and grab enjoyment out of an event as well as allow others around you to enjoy the event thoroughly.

There are two elements to roleplay. Civilian RP and Officer RP

When playing on PoliceMP as a Police Officer you must make sure you are roleplaying as a Police Officer only. The same goes when you are a NHS, Fire and Auxiliary. This will include a few set guidelines that we will be talking about further in the document like the way you drive; The way you speak to others, and the processes you may take within a Scene. Only trained persons can perform civilian role play, whether that's their own scene or a planned event.

Officer RP is outlined in the Basic Roleplay guide.

Chain of Command

  • Senior Management
  • Director of CIV
  • Head of CIV
  • Deputy Head of CIV
  • Asst Head of CIV
  • Senior CIV
  • CIV Trained

Training Levels

Civ RP consists of two levels, CIV Trained and Senior CIV. The purpose behind CIV and Senior CIV is that they can assist with the approval of certain scenes, like costumes, animal peds, gang related scenes and parachuting. Senior CIVs are also there to assist with the planning of scenes should you need assistance as a CIV Trained player.

Senior CIVs also have fire permissions to assist CIVs in setting fire scenes for LFB


Detaining: All CIVs should acknowledge that once they are cuffed, they are cuffed. They cannot escape whilst being detained. However, CIVs are allowed to resist to a certain extent (i.e. being difficult towards police) to allow for more roleplay for other divisions such as TSG. If the cuffing script is bugged, all CIVs should recognise their detainment from verbal commands and/or /me in text chat.

You should provide a valid name when being booked in, or give your details when you are fingerprinted. Without ID being present prior to having your fingerprint scanned, feel free to provide a name of your choice verbally. You may provide a false identity but you MUST give police the real one if they fingerprint you or use any other method to identify you. All CIV characters should be on CAD prior to scenes taking place.

Escape Considerations

Handcuffed - if you haven't been handcuffed, or detained, you may attempt to escape. If you have been placed in the back of a police vehicle, you cannot attempt the escape.

Being Searched - If you have been searched by the Police before your escape attempt you will no longer have access to your property, such as your phone or cigarettes. There would be no way for you to coordinate an escape with someone else in this situation, so should be avoided if talking in Discord. Be sure you are carrying or possessing a realistic amount of belongings on your person or vehicle during your search.

Non lethal shotgun (bean bag) - If you are struck by a Bean Bag shotgun you will need to factor injury, or at least simulate having an impact.

Tackle - If ‘tackled’, consider that you are pinned and detained. If the Police then fail to handcuff you or hold you, then you can attempt to escape.

Taser - If you are tasered it will take time to recover before trying to escape. It is best practice to comply with the taser and deem yourself caught..

Injury - Depending on the severity of your injury, your ability to move or stay on your feet will be affected. RP your injuries realistically. If you jump over a 20 foot wall, you'll probably break a leg. If you're run over by a car, it's going to hurt one way or another - even if it dazzles you briefly. Police are there to take you to a Police Station. If you are injured and require medical attention, the police will ensure you are treated. Whether this is on scene or via the hospital.

Foot Pursuits - You can run a reasonable distance on foot to escape from Police. Swimming should be discouraged at this stage due to lack of Marine Units. Remember, running a full sprint and climbing over fences is going to take a lot of energy and at some point, you will need to catch your breath - so RP this properly and dont run from Paleto bay to the city as it wouldn't happen. Especially when blips are off, use this as an advantage, hide in a bush, behind a wall or any nearby obstacle.

Vehicle Rules

  • Speed of your vehicle whilst fleeing should be considered - although police are permitted to do justified speeds, dont steal a vehicle and pursue at 150MPH. .
  • Any vehicles that have options for external or internal armour should NOT be used for pursuits or scenes without the approval from CIV Command prior.
  • You are permitted to take a vehicle off-road within realistic limitations of the car you are driving. In addition, keep it realistic, you are not going to go 90MPH on a dirt road, nor would you in an open field. Please note for the sake of fairness, driving in the underground sewer tunnels or on railroad tracks during a pursuit is considered off limits.
  • If you damage your vehicle and escape, take into account any injuries you would have sustained. You should never F1 fix your vehicle to continue with the scene.
  • The use of mounted weapons on vehicles is banned.

Firearm Rules

  • You must roleplay switching weapons and storing them if you are carrying weapons on your person.
  • You must roleplay ammunition and multiple weapons - do you have a backpack to carry them? Is your clothing appropriate to store weapons or hide weapons - you can't wear pants and pull out a pistol.
  • Automatic firearms (i.e. compact rifles) need approval from CIV Command.
  • All civ firearms scenes operate in a 1 in 5 policy (every 5 scenes you can do 1 firearms scene).
  • There must be at least 3 AFO officers online for a single civ shooting scene.

Injury Roleplay

All players, civilian and Police, are expected to roleplay their injuries realistically. In the interest of fairness and game balance, the following rules apply:

Gunshots - if you are shot, you probably aren't able to get back up and continue fighting, you will need medical assistance. If you leave it for a prolonged period, you will eventually collapse and become more difficult to treat! Make sure to roleplay all your injuries as at the end of the day, it’s an extra point for you and extra role play for players.


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 they hear you, do they feel any pain if they can’t hear you, can they feel your touch?

Call for help!


CABC is a checklist that you should do every time you arrive on the scene or if you are beginning your medical. CABC is in Order of priority.

C - Critical -

Is there anything critical? ie. Large Velocity Wound, major burn wounds, fires etc.

A - Airways -

Are Airways clear? Do they have a lower SPO2% reading than normal?

Consider using oxygen masks to help increase SPO2%.

Is the patient in an unbreathable atmosphere?

Are they part of the aftermath of a building fire?

B - Breathing -

Are they breathing?

Do they have a Heart Rate?

Consider using medical drugs such as Adrenaline or Amiodarone.

Consider the ALS model to resuscitate a patient.

C - Circulation -

Do they have a pulse or BP?

If not, start CPR right away.

Keep at compressions until LAS are on scene.

Consider DEFIB usage after 3 rounds of compressions.

Call for LAS right away.

Banned Role-play

The following items are banned roleplay in any context:

  • The act of explicit roleplay (i.e. sexual RP) is not permitted on the server at any time.
  • Although we do have EOD available, scenes involving terror threats and explosives should not occur unless they have been authorised prior by CIV Command.
  • The use of the “N” word or other racist or derogatory phrases including gender, homophobia, transgender etc is not allowed by anyone regardless of real-life sex/colour/race/sexual orientation.

Other Rules and Regulations

  1. Stay in character, roleplay things as if they would happen in real life. If you crash while on a scene you may reconnect and return to the scene.
  2. You may not under any circumstance use F10, Noclip, teleport to evade or escape. You may not spectate other people’s scenes while invisible to gain an unfair advantage.
  3. No RP characters should be under the age of 18.
  4. Do not police the police. If you think you were treated unfairly, make a ticket on the discord server directed at the relevant command teams.
  5. No bullying will be tolerated within the Police MP community.
  6. Be respectful out of RP. Within RP swearing and cursing is permitted to a certain extent - just don't be offensive.
  7. Respect everyone
  8. Be as realistic as possible whilst creating immersive scenes.
