Criminal Investigations Department

In CID we work with all other divisions in PoliceMP. We are heavily requested daily to respond to various calls and attend to a variety of incidents, including but not limited to:

  • Investigate a deceased body
  • Witness statements
  • Police-Involved Shooting Investigations
  • Murder Investigations
  • Organised Gangland Activity
  • Robberies or burglaries
  • Assaults -GBH/ABH
  • Fraud and Financial Crimes

CID has the same rank structure as the uniformed branch. Officers are known as detective constables, detective sergeants, and so on. CID officers do not work normal shift patterns and they are often required to work long and irregular hours. A major inquiry can demand CID officers to work every hour of the day.

CID requires certain qualities and commitment and officers will need to show an aptitude for this kind of work. To aid selection, a constable can request a temporary attachment to a particular squad. If they show particular ability in this work, then their senior officer would put them forward for consideration by an interview board.

CID is a support division within PoliceMP, we help out primary divisions that require support on the server. CID has a growth mindset when it comes to events on PoliceMP, we find outcomes that can lead us to more outcomes for an investigation. CID includes paperwork due to the investigations that situation could bring out, the investigations could lead to money laundering to murder investigations, we hold a great team of detectives to figure out who was involved and how it came to where it is that present day. CID can be a little stressful when doing paperwork for an ongoing investigation but we work together to get the job done and correct information to close that investigation.

Major Investigations Team (MIT)

Our detectives work hard to conduct detailed investigations on CivRP Characters daily. Most of the suspects that go through our custody system decide to continue the Roleplay further, we then create case files where we gather all the evidence we can to prosecute that suspect. Case handlers would find themselves conducting interviews, gathering phone records, conducting property searches, requesting warrants, and much more. Casework tends to be one of the most enjoyable parts of CID and it has endless possibilities from small, short cases to larger mass investigations that last months. Our case files allow you to continue your investigations / roleplay out of the game.

Training Offered

Processing Criminals

Our detectives are also the ones who book and process suspects into custody. When processing any suspect into custody we must gather their details, establish a reason for arrest, and determine if we want to authorise or decline the suspect's detention (this is down to the Custody Officers discretion). We request a statement for the arresting officer that is later added to the suspect's case file as it may aid an investigation. All suspects are searched under S.54 of PACE and it is the responsibility of the Custody Officer to ensure that is conducted and findings are logged on our system. There are many more steps and tasks as a custody officer that you will do with us in CID.

Interviewing Criminals

During our casework, most cases require an interview with the suspect or witnesses to gain more information and evidence. This is also a great time to interrogate suspects on already found evidence. We create full interview scripts and packages (slideshows) that are screenshared to all present officers and the suspect during the interview, this way they can see on screen which exhibits we are referring to. We conduct interviews in our Interview discord room, which means we can even do them out of the game. This is a great example of CID being exciting in and out of the game itself. Interview training is a great skill to have and can take your investigation to the next level.

Forensic & Biohazard Investigations

CID Detectives have the opportunity to become trained in Forensic Investigation. You will gain access to a range of forensic services vehicles and a forensic suit. You learn how to analyze any crime scene and get all the evidence possible to aid an investigation. Forensics teams are often used on larger, more complex scenes to discover the truth behind the incident. All evidence can be taken back to the lab for testing and biometric gathering or stored in one of our many evidence lockers across London.
