    Chain Of Command

    The chain of command is the order in which authority flows through the department, and how it is delegated to employees at each level in the department. Instructions flow down the chain of command, and accountability flows up. When you need help or have a request, you must follow the chain of command, contacting lower ranks (starting with one above yourself) before attempting to contact command members. Under normal circumstances, nobody below the rank of Sergeant should contact high command with a query, without being referred by a Sergeant or Lieutenant. Exceptions do apply, for instance, if you have an issue with a Lieutenant.

    The Chain of Command is as follows;
    Cadet -> Probationary Officer -> Officer -> Senior Officer -> Corporal -> Sergeant -> Lieutenant -> Captain -> Commander -> Assistant Commissioner -> Commissioner

    Force Matrix

    San Andreas law dictates that law enforcement entities must use reasonable force when attempting to apprehend a suspect. As a law enforcement officer, the key definition of reasonable force is as follows; "A person is generally justified in using force that is intended or likely to cause great bodily harm, or even death, if the person reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent the commission of a forcible felony." In laymans terms, you have to respond with reasonable force in accordance to the actions of a suspect. The following is a five stage force matrix which must be abided by at all times. There are separate rules dependant on whether a suspect is on foot or is using a vehicle.

    Force Matrix - On Foot

    Force Level 0 - No Force Permitted
    Suspect has not/is not committing any recognised misdemeanor or felony.
    Suspect is not causing danger to themselves, civilians, yourself or other officers.

    Force Level 1 - Physical Force Permitted (Baton/Mace/Tazer may be used with clear warning)
    Suspect has/is about to commit a misdemeanor or felony, and you are trying to restrain/apprehend them.
    To catch a fleeing suspect that has caused no harm and poses no threat to themselves, civilians, yourself or other officers.
    To break up a fight that is not causing any physical harm.
    To catch a fleeing suspect that is attempting to escape in the water. Officers should never shoot a suspect in the water.

    Force Level 2 - Usage of Equipment Permitted (Baton/Mace/Tazer)
    Suspect has committed a misdemeanor or felony, and is actively resisting arrest.
    To break up a fight that is causing physical harm.
    Suspect may have discharged a firearm, and is now fleeing, equipment is permitted to apprehend them.

    Force Level 3 - Armed Force Permitted (Unholstering a weapon, do not fire unless situation escalates to force level 4)
    Suspect has committed a felony involving the usage of a weapon.
    Suspect is brandishing a firearm.

    Force Level 4 - Lethal Force Permitted (Shoot to kill)
    Suspect has their firearm aimed at a civilian or law enforcement officer.
    Suspect is about to cause death to a civilian or law enforcement officer.
    Suspect is actively discharging a firearm in an unlawful manner.*

    *It is important to identify whether a person is using their firearm to protect their own safety (are the victim), or are using it to attack another civilian (are the suspect).

    Force Matrix - In a Vehicle (Pursuit Management)

    Force Level 0 - No Action Permitted
    Vehicle has not committed any traffic offence, and is not causing danger to other civilians.

    Force Level 1 - Traffic Stop Permitted
    Vehicle is/has committed a traffic offence or misdemeanor.

    Force Level 2 - Pursuit Permitted
    Vehicle has committed a traffic offence or misdemeanor and is failing to stop for police.

    Force Level 3 - (Active Pursuit) Attempts to stop a vehicle permitted (PIT maneuver)
    Vehicle has committed a felony and is failing to stop for police.*
    Vehicle has actively evaded police and the pursuit is beginning to cause danger to the public.*

    Force Level 4 - Attempts to disable a vehicle or vehicle's tyres permitted
    A person within the vehicle has active warrants for a serious felony/felonies.*
    Suspect has their firearm aimed out of the window at a civilian or law enforcement officer.
    Firearms are being discharged from the vehicle.

    *Shooting at a vehicle in populated areas is not permitted. Anybody found doing so will have disciplinary action taken against them. It is down to your own discretion on whether you believe it is safe to open fire, and whether you doing so could potentially cause harm to civilians. If available, Sergeant authorization is required to P.I.T or open fire upon a vehicle. If the Sergeant authorizes shots to be fired, without being involved in the pursuit, or having clear knowledge of the situation, disciplinary action will be taken against them.




    Part 4

    Standard Daily Procedure

    MPS Duty

    MPS duty involves towing cars, whether they are illegally parked or have more than $50,000 in tickets issued upon them. If a vehicle is illegally parked, but does not have in excess of $50,000 in tickets issued, it should be moved to a legal parking space, and the owner should be contacted. If it does have more than $50,000, it may be impounded at any of the department impound points. While on MPS duty, Officers are not restricted to a district, instead attending any scene where they are required.

    Patrolling

    Patrolling is the general duty that all Officers of the department will spend the majority of their time doing. During daily duties, Officers have the option of patrolling alone, or with a partner or Cadet. Taking a Cadet with you is preferred. During patrol, you duty is not to seek out criminal activity, but to protect law abiding citizens from those who actively refuse to follow the law. On routine patrol, you should look out for traffic offences, weapon offences as well as citizens in need of police assistance. On patrol, you are expected to respond to all 911 calls, unless they are deemed as a non-police related matter. In addition to general patrol, you may be requested or assigned by a supervisor to perform special operations, for example, speed traps.

    Traffic Stops
    When performing a traffic stop, it is important that both you and the occupants of the vehicle you have stopped are fully aware of the current situation, and the risks that come with it. When performing a traffic stop, you should not pull over a vehicle in a narrow stretch of road. You should only stop a vehicle somewhere you are confident there is enough room for both you and the vehicle you are stopping to move completely out of the road. After you have stopped a vehicle, ensure their engine is turned off, approach the vehicle and speak with the driver. You must give them the reason for the stop immediately, before asking for their license or registration. This is to ensure the suspect is fully aware of what is going on. Once this has been done, you can proceed with license checks, vehicle checks, tickets and arrests.

    Ticketing
    Tickets, or citations, should be issued for misdemeanor offences, usually traffic offences. Once a citation is issued to somebody, they must pay the fine on the spot. If they fail to pay the citation, they can be arrested for failing to pay the citation. If they are arrested, they can be charged with the original offence as well.

    Arresting
    Arresting a suspect is based upon probable cause that the suspect has committed an offence. When charging somebody, you must be sure beyond reasonable doubt that they have committed the crime you have charged them with. If the suspect requests a lawyer, you should inform them that they can contact their lawyer once initial processing has been completed.

    Note: Please remember, it is not required to read the Miranda Rights in the country of San Andreas. However, if the detainee request their Miranda Rights to be read, you must read them.

    Detaining
    Before detaining a suspect, you must give them the opportunity to comply. If they fail to do so, then you may drag and detain them in a vehicle.

    Situation Priority
    All situations require a differing amount of attention. Calming down a drunk citizen takes less attention than a shots fired situation. Therefore, situation priority must be enforced. The following is a brief summary of situation priorities.
    Level 1 - This is situations like drunk citizens. They don't require more than one or two units to attend.
    Level 2 - A level 2 situation would be somebody resisting arrest, they shouldn't require more than one or two units, however other units should be aware of the situation in case it escalates.
    Level 3 - This is an escalated situation the began as level 2. This is a pursuit or equivalent. All Officers on-duty must make sure that sufficient units are responding to the situation.
    Level 4 - Shots fired. All Officers drop any other situations and respond to the shots fired call.
    Level 5 - 11-99. Request assistance from other districts and departments.


    On and Off Duty
    Any Officer may go on patrol in their assigned district at any time they please. Permissions from a Lieutenant or higher is required to patrol in a different district. Officers below the rank of Sergeant that wish to spend some time off duty, must request permission from a Sergeant or higher. If their request is denied, the Officer must remain on duty without question.
    If an Officer is off duty and a reassignment is called, they must attend the reassignment. If a Sergeant or higher requests that an Officer returns to duty, they must do so without question.
    Sergeants or higher may go off duty at any time they please, however abuse of this privilege will result in disciplinary action.
    In line with San Andreas law, while off duty, all ranks are only permitted to carry a Desert Eagle, or any other legal weapons.


    Divisions

    The department currently has five divisions, and with the exception of Internal Affairs, during times of recruitment Officers can choose to apply to any of them.

    Patrol
    It is the primary objective of the LSPD to ensure that our designated coverage area is patrolled, and laws are enforced. In order to accomplish this the patrol division will be given the necessary personnel and resources in order to exceed the public's expectations. All new personnel are by default, assigned to the patrol division. Secondary objectives of patrol may include Marine Patrol, Air Support, and Traffic Control. All Officers are assigned to a district which is their main area of patrol. Any Officers in other divisions are ALSO in the Patrol division, and as such, the same district restrictions apply to Officers of other divisions. It is important to remember that joining a division does not exclude you from patrol districts.

    Special Weapons and Tactics
    The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit is responsible for the use of weapons and tactics which fall outside the spectrum of normal patrol units. The purpose for SWAT is to respond to situations such as high risk warrants, barricaded suspects, counter-terrorism operations and pursuits which require high speed intervention. The division is headed by one Lieutenant under the direction of the Assistant Commissioner, Special Operations. It should be noted that the purpose of SWAT is a “life-saving division” and to resolve situations as they arise through least required force, and where negotiation is an option, it should take precedence over that of forceful resolution.

    Detective's Bureau
    Tasked with the responsibility of marking and preventing crime in a different method, the Detective Bureau (DET) will perform a multitude of duties ranging from gathering information for casefiles to undercover sting operations. The division is headed by one Detective Lieutenant under the direction of the Assistant Commissioner, Special Operations. DET members report strictly through their command unit in order to ensure the integrity of investigations, intelligence and information is maintained. Detectives are assigned to the division as opposed to a specific district, and therefore are permitted to conduct operations and case-files in any district at the direction of the Detective Lieutenant.

    Internal Affairs
    The Internal Affairs Division is responsible for receiving, processing, supervising and controlling all interdepartmental investigation that involve allegations of criminal conduct and acts of misconduct against members of the LSPD. The division will be headed by one Lieutenant under the direction of the Assistant Commissioner, Administrative Services, however under specific circumstances a member can be tasked or overseen specifically by an Assistant Commissioner or Commissioner. The Internal Affairs is also responsible for evaluating all probationary officers.

    Field Training Operations
    The Field Training Operations (FTO) is the division that is solely responsible for the recruitment of members and the training newly accepted cadets. The division will be headed by one Lieutenant under the direction of the Assistant Commissioner, Administrative Services. With a stronger emphasis on training and recruitment, the division will set a regimented period for cadets to learn (but not limited to) policies, procedures, and communication. The FTO division will also be responsible for assessing all cadets, and it is the responsibility of the FTO supervisors to remove any cadets that do not fulfill the requirements of the Department.
