  1. Small wording change with the Prison Conspiring charge. Assisting in and initiating a prison break are not automatic straight to jail charges. Any suspect who initiates and/or participates in breaking people out of prison may be sent straight to jail at the officer's discretion. This includes anyone with the Prison Conspiring charge.
  2. Effective Immediately Vehicle Seizing Policy (Lieutenants) Lieutenants may no longer repair any illegal vehicle and drive to the closest headquarters for seizing. This policy may come back in another form in the future, but for now it is being removed. All officers must follow the proper vehicle seizure policy. An area must be deemed "all clear" by the highest ranking officer on scene before any vehicles can be impounded or seized. Vehicles may be seized in combat if at an HQ. You may search/seize contraband from a player or vehicle at any time or place, even if in combat. You may only seize a vehicle which has over $5,000 worth of contraband in it if the suspect is aggressive and/or evasive. If the suspect is compliant, does not shoot back, and cooperates fully with APD officers, you are not allowed to seize their vehicle. Seizing and impounding can occur before or after a ticket has been issued. If there are no nearby police vehicles to put a civilian's contraband in, officers are allowed to drive the civilian's vehicle to the nearest HQ, checkpoint, or garage. Officers may then pull out a police vehicle, seize the contraband, and then continue to impound/seize the civilian's vehicle as normal. This does not apply to illegal vehicles, which should never be driven by an officer. Cartels Cartel raids have been removed completely. Officers may only enter an uncontested cartel if tracking a warrant or in active visual pursuit. If a cartel is contested, officers may only enter if in active visual pursuit. Uncontested Cartel Officers may only enter an uncontested cartel under these circumstances: Active Visual Pursuit APB or Warrant Tracking Contested Cartel Officers may only enter a contested cartel under these circumstances: Active Visual Pursuit If an officer has a warrant or APB tracker near or in a cartel (contested or uncontested), the officer may get just close enough to update their warrant and must leave the area once the warrant is updated. If the warrant remains in the area, officers may set up a perimeter around the area within a minimum of a 1km radius of the cartel to wait for the suspect if they wish. Federal Reserve During an active Federal Reserve robbery, officers may not seize gold bars out of a vehicle unless there is a 1 minute all clear. If the vehicle with gold bars manages to escape the Federal Reserve and is stopped en route to a rebel outpost, officers must now wait for a 1 minute all clear to seize the contents out of the vehicle. Officers, under no circumstance, may enter a vehicle with gold bars in it to drive back to the nearest HQ for seizure. Illegal Areas (two life rule) When entering any illegal area, officers now have a two life rule. Officers may only patrol illegal areas once every 20 minutes if no suspicious activity is observed that requires their attention. Marked officers (non-undercover) are allowed to return to illegal areas before the 20 minute timer is up under the following circumstances: If a 911 text is sent within the illegal area. If a fugitive pings from inside of the illegal area. If a vehicle with a tracker enters the illegal area. If nearby traffic enters the illegal area. Active visual pursuit into the illegal area. If an officer needs to update a warrant or APB. If an officer dies within an illegal area, they may return one more time per engagement. If the officers are wiped in an illegal area, no officer should return back to the illegal area for 20 minutes, or until another form of probable cause is obtained to enter the area before the 20 minutes is up. Rebel Air Drops APD officers may not freely patrol rebel air drops. Officers may only enter a rebel air drop area under these circumstances: During Active Visual Pursuit APB or Warrant Tracking Temporary Policy There is currently bug where a suspect's individual charges may not be displayed in some circumstances. If a suspect's individual charges are not able to be displayed, officers are not required to read off individual charges to the suspect, but may use their current bounty price as their "current charges." For example, if a suspect's individual charges are not currently showing up, you may use any variation of this line to "read the suspect their charges." "You are currently wanted by the State of Altis for $75,000. Can you tell me what happened?"
  3. Effective Immediately Temporary Policy Update The temporary policy put into place regarding suspects being able to get back up after being downed has been rescinded. Bank robberies, Federal Reserve robberies, Prison Breaks, and Evidence Lockup robberies will follow normal lethal ammunition policies once again.
  4. I find this question to be a bit peculiar. Cops don’t actually need to remove their current gear to change it, so dropping their gear onto the floor to seize it is ineffective. This is, of course, unless they are intending to go on patrol without a substitute for their default loadout.
  5. Do rebels always need an “equivalent” to APD equipment? When will the APD receive an RPG equivalent? What about .50 cal off-road, or a LIM Jeep? How about speedbomb or suicide vest? Just playing devil’s advocate here to spark some conversation. Also I’m curious to know what the difference between the LIM and the SPAR-16S is, if anyone knows?
  6. While it would be beneficial to have more people who are able to hard restart the servers, it's definitely not necessary (or shouldn't be necessary). With server performance only getting better, it will only become less necessary to have that kind of access.
  7. Effective Immediately Therisa (Donor Town) Policy Removal The threat of the rebels has come to an end in Therisa. Civilians and their families have started to move back into their homes and populate the area again. Officers may now patrol the town of Therisa freely again. Officers are still not to be in the area for a prolonged period of time. Flashbang Grenades Flashbang grenades may no longer be used to intentionally destroy vehicles in any circumstance. Any officer caught attempting to do so will have disciplinary action taken against them.
  8. I probably couldn't have said this better myself. Emphasis on the: Maybe In the future it will return As well as: Big deal you have to change your tag. They're letters. It will be fine in the long run. Take a breather, relax, and live through it. Let's be clear as well, changes like this don't happen with an ease of mind. Nobody is thinking, "who cares about them?" (The above is my personal opinion and does not reflect the rest of the staff team - FYI).
  9. For the past couple of months, the rebels have slowly taken over Altis Island #3. Over time, the APD presence has been dwindling on this island due to the power the rebels have gained. The APD has responded by implementing an organized task force on Altis Island #3 to combat the rebels. Effective immediately, Altis Island #3 will have its own precinct of highly trained officers to combat crime and fight the war on drugs and alcohol. Drug lords, beware. Civilians, the rebels’ reign of terror is over. -The Asylum Police Department
  10. For the month of February, we've received no Lieutenant reports regarding this issue. If this is so rampant, where are the IA reports about it? We can't deal with an issue if it's not being reported.
  11. Nah. New owners though, you never know what could happen. I'm sure the development team is waaaaaaaay more focused on performance at the moment though.
  12. Just to be clear as well, please do not make posts attempting to call people out. Please take the correct avenues to report such incidents.

  13. Killing someone pays out a lot less money than bringing them to HQ and processing them, like a fraction of what they would normally make.
  14. Hey man, hit me up in TeamSpeak any time if you want to talk about it. Just shoot me a message.
  15. You can still do so. Actually, jail is only 45 minutes, parole lasted an hour. Plus in jail you can press plates to reduce bail price and potentially be released sooner.
  16. Hey there @Hanzo/Dirty Scrubz, when you have a few minutes, any of our lovely Support team will be able to walk you through how to send a private message to DarkKnight to voice your concern about his Captain term. They can be reached on Discord or TeamSpeak throughout the day.
  17. Please welcome our newest Captain of Asylum's Altis Police Department, @Codie Alterman Congratulations are in order. He will be learning the ropes over the next couple of weeks, so take it easy on him!
  18. I'm only going to comment on this, as it is the part you tagged me on. The APD in general is not trash. I wouldn't necessarily call it accurate to say that "all of them don't even respect civilian rights." Maybe you had a poor experience - but this does not reflect the whole APD. The APD certainly isn't without its flaws, but it certainly is not all "trash." If you have any suggestions to make it better than it currently is, throw up a suggestion in the APD Suggestions section of the forums. While we may not reply to all of them, we certainly read all of them. Word of caution, ranting like this won't get anything done. It's not constructive and doesn't help point out any specific issues.
  19. Now we need |BIONIC| for balance of power
  20. Effective Immediately Seizing Vehicles ($5,000+ contraband) You may only seize a vehicle which has over $5,000 worth of contraband in it if the suspect is aggressive and/or evasive. If the suspect is compliant, does not shoot back, and cooperates fully with APD officers, you are not allowed to seize their vehicle. Illegal vehicles will follow their usual policies. Parole We are implementing new rules for the parole process. If a suspect is evasive and/or aggressive, their bounty must be between $2,500 and $25,000 to qualify for parole. If a suspect turns themselves in outside of combat, they will be eligible for parole regardless of bounty size. Do not issue parole to any of your gang mates, associates, or friends. Do not issue parole to any individuals that are already on parole. Do not pardon then reissue tickets to place them on parole. You may be punished for it. Note: Parole is intended to be a reward for good role play. These are the rules of parole, they are not guidelines. Any officer found to be handing out parole outside of these rules may have disciplinary action taken against them. Blacklist Appeals For anyone who hasn't noticed so far, the APD has added a new Blacklist Appeals section in the police application section of the forums. For the time being, if you are interested in appealing your blacklist (or know anyone who is), please submit an appeal or direct the person to submit an appeal here. Effective January 1st, 2019 Corporal, Sergeant and Lieutenant Activity Requirements There will be a slight change with Sergeant and Lieutenant activity requirements. These requirements will be strictly enforced starting January 1st. The new requirements are as follows. Lieutenant • 8 interviews/exams • 12 total activities • 20 hours of in-game playtime Sergeant • 2 ride alongs • 8 total activities • 20 hours of in-game playtime Corporal There will be no play time requirements for Corporals. Corporal activities will be handled by their respective precincts.
