Good evening guys, I guess this kind of came up when I had an epiphany over legal jobs. It got me thinking about various things, such as; letting organisations register to the PLPD as a security organisation which would grant them extra/exception from certain laws or register as a fugitive recovery organisation, both of these ideas need further ideas and concept made but they're certainly some things I'd love to work on in the future.

However, from those ideas I was thinking about conceal carry, I've always been heavily against laws which would allow conceal carrying as I did not see the point in it, it would just seem so chaotic. But I think it may be different now that we have the reformed Police Department.


I'm quite neutral in this, there is no aim for this to tackle crime or make Paralake somewhat safer, it just allows individuals that do want to roleplay legally (something which may be common when the legal jobs get worked on in the near future) can actually become accredited and allowed to carry a weapon and protect themselves and others whilst doing so.

Below in the next post will be the thread that will contain information on the CCW Permits if this gets implemented:

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
POLICE COMPUTER
UPDATE

Hello there, quite a while ago I made concept for a Police Computer, a couple of days ago made some nifty concept art and ran it past @Fredy. Over the past couple of days he's been working on it and it's pretty much done! below I'll put some information on how it will all work. Remember, things can be changed, if we don't agree on something, suggest it and it can be discussed!

The whole system may seem a bit basic, however this was made as a base, we can add to it and change it so again, if you have any suggestions, please post them!
  • When you first join, a record will create with your photo. Your photo will update every time you are jailed or fined. This means that you can possibly deceive the Police by changing clothes.
  • Press F3 from a squad car or a computer desk whilst sitting down inside the PD to access.
  • There is a remarks section on everyone's record, when you're jailed or fined, it will create a remark with the reason and amount. (At the moment you can not enter a reason for jailing)
  • Your whole profile will be wiped if you're shot and killed by a Law Enforcement Officer (this was up for debate, how exactly do you guys want it to be wiped?)
  • Warrants stay indefinitely, even on rejoining.
  • Certain ranks can view things that others can't, for example phone numbers and owned properties.
  • Senior Officers+ are able to add a manual remark on a profile.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
PUNISHMENT GUIDANCE

[​IMG] INFORMATION[​IMG]


Hey there the Paralake Penal Code has been updated. I remember back in EvoCity there were maximum jail times for the laws, however they got removed before V1 as it didn't seem fair to have a maximum sentence for some laws as every situation is different.

We've introduced a new law 3.9 Punishments which is below;

[​IMG]

As it mentions, below each law it states what maximum punishment the law breaker is liable to. Here is an example below;

[​IMG]

With the example above, it means the officer who is dealing with the situation can use their discretion, of course they don't have to give both max jail time and fine, or they can just do jail/ticket, it allows the punishment guidance to cover a wide amount of situations.

To add; A few more laws have been added such as Arson, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Failure to Stop, Failure to Identify to a LEO and discharging a firearm. The punishment guidelines and the new laws were written up fairly quickly, they should be OK but if there are any issues please don't hesitate to bring it up, keep in mind we may be editing the punishment guidance over this week!

Have a good night!

As announced by Jordan, the police ranks update was released today.
Changes include:
  • New ranks: Officer, Senior Officer, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Deputy Chief of Department, Chief of Department
    • Senior officers and higher can spawn the Dodge Charger 2012 and can search people without their consent
    • Corporal and higher have access to trunks
    • Sergeant and higher can get the m1911 and demote people
    • Lieutenant and higher can spawn the BMW
  • The new ranks earn 15% per rank more than a regular police officer (e.g. Sergeant gets 45% more, Lieutenant 60%, etc.)
  • All officers can now search people
  • Added the new laws
  • Removed Lieutenant and Sergeant teams as they are now just regular officers with a higher rank
  • Police cars now have trunks that can be accessed by ranks Corporal and higher
  • Police trunks have remingtons and buckshots in them that should only be taken out of the trunk and used if necessary. Additionally the trunks can be used to store equipment such as traffic cones.
  • There's now a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 police slots
At a later date we will add in new uniforms and more features for the different ranks.
I recommend reading through the new laws before playing as police officer.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
WHITELIST UPDATE

Hi there guys, It's just over a month since the last post was made regarding the status of the Police Department and the announcement of the Police Supervisor system being reinstated and revamped.(link can be found here: https://perpheads.com/threads/announcement-supervisor-system.14074/)

There has been a mutual agreement within the Police Department to hold back on the idea of a complete whitelist on the department, this was down to a few reasons. However, we thought about how we should expand the Police Supervisor system to maybe incorporate a lot more features, ones being of the whitelist as well.

The idea that has been constructed by the Chief of Departments is that we keep the Supervisor system, however we just change it a little bit; instead of applying to become a Police Supervisor you will be applying to become a Senior Officer within the Police Department (if you have knowledge of the PD you might know that Senior Officer is job you get set if you go normal police as a Supervisor, 1 chevron.) The application process will be a lot easier than Police Supervisor, this system will allow people that don't want to take part in the whitelist to remain as normal officers.

Once you've completed the application process to become a Senior Officer, you will then be granted the whitelist to become a Senior Officer in-game and you will join the Police at that rank. To reach any of the other ranks then you have to be promoted. To be promoted, you will be picked by the higher ranked Officers, these promotions will be permanent.

I think this system is possibly a solution, it allows everyone to be able to take part as an Officer and the players that want to have some sort of a whitelist can have one!

The Paralake Penal Code

Hello friends,

After about a week of writing, fiddling and tweaking we have now come up with a new version of the law; The Paralake Penal Code.

The new code, in my opinion, is a lot more understandable, a lot more clear and covers a wider range of offences- many of them new.

We would like to invite feedback from the community before implementing the code, so feel free to reply to this thread with any comments, queries or suggestions you may have.

Notable additions to the new laws include
  • Removal of different laws governing police use of force and the introduction of "reasonable and justifiable force"
  • The offence of causing alarm or distress
  • Clearer laws surrounding traffic offences and offensive weapons
  • The offence of posessing equipment for drug use and production
  • In certain situation it is now legal to kill another person

Those involved in writing the new penal code were:
Chrissy
@Fredy
@StephenPuffs

We are also incredibly thankful to the following people for their feedback and suggestions
@Jordan
@Chris
@Funny Little Seal Person
@The Strange Deranged Mage
@TheVin
@Rogue Car Tyres
@Scrabuz
@Bean Can
@LordTyla

You can view a read only version of the Paralake Penal Code here.

Hello there,
Recently I have spoken with @Riekelt and we have agreed to operate a wiki for the community and server. Everyone is welcome to contribute information and tutorials, and I am hoping that it will prove its self to be a reliable and worthwhile source of information.

[​IMG]

Those who actively use the wiki will be given elevated permissions on it. Please read the contributions policy before submitting any work.

At the time of writing, there is very little content available, however if people work towards populating it it should become beneficial to members both new and old.

Please contact me if there are any issues/questions.

Thanks
