ANNOUNCEMENT:
[​IMG]

As stated in the introduction thread (see here: https://perpheads.com/threads/paralake-city-council-introduction.25926/) since the formation of the Police Department, I've been thoroughly interested in creating a governing body for the city that can operate independent from the Police Department. At the moment, the City Council will be responsible for legislative decisions and law reform for the City. Once the council has been formed, they will be discussing future ideas.

The Council will have 7 seats, the Chairman and Vice Chairman seat will be voted for inside the Council. Some people may be excluded from campaigning and running for a seat, this can be for one or more of these reasons; currently serving a ban or general bad player history and a High Rank in the PD involved with Policy making.

As soon as the Paralake City Council has been filled, their first task will be to create a Charter for Paralake, this will be similar to a constitution. The Charter will include the powers of the city and general rules for the council, this will set precedent for future Councillors.

PARALAKE CITY COUNCIL
INTRODUCTION

Since the formation of the modern Police Department, I have been thoroughly interested in creating some sort of governing body for the city that can operate independently from the Police Department. At the moment, the Police Department is in-charge of the laws, which I disagree with, I think it's important we have an independent body to make legislative decisions, the City Council will be responsible for the city law making and changes. Additionally, the Police Department will be answerable to the City Council which means matters of public interest will be challenged by the council.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE:[​IMG]
The City Council members will be elected by the community to ensure a fair independent body can be created. Find below the proposed organisational structure;

Chairman
Vice Chairman
Councillor
Councillor
Councillor
Councillor
Councillor

APPOINTMENT:
[​IMG]
Further regarding appointment of Councillors; community members can campaign for votes on the forum in an allocated section where they can have their own thread and choose content to put on to support them. The window for campaigning and voting will be 2 weeks*, once the poll is over all votes will be counted and the 7 community members will be affirmed into the City Council, then an internal vote in the council will decide the Chairman and Vice Chairman.

We want to make sure that we can allow all different community members to participate, the only prohibited members will be members that are serving a ban, discredited members of the community or High Ranking members of the Police Department who are involved in the department Policy Making.

Hey everyone! Some of you may know (most of you may not) that the Staff Team has been working on an official construction Handbook. The Handbook contains every base and specifically defines which defences are permitted and how many concrete barricades are allowed within each base.

Now obviously the handbook is already finished, however considering the recent concern regarding 'strictness' of the rules we wanted to see if you guys wanted it. Below I'll add a Poll, please vote honestly and if after the weekend users want it we'll go ahead and implement it.

Below I'll show an example of one of the pages, bare in mind with each base the amount of barricades and permitted defences tend to change.

Thanks Everyone!​

POLICE COMPLAINT CHANGES


Good afternoon guys, @TinySlayer, @Brinch and @Samuel have been working incredibly hard on moving the Police Complaints from the Forum & Google Drive and onto our PLPD Online platform, this is a brilliant transition and will really help the process of complaints and the case management.

Internal Affairs personnel area;

Previously, we have used the forums and Google Drive to handle complaints which is great, however it's extremely complex and is incredibly time consuming. Now, written complaints will go through www.plpd.online and you will need to sign in through Steam to create a complaint, this is so that you can interact with the assigned Internal Affairs investigator. Of course, if you don't want to sign in for whatever reason, you can approach a PD member and ask them to submit the complaint on your behalf, but keep in mind; this means that the investigator will not be able to contact you.

Once again, tremendous work from the Information Technology team! If you encounter any problems, please open a ticket on PLPD Online or contact @TinySlayer on the forums.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
POLICE WHITELIST

Can you believe its been over 2 years since the original idea of the Police Whitelist? In August 2014 we began working towards some sort of whitelist/rank system for the Police Department. I was tired of the Police Department being so 'throw away', everything you worked on just disappeared when you resigned from officer, I really wanted to change this and make things more permanent. I thought that the Police Department at the time had so much potential and so much could be made of it. In January 2015 we announced the Police Supervisor system which whitelisted the Lieutenant and the newly added Police Sergeant job, this was pretty much where the crusade for improving the Police Department started.

Since then, we've worked on the whitelist to where it is today, in April 2016, we added the Ranked Supervisor system which added the ranking system which required you to apply for Senior Officer. The past couple of years have been great and its been amazing seeing everything come together and the amount of individuals that have been so committed to making a change within the Police Department.

As I mentioned in the PLPD Christmas Post:

After a lot of spoiling in the shoutbox I am pleased to announce that the new overhauled phone app is now complete and you can check it out on the server.
The most notable gameplay change is that instead of being able to get anyone's phone number by adding them as a buddy, you now have to manually add each contact from the contacts tab.
The only exception to this is if you are mutual buddies with someone. In that case they appear in your contacts automatically.

Full list of changes:
  • Completely reworked phone app giving it an updated look
  • Phone app is now split into three tabs: Dialer, Call history, Contacts
  • Contacts are now seperate from your buddies
  • Adding someone as buddy no longer reveals their phone number
  • You can now give every contact a different avatar (Right click on contact to edit)
  • The call history shows you the 20 most recent calls you made
  • The messenger app uses the same avatars as the phone contacts now
  • Updated the call app

Some screenshots of the new features:

Hello everyone, as many of you are aware the server over the past few days has experienced malfunctions, errors, and crashes very frequently. We recently purchased a new server with the latest components available, however something appears to have not worked properly, it is unknown if this was a hardware or software fault.
We have moved back to our old server and for the moment it seems to be behaving properly and has stopped crashing.

Because of issues over the weekend and start of the week we are giving everyone that had active premium 1 additional week for free.
