Allow me to introduce you to San Andreas Heat. We are trying to build a small community of law enforcement focused role players. We are focusing on using FivePD, which is an AI interaction system that includes callouts, an MDT, and other features. It is currently in development so is only going to get better. Our goal is to provide members with a law enforcement environment that gives a realistic feeling.
Our world will be set in the standard State of San Andreas with two differences from the norm. First, the island is not the state alone; in our lore the island is but one county within the great state of San Andreas. This brings me to the next difference; only one county. Blaine County is the island, no separation of Los Santos County and Blaine. All other locations will remain as is.
We feel this gives a more realistic feel to our setting.
We are looking for people that want to portray law enforcement officers in a realistic way. New players and veterans alike. We want people with maturity of character; they can have fun and cut up, but know when to lock it up and get down to business. We want people with an attention to details; doing things for role play purposes not just “cheating” the system because they have the ability to do so. We want people that are looking for professionalism; a community of like minded people that want to play a specific way. We are looking for players that want to be dedicated to playing; and playing “the law enforcement way”; not the right or wrong way but the law enforcement way.
Quality of players not quantity.
LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING
We are implementing a statewide law enforcement certification program. Every officer, deputy, or trooper on our server will have attended a basic law enforcement training program. This ensures that our members are certain that a responding law enforcement officer has been properly trained at the basic level. This program is being created and our intent is to keep this training as basic as possible as to be completed in roughly a couple of hours. This can be spread out over several days if needed.
Eventually we intend to have various “stages” of our San Andreas Law Enforcement Training Standards; Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Master level. Basic is what you get when you complete a basic academy, for now this is centralized. If we grow large enough each agency can run it’s own academy as long as it meets the basic standards. Intermediate is intended for more senior officers and would be achieved after continued training in specific law enforcement topics. Advanced level is geared more for supervisor level training. And Master for police administration.
We feel this best mirrors how real world law enforcement officers are trained and certified.
AGENCIES AND GROWTH
Currently we are planning to start with all three common agencies in place; San Andreas Highway Patrol, Blaine County Sheriff’s Office, and the Los Santos Police Department. Keeping with our lore; SAHP will start with a barracks commander (Lieutenant or Captain) and a couple of troopers. BCSO will have the Sheriff and two deputies. LSPD will have a watch commander (Sergeant or Lieutenant) and will be unlimited in patrol officers.
As our community grows more state and county positions will open up; and when they do, we will give first consideration to LSPD members.
We would also like to eventually have a Civilian Role Players faction. These would be members who like to role play in FiveM; specifically with law enforcement officers. We are not an econ based community nor do we have any plans to migrate to one eventually. We will use FivePD and a restricted vMenu. Our civilian role players will be trained and supervised. Their goal will be to provide more in depth civilian interaction then is currently possible with the AI.
We are running a complete fleet of Redneck Modifications vehicles using custom vehicle skins provided by the community. We use EUP for uniforms with the intention of eventually finding custom uniforms. We also use scripts that provide a more realistic feel to patrols and law enforcement duties, things like; Realistic Vehicle Failures, Legacy Fuel, Holster scripting, etc.
Our staff consists of former military and law enforcement officers. We bring our experience and training to the community, tailoring things to the game environment. However, we lean toward doing things professionally and properly versus the Hollywood way.
Other agencies or factions are possible, but they will all require growth of our membership.
