Legal Faction Rules:

As previously announced in the staff update, I have updated Legal Faction Rules with some new allowances. Some existing entries have been re-written for clarity, and I have now added M4 usage allowance for deputies and officers holding a "rifle certification."

The rifle certification program in both the Sheriff's Department and the Police Department will be offered to a small group of personnel in each faction, and will thoroughly train people and encourage role-play around the usage of the patrol rifle. The course will ensure that each member is fully aware of when they should and should not deploy an assault rifle, and the weight of the responsibility that has been given to them. This system will be trialled for a couple of months and tweaked as necessary as it was always the intention to roll back these very strict assault rifle rules when the right system could be deployed to ensure usage is still not abused or overdone. Patrol rifles are obviously a major component of an American Law Enforcement arsenal and with how dangerous San Andreas is: there needs to be sensible allowances. In short, this certification will allow them to deploy their assault rifle when they feel it is necessary. These "necessary" circumstances are moderated internally.

Rule 13 will now be listed as follows:

13. Legal Faction Rules
  • The following rules apply specifically to Legal Factions (e.g. LSPD & SASD):

    Tire Shooting
    Tire shooting is only to be used as an absolute last resort and is only permitted when:
    • The pursued suspect(s) are actively shooting at you or others from a vehicle.
    • The suspect(s) are immediately pursued after shooting at you or others at a scene.
    There will be no other exceptions or special conditions to tire-shooting.

    Beanbag Shotgun
    • Drive-bying with a bean bag is not allowed under any circumstances.
    • Players driving on motorcycles at high speed may not be bean-bagged.
    • If a suspect is brandishing a firearm (gun) in-hand, they may not be bean-bagged.
    • May not be used instead of a tazer to subdue a suspect during an unarmed foot pursuit.
    Tazers
    • Should not be used on players that are in the actual water.
    • If a suspect is brandishing a firearm (gun)in-hand, they may not be tazed.
    M4/Assault Rifle Usage
    M4/Assault Rifles may only be used by Legal Factions to/when:
    • Return fire in an active drive-by, regardless of the suspect's drive-by weaponry.
    • Match suspect(s) weaponry (MP5/AK47/M4/Rifle), only when confirmed to be seen or visible.
    • Damage non-compliant aircraft that is posing a threat to the public as a last resort.
      OR
    • The user of the assault rifle has the PD or SD Patrol Rifle Certification.
    These assault rifle restrictions cannot be manipulated or waived by any faction rank authority. If a faction wishes to further restrict the usage of M4s internally, that is permitted. Tactical team deployments (LSPD SWAT or SASD SED) are an exception to this rule, and may use M4s at their own discretion when deploying in the field.
    Punishments: Admin jail or a temporary ban depending on the severity of the rule breach.
