  2. Anyone know of some basic tutorials sources for new people to the arma3 rp community. Maybe a getting started in town tutorial. Basic stuff like key places on map. How and where to get gps and phones. What jobs are available and where to get them. Even basic key commands like how to ctrl your actions to bring up more actions. I myself am so know i surrendered and was stuck in surrender unable to move lol. I know most of this is basic knowledge but this being an open community for the time being. I imagine there will be people joining that have little knowledge of these things.

  5. ACCEPTED: If you have been accepted you will undergo a interview so we know if your are a good fit or not, This is a very simple interview. It gives us a rough idea of how you think, This will be the easiest Interview you probably undertake. For your interview you will need to know the following very well: SOPS - the questions will be based off of SOPS - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bKEoALvZsguL4f60V914XuYeYl4IqwUIYoImx4ZMkf4/edit?usp=sharing Common sense: questions will also be based off of common sense. ON HOLD If you have been put ON HOLD, it means you either have done something incorrectly or hiring status is closed, if it is incorrect you will have 24 hours to fix otherwise you will be denied, You may Reapply 48 hours after the DENIED comment has been posted. DENIED: If you have been DENIED it will be due to a major reason, we here in EMS dont believe you should have to write a whole book to become EMS but if your application shows a lack off effort it will be denied. other reasons it may be denied is because your could be blacklisted or you were discharged within the month. DISCHARGED: If you have been accepted and then discharged, this means your were dishonorably fired from EMS, When this happens you will be blacklisted from 30 days to permanently. To receive a DISCHARGE you have seriously screwed up, you either received 3 strikes or received a immediate dismissal due to breaking a major rule or SOP. BLACKLIST: Black listing is giving when we believe you are not in the right mindset for EMS, when your are DISCHARGED, you will recieve a 30 day blacklist from EMS to show you cannot Reapply for EMS until the month is over. Only CAPTAIN up can handout a blacklist and i must be discussed with either the D.COMMISSIONER and/or the COMMISSIONER before the blacklist will be approved.

  10. This is where your bond will be move when it goes to trial by the courts of Lakeside Valley
  11. Lakeside Valley Department of Justice Bond System Overview: The goal of the bond system is to allow those who feel they have been unjustly accused to be acquitted of their charges. The bond system is a tool which allows people to present their case in front of a judge. The system allows someone to pay a sum of money as a form of collateral to encourage them to return for their hearing. Rather than bail, where you cannot have your money returned to you, with bond you have a chance to have the money returned. Formula: Maximum Sentence x $5,000 = Bond Amount The maximum sentence is in minutes and the full amount must be paid by one party. Process in Practice: An officer places a suspect under arrest and transports them to an appropriate facility for processing The suspect is offered a plea deal, if they suspect feels that the charges are fair and just they can plead guilty and the person can be sentenced The suspect is offered a plea deal, if they feel the charges are unjust or unfair, they believe they are not guilty of charges or if there is a stalemate over reasonable doubt they can request bond Background checks must be done in order to ensure that the person is able to receive bond. This includes checking to see if they have any current active bonds, if they pose a flight risk (past bonds which they skipped on, leading to a bounty being opened), or any other circumstances which would lead the person to be unable to come to a hearing within four days Bond must be approved by an authorized official (any Department of Justice Member, Prosecutors from the District Attorney’s Office) and law enforcement officers (rank Deputy, Trooper, or other equivalent rank) and above Prior to issuing the bond the person who is being bonded out must be read the bond agreement below and agree to all of it’s terms. The suspect can either pay bond themselves or can contact someone that can pay the full amount for them The person who authorized the bond must take screenshots of the tickets being issued and the payments being made and attach them to the bond The arresting officer must post the bond form and attach all evidence which they possess in order to aid in determining the outcome of the case The arresting officer must add the charges to the suspect's criminal record in the database and include the bond amount Once the request is posted the District Attorney’s Office will have up to forty eight hours from the time it is posted to take receipt of the case, if the District Attorney’s Office does not take receipt then all charges will be acquitted and the bond will be returned If the District Attorney’s Office takes receipt of the bond a court date will be set and the suspect must appear before a Judge in the four day limit or the bond will be revoked and a bounty will be issued After the District Attorney’s Office takes receipt of the case the bond will be opened to discovery and any motions either side may have, in discovery all evidence which is planning on being used in the court hearing must be presented to give either party adequate time to review it. If evidence is not attached and is not brought up until the time of hearing it will not be allowed Once the hearing has taken place the court will come to a conclusion on the outcome of the case. If the suspect is found guilty or if they are acquitted of their charges the are still entitled to have their bond returned as they showed up to the hearing Bond can be returned by filling out a compensation request on the website and referencing the bond as your proof of loss Bond Agreement: When an individual decides to go out on bond they automatically agree to the terms listed below in order to ensure that all bonds are treated fairly. This agreement is still applicable even if the bond issuer did not read the agreement to the party requesting bond. The party being bonded must appear before a judge within four days of the bond being issued If the party being bonded is arrested again while out on bond the money is automatically forfeited and they will automatically be sentenced for the charges on the bond as well as the new charges they have acquired which can be appealed at a later date The party being bonded may turn themselves in at any point and plead guilty to the charges at any time during the four day period and they will still be entitled to have their bond returned If the bonded party fails to appear a bounty will be issued and the bond will be forfeited, the party who was bonded will not be eligible to go out on bond for two weeks after the bounty is issued Bond Violations: If a suspect is out on bond and they are arrested for another misdemeanor or felony, they are to go to jail for the new charges as well as the original charges that they were out on bond for. If they fail to appear before a judge within four days of the bond being issued the bond will be forfeited and a bounty will be issued. If the bonded individual fails to appear there will be a cooldown period of two weeks before they are able to go out on bond again as they are considered a flight risk. Bond Payments: A person may pay their own bond or have someone else pay the bond for them. The payment shall be made in the form of a ticket charged to the person who is paying the bond. Only the authorized officials and law enforcement officers may approve bonds as they will be designated as Magistrates. Once the payment has gone through and been processed the arresting party must update the criminal database with the amount of the bond. Bond is refundable once a person has completed their scheduled hearing. The bond money will be returned to whomever payed it through a compensation request on the website referencing their bond as proof of loss.Bond may also be refunded if the person who was bonded out pleads guilty to the charges within the four day period and is sentenced for the original charges. If the suspect does not come to their hearing they will automatically forfeit and it will be converted into a bounty. Once the bond is converted into an open bounty all qualified Bounty Hunters are authorized to execute warrants for fifty percent of the total bond amount paid. In order to become an authorized bounty hunter you must pass an exam and pay a fee to receive the Bounty Hunter License. Open Bounties: If a bounty hunter executes a warrant on an individual with an open bounty they must bring the person with the bounty to any police headquarters and turn them over to a law enforcement officer. The person must be alive and it is encouraged that you take a photo of the process of you handing the person with an open bounty to the police.
  12. A warrant is a document which gives a law enforcement agency authorization to perform an arrest, a search and seizure or any form of administration of justice. Due to a warrant being considered a legal document and the power associated within one can not simply refuse a warrant. Refusing to obey or interfering with the execution of a warrant is a crime in itself. There are two types of warrants which may be issued. The most common is an arrest warrant which is filed by a law enforcement officer or a State Prosecutor. An arrest warrant allows a law enforcement officer to take you into police custody and transport you to the appropriate facility in order to resolve the warrant. The person who the warrant is served on will have the option of pleading guilty to the charges, going out on bond, paying bail or going to trial (if the resources are available). In order for an arrest warrant to be approved it only needs to show that probable cause is present; it does not mean that a person is considered guilty. The second type of warrant which may be issued is a bench warrant. Bench warrants are issued directly from the "bench" from a Judge or Justice. These are only used in specific situations such as someone who has failed to appear for their bond and have entered a no contest plea or in situations where someone is held in contempt of court. When a bench warrant is served a person is to be sentenced immediately, a plea deal or bond is not to be offered. If a person feels that a bench warrant is unjust then an appeal can be filed after they have served their sentence. For a warrant to be executed it must be approved by a Judge or Justice within the Department of Justice. Once a warrant has been approved it lasts an indefinite amount of time unless otherwise specified when the warrant is in the approval process. When submitting a warrant request the template below shall be used: Thread Title: <Suspect's Name> - Arrest Warrant Name of Suspect: How did you ascertain their identity? (prior run-ins, checked license, etc.): Charges: Incident Report (from your point of view, be specific): Evidence: Witness Statements: Sufficient evidence must be provided in order to ensure that probable cause for an arrest is present. If the evidence provided is deemed insufficient then the arrest warrant will be denied and the alleged will be released free of charge. This format is only to be utilized for a citizen to be arrested and not for search warrants.
