[Featured Factions] March 2016 - Week 3

Written by Giga

Chief Dies In Fire

Young, coke slinging, scheming kids with a hunger for the American dollar regardless of what it takes to obtain it. This is the very basis of the young mobster in the mafia today, their motivation is money rather than the desire for power and respect, and they’ll do anything to get the edge over the competition. On the fact this faction may appear to be a bunch of young guys running around doing this and that, but in reality this is a very complex organization despite its small time vibe. Led by Lawrence Panarese, The Panarese Crew is the newest organized crime sensation on Red County Roleplay with a very firm focus on providing only quality roleplay and an even higher quality portrayal of the mafia.

This faction provides the most realistic and accurate portrayal of the modern mafia, something that’s extremely evident in the structure, behaviour, and activities that can be found all over their thread and in game. There are no limits as to who can or cannot roleplay with The Panarese Crew, this means an African American or a Serbian could come and join this faction and have a spot within its ranks as long as they’re willing to work hard and put in the time and dedication necessary to be apart of something very special. All they ask is that if you’re going to roleplay an Italian you must use a proper Italian-American name, if your name isn’t considered a roleplay name you’ll be asked to name change or you will not be able to join, no exceptions.

The ruling panel of the Panarese Crew considered their standard of roleplay to be extremely high, therefore they’re very selective throughout the recruitment process. This isn’t the type of faction that you can roleplay with and join in the same week, this is a very complex process designed to give those who are interested in the roleplay the opportunity to become a member rather than an individual who’s seeking access to guns or a title. If you’re looking for the rank and not the roleplay, this isn’t the faction for you.

 

The Saint Brothers have been practicing their religion for a combined amount of 40 years. They originate from Vice City, Miami. Towards the beginning of March 2016, an unexpected arrival occurred and the Saint Brother's place of worship was destroyed and they decided to relocate. The place for this relocation, none other than Red County.

The Saint Brothers quickly found a property in the Eastern side of Dillimore, where they set up their new and improved place of worship. Very quickly, members of the community came together and started to support the brothers in their efforts and wanted to join in on the cause.

The Saint Brothers constantly welcomes new members, be it a brother who wishes to stay with us long term or someone who wishes to confess for only one term. All services are free in the eyes of the lord and are warmly welcomed by the brothers.

 

The Yasadas Rebels are a group of innocent appearing hunters, fishermen and business owners of the Bone County region. They seem friendly at first, selling their regulated meats/poultry and driving their vehicles all over BC. Through out the nights, and silent times of the day. These Pirates/Bandits set out to attack the hard workers of the Bone County society. Stealing fuels from tankers, heists on boats to steal merchandise, as well as taking property from businesses. The main reason they do this is to make income faster than their legal way of selling meats/hunting/running slow businesses.

As well as to get that sweet revenge feeling of how the "whites" have taken and destroyed what once was apart of the Native people of San Andreas. This group likes to associate itself in a both Native American/American way - praying to Gods and ancestors, giving blessings in campfire stories, etc.

Teamspeak Channel Wipe

Written by Giga

Chief Dies In Fire

Hello,

It has been decided by the management team that we will be having a channel wipe on the Teamspeak server (ts.redcountyrp.com:5000) on the 1st of April, 2016. We feel that the channel list is so cluttered with inactive channels to the point where it is hard to navigate to a channel.

Channels that had the "do not wipe" text on their channel name have also been wiped, resulting in 17 channels being deleted.

In order to retain your channel, please make sure that you will be utilizing your channel actively and do the following requirements:

  • Tag the channel with "[SAVE]" on the name.
  • Paste the following text on the first line of your channel description:
    Save Channel - [Channel Owner's Forum Name] - [DD/MM/YYYY]

    You must include the date when you edited the channel. This includes sub-channels!


Channels that belong to players who have not been on the server for a substantial amount of time (1.5-2 years+) will also be deleted. Players who have been permanently banned from the server for longer than six months will also have their channels deleted.

If the requirements are not met, your channel(s) will be deleted and you must make a refund request along with proof of donation to have it back. Anyone caught lying about losing their channel in order to receive a second channel, or if they really never had one, will result in a permanent ban from Red County Roleplay's services and the removal of the channels they own.

If you no longer have channel admin, look for any Teamspeak Administrator (Teamspeak Administrator) and send them one polite message to have your channel admin set. Alternatively, you can send Giga a forum PM along with the channel name and your client unique ID so he can grant them even if you are offline. You can obtain your client unique ID by pressing Ctrl + I. However, please take note that you still have to edit the channel yourself and fit them to the requirements.

Please make sure to do the requirements as soon as possible to avoid your channels from being wiped!

Thank you.

San Andreas News
Palomino shootout leaves 16 dead
February 24, 2015
 
Image
 
A simple traffic accident quickly escalated into a massive shootout as two groups of armed gunmen clashed and opened fire at each other. Multiple civilians were trapped in the middle of the conflict as state troopers urgently responded to the situation at the southern Palomino Creek bridge.

The situation started with a 911-call from a civilian, reporting two groups of masked men flashing firearms in the middle of Palomino Creek. This in turn alerted the San Andreas State Police who quickly dispatched multiple state troopers to the scene. The gunfight to follow involved roughly 16 people according to a paramedic on scene. The majority of gunmen as well as multiple civilians were pronounced dead on arrival of the San Andreas County Fire Department. The survivors are still being treated in intensive care at the San Fierro Medical Center.

The motive of the shootout is still unknown to the public, which has lead to many civilians becoming increasingly worried about their safety. The San Andreas State Police declined to comment on the situation.

Elite Trucking
Elite Trucking Newsletter - January - March 2016

Introduction

The past few months have been very busy for the company, mainly internally and the year of 2015 as a whole has been extremely hectic and unstable. We're quite possibly at an all time high for Management staff turnover, and the company just couldn't go through a month without losing a member of staff. This is something we've worked on, we finally have a stable Command + High Command who work together to ensure our company moves in the right direction. Our recruitment is still open as we're hoping to expand our numbers, so be sure to check it out and post an application.

Departments

At Elite Trucking we have two internal departments that you may or may not know of, these are the Commercial Delivery Department and the Maintenance Department. The CD are the ones who refill the gas stations, and all your local businesses quickly and efficiently and the MD are the ones who clear the roads when needed, fix your vehicles, change your tyres, anything mechanical. Recently our Commercial Delivery department have come under criticism for not filling businesses quick enough. We check our orders at least twice a day for deliveries and we always ensure that deliveries are met within 48 hours of payment. Business holders are able to request a delivery when their stock level drops below 50% which gives us plenty of time to order the stock that is needed and deliver it, however unfortunately some business owners are slacking, and are forgetting about their businesses and unfortunately we cannot deliver without an order. So this is a message to all business owners, keep an eye on your stock levels, it's not fair on the people of San Andreas who have to walk to another town for something that should be on their doorstep, if you can't keep the business stocked up, sell it!

Recruitment

It was recently discussed at the Management meeting that recruitment at Elite Trucking has always been minimal, and we've only ever had approximately 20 people within the company, to ensure that things don't get too crowded. However that is to change, we want to break company records so we have set ourselves a target of 40 staff members in the San Andreas Branch, which means recruitment is now our priority. We want to increase our numbers to ensure that gas stations never run out of fuel and business deliveries are there on the same day. With extremely good pay and excellent working conditions, Elite Trucking is the company for you! Click HERE for information.

New High Command

Ryan Radcliffe has been within the company for over three years now and has been an excellent asset to the team, he started as a Probationary all the way back in 2012 and has been with the company ever since. But unfortunately we don't all stay young and fit forever and we have to move on, so unfortunately Ryan has stepped down from his position as President and has handed the keys of the company over to Michael Novak and Michael Meyrick, President and Vice President. We've given Ryan the chance to say a personal goodbye to the staff and customers of the company.

Howdy guys and gals.

So we've had some tough times in Elite Trucking in the past year. We've had an crazy decline in employees and an awful lot of them left us mid year in 2015. But this hasn't stopped us going, it only made us more motivated to keep Elite Trucking running at an exceptional standard. Mid year I had to take some time away and left the company at an all new high I took the decision to take a LoA, which eventually turned into a resignation when I passed the company down to somebody else. Shortly after, the company nearly fell into ruin and I took the company back on in a horrible state, but, this didn't stop my motivation to get the company back to it's previous state.

So here we are, around 6 months later and the company is in a much better condition both financially and performance wise. This of course, marks my departure. I never really had any intention in staying in the company from the moment I took it back on. I was just determined to get it back up and running and assign a leader of whom I can both trust and rely on. You will know that a few months ago I assigned a new leader mainly on a trial basis to see if he could handle the pressure and to give him relevant training and assistance. Michael did a great job and it's time he takes on the position full time without me being behind him. I'm extremely excited to see what Michael will do with the company and the places he's going to take it. I'm sure he's going to do a tremendous job and I cannot think of anybody better to assign the position to hand the company over to.

Anyways, less of me blabbing on, I wish each and every one of you the very best of luck in the future. Hell, three years I've been with this company for, doesn't time fly? Especially when you're having fun. I never imagined to own a company like this, especially considering I only started out in the company as a rookie. I'll still be sticking around, but you won't see me as often as some things are going on in the background. Continue your great efforts of keeping the company running strong. You're all doing absolutely great and I couldn't have asked for a better team of motivated individuals to run a company I've spent my entire time in the county watching develop into something just extraordinary.


Ryan Radcliffe
Ryan Radcliffe
Ex-Elite Trucking President

Closing Statement

The past few months have been extremely unstable for the company but we appreciate the effort that all the staff have put in to getting us back on our feet, we appreciate the patience from the community in times where deliveries were delayed and most importantly we thank our customers for sticking by us in our hard time. I can proudly say that Elite Trucking is finally back on its feet and we are growing. We have introduced an Employee of the Month scheme and by the end of the second quarter we will have introduced a referral programme. This means more benefits for our employees which will hopefully lead to a better service to you. Also in the second quarter we will be introducing a 'Money back guarantee' which means if your business is not restocked within a certain time, your money will be refunded. All great things to come within the company, and I hope you're excited as I am. If you have any questions about this newsletter, please post a reply below of contact the team on 927.

Notification of Rule Alterations (March 13, 2016)

Written by Giga

Chief Dies In Fire

Hello,

The administration team has decided to make some alteration to a few server rules, which have been implemented with immediate effect as of March 13, 2016. Please be guided accordingly with the rule changes. You may review the full rule listing here.

 

General Rules and Regulations
 
6.
Spamming
Spam-robbing and spam-scamming is not allowed.
You are allowed to scam and rob players, although scamming / robbing should not be treated as a sidejob. (Participating in more than 3 robberies in less than 24 hours.) If you are short of cash, please use the sidejobs which are provided on the server, instead of repeating mentioned actions.

Spam robbing and spam scamming is defined as repeatedly and intentionally using the SAME method to conduct crime to gain cash. Robberies and scams are enticed to be fully roleplayed and thought out before their conduction. Players are limited to two major scams a week and one major robbery a day. Administrative permission may be given to continue past these limits with proof of pre-meditated RP. You may, however rob several people at once in a situation of needed crowd control without breaching this rule.

This rule applies differently to factions, and groups larger than 3 individuals who are not in a faction that lead a robbery. As a group you are all making the decision to rob, therefore this rule will apply to your group being an individual.

Example 1: Having 10 people from your faction rob 10 different places within a day is not allowed, as the 10 people are all part of the same faction. As a faction, you may only rob up to 3 times within 24 hours.
Example 2: Having 2 people from your faction rob two separate stores as a distraction, while 5 people from your faction rob a bank as the main focus counts as 3 individual robberies. After having done two distractions and one main focus, you may not rob for another 24 hours.
Example 3: Having members of your faction rob Montgomery Bank, then a few hours later proceed to rob Palomino Creek Bank is not allowed, as bank robberies are considered to be a major robbery. As stated above, you may only have one major robbery per day. You may still rob two smaller businesses such as pizza stacks, bars, and stores after having only done one major robbery.

 

15.
Killing after a Robbery/Scam (or attempted robbery/scam) is disallowed, unless the victim accepts the kill via /do.

It is deemed to be highly unrealistic to kill/inflict deadly injuries to a person you earlier (attempted to) rob, just to make them unable to contact the police later. Also, the order of mentioned actions does not matter - you are not allowed to rob a person you killed.

This does not count if the player is in the downed screen; only if they have been shot in the head/executed.

 
Robbing and Scamming Rules
 
Factions/Jobs

You may not rob someone that is ACTIVELY on duty for the following jobs and side jobs without admin permission:

Taxi Driver
Bus Driver
Sweeper
Trucker
Pizza Delivery
Coal Miner
Trash Collector

Admin permission is not continuous. Each situation is different and requires admin permission.

Additions, Reinstatements & Promotions

We're pleased to announce the following changes to the admin team during the month of February:

Additions:
 Emmerdale, Trial Admin
 Valero, Trial Admin
 Jeffy, Trial Admin

Reinstatements:
 Henderson, Admin

Promotions:
 Earl, Management

With that being said, I've taken the decision to step down from the Management team with immediate effect. I'll be remaining in the admin team, but as a Lead Administrator. Over the past few months, work has been getting busier and busier for me and I've had other priorities that I've had to dedicated my time to. It isn't fair for me to continue to hold a spot that I can no longer maintain actively. I'm glad that Earl was picked to take my spot and I'm sure that he'll succeed in the Management Team. Thank you to Tommy & Evans for being understanding and allowing me to take a step back to Lead Admin.

I'll continue maintaining the website and the User Control Panel as well as administrating in my free time.

Thank you for being understanding, and congratulations to those who are either joining or rejoining us in the admin team today.

| Part One - Introduction

Image


Dear Employees,

We'd like to start this Newsletter by wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! It has been a very busy month for the Department, from Academy 29 to the more recent shooting in Club Pulse. However with the busy month of December finally out the way, we'd like to thank all of you for your outstanding effort within your roles, both administratively and field-based, your effort this month hasn't gone unnoticed. We have tried extra hard this month to have an extra layer of engagement with the County, giving away some prizes to the public over the festive period, and it seems to have made a difference with the way the public looks at the department so the events this month have been a success.

However, we do have to look forward what is coming up in the coming months. The month of January again promises to be a busy one, and it requires the utmost professionalism from yourselves and us, the High Command Team. We need to work as a team, and make January, and 2016 as a year a successful one. We're going to be continuing with the Command in Training Scheme and making sure that they are continually being trained so that, by the end of their scheme they have all the traits and attributes that a successful Command Team member requires, providing stability for the Department as a whole.

This year promises to be a very long road, with the Command in Training scheme wrapping up within the first few weeks in January, and the Sergeant in Training scheme going to be coming in to full operation shortly.

Not only are we looking to stabilise the Department by looking at the middle of the supervisory chain, we are also looking to bring back rewards for NCOs. With Trooper of the month returning, and more incentives being thought up by the Command & High Command Team, now is the best time to be part of the San Andreas State Police.

Commander Mark Cambridge,
Director of Patrol Operations.



| Part Two - Emergency Services Unit

Image


This month also seen the addition of one of the most complex units within the San Andreas State Police. The Emergency Servies Unit has returned at the helm of Master Sergeant Vincent Kemp. Master Sergeant Kemp has proven in the past his ability to run this unit, and has proven so far that he is the right man for the job. He had this to say about the re-implementation of the unit;

Seasons greetings,

The Emergency Services Unit originated under the leadership of Dwayne Reeves around 2 or 3 years ago. As soon as I joined the department in 2013, I joined the Emergency Services Unit under Dwayne Reeves and served for essentially my entire time in the department since (that the division has existed). The Emergency Services Unit is now of course led by me, though the purpose and intention of the unit remains unchanged. We're a unit which primarily responds to tactical and dangerous scenes (i.e. a shots fired / code zero) as a medical resource and at times which the SACFD would be an inappropriate resource. We often assist the Special Weapons and Tactics division on breaching buildings by having an ESU member at the back of each breaching party to quickly intervene and issue life-saving treatment if necessary.

We currently have 6 full time ESU members including 2 ESU Command and 4 ESU members. We also have 2 trainees which are due to conduct their training after the Christmas period. These members are all trained in Basic Life Support, which is the delivery of simple yet extremely effective and necessary interventions during the 'golden hour'. We also have two members (ESU Command) who are Advanced Life Support trained, meaning that we're able to apply our advanced skills to patients which may be either more advanced (e.g. epileptics, diabetics) or more critical (e.g. trauma, falls from heights). The Emergency Services Unit is based in Fort Carson at the previous Sheriff's Office, this is where you'll probably find one of us if we're needed for a non-emergency discussion.

At present, I'm very satisfied with the work of the Emergency Services Unit. They're working extremely proficiently and I'm not at all concerned about the activity of our tight-knit team. With regards to the future, ESU Command are looking to implement a new skill level within the unit of Intermediate Life Support, which is a midway between the BLS and ALS groups. It'll be an opportunity for our BLS EMTs to advance to and we believe it will ease the process to a full ALS paramedic. The level will include the more 'basic' ALS skills, such as drug administration (IV Bolus and Infusion) and Laryngeal Mask Airway Intervention. We're also looking to work with the Air Support Unit to improve our utilisation and response of our aircraft, ABLE-1 and ABLE-2, for the appropriate situation (i.e. Able-1 responds to Search and Rescue OPs and complex medical operations, Able-2 responds to general medical situations).

Thank you for reading this brief section about the Emergency Services Unit. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the unit, don't hesitate to contact me.

Emergency Services Unit Commander



We'd like to thank Master Sergeant Kemp for his effort in re-implementing this unit, and returning it to full and efficient operation.



| Part Three - Recruitment & Training Unit

Image


We have re-introduced the Recruitment & Training Unit, thus combining the previous Recruitment Unit and Academic Training Unit. What this means is, communication between Recruitment and Training will be a lot more efficient as it will be within the one unit, with one Director overseeing it. It means that Troopers who may be assigned to recruitment who's job is complete after the interview will be extended over to the Academy, allowing familiar faces to conduct training which is not only an ease for the Academy Students, but allows the unit to be consistently active and not active solely during recruitment batches.

The recruitment system that is in operation at present will not change, however recruitment will be closed for the foreseeable future due to a lack of interest from the public in the previous batch for Academy 29. Of course, we do not want to just hire anyone so standards will still remain understandably high.

A brand new Probationary Trooper Examination has also been implemented for the training stage. The Exam was written and designed by Commander Mark Cambridge and Lieutenant CiT Nathan Drake. The exam is designed to test not only the knowledge of an Academy Student, but their situational and observational skills. The system we have also used for this exam is an extremely efficient one, allowing exams to be marked quickly and results be returned to Students in a quick fashion.

Academy 29 also seen the removal of the Probationary A and Probationary B system, however the team are looking to bring back a similar system for the coming batches. It was dropped due to the lack of numbers in Academy 29, deeming the system infeasible.

Probationary Troopers will still spend two weeks during the Field Training stage and after, will be reviewed by all parties involved with their training up to that point, along with Command and High Command to decide whether or not they should be confirmed as a full State Trooper.



| Part Four - Academy 29

Image


The Department has once again ran a successful academy, with Academy 29 coming to a close on Saturday the 19th of December. The Cadets and Training Instructors who were attending had a fantastic time, and it was an enjoyable day for all. Every Cadet who also attended has also passed their Probationary Trooper Examination and has moved on to the Field Training Stage. We'd like to congratulate the following for completing Academy 29 and passing their Examination;

Ken Bishop
Phil Harrison
Gordon Shaw
Richard Sullivan



We wish them all the best in their future career!



| Part Five - Special Investigations Division

Image


SID is one of our most stable and efficient divisions running at present. Their presence on the streets has led to the confiscation of over 1 million USD illegal contraband from the streets of San Andreas in the month of December. Their efforts may have, and will have saved the lives of many people on the streets of San Andreas and that is something we can all thank them for.

The division is one of the main field-based career paths that a trooper can take in the San Andreas State Police. It us currently being ran by Director and Lieutenant CiT Alejandro Fernando. His absence, due to vacation, has proven how efficient this division actually is, as it does not require it's Director to consistently pus the division. For this, we applaud them.

However, in the future we are going to be taking a heavy stance in gang enforcement and the SID are the first people we are going to ask to assist with that, and we know that in the future, they will take on that task with their utmost effort.



| Part Six - Special Weapons and Tactics

Image


It has been an outstanding month for the SWAT team. Their efforts in multiple situations throughout San Andreas have led to the safe arrests of multiple dangerous armed suspects. Not only this, they have used bomb disposal, and negotiation tactics to defuse other situations, really showing how diverse and multi-skilled this elite squad are. Their highlight of this month has to be the situation in Jefferson Motel with multiple armed males barricaded inside. Declan Betke lead the situation with professionalism and efficiency. His tactic of suppressing the shooters, until they decided to retreat was outstanding, and without him as element leader, may not have been as successful. Betke added to his outstanding tactic by at the end, rushing down the corridors of the motel towards the final exit, taking the suspects by surprise and ending the situation without any troopers being injured.

Special Weapons and Tactics is the second field-based career path that a trooper can take. It is currently being lead by SWAT Commander Michael Eastman.

| Part Nine - Command in Training

Image


The current candidates have been given a break over the holiday period, however will resume on the 2nd of January. Two weeks from that date will be the CiT final evaluation date. At this point not all of the current candidates will remain within their Command Team placement as the department cannot justify such a bulging Command Team for the Department size. We can not confirm at present how many positions will be available in the Command Team, however we can confirm that not all five candidates will remain.

We would like to re-assure the NCO and Sergeant bracket of the department that before this break, we were reviewing the candidates on a weekly basis to make sure they are suitable for their position, even as a candidate. If anyone has any complaints regarding any Lieutenant candidates, then please forward these to Commander Mark Cambridge of Chief of Police Connor Smith.

Final evaluation date: 16/1/16.



| Part Ten - Crime Report & Statistics

Image


Crime Report
The monthly crime review has shown that Palomino Creek remains to be the most dangerous town within Red County, and the most dangerous for us to operate in. Going forward we must ensure that all troopers take extra care while being operational in the area.

The report has also shown that the highest gun crime rate is also Palomino Creek, with a clear link being distinguished.

Our SID team have worked an intelligence report which tells us there is rising organisations in Montgommery and Blueberry and it is something that we as a Department will be looking to counter as soon as possible.

As the Department moves forward officers will come and go, I want to see you all face your daily challenges however with a smile on your face. Remember this is no easy going county however we sometimes make it harder for ourselves as we set a negative example towards the public. As we push forward and develop as a department, public engagement is something that we definitely need to begin working on. Relations with the public isn't just the Public Affairs team job; every Trooper in the department acts an ambassador. Every interaction with the public can change an opinion of the SASP and as we move forward and progress moving into a modern day law enforcement organisation, we need to improve our public image. With a developing department such as ours, times can be stressful which we as the High Command team understand. However, we ask the Troopers to address the public issues with the same professionalism that you address your tasks on a daily basis.

Closing words by,
Commissioner Daniel Evans.
