We've had one of the longest serving High Command members in history leave us due to personal circumstances, as well as seen another High Command member resign at the same time. In normal circumstances it would be difficult to see two of the best workers go, however the infrastructure that this Department has in place dealt with it almost instantly and we managed to recover from the loss and get back to where the Department needs to be.

We've also had radio protocol changes in the last month, as we move to a more modern unit referencing system which makes things easier for Watch Sergeants and other supervisors alike. It will take some getting used to, but knowing how this Department takes changes it will work and it will help us proceed.

The amount of active Troopers patrolling on a daily basis has increased by a drastic amount and we seem to have resolved the lack of staff issue and I would like to thank everyone in the Department for that.

Legal and Illegal Faction Competition: Summer 2016

Written by Giga

Chief Dies In Fire

Dear Community,

As you are most likely aware, the player base has improved massively within the last months. It is an absolute pleasure to see the hard work of the whole team and community paying off and to see more people enjoy the server. Over the past few months, Tommy and the development team have been working non-stop, providing constant updates to keep improving the server, with the help of Giga's new tester team.

It was mentioned last year that the illegal roleplay on the server was at an all time low, with no one having any interest in creating new roleplay. The development team introduced the weapon crate system as well as a complete rework of the weed system, and the Faction Administration team concentrated on illegal factions, listening to what they needed and now the improvements are clear.

We now need to work on the legal side of things, the lowest peak we have had in the last month was 73 players and with only two legal factions, there is not much to do for a new player. Last year, we ran a competition for the best developed unofficial faction - it was judged on thread appearance, in-game roleplay, screenshots, member count, and originality. This seemed very popular with the community and we saw great factions as a result of this.

In the next three months we are looking to make two legal factions and also an additional illegal faction official. To help encourage you, those factions that get official will be rewarded with $500,000 to spend on anything for the faction.

Fancy getting involved? Here is what you need to do:

  1. Head to the Legal Factions area and check out the rules.
  2. Think of an idea for a faction, and make a cool looking template.
  3. Find some people you enjoy roleplaying with and set up a starting team. We recommend you do not open a faction on your own, it is hard work.
  4. Post your faction thread, we recommend you reserve the second post for media!

If you have any questions regarding the rules, application process, or anything about factions then please feel free to speak to us. We hope you enjoy the competition and we're looking forward to seeing the results!

Best wishes,
Faction Administration

Graduation Day

Spring has come, the flowers have bloomed and our probationaries are finally nearing the end of their field training period. It is time to walk those who succeeded through hardship, stress, and teamwork on to the red carpet to become full troopers. This upcoming Sunday, May 1st 2016 at 7 PM (GMT + 0) at the Blackfield College in Las Venturas. This was picked due to the easy setup and access for friends and family.. Several of the department's divisions including Recruitment, Academy, Field Training, and Public Affairs will be organizing this, allowing for maximum attendance from all staff members of the department as well as a high attendance from the members of the public. This event is organized by the High Command Team, Public Affairs and by the members of Training & Recruitment.

PRESS RELEASE #134 - INFORMATION CENTER

SASP Information Center


There comes a time when being too organized is just not enough. Our fellow High Command introduces to you a new, well-packed information center, including a fine repayment system, an easier weapon licensing system, explorer and ride-along program along with a desk for our recruitment days. These new programs will be run by San Andreas State Police Troopers as well as the Weapons Licensing and Public Affairs subdivisions.

Our new explorer program will help those 'underage (Below 21 years of age) to participate in a fun-packed police experience whilst with a state trooper. They will embark on the quest to visualize what it is to be a police trooper and how to survive on the streets whilst protecting the lives of many others. Also newly introduced is our fine repayment system, allowing all citizens of San Andreas to pay their fines in equal amounts on a weekly basis to decrease the tension on their daily lives, although, this is only available if you have fines totaling over $20,000. More information will be stated about the recruitment days famously known as open houses.

Our current probationary batch for Academy #33 is currently nearing the end with about 7 out of our 17 academy graduates completing their field training exams. Recruitment for the upcoming batch #34 will be opened on April 31st, 2016. We encourage all applicants to await the upcoming date to post their applications. Any eager applicants can always submit a ride-along application to experience the field-work state troopers endure on a daily basis.

The State Police is currently building a civilian program allowing civilians to partake in careers along with the state police, further information will be provided in the upcoming weeks. The Public Affairs Unit is also looking forward to renovating the Montgomery Police Precinct in the upcoming weeks allowing us to best serve the state whilst being in the most popular city.

After consultation with the National Association of Police Organizations, they made us aware that after independent review of the Department, that one of our biggest downfalls is our public systems available on our site. After much Research and Development it was made clear that the lack of an easy to navigate website and public friendly systems was being a massive downfall for the Department.

So after much Research and Development we have the new Information Centre as it is now. It is sleek, efficient and brings the best of the SASP to the public in five simple buttons. It is one of the most easy to use websites around at the minute, and it really does pinpoint where the Department is in regards to modern technology, and pulling the Department forward into 2016.

This is the start of many things that the Department is doing to modernise the San Andreas State Police. We want the best police force for the public, and changes like this is what makes the Department one of the best Law Enforcement Organisations in the United States.

We are also looking to adapt on our Pubic Engagement Initiative very soon, and really work on core foundations at our Department, ensuring it's stability for the long term future.

"To Protect with Courage, To Serve with Compassion."

Commander Mark Cambridge,
High Command Team.

We are looking forward to representing the department with the utmost profession possible. If you have any complaints, please direct them to Internal Affairs. We encourage the public to report any information regarding any crime witnessed, please step forward and either call the State Police hotline, or come in person to the nearest police precinct.

Phone: 911 (Office)
Write: Send your letters to Public Affairs Office, Dillimore Police Department, Dillimore, Red County.

Hello everyone,

After a recent update with our User Control Panel, we have made it much easier for you to obtain your donator TeamSpeak channel and also assign channel admins. In the past, users have had to contact a member of Management in order to obtain their TeamSpeak channel and have had to contact Administrators to assign Channel Admin status. With this new update, you will be able to do all of this by just a few clicks on the User Control Panel. After donating £30 or more, you are eligible to receive your very own TeamSpeak channel on our main server (ts.redcountyrp.com:5000). In order to generate your TeamSpeak channel, follow the instructions below...

  1. Select My Characters from the navigation menu.
  2. Click View on the character that you used to donate.
  3. Scroll down to the settings section and select View TeamSpeak Channels.
  4. Next simply click Create and then enter the name of your channel. Your channel is now created.
  5. In order to obtain Channel Admin status in your channel, simply copy the priviledge key on the TeamSpeak channel page.
  6. Join our main TeamSpeak server (ts.redcountyrp.com:5000)
  7. Click on Permissions and then Use Priviledge Key.
  8. Paste your priviledge key into the dialog and click OK.

After following the above instructions, you should now have Channel Admin status for your channel. You can then edit your channel description and so on by right-clicking your channel and selecting Edit Channel.

In order to grant other users Channel Admin status in your TeamSpeak channel, simply go back to the View TeamSpeak Channels page, click Generate New next to the used priviledge key, send this priviledge key to the desired user, and then ask them to follow steps 7-8.

If you happen to experience any problems with this new system or require further assistance in-regards to your TeamSpeak channel, then please create a new support ticket and we'll get to it as soon as possible.
