Chief Dies In Fire

Part One - Introduction

Dear Employees,

As we head into spring break we want to wish all of the visitors to the County safe wishes and hope they enjoy their break here. Secondly, for those Troopers breaking elsewhere we hope that your travels are safe and that yourself and your family have an enjoyable vacation. For those of us who unfortunately are stuck working, we continue to strive and perform to the best of our duties throughout this period.

It has been a quite couple of months in regards to call activity and crime rates within Palomino seem to be quietening, which is something we have all been hoping for.

We'd like to take this opportunity to apologise for the break in the Newsletter, with no newsletter being written for the month of February, as the usual writing team had a busy time towards the closing of the month, and we'd like to thank Captain Vincent Kemp for organising the bulk promotions.

Engagement with the public is also on the rise upon request of previous newsletters, and civilian surveys and opinions of the Department are certainly improving. Special note to our Public Affairs team for that, who have been arranging multiple events and public announcements on behalf of the State Police.

Finally, I'd like to take not of the decrease of traffic violations which is thanks to nothing but the continuous work of our fine Troopers patrolling the Highway, and for that we thank you.

Enjoy reading,
High Command.

Part Two - Command in Training

It was been another month where we have welcomed a Sergeant into the Command in Training scheme. Usually with three or four people going through the scheme, this time was rather special for Danny Remington. The High Command Team deemed him so appropriate for a Command position, he was invited to be part of this scheme, which has never happened before. The scheme has been a huge success so far, and the interview stage went fantastic for Danny and we were able to make him a Lieutenant CiT at the conclusion of it.

It is at this point that we would like to say that Danny's training is over, and we have decided that he is suitable for a full time position as Lieutenant, and he will be given this position on a permanent basis. We'd like to thank Danny for his efforts in the Department, especially in the field of Criminal Intelligence and Field Training.

The High Command team would like to congratulate Danny for all of his efforts throughout the scheme, and congratulate him on his promotion.

Well done.

Part Three - Trooper of the Month

Certain excellency awards are easy to come by over length of service, as there will always be tough situations for our Troopers to be part of, which granted, also deserves recognition. Service awards are also easy to come by, however there is one particular award which is the most difficult to come by, and takes recognition of your Troop Supervisor to obtain this particular award.

As this is now going to be implemented monthly, I am going to take this moment to explain how it will work from now on. Your Troop Supervisor must nominate one person from his Troop at the end of the month, then, the Command Team have a nomination each, and it will go to a Command Team vote. The person who wins this vote will be given the Trooper of the Month award. This enables this Trooper to have a take home cruiser until the end of the month, and also will be given a cash bonus of 100,000$.

So, to the Trooper of the month for March. It is very rare that you find a Trooper of this calibre, and this Trooper certainly fits the bill. A role model to his peers, and potential supervisor in the future, the award goes to Zachary Rogers.

Rogers was also recently awarded with the highly prestigious Chiefs Award, which came with a 125,000$ lump sum ON TOP of his award for Trooper of the Month. Zachary Rogers is currently the only Trooper of the San Andreas State Police to ever be awarded the Chiefs Award, making this a very momentous occasion.

We would like to pass on our congratulations, and hope you enjoy the benefits of this spectacular feet.

Part Four - Sergeant in Training

Sergeants are arguably the most important ranking bracket when it comes to Patrol Operations. They are responsible for the day-to-day supervision of Troopers in the field, and are personally responsible for NCO bulk promotions. It is up to them, and their reviews of NCOs which determines whether or not a Trooper will be promoted.

It is for these reasons that, at all times, we want the best performing Sergeants Team possible, hence why the current Sergeant in Training scheme is implemented. We'd like to congratulate everyone who has been taking part in the course over the past month.

There is currently three people taking part in the 4 week long course, which is due to conclude on the 14th of April. We'd like to congratulate all three of them for completing their course, and becoming full Sergeants.

Part Five - Sergeant Promotions

As mentioned above, the Sergeants bracket is the most important, and those who excel within said bracket deserve nothing but praise for their efforts. It is difficult to move into a Commissioned Officer bracket, never mind progress within it. So those mentioned within the article are indeed special. They are that one step closer to moving into the Command Bracket of the Department, and becoming a really important pillar of the day-to-day running of the San Andreas State Police.

These are people as to which both junior and senior NCOs should look up to, and strive to be like within the Department. These Troopers are certainly what we would refer to as model troopers.

Well done on a much deserved promotion, and all the best.

Hughes Design is a house designing company that has initially started as an idea, a concept, and is now starting to become more and more known on the market, having projects after projects coming from all over San Andreas. Evan Hughes, the founder of this company, started as a junior designer for a company named Kappa Constructions and shortly after he has been handled his first real project, he lost his job due to the company being closed. However, this hasn't stopped the young welsh from following his dream. After getting a loan and using some of the money he had earned so far, he bought a small office in Dillimore and started advertising the company wherever and however he could.

This company is aiming to bring a touch of style in everyone's house and make it stand out from the rest. Wherever someone sees an empty house, we see an opportunity to show what we are capable of and make the owner capable of calling it home. With unique ideas and creative designers, it's safe to say that it is aiming to be the number one designing company in the entire San Andreas.

Given that the faction consists already of three designers, our next recruitment will be based on mappers, since we would like to spread the design concept on all fronts, that includes not only houses, but businesses too. If you think you have what it takes and fit the criteria, you're welcome to apply.

 



m9Radio started in 2014 and has been around for two years now with various ups and downs, but what truly is Red County's ONLY radio station about?

It all began with Montell", says Chief Executive Officer Sean Murphy. "He wanted to play music for parties, and stuff like that, so we said hey why not. We [m9Networks] will get into the DJ business". It is truly remarkable how far they have come in these past few years. From DJ's to Radio hosts, it is not an easy switch but they have made it.

The radio station has even been sponsored by William Silver and Charles Smith. Not to mention that one of the original DJ's was Daniel Evans. "[Evans] was probably the reason we took off. We had about 30 people dancing in a park in Montgomery, we never thought it would even be possible to get three."

Press Release #133

The San Andreas State Police would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the Saint Patrick's Day parade. We hosted a successful event on the 17th of this month, celebrating all things Irish with the parade. The parade was hosted by the State Police and included appearances from the San Andreas County Fire Department, Elite Trucking, and members of the public. As a successful event we hope to once again host more events like this.

Route Map:

 

We were able to secure the use of a traditional Irish bar in Blueberry, where we ended the parade. With thanks to the Rat's Pack and all the management for use of their establishment. We also would like to thank videographer Noah Walker for providing us with coverage of the event. The event lasted around two hours and covered the bulk of the county.

We at the public affairs unit hope that this will start a chain of events. We want to be able to host events like this on a more regular basis and attempt to provide a service back to the community that we have failed to meet in the past. If you would like to see the SASP host a event, please contact us using the details at the footer of this post.

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

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.

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.
