Job Specific Rules
Ban lengths and times
All players must have a working mic.
No spamming or harassing other players in chat, phone messages or other means.
Do not break character. Only do so in an admin situation. Breaking character will result in warnings and bans.

Do not VDM
Do not steal emergency vehicles (Police Cars, Ambulances, Fire Engines and so on), unless it is linked to an RP event you have engaged in.
Do not meta game or power game.
FearPR is active on this server. You must fear your life in RP circumstances and when playing.
GTA Driving is not allowed. Drive to the speed limits in the city. Deliberate GTA Driving is a bannable offence.
Do not combat log. If your game crashes when you have died or been arrested, provide a crash report and continue the RP when you have returned in game. Failure to do so will result in a ban.
Terrorist Role Play is not allowed.
Walking around the city with Big guns on your back is Fail RP you dont see this in the UK, Keep them in your car!!!!
New Life Rule. If you are declared dead you cannot return to the situation you were involved in, nor can you partake in it for 15 minutes. You can return with another character but may not get involved. If the situation moves location and you accidentally get caught up in it you must make all efforts to leave
Using hacks/cheats will result in a permanent ban and is forbidden.
If you have a gun pointed at you, you are not allowed to run. (unless out of point blank range.) Knives you can run from.
If police have a taser pointed at you, you are not allowed to run. You must follow their rules.
Murder is a last resort. Only kill someone if it is absolutely neccessary.
It's hard for us to outline every phrase that is not acceptable, but as a rule of thumb: "If you think it's not a High Roleplay Standard it probably isn't". This rule applies to every situation within the server. The aim here should be for both parties to enjoy themselves, not just to win even though winning can be enjoyment you should always consider the opposing party and your characters.
Do not grief others - Griefing is the act of intentionally angering or irritating another player with malicious intent. Example: Consistently stalking a player to force RP.
Wanted Level - Criminals should be mindful of the attention from police their actions may generate. Give time between your crimes for things to cool down. You should expect to get more police attention, longer jail times/fines, and investigations if you repeatedly commit crimes in a small time frame. Unpaid fines will also result in longer sentences.
Valuing Other’s Lives - If a person values their own life, for instance, follows orders when at gunpoint, you may not kill them. If a person is non-cooperative then you do not have to value their life.
Perma-death is upon your request. You control the death of your character. If you choose to kill off your character, you cannot make a revenge character, this rule is set to prevent metagaming.
You cannot make your character randomly die in RP situations. IE doing /die when being cuffed.
Bank and Store Robbery Rules
Initiation starts as soon as the silent alarm goes off. You are expected to have a plan which includes how to escape from the premises. Expecting to "wait it out" is not a plan of escape.
All parties must be inside the bank or store to be considered part of the RP scenario. You can be outside as a lookout or get away driver but cannot initiate any sort of hostile action while outside.
Vehicles inside an interior while robbing a bank or store is NOT ALLOWED. It is classed as Fail RP
You cannot take a police negotiator hostage.
If you have a hostage, you must show the police proof of life
If you are robbing a bank or a store, you must use a stolen vehicle. You cannot use your own or own gang vehicle.
There is a 4 hour cooldown on bank robberies and 1 hour cool down on store robberies. This applies to solo or group robberies. Even if you did not activate the robbery but were still part of it, you cannot do another robbery until the next limit.
Police will conform with the handbook set out by the chief constable.
All police will be in Teamspeak for communications and must have a working mic.
You can kidnap police for their weapons, if there is a minimum of 2 online.
You must RP a kidnap of police. You cannot just roll up and start screaming at them to give you the weapon.
You are not allowed to loot dead police officers weapons.
There is a 4 hour cooldown on a persons kidnap for police. If you are in a gang, then this applies for the whole gang.
Do not cop bait.
Police Negotiators Cannot be held as a hostage.
Police cannot sell any police issued weapons, equipment or guns.
Police can pit manouvre a car to disable it. Ramming is allowed at low speed to disable a car. Exsessive speed collions are not allowed.
Police can use twitter and anon chat to gather evidence and arrest criminals on that basis. Anon chat cannot give exact evidence, therefore arrests cannot be made through anon unless a police set up is done.
Unrealistic Phone Use - Using a phone while in Police custody/Prison is considered failRP - this includes sending messages and tweeting.
You cannot take advantage of the cuff script when being dragged out of a vehicle. Wait to be put back in cuffs when you have been dragged out a vehicle.
Unrealistic Revival - When you are revived, you’re in medical custody until a member of NHS releases you. You may not simply run off once revived by a medic. Police will follow you to the hospital and can take firearms from you before you head to the hospital. Once you are revived, you may not jump up and instantly start shooting police again, you were downed and you lost the fight and it’s unrealistic to recover that quickly.
NHS Kidnap - NHS cannot be kidnapped. You can kill a medic with sufficient reasoning to do so: i.e they refuse to cooperate even when threatened.
NHS cannot carry weapons or harm people. You have sworn an oath to help not injure.
NHS can only take part in medical situations only. They cannot help police subdue a suspect, or help gangs in any way
NHS cannot make people change character. If you put someone in a coma, you cannot make them change into a different character for x amount of hours
Admin and Staff Rules
Respect players and admins. There is a line between banter and bullying/abuse.
Admins are not to abuse their powers. This means their powers can only be used in admin situations.
Listen to what admins have to say in a situation.
Any admin or staff will be removed if they are seen to use powers in role play, which is an unfair advantage over normal players.
Staff will not be staff in other servers. If this is found out, staff will be removed and blacklisted

Gangs must follow the correct initiation rules
When a gang member is killed, you must treat them as a new person, as they have a new character.
Minimum of 1 hour between gang initiations in public
Meta Gaming - Do not use your knowledge of who they are. You need to RP it out, ask who they are, not just because what he was wearing or you recognised their voice.
Gang Alliances - Gang alliances can be created but avoid creating strong alliances that don’t allow for conflict between gangs.
No string robbing players or stores - If you decide to rob a player or group of players in one location, you must wait at least 1 hour before robbing the same player. Going around and robbing every player you see does not benefit the roleplay on the server and if anything, diminishes it. Robbing a player should be well thought out and should be fairly uncommon. String robbing players will not be tolerated. Robbing in a very public location is unrealistic and ruins the experience on the server. Be smart and creative about who and where you rob.
Stealing repair kits will is now permitted. You will be fired and reported to the police.
You must be in uniform when on duty.
Follow the hierachy in the business.
If there are more than 2 on duty, then you will need to go as dispatch.

/ME Command - You must RP take your weapon out using /me of a bag or car unless it’s a small weapon. Police are allowed to sling a weapon but have to /me taking the weapon from the sling due to not being able to possess a bag.

- Deliberatly trying to get police attention(dangerous driving near police, beeping police).

- Using outside sources or in game sources to gain information such as player names, player IDs, TeamSpeak ID ect, that is not conducted through RP.
- This involves using either game or roleplay mechanics to alter a situation so it best suits your desires. You must be willing to roleplay a situation to its fullest and not ruin the experience of others.
- At all times you must value your life as if it was your last. If you're at a clear disadvantage, for example, a gun pointed to the back of your head whilst you're looking the other direction, you must comply with their demands. If you are outnumbered 3 to 1 you must comply.
