Faction Update — July 2022

1
Hey everyone, it's been a little while since we have done one of these and with the forum being down for the past week we haven't had chance to post one or progress with any of the internal tasks we currently have.

This update is only going to be a small one since we don't have much to share right now, but what we do have to share is exciting nonetheless.

Special Enforcement Bureau
We would like to thank Mikey for building and setting up SEB since we started our transition over to the RageMP Platform. Special Enforcement Bureau was doing regular training sessions and we've learned a lot (mainly the SAMP/GTA 5 tactical differences). Mikey has been a great teacher, since we started the transition over to RageMP Mikey has exhausted everything he can on SEB and found himself wanting a change in scenery. He has transferred over to LSPD and we wish him luck in his next tenure in Legal Faction roleplay.

With the departing of a leader, we start to look at everyone we have within their teams to become the new leader and we have selected Nature to be the next inline for SEB. Some people may question this decision, but it's something we haven't just decided out of thin air. Nature has prior knowledge in SEB and how to lead a tactical bureau due to his previous experience in LSPD. But we hope to see how he flourishes in his new position once the server opens.

Custody, Operation Safe Jails
Since the departure of the previous DOC leadership a while back we have been looking to revamp and reform the inmate desk and all the material surrounding it due to it still being relevant to SAMP's SADCR. This is something we started to action before the forum went down, but with it now being back online we can crack on and have it completed in time for the server's launch.

We will be also introducing Operation Safe Jails which will be run by Felis and SteelMan. Both will be a great asset to getting not only Operation Safe Jails up and running but assisting with the up-start of the custody/jail environment. More information on Operation Safe Jails will come in due time, right now we're setting up the foundations for it to flourish within that environment.

Trolling
Ever since the closure of the SA-MP server, it is apparent that a lot of people, including myself at times have been borderline trolling. While we have been accepting it and allowing it (even at points if it going too far), as we get closer to the server launch we will start reinforcing the rules we have in place for discord. This also includes your display names shown in discord. You will have to be in the format of Firstname Lastname (name) or F. Lastname (name). This is a stern warning for everyone.

Legal Faction Meeting
The Legal Faction Metting happened tonight and jacK was the only one to attend. While we would love to share some of the finer details of what happened in that meeting we'll be withholding it for the time being. The reason is I want it all to be completed and confirmed before we share any more information.

Once we have concrete confirmed information to provide to the wider faction we will be certain to share that at the earliest possible convenience.

Administration Services Division

This has been something we haven't spoken about since March, but we would like to touch upon the academy/recruitment drive we completed around 3-4 months ago now. As of now we currently have 50 candidates waiting for their In-Game interviews before we can continue with them along the recruitment journey.

We anticipate the majority of the interview candidates will pass and become Deputy Sheriff Trainees. At this point, they'll be with the wider faction where they'll learn and go through the field training process. We as a faction uphold very high standards when it comes to roleplay and portraying our IRL counterparts and we will not tolerate any trolling behaviour while taking our new trainees through FTP. If we encounter anyone with that kind of behaviour or attitude it'll be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

A further message from the ASD Office, the Sheriff's Information Bureau is currently low on numbers, albeit a lesser priority right now once the server is online we will push SIB roleplay for faction newsletters, social media, and whatever else we will be using, but we expect that after launch. It'll be nice to get some people wanting to join the Bureau if that's something that interests you send a letter of intent!

LSSD Formatter

As you all know by now jacK has been working on creating a Formatter from the ground up, this is to replace the old one we had circa 2020/2021 if any of you remember it. It is still currently in the development phase and will continue to be worked on after launch.

It'll become something more than just your typical "formatter" and will become a central hub for anything the faction needs. Current plans for the formatter right now are an In-House Clockify system, which is a time management tool used by various bureaus.

Message from the Sheriff

We come to the end of another faction update and once again, I appreciate everyone still showing continued support and willpower for this faction, considering the many delays and lack of motivation.

With another launch date on the horizon, I'm sure everyone feels we'll have another delay, but from personal experience, I don't think that will happen again as there isn't much left to be done to my knowledge. So this is something we can look forward to and start getting the ball rolling again for this great faction.

We still have some stuff to do from an in-game standpoint but this will be completed either before launch or shortly after, but again I'll keep you all updated with the progress. Since I took over this faction it has always been my goal to be as transparent as possible and I will continue to do that.

We currently have some faction to-do's, myself and Executive Staff will be working on these and try to disclose what we have to do sooner rather than later, but once we get to that stage we will obviously inform you.

Hopefully this will be my LAST faction update until the server comes out. As always, my DM's are always open if you have questions, concerns or anything else, I'll try my best to answer and if not, our Command and Executive Teams are always onhand to help where they can.

Regards
Executive Staff
