APD Overview

What is the APD?

The APD is a whitelisted faction that operates as a peacekeeping force that enforces the laws of Altis and seeks to assist the civilian population. The key responsibilities of being an APD Officer are to uphold and enforce the law.

Field Training Officer (FTO)

The Field Training Officer or “FTO” system is a way for deserving Corporals to be recognized for their accomplishments and determination to the APD, while being allowed to contribute to the APD on a broader scale than previously possible. These officers will be selected from Corporals applying for the position. While holding the position, they are expected to execute actions to fulfill their responsibilities including: training deputies, mentoring new APD members, and helping to prepare subordinates for tests by answering questions. Keep in mind an FTO can be relieved of his/her duties at any time, for any reason. Should this occur, the officer in question would normally return to the rank of Corporal.

Requirements

  • Must have 30 days time in grade
  • Made have a minimum of 333 hours, or 20000 minutes, of in-game time on cop
  • Must be an active Corporal who is listed on the Chain of Command
  • Must not have any disciplinary issues within the last 3 months
  • Must submit an application titled “FTO Application” into the APD application section of the forums

Nomination

  • Any corporal who meets the above requirements may apply for FTO
  • The Chief of Police will review each application after input is given by other Senior APD members where he will then accept or deny the application
  • If accepted, a verbal interview will be given by a Deputy Chief or higher to determine if the applicant would be a good fit for the role. This should be treated like a real-life interview.
  • After passing the interview, the new FTO will be given the tools necessary to start conducting APD trainings, and will be explained their new requirements.

Abilities/Rewards

  • Will be looked into as a viable leader in the APD, especially when seeking candidates for future senior positions.
  • A new method of proving yourself to Senior APD. FTO training statistics showcase how a FTO may handle future sAPD work.
  • A shiny star next to their name in TeamSpeak and a bold name on the Chain of Command.
  • Ability to issue cross server redeployments.
  • Access to sAPD-made training checklists.

FTO Usage Specifics

  • Senior APD use FTOs to train newly tested deputies, and/or officers that need to be retrained or had training postponed.
  • These training sessions should be proctored by the Seniors, to make sure that they are done with utmost efficiency and accuracy.
  • An action report must be submitted by the FTO involved in the training session. This then must be signed off by a Senior APD member on scene/who authorized the training so that can verify the session occurred.
  • After an unspecified number of training sessions, an FTO will be validated on his ability to train by a Lieutenant or higher on his next training session. This Senior APD member will then decide whether or not to sign off the given FTO.
  • Once an FTO is validated to conduct their own training sessions, the FTO will only need approval from the Senior APD Member Authorizing the training session.

Undercover Officers

Corporals may utilize the APD undercover system with a maximum of 3 APD undercover officers that can conduct operations at a time, and have access to civilian vehicles.

What is the Undercover System?

Corporals can go undercover on the Island of Altis. As undercover officers, they have the ability to disguise themselves as civilians to conduct covert operations and assist uniformed APD officers. Undercover officers must follow the APD Handbook and also have additional rules they have to follow. These rules can be found here.

Undercover APD Officers will have their name tags appear white, identical to a civilian's until they choose to reveal their identity. They may also disclose their undercover status by showing their badge to a civilian without their name tag changing in appearance. Any undercover APD officers must reveal their identity before initiating on any civilians.
