LAPD Squad (Police RP Clan)

Recommended Posts

This clan's main goal is role-playing officers of various real life police forces and law enforcement agencies from around the world. Currently we portray the following law enforcement agencies: Los Angeles Police Department (which is our main roleplay focus), Los Angeles County Sheriff Department, Boston Police Department, Chicago Police Department, New York Police Department, Austrian Federal Police (Bundespolizei), Belgian Federal Police (Police Fédérale / Federale Politie) as well as Belgian Customs Service (Douane Belge / Belgische Douane). Each agency uses distinct uniforms, equipment and vehicles - all customized to look like their real live counterparts. Note that, since we are an international clan with members from different countries, the main language used is English.

What do we do?
95% of the time our officers patrol the streets (just like their real life counterparts), looking for open world crime taking place (i.e. criminals robbing citizens, looting shops, stealing cars and fencing stolen items). If an officer comes across any crime in progress, he/she will try to activate an official mission against the suspect (which is something enforcers can do, if the circumstances allow it) and then try to arrest the criminal. If we are lucky, a long hot pursuit through the whole town will ensue, with the criminals trying their best to shake off the pursuing units. We had some really great car chases in the past, with some truly epic moments for both criminals and officers.

 

Our officers are asked to always carry at least one Less-Than-Lethal weapon, since arresting encountered criminals is our main priority (deadly force is only ever used as a last resort and should rarely happen). It should also be noted that our official clan vehicles do not have any vehicle mods installed. The reason for this is to make them fair to be used even against low level or new players. Similarly many of our members choose not to use any player mods, high level weapons or weapon mods - all in order to create a more level playing field. The result is of course that the game usually is very challenging, regardless of the level of encountered suspects, and our officers usually get hurt a lot (since they also try their best to make arrests regardless).

 

LAPD Squad in Action

Officer FirstCommander has made and posted several videos, showing the type of patrols and roleplay that we do in APB. Here are direct links to two examples he posted below: Video 1, Video 2. One can also watch all of the videos on his official LAPD Squad Channel on YouTube.

 

How to join?

To join us, you can do one of the following things:

 - post in this thread to let us know your intention to join and we get back to you
 - send a forum message to Officer Foxtail, Officer Deckard or Officer FirstCommander
 - contact us in-game

 

New members are issued an official clan uniform, as well as a clan police car, but only after having successfully completed a "try-out phase". During this try-out new members ride along with us on patrol and get to experience the type of police roleplay we do first hand. That way they can better decide whether they like it and want to stay (at the same time we get to see them in action and thus can gauge whether they are a good fit for this clan). When on duty and patrolling the streets together, clan members are expected to always wear their (issued) police uniforms and drive their (issued) police vehicles.

Important: When a player leaves the clan, for whatever reason, he/she is of course expected to return all issued assets.

 

Clan rules and regulations
 This list of mandatory rules and official clan regulations has to be followed at all times by our members:

   - have a trainee (new), green, bronze or silver threat level enforcer character (most of our members are bronze)
   - be at least 18+ years old and display a mature, respectful behaviour towards members and other players
   - have a basic understanding of the English language (as this is the main language we use to communicate with one another)
   - be friendly to all clan members as well as all other players and clans (even if you loose badly)

   - follow clan regulations and directions given by lead officers while playing grouped with members, especially in RP situations
   - absolutely no obnoxious or abusive  behaviour (aka griefing) of any kind towards members, other players or clans (violators will be reported)
   - absolutely no hacking or other game manipulation of any kind is tolerated (violators will be reported)
   - absolutely no discrimination or racism towards anybody on any grounds (violators will be reported)

   - absolutely no behaviour, tendencies, statements or display of symbols or texts that are in any way affiliated with national socialism (violators will be reported)
   - no selling or giving away of clan logos, clan vehicles or clan uniform pieces without explicit approval from our clan leadership and the item creator

   - abide by the TOS of APB at all times

 Failure to follow the above rules will result in an immediate dismissal of the offender and - depending on the type of offence committed - could also result in a report being filed.

 

Where can one get/buy your logos, emblems, uniforms and cars? (as this point has come up a lot)

Please note, that none of our assets are for sale, nor are any assets given out to non-members.

 

Additional information

Having a microphone is definitely NOT needed to play with us, since we prefer good old text messages (all voice messages are switched off on purpose).

 

The clan has been established back in 2014 by StevenDeckard. After a longer period of inactivity, the clan has been reactivated in December 2019.

@ Fenton: Thanks Fenton, much appreciated! Btw. are you a medieval reenactor (your profile photo suggests as much)? If that is the case that is awesome, we've participated in a few ourselves.

 

@ everyone: I should add that mature "enforcer" players are always welcomed to join us on our patrols (just send us a whisper in-game). We have had loads of fun riding with random players as well as keeping the peace with other clan members like for example Officer GinoSal from the "Metropolitan Police Service" clan (which we can highly recommend for anyone who is interested in this prestigious UK police force with accurately made vehicles and uniforms as well as great members).

I have done medieval re-enactment before. The profile pic was from a heavy metal vid' I did some years ago. You're more likely to see me in 14th to 16th Century stuff when I do living history camps now.

 

Also: Ah hah! I thought I'd done similar stuff to yours before.

@ Fenton - Awesome work, thanks for sharing those pictures! Could I trouble you to show off the NYPD Retro police car, that I have spotted in the list of one of your postings?

 

@ Ellen - Thank you very much!

@ Fenton - Very nice police cars and uniform, thank you for sharing! I also would love to see your Retro NYPD car. The NYPD livery seems to be quite prominent among cops in APB, since I have seen quite a few of those.

 

@ Ellen - Thanks!

@ Fenton - Thank you for sharing and well done on the classic NYPD cars (I kind of like the old look much better than the new ones to be honest).

 

@ Ellen - You are very welcome to join up! We will keep our eyes open for your character (should you spot one of our leading officers - StevenDeckard, MrFoxtail79 or FirstCommander - before we do see you, just send us a whisper, so we can invite you).

@ Ellen - Hope we did not overlook any in-game message yesterday (Fox was pretty busy most of the time with a new car in social and I only logged in pretty late myself).

@ Fenton / Ellen - Sorry if I have missed any messages while working on some updates and some brand new vehicles in social these past days (I often leave it open and am sometimes AFK as well).

The customs logo is from the Dutch customs and not the customs from Belgium 🙂

 

Merged.

Oh bummer, thanks for clearing that one up FirstCommander (good to see you here on the forums) - Foxtail will fix this error as soon as he can (sadly he also has the problem of being unable to edit his postings yet due to some strange restriction here on the forums - as soon as he is able to he will be editing the first posting accordingly).

Yeah I am hoping to reach that "magic" posting number that finally will grant me editing access soon, especially since there are some updates that I would like to make.

A new branch of service that is in the process of being added to the clan roster is the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department. Fox has already made a very smart looking female deputy uniform as well as fitting LASD vehicles!

We also had loads of fun the other day with Fenton and FreFa, spending at least 30 minutes just looking at each others police and EMS vehicles in Miri Kent's parking garage. Thank you for that guys!
