Frontline Policing

For operational purposes, the Altis Police Service is divided into four geographical divisions known within the service as "constabularies". These mainly represent the main population centres on Altis, (being Kavala, Agios and Athira). Police Academy as of end of 2020 is the only constabulary without a dedicated location.

The four existing divisions with their divisional identifiers and their divisional commander are as follows:

Identifier District Partnership Working Areas District Commander District HQ
KV Kavala "The Square Mile" (Kavala City Centre) CSI Leon Kennedy Kavala Police Station
AG Agios Towns and Cities to the West of Agios (including Agios) CSI TBA Agios Police Station
AT Athira Towns and Cities to the East of Agios (not including Agios) CSI OneShot Athira Police Station
AC Police Academy Responsible for training officers CSI Scream Affected by location of trainees

The service headquarters is located at Kavala Police Station in the Kavala Bay area.

Specialist Operations

  • Armed Response (AR) – Responsible for providing armed response and support across the whole of Altis, Armed Response travels in ARVs (Armed Response Vehicles) responding to calls involving firearms, weapons and gangs, which may put a other officers at significant risk. Armed Response is an amalgamation of officers with a higher level of firearms proficiency.
  • National Crime Agency (NCA) – Replacing the Narcotics Infringement Unit (NIU), It also assumed a number of responsibilities of other law enforcement agencies and it is Altis' lead agency against organised crime, involving drugs, firearms and gangs. Often in partnerships with constabularies and other specialist units.
  • National Police Air Service (NPAS) – Provides centralised air support to the Altis Police Service, based from Kavala Police Station and the National Police Air Service Headquarters located beside the Altis International Airport
  • Marine Policing Unit (MPU) – Responsible for policing the Altis coastline and surrounding waters. They utilise a specialised fleet of watercraft to perform maritime operations, based at Kavala Police Station and the Marine Policing Unit Headquarters located beside the Altis International Airport.
  • Specialist Protection Group (SPG) – Provides personal armed protection for the Royal family, Prime Minister (Mayor) and other ministers, ambassadors, visiting heads of state and other Very Important Persons (VIPs). The Specialist Protection Group is also responsible for providing armed officers that guard important locations such as Her Majesty's Treasury, 10 Kavala Street and the RBA Reserve. They are responsible for escorting all the aforementioned people and are occasionally involved in prisoner transport. They use vehicles to halt traffic, and use armed cars at the rear of the escort for armed assistance and traffic control. Once the escort has passed, the roads are immediately opened. All SPG officers are armed.
  • Road Traffic Unit (RTU) - Responsible for providing fast response across Altis Highways


The Altis Police Service uses the standard British Police ranks, indicated by shoulder boards (epaulettes), up to Chief Constable.

Following controversy over various Police Complaints where officers refused to identify themselves by name, and a statement by CC Tadworth in early 2016 that "the public has a right to be able to identify any uniformed officer whilst performing their duty", collar numbers were introduced. They are allocated individually to each officer, who must tell you their collar number except in a small amount of specific circumstances. Every officer (except those that are masked or plain clothed) is required to display their collar number at all times.

Junior Ranks and Trainees:

  • Police Community Support Officer (PCSO): The rank assigned to all newly recruited officers, displayed by a blue epaulette with "PCSO" written on it.
  • Probationary Police Constable (Prob. PC): "PPC" written on the epaulette with "Probationary Police Constable", name and collar number also displayed.
  • Police Constable (PC): "PC" Written on the epaulette with "Police Constable", name and collar number also displayed. Note that any officer above Police Constable has passed all their initial training as provided by the Police Academy and therefore at this point officers become entirely responsible for their own decision making in relation to the National Decision Model (NDM)

Bronze Command:

  • Sergeant (SGT): Three pointing-down chevrons above the divisional call sign and shoulder number, officers above this rank may have additional powers to authorise specific actions.
  • Inspector (INS): Two Order of the Bath stars, informally known as "pips".
  • Chief Inspector (CI): Three pips.

Silver Command:

  • Superintendent (SI): Single crown, this is the first Constabulary Command rank.
  • Chief Superintendent (CSI): Single crown over one pip.

Gold Command:

  • Assistant Chief Constable (ACC): Crossed tipstaves in a bayleaf wreath, this is the first Police Command rank.
  • Deputy Chief Constable (DCC): One pip over Assistant Chief Constable's badge.
  • Chief Constable (CC): Crown over Commander's badge.
