Police Ranks and Structure

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, which are allocated individually to each officer, who must tell you their collar number except from in a small amount of specific circumstances. Every officer (except those that are masked or plain clothed) are required to display their collar number at all times.

When new recruits initially join the Police Service, it is expected for them to have a lot of questions. However, due to the commonplace of officers receiving messages which they are either unable to respond to, or do not have the time to handle due to the responsibilities of their rank, a ‘command tier’ system was put in place.

Gold Command

Gold Command, also referred to as Police Command, consists of CC, DCC and ACC; thus they should only be messaged regarding issues that affect the Police as a whole, rather than constabulary matters.

Chief Constable (CC)

The CC’s are in charge of the Altis Police Service, they still enforce the law on the island but handle the day to day running of the Force and deal with any issues and implement changes to the Police. The current Chief Constables are:

Deputy Chief Constable (DCC)

The DCC’s are the CC’s right hand men/women, they enforce the law on the island and assist in decisions regarding police policy, incidents, and any changes to the Police Service.

The current Deputy Chief Constables are:

  • DCC Deathstroke
  • DCC LastNickLeft

Assistant Chief Constable (ACC)

ACC’s are DCC’s in training. These are those who possess the right traits and qualities we expect of a command member but still require a bit more guidance and training to be excellent members of Police Command.

The current Assistant Chief Constables are:

  • ACC Maverick Delta
  • ACC Snuffles

Silver Command

Silver Command, also referred to as Constabulary Command, consists of CSI and SI. Their primary focus is to ensure their respective constabulary runs smoothly, day to day. They should only be approached with problems regarding whitelisting, issues with members of their constabulary or for leaving the Police; however, silver command can only accept resignation from members if their own constabulary.

Chief Superintendent (CSI)

There are currently four Chief Superintendents, one in charge of each constabulary. Their job is to oversee the well being of their particular district and to deal with incidents on a range of matters.

Superintendent (SI)

Each constabulary is entitled to have up to three Superintendents. Every SI is tasked with assisting their CSI in matters within their department. They usually assist new officers and deal with people face to face on a day to day allowing the CSI to do more paperwork.

Bronze Command

The Bronze tier consists of SGT-CI. They can be messaged for any questions about the Police Service or their respective constabulary. If it is a more serious enquiry such as a complaint regarding a member of their constabulary, or perhaps a question regarding a Police rule, a CI should be approached.

Chief Inspector (CI)

Chief Inspectors are the first line of command within a constabulary. They are there to assist their fellow officers as well as oversee any disputes or any arguments in their constabulary or liaison. They also oversee any paperwork that is submitted before it is turned into a senior officer. The maximum amount of Chief Inspectors within a constabulary is 4, with the exception of Police Academy which can have 5.

Inspector (INS)

The people who hold this rank are encouraged to sort officers at ground level, to move them as needed and to assure each vehicle is being used at its full potential. There can be a total of 5 Inspectors in each constabulary.

Sergeant (SGT)

A Sergeant’s goal is to assist both new and old officers on patrol and to enforce the law, to be a liaison with each rank and to order officers in the field and, if required, fill in paperwork given by the Constabulary Command.

Junior Ranks and Trainees

Police Constable (PC)

Here is where most officers spend the majority of their time before being commissioned into a higher rank. They are expected to patrol without issue and to deal with situations fluidly without orders, know what to do in special circumstances and, if needed, assist the commanding of unit movement and placements. At this point officers become entirely responsible for their own decision making in relation to the National Decision Model (NDM).

Probationary Police Constable (Prob. PC / PPC)

This rank is obtained once the FA is successfully passed and is followed by a two week probationary period. This will give PPCs the opportunity to develop the necessary skills and experience required to become a fully-fledged Police Constable. They are expected to know the basics as well as any potential special skills to assist in everything the Police Service has to offer. The probationary period is the last stage of training for the Altis Police Service.

Police Community Support Officer (PCSO)

Training officers granted their badge as well as enhanced powers. These officers, having completed basic training (FTC), and are now assigned a caretaker officer at each shift start and must follow the commands of their seniors. These officers are kitted out with a basic weapons kit, with non lethal capability, but they must first complete their FTT before being able to patrol with a firearm.
