  1. Thank you for the input Matthew, I'm glad to hear the Command is currently working on solutions. I'm sorry if anyone feels this is confrotational. I am just trying to explain how I would go at it and get a clear idea of what people think some one the problem are so they can be fixed. I am not trying to start fights. Haha
  2. I also think that is a good way to help the training problem. However, scheduled trainings are also a solution. Overall, I think that we really need to work on the all around training more than just one aspect. So are you for some sort of academy that trains both cadets as well as FTO/FTA's? Because I don't think someone should be an FTO just because they reach a certain rank. That's not how it works in almost all departments in the U.S. I don't think that's how it should work here... Can I ask how and why you think this? I do believe that there are some problems that we will have to overcome, but that's what we will have to do. Overcome those obstacles.
  3. That's what I want to fix with starting an academy getting SGT's that actually want to train. Also, people are constantly leaving because we have SGT's that just ignore them because they don't want to train or, just train for 5 minutes and call it good. Which is where we get all of out bad officers that don't know anything from. First, my solution to the timezones would be having a Head FTO that if this were to happen would be me (or someone in the US) that is in charge of recruiting FTO for EST patrols, then we would have an Asst. Head that would be in GMT and in charge of hiring all GMT FTO's. Second, from my experience of being on at 2-5am which would be peak time for other countries, the server is almost always dead. Third, I really don't think that people would leave a server and not just come back in an hour or 2 if they knew that they would 100% get trained as opposed to sitting in a room call for a SGT for an hour. Finally, I don't think it would be hard to get a lot of FTO's because they know they only have to do 2-4 trainings instead of 20 in 1 day. All in all, I think it would be something neat to try out just for a few weeks or a month just to see what happens.
  4. I can explain a lot more with my voice obviously than I can on a forum. So, if any Low/High Command or anyone in general would like to hear more about my action plan, how I plan on dealing with different timezones, the possibility of opening a brand new department (I can't stress enough POSSIBILITY... Depending on what High Command/SMT says, I am not saying that I am opening a new department), and any other questions or problems that you have that I can answer feel free to PM me and I would love to talk with you personally.
  5. Sorry about that, I asked if I should, and they said it probably wouldn't even make a difference.
  6. Sorry for the long read, but please read all of it before voting. I don't know if this is necessarily the place to put this, but I would like to start a petition to put scheduled police trainings in effect for the Rockford PD... One of the biggest problems that I have with training right now is that cadets are either joining halfway through a training that is already going on, or one single cadet wants training and then they leave a few minutes into it wasting everyone's time. My idea for scheduled trainings would be a message put up on the wall where cadets spawn next to the discord information that PD will be doing trainings everyday at 1pm and 5pm EST (or something along the lines of that...) So that way when cadets spawn in they will see that they need to wait until the training time to be trained. I believe that this system will not only reduce the amount of trainings being done because single officers aren't being trained constantly throughout the day, but it will increase officers willingness to do a training rather than jumping off duty whenever a new cadet comes online. This would also open up the opportunity for an academy within the Rockford PD with FTO's and FTA's that actually have an interest in training rather than a Sergeant doing a 5 minute training because they want to get back to RP. I would be willing to have a conversation with PD High Command/SMT about the possibility of opening a Rockford PD Academy and would even be willing to run the department... Not because I am power hungry or just want to be in a high position but because I know that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. I also know that officers aren't really jumping at the chance to train new cadets. However, I actually have an interest in training the new wave of PD and I want them to be the best officers they can be. So we need only the best training them, not just some random SGT that only has to train because he is a certain rank. I would have no problem crating an SOP and/or helping command with creating the new training guide that was talked about in last nights PD meeting. I have already talked to a few supervisors and Low Command members within the PD (SGT June 1C92, SM SupremeChow 1A42, COL Alton, and CPT. Ruben 1L63 just to name a few) and they all agree that the Rockford PD could use more structure. Especially when it comes to training and incoming cadets... ~ Sergeant Major Adams 1A57
  7. That's good to hear. I'm glad that OFC's are actually getting trained rather that ignored...
  8. I had Gmod for about 5 years or so before I started to actually play it or RP. But I started Rp with SantosRp back when it was huge.
  9. As much as I love this, they're all still minges. Nothing has changed...
  10. My setup is just a desk with 2 monitors until I get back to college. Lol

    Adam's LOA

    Name: Adam's KGB7 Rank: SSA LOA Time: Monday July, 8th at the earliest. Reason (Private if needed): just moved and that's when I am getting internet again.
  12. Rank You are Applying For: Lieutenant In-Game Name: SM Adams SteamID: STEAM_1:1:96164252 Current Rank: Sergeant Major How long have you been in your current rank?: 2 months (9-10 Weeks) What timezone are you in?: MST How many Warns do you have?: 1 from 2016 Why should you be promoted (150 words Minimum): While there are numerous reasons I believe that I should be promoted, one of the main reasons I believe I deserve a promotion is because I have over 6 years of Police Rp experience in not only low, but high command positions as well. This is not only in Garry’s Mod, but also other games like Arma 3 and FiveM. I have held almost any position you can think of within a police department from Corporal to Chief as well as I have experience running subdivisions such as K9, TEU, Detective, and so on. Finally, as far as experience goes, I have 2+ years IRL experience in Law Enforcement Organization and Administration so I know what I am doing and feel I can be very beneficial to high command offering suggestions and input. Second, I believe that I deserve this promotion because I actually like to Rp when I am in the server. Most of my time spent on the server is patrolling, traffic stops, sitting and watching stop signs at major intersections, and responding to calls looking to resolve a situation peacefully rather than charging in with a game plan of trying to kill everyone. I am on duty often during the day, but also I am on a lot during the night (in the U.S.) when the server is less populated and there are only one or two officers on the server including myself. I think that it is very important to have a member at least of low command (like myself if I were to be accepted.) on just in case an issue arises that a non-command member cannot deal with. This has happened many times before late at night and nothing ever happens because by morning everyone has completely forgotten about the whole situation. Finally, I believe that I have definitely made a silent mark on the PD. I have spent a lot of time training new cadets, and shaping officers to show their true potential so they don’t end up like some officers I have run into in my time on Gaminglight. Narcissistic, rude, and flat out disrespectful to civilians, other officers, and even command members. I am trying to keep people playing of this server and staying with the PD. Not throw a fit and then leave the PD/server because someone pissed them off, or they weren't progressing as fast as they would like. Finally, I know that I may not be the most active as far as forums go, and I might not be the most popular person on the server with everyone knowing my name, But I promise that is changing. I am trying to have more face on the forums, I am trying to do ride-alongs in game with people so they can get to know me, but like I said, I am often either on late at night when a lot of people aren't on, or I keep to myself during the day doing traffic stops or dealing with civilian complaints. I am excited to see what people think of me as a possible Lt. and whether or not they believe I have the experience that makes me a good candidate as much as I do. I am also looking forward to stepping up and trying to help make a change within command to make the RPD the best it can possibly be. (Sorry for this being so long, but I hope you read it all, I spent a while on this and truly believe what I say. Thank you...) You agree that disobeying any rules set by High Command will result in an immediate demotion (Yes/No): Yes
