May Newsletter

Postby Jake Anderson » June 3rd, 2018, 2:57 am


Opening Words

Dear All,

I hope this finds you all well and excited for another newsletter.
The previous month has been extremely tough and this has been noted by all of the Executive & Command Team. Also the amount of 911 calls being answered is on the rise, which over the last couple of months was a massive issue - It's in our best interest to continue in this manner as the Executive and Command team can see the public's trust is growing on a daily basis to which is great.

To conclude this short but sweet introduction and let you continue reading and look at the bulks (cause that's all we are interested in), I would personally like to apologise for my absence over the last month. Not many of you know what's going on but I will be out of the county for a while to rectify these issues that have come up for me.

I wish you all the best and let's keep pushing forward and let us keep getting better.

Assistant Sheriff Adam Hobbs


A personal message from Hobbs: show
This is OOC ((To follow to what I said in the introduction, I'm currently going through clinical depression to which is causing me to not do anything apart from go to bed I'm currently seeking help for this and I'm hoping to come back fighting fit once again within a few weeks, I love you all and I will be a on LOA for next few weeks.))

Desk of the Sheriff

The Desk of the Sheriff is gonna be a new part of the newsletter that I've decided to do. This part of the newsletter will always be something directly from me to the members of the San Andreas County Sheriff's Office. This part will contain the many different changes, as well as thoughts and opinions from myself. Without further ado, the first From the Desk of the Sheriff.


Earlier this month administration brought up the teamspeak changes, regarding talk power. I've kept an eye on things and these are a few things I noticed: Radio communication improved, 911 calls were responded to more often, calls that were finished were cleared, and quality of roleplay improved slightly. It's not all positive though, the changes upset many of you, leading to a drop in on duty deputies during peak hours, I also feel this dropped morale departmental wise, supervisory units, including command staff, would simply sit in their offices and RP from there so that they could talk to who they needed to talk to, I didn't punish for this as I felt that calling you gentlemen out in the newsletter would be better. Everything makes its way to me eventually.

So to find that very important balance between rules, and too many rules. I've decided to bring back talk power to the channels. With this reversion comes a few new rules. The channels are to now be treated as OOC channels. Whispers are the exception here. In this regards, no more "Hey man I'm over at stacks mind giving me a hand." we've all done it, to say you haven't means you're either a perfectionist or a liar. As stated above, these channels are now considered OOC, meaning if you do make an IC statement it will be treated as metagame. Supervisory and Command Staff are going to be tasked with randomly joining bulky channels from time to time to make sure no MG is going on. If Supervisory+ catches you metagaming, you will be reported to myself or Holmes where you will be dishonorably discharged and will be given a dateban from the server. I would perfer if other administrators in the SACSO stay out of these situations and leave it to Holmes or I to resolve.

I hope to see the improved quality of roleplay, responsiveness to calls, and active /r to continue, if these standards happen to drop again, we will return to the muted channels. This is not a threat it's a promise.

This month I have asked the Recruitment Unit to do something a little different. Instead of holding recruitment open for a certain amount of time, I've decided to hold recruitment open until we get a certain amount of people. This will prevent issues like the previous batch that consisted of a grand total of 4 deputies. Let that sink in for a second there was 4 deputies that went through that batch, that's not a good number for sustaining a decent number of members. Moving on recruitment will remain until this number is met, then soon after it will close. I look forward to this batch and the deputies it will bring to the department, I'm looking forward to working with them all.


I've kept the majority of the department in the dark on the new prison. I can faithfully announce that the Prison mapping is finished and we should see it implemented into the server very soon. The new prison will replace the SACSO Field Ops building. The county prison will be smaller than Greenpalms, which will be soon deconstructed and the land most likely sold. The new prison has many amenities, such as a Sally-Port, which is in short a garage you drive into, the door shuts behind you, and you can bring your suspect or prisoner inside the prison without going through a high traffic area such as the DSO garage, or an easily intercepted area like the side entrance of DSO. Warden Sobo has been informed about the very soon coming County Prison and has been preparing for it.


With the SACSO Field Ops building being replaced this will displace the Investigative Services Unit. Luckily, we have acquired the garages and accompanying buildings to the right of the Field-Ops building. If everything goes according to plan this building will be converted into a new facility for SACSO, this building will house several units, mainly being Investigative Services, SWAT, and the Warrant Execution Team. Not only will the facility house the offices for the different units, this building will also house the garage for the fleets of all the units housed in the building. More information regarding this building will follow in the coming weeks.

Closing Words

Thank you for reading this months newsletter, there has been plenty of positive achievements both within units and by employees who've received promotions as a result so I pass my congratulations on to you. I'd like to thank you all for your patience this month, we've had a few challenges with the implementation of new changes and updates to the way we run our department. TeamSpeak protocols have hit the system hard this month and it's been interesting to see how you have all adapted to this new way of operating. The mandatory muted duty channels are still under evaluation and the Executive Staff team will be reviewing this in the next few days. As always your opinions and suggestions are always valued and read, please continue to post them in the relevant board for you to have your say. Continue the hard work in the field and administratively, i'd like to see the promotions list gradually increase in size as the months go on, so keep on top of posting your reports and it'll pay off in the long run!

On behalf of the Executive and Command Staff teams, have a great month and we'll have another newsletter for you at the same time, same place on the 1st of July.
