Gonna start off by saying that I'm glad to see that a thread like this was finally made, as I have some things that I'd like to point out for a while now.
The first thing that I'd like to point out is the pursuit protocols on this server. To my understanding, it's basically the old take off, call it into TAC, intercept, and try to box them in as soon as possible. Boxing is the first thing I'd like to cover.
This technique is pretty ancient and is something that roleplay servers are starting to get rid of. Boxing in suspects is inherently dangerous and possesses a massive risk for all the officers that do so, and it's not used in real life by big departments such as the LAPD. The suspect can easily pull out a gun and start popping shots at the officers who've boxed him in. I understand that you guys don't box suspects who are known to be armed but you can never be sure. Along with that, boxing looks really messy and unprofessional. High-risk stops are what's done when a suspect's vehicle stops in real life instead of surrounding it with cruisers.
This is an example of a high-risk stop. Cruisers parked behind the suspect's car, shouting verbal commands over the PA.
Here's a high-risk stop in action.
Another issue that I won't put too much into, are high-speed vehicles owned by the department. It's not a common thing I've seen around here, however, this is another thing from the older days on RP servers. High-performance vehicles would cost a ton of money for the department to maintain and simply not be efficient. They're unrealistic for the department to possess. Even the LAPD's Lambo isn't used for pursuits, it's only used for charity purposes.
The next issue I'd like to tackle is character portrayal. With all due respect, some of the character portrayal I've seen from some members in this faction is just blatantly unrealistic. This includes age, income, and assets. Not gonna point any fingers but I've seen a Detective III with a bachelors degree at 24 years old who was even featured in a department newsletter with that exact backstory. Detective IIIs are the equivalent of Sergeant IIs who'd be in their late thirties to early forties. In my opinion, you guys should lay out a rule requiring members to roleplay being a certain age at a certain rank. There's a rank guide somewhere on the forums which you guys can take influence from.
I've also seen several sports/supercars parked outside Mission Row, and have seen members of the faction driving such cars (can't remember who exactly, so I couldn't report them if I wanted to). It should be understood that being a police officer is a job for their character; their main source of income. A POII in the LAPD alone makes around ~$71,000 a year pre-tax.
If I come up with anything else, I'll post it, however, these are the primary issues which I could think about at the top of my head.
