STANDARD ORDINANCES

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Miranda warnings "Miranda Rights"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The suspect must be properly advised of their Miranda rights—namely, the Fifth Amendment right against compelled self incrimination (and, in furtherance of this right, the right to counsel while in custody). The Fifth Amendment right to counsel means that the suspect has the right to consult with an attorney before questioning begins and have an attorney present during the interrogation. The Fifth Amendment right against compelled self incrimination is the right to remain silent—the right to refuse to answer questions or to otherwise communicate information. Therefore, before any interrogation begins, the police must advise the suspect that

"They have the right to remain silent, anything they say or do can and will be used against them in a court of law, they have the right to an attorney after initial processing has been completed,
then ask them, do you understand your rights as they have been read to you?"

There is no precise language that must be used in advising a suspect of their Miranda rights. The point is that whatever language is used the substance of the rights outlined above must be communicated to the suspect.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Force Matrix
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Use of Force Model is a mechanism for use in understanding the dynamics of the use of force. Its implied principles must be transmitted from the classroom to the street. The Use of Force Model provides an additional degree of clarity and focus to this critical topic of contemporary law enforcement. Remember, implementation of the Use of Force Model is your responsibility.

Force Level 1: Officer Presence
- Just an officer being on scene is a form of the force continuum. You present yourself as a uniformed officer to people you meet, it can be counted as a used of force to people around you. Just seeing you with your uniform, badge, and utility belt can make people back away.

Force Level 2: Verbal Communication
- Verbal communication is key when dealing with situations. Police officers must train all the time on their communication. If you can't communicate with people, then there's an issue. Communication techniques can be used to lower the situation down, and can be treated as an act of force.

Force Level 3: Control Techniques
- Control techniques do not involve any type of tools or weapons. It's simply using a "stance" and "steering" people. If you present yourself as a threat by the way you stand, and the way you move your hands, it will most likely lesson the opposing threat.

Force Level 4: Physical Force
- Physical force, again, does not involve any type of weapons. It has to do with using your hands and getting physical with a suspect. If they have nothing on them, no weapons, and are "normal" size or smaller than you are, you should be able to use your hands and physical force to apprehend the suspect without using any type of tools or weapons.

Force Level 5: Impact Tools
- Impact tools are your taser, OC (pepper) spray and your nitestick (baton). These are weapons not meant to cause the person to become deceased, but to stop a resister. A taser is a 50,000 volt weapon that releases 19 pulses per second into a body of a human being. There is a 5-8 second burst when the trigger is pulled. OC Spray is used to stop a resister by stopping their ability to see and focus correctly. OC Spray affects ones sight, breathing and skin by irritation. A nitestick is very handy and should be used to affect a suspects leg to knock them down during their aggression.

Force Level 6: Lethal Force
- Lethal force is the use of your side-arm. It's only to be used during situations where one is outnumbered, one has a firearm, or a suspect is coming at police officer while the officer is almost unconscious and the suspect may go for their firearm.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STANDARD DAILY PROCEDURES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MPS Duties
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the MPS Duties section. Here you will find useful information about patrolling in an MPS Unit, or more commonly known as a Tow Truck.

Your job while on MPS Duty is to clean up the streets of San Fierro and to learn the streets and surroundings. While on MPS duty you are to never respond to anything. If you see a vehicle that is broken down, either in the middle of the street or on some grass/dirt, you are to move it out of the way so its not illegally on the road. Usually if a car is broken down its not there because it wants to be.

If you see a vehicle that is not damaged in any way, your job is to move it out of the road (or where ever it is illegally parked) and ticket the vehicle. If a vehicle has 2 tickets on it then you are to impound the vehicle. A little confusion that I will clear up now is that, if a vehicle has a ticket already on it and then you place another ticket on it; that is counted as 2 tickets and you may impound the vehicle.
