CCA Protocol Handbook
This protocol handbook is handed out to every unit who has completed basic training and is accepted into the Combine Civil Authority with a rank of 05 or higher.
In this handbook you will learn protocole for certain situations, how to handle those and knowing what to do if there is no high ranking unit on duty.
When a suspect has committed a level two violation or higher, he/she is eligible for detention and can be send to jail. Depending on the units rank and the violation that is committed, the unit can give the suspect a suitable punishment (See the CCA handbook for information about violations and adequate punishments.) which could lead to the incarceration of that individual. When the unit proceeds to bring a suspect to the Nexus for detention, the unit should always conduct a full search on the individual after which him/her would be tied up with the given zipties. After this process the suspect is ready for transportation to the Nexus, depending on rank the unit may proceed alone or with help of a higher ranking unit, to lead the individual to a jail unit. Always notify a Judge 04 (with completed interrogation training) or higher that you brought in a prisoner for detention, so this unit can proceed with interrogation if needed. When there is no Judge unit on duty at the moment, always inform another high ranking unit or wait until one comes on duty. Remember to always write on the notepad by the jail door.
A Judgement Waiver is the state in which the city will be after a certain city endangering situation, in which CCA units are given a lot more autonomy. CCA units are able to charge citizens with heavier verdicts for any minimal mistake that citizen makes, this is orderd by the Division Leader or Sectorial Commander. (Those are the only ranks who are able to proceed with a JW)
Citizens are to be moven indoors to their appartments, when the streets are cleared the units proceed to lock the appartment blocks. After the appartment blocks are locked, every citizen still outside are to be detained and interrogated for what reason they are outside while a JW is active.
Storm main tasks while a JW is active are to patrol the high risk areas, conduct sewer sweeps and engage armed citizens. The DvL can give them the abbilty to amputate at any rank depending on the risk of the current JW that is active. Storm units are also the main unit force to conduct raids on high risk locations, and can be handed out extra armament suitable to the situation by their DvL or EpU. They always work in squads while a JW is active. (Exception from units with 02 or above.)
Judge main task while a JW is active are to patrol the areas around the nexus and to guard CCA interests aswell as detaining and interrogation citizens. The DvL can give them the abbilty to apply any verdict and any rank depening on the risk of the current JW that is active. Also higher ranking Judge units can be called in to support Storm units with certain operations. They always work atleast in pairs when a JW is active.
Helix main task while a JW is active is to protect and secure sectorial scientific interests. After those interests are secured, they can be attached to Storm squads that are conducting opreations in the form of a combat medic or they can be attached to a Judge unit guarding or patrolling. While the JW is active Helix are under direct command of the Sectorial Commander and only follow orders from their own higher ranks.
Reasons for Judgement Waiver
- OOC: Server events like, rebel attacks/uprising or a zombie infestation and so on.
- Large anti citizen/rebel presence in certain areas
- Death of a high ranked CCA unit, high ranked CWU or member of the Ministery.
- Active rebel hideout found in the city
An Autonomous Waiver is the state in which the city will be, if the whole sector is in immediate danger. When the AW is active, All units except from <rank> are to follow the following protocols:
- All units are to report at the Nexus immediatly, unless orderd otherwise by the SeC.
- Every available Overwatch Transhuman Arm (OTA's) unit is to be deployed and wait until further commands from the SeC.
- Automatic weapons are issued to all other units by their DvL.
- The OTA's will proceed to accomplish their given objective.
- All other units will proceed and amputate every citizen not inside a residence.
- Every unit wil proceed with those protocoles until the SeC ends the AW and every unit will be required to report back in the Nexus, unless orderd otherwise by the SeC.
- All units unauthorized to carry certain armaments handed out while AW was active will hand those in at their DvL.
OTA Report directly to Sectorial Commander. Only Sectorial Commander can initiate a autonomous waiver!
Transporting Citizens in/out of Nexus
When a unit wants to take a citizen to the Nexus, he will ask the citizen first to come along.
If the citizens decides to resist, apply punishment with the stunstick until the citizen is unconcious, then proceed to tie the citizen and drag him/her to the Nexus.
If the citizen has conducted a violation and is on its way to the jail unit, this citizen is required to be tied up inside the Nexus at all times.
When a Citizen reports to the Nexus front gate and has an appointment with a minister, the citizen will be asked to apply and his information will be checked on the datapad. If everything is correct, the particular unit will communicate with the minister that should have an appointment with the citizen. If the minister confirms, the unit will proceed with a full search on the citizen regardless if this citizen is a CWU member or not. If the citizen is clear, the unit will escort him/her to the waiting room where the citizen will be welcomed by the particular minister or a unit tasked by the minister to get the citizen up to the office.
THE UNIT ESCORTING THE CITIZEN WILL NOT LEAVE THE CITIZEN ALONE UNTILL THE CITIZEN IS HANDED OVER TO ANOTHER UNIT.
IF THE PARTICULAR CITIZEN THAT VISITS A MINISTER IS A NON-LOYALIST, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AN ARMED UNIT GUARDING THE OFFICE DOOR.
The Judge division is tasked with the detainment and interrogation of citizens.
When a citizen is put in the jailing unit, this individual might depending on the violation that was committed have usefull information. In this case a higher ranking Judge unit can proceed with a interrogation to gain data on anti citizen activities that are happening in the City. This could be information regarding rebel hideouts, blackmarket shops, smuggling activities and more.
At the rank of 02 or higher when in the judge division, a unit gets the ability to start and investigation and/or interrogations. (See the CCA handbook for the excact permissions per rank regarding investigations and interrogations)
When interrogating citizens and if possible, try to get a 05 or 04 with you so they can also learn the process of interrogating.
If a unit wants to proceed with an interrogation, the particular individual should be moved from his jail to an interrogation room which are located on the same level. If you are moving a high risk individual always escort this person with atleast 2 units. Units in the Judge division will get training about specific interrogation techniques and specialized procedures from their higher ranks. Those trainings are required to be completed otherwise a unit cannot reach a higher rank.
Datapad protocols and procedures
The datapad is a very efficient system that contains data about every citizen, to check global CCA objectives and notes, adding or removing loyalist points and a lot more. Every unit that has completed basic training will be handed a datapad.
When units are conducting inspections on citizens, they can use the datapad to gain information about the citizens they are inspecting such as if the particular citizens has committed any violations, if there are any notes made about the citizen (For example: suspicion on certain activities, earlier investigations or interrogations) and basic things like name, citizen number and the amount of loyalty points. This information can be used to decide how a unit should interact with that citizen.
OOC: when the citizen applies write in chat: /data <citizen's name> and it will open a screen with information which you as CCA can edit, or gain information from.
If a citizen has committed a violation the datapad is used to add this violation to the citizen's record. This is done by opening that particular citizens page by typing in his name.
This open a screen with all the information about that individual and if the person made more violations in the past they will also appear here. When adding to violation to this persons page, use this form: date and time | <violation points +/- > | Violation | Name
Example of a correct form: 18/08/2006 18:25 | 1 | Verbal insult of a unit | John Doe
OOC: use the /data <citizen's name> to open citizens records.
The datapad can be used to see global information regarding the Combine Civil Authority of that particular city, to see this info, go to the 'objectives' section and this will open a screen. At this screen information can be found about the current objectives for the CCA, important notes for every unit like situations which happened earlier or suspicious citizens. It is suggested for every unit to check the objectives every hour to stay up to date with the current situation in the city.
OOC: write in the chat: /objectives to acces all this information.
If a citizen did something in favour for the Union, a unit can use the datapad to add
loyalist points to that citizen. When a citizen is committing a violation a unit should first remove loyalty points and at the point where a citizen doesn't have anymore loyalty points the unit should add violation points instead. When opening a citizens record in the datapad, in the top right is a tool too add and remove loyalist points. The loyalty reward which gives an ration token can only be triggered once, and has to be logged.
OOC: use the /data <citizen's name> when screen will open, in the top you can add or remove loyalist points.
During a workshift there should be at least one unit present, if able to ensure safety and prevent stealing or other violations. After the workshift is done, the citizens can be awarded with the item of your choice. E.g. money, ration tokens, items or similar.
The unit can choose not to give any award due to violations, instability or similar. The unit may award two loyalty points in special circumstances which seem fit, preferably agreed with a elite unit first.
When a unit completes certain specialized trainings within his division, gets issued a new firearm or other items. This matter should always be added to the units datapad record and signed by the person who issued this to the unit or conducted the units training. When a unit is in possession of specialised items which require a certain training or rank, the unit should at all times be able to show through his datapad record he is eligble to carry that item. Should a unit fail to do so, he/she will be punished accordingly to the protocol breach violations. The form for adding completed specialised training or special issued items to a units record is:
date and time| <training completed/item issued | <name of person who signed this>
a correct filled in example: 18/08/2006 18:48 | Issued 9mm | EpU.950
When a unit wants to change division, the unit will need to contact their Division Leader for approval, the Division Leader also needs to get approval from the other division to transfer the unit. Before a successful transfer can be done, the unit needs to fulfill the missed training requirements for new division at their current rank before the transfer is made. The rank stays the same.
