Hello GTA 5 Community
Things that need to be addressed
Marketing and advertising of the community
We all realize that we have lost a huge marketing and advertising outlet here in the community. In order for us to grow as a community, we need to find a way to get our community out to interested parties.
Now, how can we do this? Well, that is for you as a community to decide. Some recommendations:
Start a Youtube Channel
Start Streaming Community Events
When on other games/communities, wear your community tags
Meet new people and gauge their interest in our type of RP
These are just a few tips on how we all as a community can generate interest and increase our member base.
Guys and girls, we are in a position where everyone owns this community and really has a say in what direction we take. Let us take advantage of this opportunity and move our community forward
Names in Game
We remind everyone that when going into game you are to change your steam name to your TeamSpeak name, (Rank) (Name). e.g. Cst. Example.
This allows us to keep track of who is joining the server and ensure that any unwanted person does not get into the server. Those who fail to change names when joining the server may be kicked or asked to leave the server and fix their name.
Effective immediately when units are calling into control you will now use your vehicle call sign (e.g. Unit: “Control, 5-Bravo-29”, Control XX: “Go ahead 5-Bravo-29”). This change is a move that will better allow us to emulate real life operations. Callsigns may be shortened if you would like (e.g. “Bravo-29”), but using your full vehicle call sign is recommended. This change is on a trial basis, and we will be working towards eliminating individual unit call signs.
A problem we have noticed with this system is that when you are trying to contact another unit you may not recall their vehicle call sign. In this case you are permitted to call the member by name (e.g. “Cst. Lemming from 5-Bravo-29”).
Closing of Watch 3
Due to staffing issues, it is imperative that we temporarily close Watch 3. This move did not come lightly but was necessary to ensure effective leadership for all constables. The senior NCOs and Inspectors will be reviewing this decision on a regular basis to determine the appropriate time to re-open the watch. Members of Watch 3 will be distributed between Watches 1 and 2 as below.

Watch 1 Operation NCO
We are pleased to announce that Satar has accepted the position of Operations NCO for Watch 1, replacing Dave who has decided to step down. In accepting his new role, Satar has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.
Satar has demonstrated great leadership and performed exceptionally well in his role as Watch NCO. The entire leadership team looks forward to his continuing contribution to the community.
