The AJM LCPD Force is the longest running and top ranked police force online the Playstation 3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV (This according to GTA.NET). It consists of over 50 certified AJM LCPD Force officers that protect the streets of the Liberty City metro area day and night. It started in November of 2008.
The police chief and founder is USAPatriot (ajmunited) who uses the unit number 180.
The officers follow protocol and restrictions, as well as a strict code and law. All officers must have the basic body armor, a pistol, and a patrol car. The force even has at least one dispatcher at all times for patrols. All marked units except the Police Stinger are used. The Police Patrol, Merit, the Buffalo, and the motorcycle are all used for patrols. The Stinger is used for high speed pursuits, or parades. The force also has APC's for Special Forces, as well as three different types of helicopters.
AJM LCPD Force officers are not allowed to cuss, or show disrespect to criminals. It is well known for this attribute and standard. All officers treat others respectably. All officers are also very close to each other in their shift groups. All officers can communicate on the official forum page for the AJM LCPD Force, but otherwise, the morning and evening shift officers do not see each other on patrols.
There are two shifts run by the AJM LCPD Force. There is a morning shift and an evening/night shift. Each shift is run by two different commanders, but whenever the chief is on duty, all authority goes to him. The morning shift is from 12:01am-12pm. The Evening/night shift is from 12:01pm-12am. All times Pacific Standard time.
A department wide test was conducted in 2009 to compare response times and situation resolve between the two shifts. Times were comparable to each other with only a few major differences on these tests. All tests were controlled and acted out the same. They varied from pursuits, to handling a drunk, to a terrorist situation. Both shifts equalled about the same in handling crimes, with the evening/night shift being a bit better on calming criminals down in a situation.
All officers can communicate on the official forum page for the AJM LCPD Force, but otherwise, the morning and evening shift officers do not see each other on patrols. Special attention was made that PSN names were kept secret between the two shifts as not to mess up shift rotation.
The force's main webpage is on AJM STUDIOS.NET.
The main division is the patrol unit, which is split into three patrol groups, each with a different leading officer. The chief is the top leader, and out ranks anyone when he is on. The patrol shifts are morning, evening/night. Afternoon is part of the evening shift. The patrol vehicles include the marked vehicles of the Vapid Cruiser, Merit, and Buffalo. The unmarked Merit and Buffalo can also be used.
Special Forces units are deployed when a situation arrises that they are needed. They are a specially trained and equipped tactical unit for higher level crimes. This unit also has access to the APC, three police choppers, and in special cases, patrol boats.
Search and RescueEdit
Search and Rescue is a division of the force, and they have boats and helicopters to help out. The Search and Rescue division provides air support for patrol officers. Specially trained officers use the chopper and go by the call name Eagle One, when using this helicopter. This unit also has patrol boats.
Fire and Medics are also part of the force, and will provide basic needs and services when called upon by a unit and dispatch.
The AJM LCPD Force uses all the police stations within the Liberty City Metropolitan area. The same goes for the fire department units, and medical units, which often share North Algoquin Station as their hub, though they use the real stations in the city as well. Criminals are dropped off at the nearest station often times, or are dropped off at the Alderney State Prison if too big a crime is broken, or a certain amount of crimes are done. Injured people are dropped off at the nearest hospital, or one that can cater to a persons medical needs.
North Algoquin Station (East Holland Station) is the main station used by the AJM LCPD Force.
