My thoughts on DHS

DHS seems really boring, they basically only get called when crisis comes, special assignments and when government officials come on Stapleton. It can be fun at some points but it’s just not really up to standards.

DHS has multiple divisions, certain divisions such as FPS are responsible for state-wide law enforcement and may conduct normal operations such as ‘regular’ law enforcement officers like deputies and troopers. You are attempting to define DHS based on two divisions it consists of.

DHS is mainly active when high class GO’s are on but of course only members of the Executive Branch, The Chief Court justice, and Speaker of the house get it leaving them a lot of time to do nothing since a majority of the people I listed don’t even go in the county.

I rarely see DHS on conducting traffic stops, so far I have seen NONE of FPS conducting a traffic stop.

True.

FPS tend to just sit outside of Fed’s place or the Gov’s Manor when I’m online.

Which is boring.

It’s not just FPS though in DHS. Different people like different things I suppose, if you want to protect officials join SS, if you want the action join CRT etc.

Yes, that is true.

FPS mainly enforce the law in Prominence however they are permitted to go outside of Prominence and pretty much patrol anywhere state-wide, this is mainly due to the fact that FPS isn’t quite big at the moment - and a lot of its current members are inactive.

Activity should improve soon though since DHS just had applications open.

As a Former SS Officer, I can tell you that DHS is fairly fun, we may not be online all the time, but we had fun. DHS is fun if you make it fun

DHS will get better. You gotta remember the new secretary has only been in their job for a few weeks. Give them time to recruit and that.

As a former Secret Service Officer, Sergeant, and Director of the Department of Homeland Security, I can ensure you that being apart of the department is truly fun. Granted it looks boring as an outsider, but when you’re truly into it, you make it fun.

Secret Service may be boring when there are no important officials within the server, but the minute they pop up is the minute all the action happens.

FPS is fairly boring in v2 specifically, mainly because they don’t get much traffic to enforce. However, escorts are a different story, but I don’t think they are common.

CRT is extremely fun when SCSO and FSP call for them.

It’s all based on time and incidents. Roleplay and run the system properly and you will have a blast.

Also if DHS does get control over TSA that’s another thing for them to do and will encourage more applications. Petition to put TSA under DHS control:

DHS is really important, despite how it may look. All departments have their ups and downs, people just have to find the one that fits them and try to stick through the boring parts.

Indeed it is. DHS is needed. Yes, they may sometimes be inactive, etc. but let’s face it, every department has an inactive side of things. As I see it, DHS is doing good, and with TSA becoming another thing, they will definitely become an active department.
