MY THOUGHTS ON THE STATE PATROL
Recently, the State Patrol has not been where it needs to be in terms of excellency and discipline. The Sheriff’s Office has set record-high standards for how law enforcement should be in Firestone, something that we haven’t seen in years. The State Patrol’s administration’s poor decision making has contributed to the fall of the department in terms of result and standards. In this thread, I will be going in depth on my thoughts on the State Patrol and things that the department must do in order to bring back light to progress both administratively and operational.
DISCLAIMER: In no shape or form do I have anything against the department. I simply want to express my thoughts on the department in the most civil matter.
The department’s structure has not been suitable for all of members of its high command. This has led to the resignation of some of its top high command members. I do acknowledge that the lack of the development on ASU has flawed operations for the department, but this cannot create a gap between success and failure for the department. I do applaud the efforts made to cover that gap through creativity though.
On the top of structure, many of the divisions within the department aren’t held to suitable standards. This has led to divisions ultimately failing because they don’t have proper leadership and the motive of achieving progress.
Many employees within the department are flat-out immature. This is strongly reflected in their behavior on Discord and in-game. In such a prestigious department, this simply cannot happen. While the department does have policies in regards to the said subject, there is light enforcement of those policies and high command members who fail to follow them. Some can argue that the dismissal of ex-Superintendent WaterLostic had led a downfall for the department in terms of professionalism and discipline.
As mentioned earlier, many of the department’s administrative decisions have been controversial. Most notably, the decision to strip the ASU of its dodge charger. While the department is in control of its usage of the vehicle, it is seen as unfair by many. The recent decision to re-appoint a former Major has been also been seen as controversial. While I myself don’t have any issues with that decision, there is no certainty that change will be brought to the department’s administration.
The Superintendent’s personal issues have been a setback for the department. While I do understand that everyone has issues in their personal lives, this simply cannot affect one’s performance in a department that heavily relies on its leader for progress.
While the majority of this thread may seem negative towards the State Patrol, this gives the department an opportunity to reflect on its major issues. This thread will be open towards user who wish to express their thoughts on the department along with feedback for it.
