  29. To be a part of Traffic is extremely demanding, as you need to be proficient in defensive and high-speed driving multiple types of vehicles, management, and investigation of accident scenes, and pursuing vehicles with the aim to end the pursuit most safely and effectively. You will need to be Proficient in the following vehicles:
  31. [list=][*]Police Cruisers
  32. - CopCarLA (Ford Police Interceptor)
  33. [*]Pursuit Intervention Vehicles
  34. - Sultan (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X)
  35. - Bullet (Chevy Corvette ZR1)
  36. - Buffalo (Shelby GT500)
  37. [*]Motorcycles
  38. - HPV-1000 (Harley Davidson Electra Glide)[/list]

  44. [size=130][b][u]IV: Division Policies - Use of Specialized Vehicles[/u][/b][/size]
  46. Due to the specialization of the division, and the added tools at a Traffic Officer’s disposal, Traffic has many policies to not only prevent abuse of these privileges but also to allow LAPD Traffic to be looked upon for guidance by other departments.
  48. One of the most essential policies within traffic is the use of the added vehicles. The Bullet, Buffalo, Sultan, and HPV are all high-performance vehicles which are allotted to Traffic in order for the division to do its job correctly. With the added privilege of these vehicles comes added responsibility. It is expected that these vehicles will come back at the end of the day in one piece. Pursuit Intervention Vehicles (PIVs) are not only speedy but can also have unexpected handling, especially coming from a police cruiser. You will be required to undergo testing by a Supervisor or Division Commander in each vehicle before you are permitted to use it.
  50. In addition, it is expected that you use regular patrol vehicles if there are less than 3 Officers on duty and may only enter a PIV with at least 4 Officers on duty. The reason for this is to maintain an increased police presence in the city. Keep in mind that you always need duty/watch commander permission to take any specialized vehicle out of the station.

  56. [size=130][b][u]IV-1: Pursuit Intervention Units (PIU)[/u][/b][/size]
  58. The LSPD Traffic division has access to three types of pursuit intervention vehicles (PIVs), each of which has its purpose and specialty.
  60. The Sultan (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII-X) is the city traffic vehicle. It will be the first vehicle you will have access to when entering into the Traffic division. The Sultan has a huge advantage in the city, as it has a tight turning circle, is extremely maneuverable, and has immensely good acceleration. Downfalls of this vehicle include a top speed of 93 MPH and a lack of armoring, making it susceptible to being disabled with relative ease.
  62. The Buffalo (Ford Shelby GT500) is the mid-range traffic vehicle. With a top speed of 103 MPH, it is an excellent high-speed pursuit vehicle. However, it has a nasty way of oversteering, making spin-outs prevalent. It is not recommended that this is used much within the city, as it is not a very good handling vehicle.
  64. The Bullet (Chevy Corvette ZR1) is the best of the Pursuit Intervention Vehicles, as long as you know how to handle it. Having a top speed of 112 MPH, it can keep up with the fastest of suspect vehicles, and it handles nearly as well as the Sultan, except with far more oversteer. Take note that you cannot use the footbrake and turn at the same time.
  66. Keep in mind that you [b][u]MUST[/u][/b] be deemed proficient by one of the Traffic Division high command [b][u]AND[/u][/b] have permission from the duty commander before you may drive [b][u]ANY[/u][/b] of these vehicles.

  72. [size=130][b][u]IV-2: Division Policies - Motorcycles[/u][/b][/size]
  74. Traffic officers are permitted to use marked traffic bikes (HPV-1000s) when the duty commander authorizes it like any other Traffic vehicle. Also when taking out the traffic bike, both bikes must be out at the same time and remain together as a joint unit. You will never be allowed to patrol by yourself on a bike for your own safety.
  76. Motorcycle officers are permitted to carry long rifles, submachine guns, and shotguns on their bike, depending on their rank. Assault rifles and submachine guns may be slung around the rider’s chest if necessary. Permitted weapons are as follows:
  78. [list][*]Mounted INSIDE the hard saddlebags or slung around the rider's chest:
  79. - Colt M4A1-CQC Assault Carbine 5.56
  80. - Heckler & Koch HK-416C/G36C 5.56
  81. - Heckler & Koch MP5K 9mm/UMP .40/.45
  82. [*]Inside a hard scabbard mounted on the side of the motorcycle
  83. - Remington 870-P 12 gauge
  84. - Heckler & Koch G41[/list]
  86. The weapons listed above should be the ONLY weapons carried by motorcycle officers besides their service handgun, and should be used sparingly. Remember; we are not SWAT.
  88. The HPV-1000 Marked Traffic Bike (Harley Davidson Electra Glide) has a low speed of 83 MPH, it’s main purpose is to catch minor traffic offenses. It is not to be used in pursuits due to its low speed unless you are the one engaging in the pursuit, then you can continue until another unit can take over.

  94. [size=130][b][u]V: LSPD Air-1[/u][/b][/size]
  96. Air-1 is available to all POII+ throughout the department as long as they get certified. To be certified to fly, you must first apply here. If you are accepted for training, you will be trained by one of Traffic’s high command. However, even if you are air certified, you may not use Air-1 without permission from the duty commander.
  98. Air-1 will assist in pursuits and other priority situations which require a bird’s-eye view. It may also be tasked with transporting LSPD command staff and/or SWAT teams to other jurisdictions to participate in situations or meetings. Other agencies can request Air-1, Air-1 can be used in cases like missing juveniles, Pursuits, OIS (Officer Involved Shootings) or to locate a Missing person(s) Air-1 can also be used in high priority situations. If you are in the Air unit, your designator will always be Air-1, Air 5, Air 11.

  104. [size=130][b][u]VI: Pursuits[/u][/b][/size]
  106. If you have been accepted into traffic, your driving is exceptional. However, even the most excellent drivers are not good pursuit drivers when they don’t know the rules of a pursuit.
  108. A healthful pursuit ends with three things: Minimal property damage, minimal injury/loss of life, and apprehension of the suspect(s). Generally speaking, these goals can only be achieved by keeping proper pursuit protocol in place.
  110. One of the most critical parts of the pursuit protocol is keeping useful callouts. Calling out the street names, the direction of travel, and speed of the pursuit can assist in not only getting units to the pursuit but can help to prevent accidental collisions. /backup's should be used sparingly, if at all. There are several reasons for this. The primary goal is that a /backup doesn't show anyone where the pursuit is unless you're very near to it. The only times when /backup's should be used are when going off-road or going into SD’s jurisdiction.
  112. Excellent communication in pursuit is beneficial in general. When a pursuit is initiated, ensuring you keep any and all non-essential radio traffic out of the dispatch channel. Units who continuously interrupt priority traffic with non-essential traffic will be moved out of the channel and dealt with by the duty commander or supervisor. The only time when priority traffic should be interrupted is in a situation which takes more priority, such as an officer in trouble or shots fired.
  114. Another vital part of pursuits is proper form. Keeping the proper form in a pursuit can be one of the major factors in helping to prevent collisions. There should only be three (3) units directly involved in a pursuit. However, if the suspect is known or assumed to be a highly-wanted fugitive, or is known to be armed and dangerous, there may be more units involved, depending on the decision of the Duty Commander or Supervisor and the primary unit on the pursuit. In addition, you may not pass the unit in front of you on a pursuit without first confirming that it will not interfere. Failure to comply with this may result in a collision and possibly severe injury. In addition, you may not overtake units from another jurisdiction if their pursuit leads into SD jurisdiction without first gaining their permission for the unit you need to pass and alerting them. Finally, after obtaining permission to move, ensure that you tell the unit that you are passing which side you are passing on and when you are passing.
  116. One final, and very important thing is to never pull out in front of a unit on a pursuit. When exiting an intersection that you know or believe to be in the pursuit area, always wait a few seconds before pulling out.
  118. Traffic should be the role model to which the rest of the LSPD and other departments should look to in proper pursuit driving. If you are observed not following these rules, you may be punished for action and possibly removed from the division.

  124. [size=130][b][u]VII: Heavy Vehicle Enforcement[/u][/b][/size]
  126. One of Traffic’s primary jobs within the city is to manage the transport of goods and the vehicles that move them. Los Santos has recently seen a huge increase in illegal goods being transported into the city. For that reason, Traffic must be vigilant and must check any truck that they see fit, ensuring that those who are transporting legally continue to do so safely while those who are doing so illegally are brought to justice.
  128. When stopping a heavy vehicle (such as a CDL, Ocean Docks, or Bayside Materials truck), always make sure that you have another unit with you. This can aid in safety, as the other officer can stay in their vehicle while the formalities (license, reg, etc.) are discussed and, when these are done, check the back of the truck while you stay with the driver.
  130. When stopping a heavy vehicle of any sort, always have the driver step out of the car. This is to prevent injury to you, as heavy vehicles stick out into the road more than cars. Go to the sidewalk on the other side of the vehicle, and ask the driver for their license, proceed as you would with any other traffic stop. After running the driver in the MDC or over the radio, ask them if it’s alright if you search their truck. If they approve your request, have your secondary officer search the truck. If they deny you, however, you still have the legal permission to search the back of the truck, so long as you have probable cause. You are not required to have a search warrant (Chimel v. California). In addition, if the driver is acting suspiciously, you can search the person’s belongings (Wyoming v. Houghton), again, without a warrant. These rules apply to the search of all vehicles, not merely heavy vehicles.
  132. Probable cause can include erratic behavior, smelling something, and other strange things. Ensure you explain to the suspect what your probable cause is. Stay with the driver while the other officer searches the truck. If anything illegal is found, clear the vehicle and place the driver under arrest. If not, close the truck up and send the driver on their way.

  152. [size=130][b][u]IX: Traffic Investigation Section[/u][/b][/size]
  154. One of the sub-divisions of Traffic is traffic investigation. Traffic Investigators (TI’s) investigate all traffic-related crimes, including hit-and-run, vehicular manslaughter, trafficking of illegal goods, etc. Traffic investigators will work closely with CIB to fulfill the ultimate goal of bringing offenders to justice. TI’s are deemed to be detectives, and for that reason may use unmarked vehicles such as the Premier and Washington to fulfill their goals, so long as it is deemed appropriate by the duty commander/supervisor.
  156. Traffic Enforcement Units will be the go to division for clearing the scenes of MVA’s (Motor Vehicle Accidents) in numerous scenarios. You will be tested in many skills including directing traffic, blocking off any scene, and cleaning up any scene using the smallest and least amount of barricades, roadblocks, cones, etc., you will also be required to understand how to clean up a scene in a swift manner however organized manner.
  158. In order to become a traffic investigator, you will be tested to determine your aptitude for detective work. It is recommended that you have previous experience as a detective.
  160. Keep in mind that your primary duty within Traffic is always to enforce the laws of the city, so detective work will not always be done every day.
  162. In addition to investigation, Traffic Investigators may also initiate bait car stings within the department, as well as working with the SASD on these.
