Okay I want to ask for some feedback from the player base about a few things that I think are being done wrong in DEPD...for all I know it's just my skewed perspective so I'd like to hear from anyone else who has an opinion on this.

First let me say that I've run my own sim in the past and I get that it can be a numbers thing sometimes...the more traffic the better so obviously you try to attract more players to your sim...on the other hand if you start losing players because you are not paying attention to the wants or needs of those customers you end up in a downward spiral of losing players as fast or faster than you get new ones. great that's out of the way let's move on to what I see as needing tweaked or outright fixed.

DEPD is a corruption ridden police department staffed by people who are at best criminally incompetent...if not outight evil and/or insane (Yes I'm talking about you there Van), however, they have to still present the appearance of actually doing the job of policing this town. Several things make this difficult besides the fact that almost all the officers are corrupt:

First the PD are not well armed...no police department in the United States is not armed...yet DE is not. The criminals have the advantage over us due to this fact alone...if an officer faces off against 2 criminals he or she can rest assured they will lose for the simple fact that once that taser fires 1 shot it has to be reloaded...and you can't reload while the second criminal is beating you with a tire iron
Secondly the PD leadership has no say in who can or cannot apply as a police officer...meaning if I commit a murder today...as soon as I'm released from jail I can apply to the police department...highly unrealistic and also feeds into the credibility problem. Also cops who are glaringly committing crimes...the leadership needs a way to address them as well...minor stuff is easy to cover up...raping and beating people in public not so easy to cover up so firing should be an option followed by jail time

Now...what are we doing right?

First off we have a good group of leaders who TRY to keep the PD from turning into just a bunch of rapists and thugs in uniforms. That is the key I think...DEPD is corrupt...but we have to make it look as if we are not

Secondly we are actually starting to get players in the PD who show up regularly. A police officer who reports for duty once every 6 to 8 weeks may as well not be a police officer. The more officers we have who show up the better the ROP gets for everyone...I mean how often do Roxy or Marty or Van or any of the other PD leaders actually get to do something besides play at running the PD? I know that they have other things they would like to do...and players out there would like to get some back at some of them as well...but often they have to say no to being kidnapped or beat up because the PD can't affords to lose them for a few days

Anyway those are just a few things I think need to be addressed...chime in...add to the list...discuss it...tell me I'm wrong and don't know what I'm talking about
