The Criminal Investigations Department is looking for new detectives to join our team. Before you apply, Here is some information on the Department
Introduction to CID
Here at CID we work with all other divisions within the MET. We are heavily requested daily to respond to various calls and attend a variety of incidents. Our detectives work hard to conduct detailed investigations on RP Characters, Some of our RP’s may decide to continue the RP after being arrested our job is to make that possible by carrying out a detailed investigation.
You may get requested to to deal with some of the following
Large amount of drugs or money found
And so many other cases
We report crimes and incidents into our database, sometimes these forms are used later on to assist investigations

Our case handlers would find themselves conducting interviews, gathering phone records, conducting property searches, requesting warrants and so much more
Case work is one of the most important parts of CID; it allows you to continue your investigations / roleplay out of the game. Gathering evidence and other information that may be helpful to completing the case and insuring we put the right person behind bars
Our case file system will mean you will have somewhere to post your evidence and case updates so that anyone you are working with has access to the same information as you so that we are all kept on the same page.
Along side this we also now use Sonran Cad this is used so that you are able to overview all the arrest record relating to a person which can be used in game or on a application.
CID Detectives Will work closely with the Forensic Investigation Team. you will help analyse any crime scene and get all the evidence possible to aid the investigation. Forensics teams are often used on larger scenes and get to really find out what happened. All evidence can be taken back to the lab for testing
CID SPECIAL OPERATIONS TEAM (S.O.T)
The S.O.T work closely as a team to conduct perfectly planned stakeouts and operations to detain suspects of various crimes. Usually the S.O.T will make the arrest during the crime, which requires a great deal of communication skill and teamwork

5 | Fundamental Police Powers
Once sworn in, Police Officers are designated powers for use in policing and protecting the communities they serve. Your powers and their uses will be explained during your initial training but there are a few fundamental powers that you may find beneficial to know prior to starting with us.
Section 24 Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE):
Arrest - To arrest a suspect they must have been placed under caution and have had both the grounds and necessity of the arrest clearly explained to them. An arrest should not be carried out unless you have reasonable grounds to suspect that an offence has been committed, is about to be committed or is currently being committed.
Caution - A person must be told the caution once they are arrested. The caution advises people of their rights while under arrest. The caution does not have to be recited verbatim, as long as the meaning of the caution is not lost. Best practice of course is to remember the caution exactly.
“You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned, something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say, can be given in evidence”.
Remember, just because you can arrest, this does not mean you have to arrest. Consider alternate methods of dealing with a situation, such as inviting the person to a voluntary interview at a police station on a later occasion, or by reporting them for summons.
Search Of Suspect
Section 1 PACE 1984:
Stop and Search - An officer can stop and search anyone that they have reasonable grounds to suspect that they have any stolen or prohibited articles on them (or in/on their vehicle). You must use the GOWISELY method, in order to ensure your search is lawful you can detain a suspect for a search.
Section 32 PACE 1984:
Search after arrest: Once a person has been arrested, they can be searched under this power for DIE:
D - Implements that cause Danger to themselves or others
I - Implements to assist escape
E - Evidence of any offences
GO-WISLEY does not have to be followed for S32 searches
