Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Does a police officer have the authority to arrest someone while off duty and/or write citations?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    This 'rule' varies all around the world. But in Liberty City all law enforcement are able to perform a full arrest (not simply a citizens arrest) while off duty. But they MUST state who they are affiliated with. (Type of law enforcement agency, example: either just saying POLICE or LCPD)

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You arrive on the scene of a serious traffic collision. What is the first thing you do?

    • A.

      Rush to see if anyone is injured and try to help them.

    • B.

      Call for backup. (Such as additional patrol units and EMS.)

    • C.

      Park your patrol vehicle in a way in which blocks the road to keep vehicles from getting too close to injured civilians and the collision.

    Correct Answer
    B. Call for backup. (Such as additional patrol units and EMS.)
    Explanation
    Calling for backup is definitely the first thing you want to do. This way other first responders such as EMS are on their way to the scene as soon as possible to assist. Calling for backup is simple and takes only seconds and can even be done WHILE positioning your vehicle to block a road.

    You do NOT try to help anyone on the scene unless they are in imminent danger, such as a car about to explode or someone trapped in wreckage. Once civilians are clear of any immediate danger you are to keep them in a comfortable position on the ground and request they move as little as possible. Let trained EMT's deal with further involvement with those injured.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    An armed suspect has been shot and injured by the police. He is laying on the ground. The suspect is bleeding and an ambulance is on its way to the scene. What do you do first?

    • A.

      Secure the weapon.

    • B.

      Give first aid to the suspect.

    • C.

      Cuff the suspect.

    Correct Answer
    A. Secure the weapon.
    Explanation
    Preferably in a situation like this one officer would go to the suspect to cuff them while another would go to secure the weapon. This should be done simultaneously.

    In situations where you are alone; you need to take possession of the weapon used by the suspect and secure it by keeping it out of the reach of the suspect. If a firearm, make sure the safety is engaged and if the suspect looks like they're too injured to continue fighting also remove the magazine and clear the chamber of any live rounds. Once this is done you should cuff the suspect.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the correct force to use against a person wielding a pistol in his or her hands but not pointing at anyone with it?

    • A.

      Yell at the suspect to drop the weapon.

    • B.

      Draw your firearm, aim it at the suspect, identify yourself as police, and yell at them to drop the weapon or they may be fired upon.

    • C.

      Draw your taser and fire it at them quickly before they can do anything with their pistol.

    Correct Answer
    B. Draw your firearm, aim it at the suspect, identify yourself as police, and yell at them to drop the weapon or they may be fired upon.
    Explanation
    A taser is not considered adequate like force. ALWAYS identify yourself as police. Make sure they know what you are asking them to do and that they do not have a choice in the matter. When you shoot, always shoot to kill, not injure. - Except in extreme rare circumstances where your life and others are not in jeopardy. If you shoot to injure someone and it is not very effective they could still attempt and succeed at firing their weapon at you, possibly causing injury or death.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What is the correct force to use once a suspect has started raising their firearm ready to shoot?

    • A.

      Scream at them as loud as you can telling them it's their last chance to drop the weapon.

    • B.

      Fire a shot near the suspect to let them know you're not screwing around.

    • C.

      Aim your firearm for the suspects center of mass and fire until the suspect is down/incapacitated and no longer a threat.

    Correct Answer
    C. Aim your firearm for the suspects center of mass and fire until the suspect is down/incapacitated and no longer a threat.
    Explanation
    Fire as many bullets as it takes for the suspect to be neutralized and no longer a potential threat to anyone. Once the suspect is down you need to immediately contact EMS if they have not already been put on stand by.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is the rule of "like force" in regards to law enforcement terminology?

    • A.

      Like force means that you should use EXACTLY the same amount of force being used against you, on them. Example: They are trying to beat you to death with their fists so you should return "like force" by hitting them back to subdue them.

    • B.

      Like force means that since you are a law enforcement officer you can use a deadly weapon in any confrontation that you feel necessary to use it.

    • C.

      You can't use excessive force against a suspect. Like force represents using SIMILAR force to the suspect. Example: If they are unarmed you could use your body, police baton, or taser to subdue them but not your firearm.

    Correct Answer
    C. You can't use excessive force against a suspect. Like force represents using SIMILAR force to the suspect. Example: If they are unarmed you could use your body, police baton, or taser to subdue them but not your firearm.
    Explanation
    Like force is using similar, but not exactly the same amount of force being used against you by any suspect.


    Examples:
    - A suspect is unarmed; you could use your body, police baton, or taser to subdue them but not your firearm because that falls under excessive use of force.
    - A suspect is armed with a knife; this is a deadly weapon so you could in turn use like force. Meaning anything from a taser, police baton, or firearm. You could even use your body (such as fists) but this is NOT recommended and you could face severe injury or death.
    - A suspect is armed with a firearm; the best way to handle this situation is to also use a firearm and get the best angle on your suspect to take the shot if you need to. Always watch for cross fire scenarios and avoid them at all costs.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You are out on your regular patrol route. Suddenly a vehicle collides with your patrol car and you realize you've been in what appears to be an accident. You can see the vehicle that hit you from your drivers seat and there is considerable damage to both vehicles. The vehicle that hit you is obviously inoperable and the occupants appear to still be inside. The interior components of your vehicle seem to be intact and working, except for your mobile data computer. You notice no immediate injury to yourself.Select the answer below that best represents the order of protocols to follow.

    • A.

      I should immediately contact dispatch and request code 3 for additional patrol units and EMS regarding a traffic collision. I should engage my lights to warn other motorists. I should then survey the scene and if there is a potential threat for fire notify dispatch immediately. I then make my way over to the vehicle that collided with mine. I then check on the status of the occupants of the vehicle, usually starting with the driver. I then notify dispatch of the patients status so it can be relayed to EMS who are en-route. I do what I can to stabilize the patients until EMS arrives. Once EMS has arrived on scene I attempt to setup a perimeter and allow other officers who arrive to begin an investigation.

    • B.

      My first priority is the safety of the occupants in the vehicle who hit me. I should rush to their aid and help them to the best of my abilities. Once I feel I have stabilized them as best as I can I then contact EMS and other patrol units for backup. I check to see if there is threat of fire on scene and if so, contact dispatch again to update them on the situation. Now that the occupants of the other vehicle are relatively stable I head back to my patrol vehicle to engage my lights to warn other motorists. Once EMS has arrived I reposition my patrol car to block traffic. Afterward I let the other officers begin an investigation.

    Correct Answer
    A. I should immediately contact dispatch and request code 3 for additional patrol units and EMS regarding a traffic collision. I should engage my lights to warn other motorists. I should then survey the scene and if there is a potential threat for fire notify dispatch immediately. I then make my way over to the vehicle that collided with mine. I then check on the status of the occupants of the vehicle, usually starting with the driver. I then notify dispatch of the patients status so it can be relayed to EMS who are en-route. I do what I can to stabilize the patients until EMS arrives. Once EMS has arrived on scene I attempt to setup a perimeter and allow other officers who arrive to begin an investigation.
    Explanation
    For this, I will simply explain why answer 2 is incorrect. Your first priority is almost always getting help to your location as soon as possible. You are not a one man/woman recking machine and you can't expect to save everyone yourself. The sooner you radio for help, the sooner they will arrive. Engaging the lights on your vehicle is something you want to do early on to warn motorists that are approaching from a distance that there is a traffic hazard or other emergency ahead and to slow down.

    It is unlikely that after a bad collision you could reposition your vehicle to block traffic, nor should you. Your patrol vehicle was involved in a traffic collision that has to be investigated like any other. This means that unless it is absolutely necessary, you do not move any vehicles involved in the collision until preliminary documentation has been made, such as photos or video. The position of the vehicles after the collision are important to investigators.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    You are in your patrol vehicle parked in a lot. You can see across the street from where you are. You think you are witnessing a burglary in progress at a local pawn shop but you can't be 100 percent certain. You saw three suspicious looking men dressed in even more suspicious clothing barge into the shop. Prior to this you noticed these same individuals parked in the lot outside of the business with the vehicle running for about ten minutes. You have just recently notified dispatch of the situation and two other units are responding code 1. It is now about a minute after the suspicious individuals walked into the pawn shop. Suddenly you hear the sound of gun fire emanating from inside the building.You should...

    • A.

      Rush inside and eliminate all the threats. Then attend to any victims of the gun fire. Make sure to notify your supervisor of what happened.

    • B.

      Yell, "Shots FIRED!" into your radio and initiate suppression fire on the suspects inside of the pawn shop until backup arrives. Once backup has arrived have at least one officer keep up the suppression fire until more units head into the pawn shop to eliminate the suspects.

    • C.

      Quickly notify dispatch of shots fired and re-prioritize the call as a code 3 with a full zone response as well as placing EMS on standby. Inform dispatch of the make/model of the suspect vehicle, include as much information about the suspects themselves and the current situation as possible. Make sure you have adequate tactical gear to handle the current situation. Make sure responding units and yourself set up the best possible perimeter. Once some backup has arrived attempt to engage the suspects inside.

    • D.

      Notify dispatch the situation is now code 3 and that EMS should be placed on standby. Relay as much information about the suspects as you can including the make/model of the vehicle you saw them driving. Call in ASU immediately for the code 3 situation so that you have eyes in the sky. Attempt to distract the suspects inside by whatever means available until backup arrives. Work together to engage the suspects and take out the threat.

    Correct Answer
    C. Quickly notify dispatch of shots fired and re-prioritize the call as a code 3 with a full zone response as well as placing EMS on standby. Inform dispatch of the make/model of the suspect vehicle, include as much information about the suspects themselves and the current situation as possible. Make sure you have adequate tactical gear to handle the current situation. Make sure responding units and yourself set up the best possible perimeter. Once some backup has arrived attempt to engage the suspects inside.
    Explanation
    First off, dispatch needs to be immediately notified that the situation has changed and is no longer a code 1 call. Due to the nature of the emergency a full zone response is warranted but not mandatory. (If you have questions about zoning ask.) EMS should always be placed on standby in situations like this. You do not, however, want EMS to respond code 3 to a situation where shots are still being fired. That is why they are placed on standby in an area that is safely away from the gun fire but while remaining as close as possible as to assist anyone injured once the situation is contained.

    It is very important to relay information about the vehicle the suspects were driving in the event they attempt escape. This way, if they do attempt escape the description of their vehicle has already been broadcast and a BOLO can be issued right away if necessary. You also want to include as much information about the suspects as possible. Are they white, black, hispanic, etc? What are they wearing? Are they armed (in this case they are), if yes, what type of weapons are in their possession?

    Double and triple check to make sure you are prepared for the situation at hand. Officer safety is paramount. If you don't have the proper gear to engage the suspects you may have to find alternatives to your normal method of approach in dealing with the matter at hand. If the suspects have pistols then you should be ok to use pistols in response. But if they are carrying SMGs or assault rifles, you will want to beef up your response to their hardware.

    Make sure units responding are prepared to setup a perimeter as soon as they arrive on scene. You want all avenues of escape covered. Wait until an adequate amount of backup has arrived, use your own discretion. Now you must engage the suspects according to their current behavior and actions. This includes whether shots are still being fired or not. If anyone has been taken hostage the situation has dramatically changed, for the worst. If the situation turns into a hostage situation you are to fall back, regroup, maintain your perimeter and bolster it as necessary. Bring in the SWAT teams and a negotiator to make contact with the suspects. SWAT will get the sniper teams setup. Then, go from there.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because cops are allowed to lie in certain circumstances.

  • 11. 

    When I pull someone over and they tell me that they left their drivers license at home but swear that they have one I should be understanding and take their word for it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not advisable to simply take someone's word for having a driver's license if they don't have it with them. As a law enforcement officer, it is important to verify the person's identity and ensure they are legally allowed to drive. This can be done by asking for alternative forms of identification or running a background check. Trusting someone's word without proper verification could compromise public safety and the enforcement of traffic laws.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Efficient use of radio communication is crucial for police officers as it allows them to quickly and effectively communicate with each other and coordinate their actions. This is essential for maintaining public safety, responding to emergencies, and apprehending suspects. By using radio communication efficiently, officers can relay important information, request backup, and receive instructions in real-time, enabling them to make informed decisions and respond promptly to situations. Therefore, the statement that efficient use of radio communication is extremely important in the day to day policing of officers is true.

    Explanation
    Placing one's hand on the back of the vehicle during a traffic stop ensures that their fingers and/or handprint is left on the vehicle. This serves as evidence that the officer was in the vicinity of the vehicle in case something bad happens during the traffic stop and the vehicle is recovered. This can be used by CSI to prove in court that the officer had contact with the vehicle, establishing their presence and involvement in the situation.

This step is crucial to ensure that the suspect is aware of their rights and can make an informed decision about whether or not to speak to the police.
