City Laws

Assault

3+ hits with a fist/item (not weapon) is assault. 1+ hits with a weapon/an item that has a weapon enchant is also assault. Bail $250
If you assault a police officer, an additional $250 will be added.
NOTE: Eggs, snowballs and fishing rod use is not jail-able unless the person is using them a lot to annoy other players! You must actually be combat tagged by the snowballs, or fishing rods to be counted as assault (Assault charge).

Murder
The bail price for murder depends on the amount of murders- check this with /incidents [player]. Bail: $1,000 1-10 players, $2,000 10+ players. If someone got murdered because he/she tried to escape combat, you may NOT jail the murderer. (It means that the player disconnected while being in combat and died because of that). If a police officer is murdered, add $500 to the bail price.


Friendly fights
A person has to state that it is friendly, and with who they are fighting with, before a murder takes place if it is friendly pvp, otherwise cops have a right to jail the player who murdered.
Note: If a message appears in chat that says “blank has burned to death” and it was the result of a fight, you can only jail for murder if /incidents confirms the death was caused by the player. If someone got murdered because he/she tried to escape combat, you may NOT jail the murderer. (It means that the player disconnected while being in combat and died because of that).

Self Defense
If a player is assaulted and they respond by hitting the player with a weapon the player who defended themselves will not be jailed BUT a police officer must witness the fight or both players will be jailed. The victim will not be punished if he/she kills the offender.

Trespassing
You must ask whoever is trespassing to leave the property once before jailing. This is the only time you can teleport to a player, because you are asking them to leave and giving them an actual chance. If the trespasser stands on the edge or close to the plot and continues to go onto the plot when you leave, bothers the player, you can jail for continuous trespassing. Bail - $750. Continuous trespassing should be reported to staff.

Gun Licenses
Gun licenses are now universal and can be bought from Sr. Police officers, the Chief of Police, and the Minister of Security. Open carry licenses - $10,000

Gun license format

Title of book “[Playername’s] License
“I, [cop name], give [playername] permission to open-carry firearms in the city.”

Selling guns
Guns and ammo can be bought from Sr. Police Officers, the Chief of Police, and Minister of Security. The tax on all guns and ammo will be a 10% increase. To work it out, here is an example: Assault rifles regular price is $10,000, you then do 10,000 x 1.1 = $11,000. $11,000 is the new price with added tax that the player pays for.

Illegal Guns
If someone is found using a gun without an open-carry license, ask for the gun, or ask them to purchase a license. If they don't, jail them. Bail - $4,000. *Changed to set bail*

Bringing guns into /warp school
You are not allowed to bring any type of guns (including gauss) into the school. Bail - $500

Possession of drugs
The possession of any materials to make drugs or having the final product is illegal.
Bail - $500 1-10 drugs, $1,000 10+ drugs

Harvesting drugs (growing them) will result in a jail. Search warrants come into play here Bail - $2,500

Bank Robbery
Attempting to rob the bank or being in the bank maze is a crime. Players must have on at least one piece of armor if they are invisible. Bail - $1,000

20 Minute Mark
20 minutes after the crime happened you are NOT allowed to catch the player anymore and you have to let him go. It’s fine if it goes a few minutes over.

Teamwork
Teamwork is an essential part of the McCities police force, and it’s recommended that you help out your fellow officers whenever possible. *Abolished 1-1 rule*

Bail format
(player) jailed for (crime), bail (bail).
Used to tell players in chat their bail after they got jailed.

Unfair Advantages
Unfair Advantages- Police can use an unfair advantage against a player who is also using an unfair advantage. The police officer will decide what advantage they want to use. The item must be equal (slimefun vs slimefun) but police can also use an unfair advantage when players are using things like frost boots, elytras, or vehicles. If you are actively pursuing someone who has an unfair advantage, and you jail them, but another player who doesn’t have on an advantage is attacking you, you don’t have to remove the advantage.

Advantages police can use:
Slime leggings or boots against slime leggings or against weapons like guns and bows that fire
Magic sugar (under 25)
Multi tools against bows or guns and slimefun

Advantages police cannot use:
Frost boots
Their own armor

McCities Police have the right to destroy vehicles if you are using them to break the law.

Police Rules & Restrictions
  • The following actions will result in points added, warnings, or demotion:
  • Do not Tp jail! Tp jailing is when you teleport to a player near the criminal, and jail them (if the crime happened after you Tp'ed you can jail).
  • Do not Tp to someone and set a home there and use that home to jail people!
  • DO NOT jail anyone in wild! The wild world (not Cayman wild or Newcity wild) has no laws at all!
  • You cannot believe people if they just tell you "this guy has assaulted me" and you did not see it.
  • Do not sell police armour/ batons
  • Jailing people without purpose.
  • Do not abuse /invsee.
  • Fighting with players will not be tolerated. A little back and forth criminal and police talk is fine
  • False Jails (This does not mean mistakes, so like if someone runs in front of you and you by accident jail, that’s not counted as a false jail. This depends on the circumstance. Mistakes do happen, but if you make a mistake, I expect you to improve.
  • Fighting with players will not be tolerated. A little back and forth criminal and police talk is fine [Warning- 2 points]
  • No murdering/assaulting the poor security guard. The security guard doesn't have the ability to attack police anymore.
  • Just because an officer is reported, it doesn’t mean they will receive warning points. Some reports I’ve gotten, I investigated, and then found that the screenshots and report provided were taken out of context, and the player then admitted they set the cop up.
  • Cops may not use /back after being murdered.
Reporting police: The police have a point system to punish officers if they do something wrong. All player reports must include evidence of some kind (screenshots, videos, etc). Any general reports or accusations won’t be accepted without evidence. Constantly reporting, harassing, or bothering players or police with no evidence will be considered harassment (see rules).

Applying

Requirements:
Citizen rank+ (view this by doing /ranks in game
Follows the rules here
No history of toxic behavior
Getting banned for breaking any of the general server rules results in an instant demotion from your rank.



Reapplying:
If you do not get a response on your application within a week you are denied. You can apply once a week. If you reapply in less than a week, your application will be denied along with any other applications you send in.
If you decide to spam, question or ask about your application then you have a decreased chance of being accepted, the Minister will get back to you only if accepted. I look at your police application I don't need to be reminded.


If you feel something should be added to this, please feel free to message me on the website or in game about it!

Thank you and good luck applying!
