Hello, and welcome to the Alaska State Troopers Clan for GTA 4 PC, also known as AST. AST is a police roleplaying clan for PC that uses mods in their game such as LCPDFR and Braveheart's Policing Scripts. These script mods produce realistic calls for us to respond to. We have our own vehicle pack with real Alaska State Trooper vehicle models & skins. AST strives to be as realistic as possible and conform to the procedures of the real Alaska State Troopers. We use their set of 10-Codes as well as their dispatching & radio procedures.
If you're interested in joining the AST Clan, simply go to the Trooper Application at http://www.gta-ast.enjin.com/apps and fill it out. Then, click the Become A Trooper button to begin your quest on joining AST. Before applying we want you to know that it isn't an easy road to becoming a Trooper in our clan. To have realistic & enjoyable patrols, we do not allow just anyone in our clan. Your application can get you a spot in one of 4 divisions: State Troopers, Highway Patrol, Alaska Bureau of Investigation, Mat-Com, Or the FDLC Division. Mat-Com is mainly for people who don't have the game and still want to be part of the action. But, even if you do have the game you can still feel free to join Mat-Com. Mat-com controls the radio and dispatch units around the city. The State Troopers division spends most of their time responding to calls that come in over the radio on LCPDFR, Braveheart's, or calls that Dispatch make for them. Highway Patrol spends most of their time making traffic stops and keeping the roads safe while also responding to officer's calls for backup. Alaska Bureau of Investigation, or ABI, is essentially a detective division that investigates mysteries discovered by themselves or other units (i.e. Drug Deals, Homicides, Suspicious Streaks of Stabbings, Car Crashes, etc.). ABI also performs undercover operations like Bait Car. FDLC are the medics and the fire-fighters who respond to calls with injured people and a fire, Becoming a Medic or Fire-fighter gives you the ability to use the Ambulance and Fire Truck. After submitting your application, one of two things will happen. Either an Administrator will review it an deem that it doesn't meet the requirements meaning that it will be denied on the spot, or a Clan Public Relations Officer will post a comment requesting to set up an interview with you if it indeed meets all of the Application Requirements. They will also provide you with our Public Relations Teamspeak 3 Server IP which is where the interview. Upon getting on Teamspeak, you'll be interviewed by the Public Relations Officer or an Administrator. If your interview goes well, we'll go back and accept your Application on the website and move forward by explaining to you stuff about how the clan operates and also helping you install our clan pack & required mods. The Clan's Public Relations Officer will then give you the Official Clan Teamspeak 3 Server IP At the time of you passing your interview, you'll be given the tags of the division you applied to as well as your rank, Class C Cadet (Recruit). As a Cadet you are allowed to join in on events as a ride-along as long as you have everything installed. Your main job as a Cadet is to keep an eye on the Upcoming DPSTA's forum on the website. DPSTA stands for Department of Public Safety Training Academy, and it is the training that Cadets must go through. AST has been known to have one of the most difficult training sessions out there. At any point in training if it takes you too many tries to do something or you don't complete something in a certain amount of time, you could fail. If this happens your training is immediately stopped, we tell you what you did not successfully complete, and you must wait at least 3 days until the next DPSTA to try training again. It is a rigorous training which is why during your interview, we give you some tips and links to things that you should review such as 10-Codes. We have 3 parts to our DPSTA, Part 1 (Out of Game), Part 2 (In-Game), and Part 3 (Evaluation). If you do successfully pass all 3 parts of training then you'd become a Probationary Trooper. This means that you can join in on patrols/events on your own, but you'll be under close supervision. After we see you apply what you've learned in training well enough to a few patrols, you will become a Trooper. This is the most basic rank in the clan which you'll spend most time at. It gives you normal privileges & limitations such as being able to join Special Divisions. The ranks after Trooper but before supervisor ranks are Corporal and Sergeant. If you do not enjoy the division you’re are in then you can fill out and division transfer form which will be reviewed and either accepted or denied.
As mentioned before, upon joining AST you must join one of the 5 base divisions (State Troopers, Highway Patrol, ABI, Dispatch or FDLC), but you can also begin joining Specialized Divisions (Part-Time Divisions) once you reach the rank of Trooper. Our In-Game Specialized Divisions consists of the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), and Alaska Wildlife Troopers (AWT), while our out of game Special Divisions are the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) and Public Relations (PR). SERT is basically like most people would know as a SWAT Team that handles high-risk situations usually involving weapons. As SERT you will have the ability to use Tahoe, Helicopter and Bearcat. Becoming a Wildlife Trooper gives you the ability to use the AST Police Boat, Helicopter, F350, and F150. AWT patrols on map mods such as Countryside or Clockwork. Internal Affairs Unit will deal with problems that they receive through the form. Finally Public Relations deal with Applications, Interviews and dealing with other clans. We also offer 2 "units" which are the K9 Team and the Traffic Enforcement Unit.
Chain of Command
Following Chain of Command is one thing that AST takes very seriously. The top of the Chain is Administration. Administration is made of 3 Commissioners and 2 Deputy Commissioners. Their main job is to make the rules that all members must follow. Next in the Chain would be Staff. Staff is made up of the 2 Mat-com Directors, 2 Deputy Mat-com Directors, 3 Colonels (Col), 3 Majors(Maj), 3 Captains (Cpt.), 3 Lieutenants (Lt). Their job is to enforce the rules and make sure everything order by Administration is carried out. Members are to treat each other with respect, but treat Staff & Administration with even more respect. That is one of the realistic factors of AST's Chain of Command.
