MPD Command

The Malton Police Department has a structured chain of command. This hierarchical organization is designed for efficiency and clarity. Department personnel are spread out throughout the city, and our greatest strength is our organizational abilities and dedication to helping each other, as well as the citizens of Malton! As such, although all department personnel are expect to work within the chain of command and follow the guidelines and policies put forth by their superiors, they are also strongly encouraged to communicate and work with each other to meet local needs to the best of their abilities. Cops are also encouraged to communicate and work with any local organizations whose goals are congruent with department policy - saving the lives of survivors and protecting property, particularly those resources needed for survival.

Department Organization

The city of Malton is divided up in a grid-work pattern of suburbs, organized into four quadrants or divisions. The Commissioner is in charge of all operations, and all the Police Stations in a division fall under the command of a Superintendent. Each Superintendent designates 5 regions within their division, each consisting of 5 suburbs. Each regions duties are coordinated by a Chief Inspector, with Inspectors in charge of individual suburbs. Inspectors may assign Sergeants and Detectives for their suburb as they deem needed. In summary, the chain of command is:

MPDShRank8.png Police Commissioner
MPDShRank7.png Deputy Commissioner
MPDShRank6.png Superintendent
MPDShRank5.png Chief Inspector
MPDShRank4.png Inspector
MPDShRank3.png Sergeant
MPDShRank1.png Constable
MPDShRank0.png Cadet

The Commissioner may appoint a Deputy Commissioner at their discretion, whose rank would be roughly equivalent to Superintendent. The DC would not be responsible for a particular division, however, but instead would pinch hit for Superintendents as needed and otherwise be dispatched to assist as the Commissioner directs, or stand in for the Commissioner if needed.

Merits and Ribbons

The Department of Emergency Management has a series of DEM Merits and Ribbons it issues to members who display mastery over key skills. The ribbons can be claimed by any member with the profficiency of the skills entailed. Summary of these ribbons and the means to claim them can be found on the DEM Merits and Ribbons page.

Active Areas


In suburbs where there are active MPD personnel and at least one officer, that suburbs wiki page should be updated to note that the MPD is an active group there. Add this code to the 'Active Groups' part of the suburb description template:

 [[Image:Mpd.gif|25px]] [[Malton Police Department]]<br />

Police Departments

Police Departments that are actively manned by MPD personnel should have such indicated on that Stations wiki page. If the page does not exist you should create it. Here is an example for a Police Department used as a suburbs MPD 'HQ', which just needs to be edited with the correct names:

'''Police Department Name''' is the [[Malton Police Department]] headquarters for [[Suburb Name]], 
and primary base of operations for [[MPD Command#<which division?>_Division|District NW-4]]. All
[[Civilian#Cop|Cops]] are requested to report in to [[MPD Command]] [ here] as soon as possible.
Please '''do not''' over barricade this building! It should be maintained as an accessible safe
house and [[free running]] [[entryway]], and as such the [[barricades]] should be maintained at
Very Strongly (VS+2). See the [[Uniform Barricading Policy]] for more details.

[[Category:Police Departments]]

The above is just a basic template and needs to be edited as appropriate for the specific Police Department. If you create the page you should also find it's coordinates referenced in the Police Departments category, click on the location (should be red if the page didn't exist) and create a redirect to the Stations wiki page (with the name as the title) by adding:

#redirect [[Department Name]]

As the only text for the page. If the coordinate page already exists, than edit it in an appropriate and polite way to indicate the MPD's presence in and use of the station.

Missing Personnel and Field Promotion

  1. Due to the nature of the outbreak, it is likely that there will be occasions when an opening in the command structure occurs due to personnel being isolated, or infected. This guideline addresses that circumstance.
    1. If an officer does not report in for over 72 hours, the first personnel to notice the loss of contact should activate an all points look out for the missing personnel.
    2. If the missing person does not report in, and is not located in 48 hours after the look out alert, they will be assumed infected, dead, or undead. The procedure for a known casualty will apply.
  2. If an officer is know to be infected, dead, or undead, the duties of his command immediately pass to the highest ranking subordinate officer.
    1. An officer Superior to the missing officer may choose to make this a temporary assignment or permanent.
    2. An all points alert will be broadcast. Any information on the missing persons last known whereabouts will be included.
      1. If the person is found and infected, dead or undead, appropriate treatmeant will be given as outlined under Firstaid and Revivification Guidelines.
      2. When an missing officer is found, and/or revived, they may, at their discretion,reclaim their previous rank and title, if they still hold greater qualifications than the person acting in the position.
      3. If the acting officer now has more qualifications than the revived officer, the acting officer has the option to step down, but may only be asked to do so by a superior officer.
    3. If the person is found and not infected, dead or undead, their status will be broadcast.
      1. Failure to monitor communications, failure to report in, and creating an unnecessary alert are all detrimental to the MPD's objectives, and a member who is found missing without cause may be subject to demotion, at the discretion of their superior officers.

Tactical Operations - Suburbs

  1. MPD personnel should coordinate operations in an area with other DEM branches present in that suburb.
  2. Resource buildings, particularly Police Departments of course, should be actively maintained and defended. See the Uniform Barricading Policy for general guidelines.
    1. Barricades should be maintained at VS+2, unless otherwise specified by the local barricade plan or as a tactical decision decided on in the forums.
    2. Survivors should be encouraged not to sleep in resource buildings. This is particularly true of those who possess the free running skill. Explain to them it is not safe and their well-being can not be guaranteed. Let them know of nearby alternate VS+2 designated structures. A dispersed population is less vulnerable to concentrated incursions by organized zombie hordes.
    3. Do not risk undeath on hopeless causes! If there are more zombies on a building than available personnel can actively defend, warn the occupants that the building is to be abandoned and (re)barricade one last time. After that, concentrate on bolstering barricades on nearby buildings not under attack to allow for a safe retreat. Make sure there are enough entryway buildings for non-free running survivors to fall back to.
  3. Divide labor effectively for long-term growth.
    1. Unless barricading is an immediate emergency, lower-level personnel should focus on thinning the zeds, healing and revivification (and thereby earning XP!).
  4. If a suburb has more than 2-3 DEM personnel, command officers should coordinate skills training of lower level members so everyone isn't getting the same skill at the same time.
    1. Separate skill trees, such as combat skills and body-building; construction and tagging; NT training; first aid and diagnosis; etc should be spread out among personnel, so tasks can be delegated more effectively.
    2. All Cops should have Free Running by 3rd level, and should focus primarily on training until 3rd or 4th.
