Tim

Bradford

N/A

Section 3 - WHY DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A SERGEANT 

3.1) What could you bring to your High Command Team?

I could bring many positive traits and qualities to the SAPF high command team. The first quality I would be able to bring to the High Command team is a positive and enthusiastic attitude toward policing. I understand I will have more responsibilities as a member of the SAPF High Command team and will look forward to bringing my positive attitude into work everyday and help shape and develop the lower ranking officers. The next quality I would be able to bring to the SAPF High Command team is my high level of organization. Talking to some sergeants and above before submitting this application, I have learned that there will be more of a workload and more paperwork which I look forward to learning how to do to not only demonstrate my high level of organization but also become a better Law Enforcement officer. The final quality I would like to add that I believe would benefit the High Command team is my willingness to help others. As a sergeant, I understand that there will be many occasions where I am in a position to help not only the community but other officers in the department as well. I would be able to represent the lower ranks in the SAPF and properly bring up any issues they have with the rest of the High Command team to ensure a good level of morale within the police force. Overall, I would be a great asset to the department's High Command team.

3.2) How have you improved/mentored an officers ability?

Over the time that I have spent within the department I have been privileged enough to be trusted with training new recruits as well as lower ranking officers that needed advice. The most recent officer that I have helped train was C-04 Jeb Smith. I teach new officers to enforce the spirit of the law and not the letter of the law. This means that I teach them to build good community relations that not only benefit them for future situations but also make the department as a whole have a better image. I also teach them how to investigate the little things and teach them about situational awareness. Many times whilst on General Duties I have seen new officers overlook something small that has led to something big which allows me to take the initiative to teach them and help them grow as law enforcement officers. I have also helped train PC-15 Anika Thorton and helping her through on a day to day basis to grow her abilities as a law enforcement officer. I have also put my hand up to help recruits in the academy and assist Training Command when I can, as well as throw my hand up to help Sergeant Johnathan with PolAir training.

3.3) Why should you be put into the High Command Team?

I should be a part of the SAPF High Command team for many reasons. High Command would suit me because I am always willing to step up and take initiative when I see that there is a problem. I am a reasonable person and am able to deal with issues that may arrive either internally or externally regarding the department and it's officers. I am a good representative for many general duty officers and will bring up ideas they forward to me that could potentially help the department run smoother as a whole. I am also a calm person within stressful situations and know how to use tact to de-escalate any situation that may arise. I look over the welfare of every single officer both higher and lower than me and am willing to help them out with whatever is needed. Finally, I am a great team player and will be willing to put in the time and effort to help those in need.

3.4) Select 5 sections out of the Standard operating procedure and explain what they mean to you.

Section 1: Officer Conduct - This is the most important section to me because how every officer handles themselves reflects upon the entire department. As a supervising officer to the lower ranking constables if I was to be promoted I would conduct equipment inspections to make sure officers are kept up to a high standard of professionalism and excellence. 

Section 2: General Duties Procedures - This section is very important because it breaks down due process when arresting someone. Failure to do this could result in many different actions that may reflect poorly on the department as a whole. When high risk calls are active and TAC is primary general duties officers should be assisting in any way possible. What I do in situations like that is make sure there is a secure perimeter so TAC does not get flanked or ambushed and prevents any members of the public from entering a hostile situation.

Section 3: Vehicle Procedures - I typically find myself enforcing the maximum amount of 4 vehicles per pursuit to keep pursuits safe for officers and civilians alike. Due to it being a public safety hazard having that many vehicles traveling at high rates of speed I have personally broken off pursuits to allow other units that are more capable to maintain the pursuits stay on  the target vehicle. Public safety is always number one and pursuits are one of the most dangerous scenarios officers could bring civilians into.

Section 4: Special Procedures - As an officer who has worked in Operation Barracuda this section has helped me understand the purpose of specialized divisions such as TAC and CIB. I am personally interested in going into CIB and feel like I have gained unique skills that has helped me not only become a better officer but also teach others how to look more in depth in certain scenarios. Understanding this section has helped me understand how I was able to go undercover and understand SOPs regarding this type of policing. 

Section 5: High Command Procedures -  As a potential High Command member I have thoroughly read through Section 5 and understand what duties will be required to fulfill . When a high command level isn't present and I am handling an issue I will keep Section 5 in mind so I can handle it accordingly and know what High Command will need to further assist in the matter.

Section 4 - PLEASE ANSWER THE BELOW QUESTIONS TO YOUR BEST ABILITY

4.1) From Section 1 Officer Conduct, what are the three administrative duties that an officer on admin leave can accomplish?

There are three administrative duties an officer on admin leave can accomplish according to Section 1.5A-3, "The officer must handle all processing of offenders, lobby enquiries, and perform dispatch duties if requested."

4.2) From Section 3 Vehicle Procedures what must happen when shots are fired in a vehicle pursuit and when can tactical contact be made when to a civilian?

If shots are fired from a vehicle according to Section 3.2A, "If the vehicle pursuit has shots fired, TAC may take priority."
Tactical contact can be made when the requirements are met according to Section 3.2E, "Vehicle tyres may be shot out by Advanced Weapons trained units if the vehicle has fired shots or driven in a way to deliberately injure," or if the pursuit has lasted longer than 4 minutes and a pit is authorized by either Highway Patrol or High Command according to Section 3.2F, " Highway Patrol may approve a pit maneuver if the pursuit has continued for longer than 4 minutes. If there is no Highway Patrol on duty, High Command may approve or deny the request."

4.3) From Section 5 High Command Procedures, when may you send an officer in your command off duty?

1) The officer in question has committed an act of misconduct.

2) That act of misconduct is not in question or under investigation.

3) That act of misconduct does not meet the requirements of serious misconduct

You must immediately inform the respective branch PSO as soon as practical.

4.4) From the 2018 Crimes and Corruptions Act, what are the three points that state that an individual has committed an offence of bribery?

As derived from the 2018 Crimes and Corruptions Act, Division I Financial Frauds, Section 3: Bribery, Sub-Section A:
"A person commits an offence of bribery if the person:

1) Provides a benefit to another person; or
2) Causes a benefit to be provided
3) Offers to provide, or promises to provide, a benefit to another person; and
The person does so to influence the other person to carry out a favor."

4.5) How many factors need to be met for reasonable grounds and how many points do you need to prosecute someone for their crimes?

If either of the following factors are met an officer has obtained reasonable grounds according to the Law Enforcement (Powers & Responsibilities) Act 2018 Division II Judicial Procedures Section 5A and Section 5B:

A) Reasonable grounds can be established if an officer of the SAPF or AFP personally witnesses an illegal activity being undertaken.

B) Alternatively, reasonable grounds may be established if two of the following factors are met:

  • Failure to produce identification;
  • Seen entering, being present or leaving the immediate area of an active crime scene;
  • Overhearing a conversation or receiving witness statements identifying individuals who are about to, or are committing, or have committed a crime;
  • Failure to provide a reasonable excuse to justify face concealment within one block of a bank, a government property or a crime scene;
  • Individuals entering or exiting restricted areas, these being:
  1. Bank Vaults
  2. Airside of all San Andreas Airfields
  3. Police Stations
  4. Fort Zancudo
  5. Prison

In order to prosecute someone for their crimes you must have 10 points of prosecution. The factors that lead to 10 points of prosecution are as listed:

Police Witnessing a Crime - 10 Points

Police Find Illegal items on Suspect - 10 Points

Witness Statements (Max 2) - 4 Points Per Statement

Physical Evidence (Max 2) - 3 Points Per Article of Evidence

Location - 3 Points

Section 5 - PLEASE ANSWER THE BELOW SCENARIOS TO YOUR BEST ABILITY

5.1) If a suspect requests a lawyer outline the steps that you would take, starting from the request up until the lawyer is privately talking with the suspect. Also, state the time length you would give your suspect to prepare his or her defense and to communicate with a lawyer in confidence:

If a suspect request a lawyer I would follow the following steps to ensure due process was seen through:

  1. Assist the suspect with contacting a lawyer and allow the lawyer a minimum of five minutes to arrive at the police station. 
  2. Check to make sure that the individual is a certified lawyer with the State of San Andreas as they should be able to produce a state issued ID.
  3. Request permission to search the lawyer for the suspect's and officer's safety as he will be entering a restricted area and escort them in.
  4. Inform the lawyer what crimes the individual in custody is suspected of and how the ten points of prosecution was reached.
  5. Allow the lawyer to discuss with their client in confidence for as long as they need however, I would check in with them every ten minutes to see if they need more time. 

5.2) If you see two general duties officers having a verbal disagreement in the car park how would you handle the situation?

I would first split both of the officers up in order to prevent the situation from escalating. I would then have a conversation one on one with each officer to get their individual sides of the story. I would then try to come to each of them with a peaceful solution while trying to stay unbiased and fair to both sides. If there was an officer blatantly in the wrong I would try to convey that they are in the wrong by using it as a learning experience rather than coming across rude. I would then make note of the argument and officers involved, as well as, possibly bring the issue to the rest of the High Command team if it was important enough to do so.

5.3) If an officers is wearing unauthorized armor or firearms;

a) how would you approach the situation

b) if proceeds not to follow set orders what would be your next step in this situation

a) I would inform the officer that the armor or firearms they have is currently unauthorized and as respectfully as possible, ask them to put it away. If I notice the officer doesn't put it away within two minutes of me asking him to I would then tell him directly to put the weapon or armor away.

b) I would then tell the officer a last chance to put the weapon or armor away immediately as its is a breach in SOPs Sections 1.1 and 2.7. If the officer fails to do so after the final warning I would then use Section 5.1 of SOPs to send them off-duty for breach of section 2.7 and 1.1 of SOPs. I would then notify the respective branch PSO and give them a written statement as to why I did what I did. I would remain calm the entire time and if need be request another supervisor to assist with the insubordinate officer. 

Section 6 - DECLARATION

6.1) I understand that by filing this application , it does not automatically guarantee a promotion.

Yes, I understand.

6.2) Filling out this application is in my own words, if I am found guilty of copying somebody else application I will automatically accept a 1 month wait period before I can re-apply again.
