When can a Civilian take a police car?
A civilian must observe an officer in the act of a role play situation. This means the officer must be online and not disconnected. The officer must make an mistake not to lock their car for the vehicle to be taken. During certain instances in complex role play a cop may be robbed of their police vehicle but serious role play must commence or else it would be considered fail role play. It is also against server rules to steal emergency vehicles outside of any police station.
What can be done with a stolen police vehicle?
Stolen police vehicles cannot be altered in anyway, they are to remain in the condition you got it in, and any damage you incur can’t be repaired, because no reasonable mechanic will realistically fix it for you. Thus no repairs, no modifications, no changes to the vehicle other then its default condition.
Abandoned Police Vehicle.
If the police vehicle is abandoned or does not have a cop identifier it will be deleted by the compliance department or other staff. These vehicles can not be stolen since there is not an active RP scene.
Gear from the police car?
If the police car is stolen you may only use the defaulted stolen weapon in the car whether that be a pump shotgun or rifle. Anything further or made up is not acceptable.
If I steal the car can I wear a police uniform, or can I just use the uniform for any reason?
No, you cannot dress up as cop or pretend to play a cop. If police gear is stolen, you may only use the gun and vehicle not the uniform. This also applies to pretending to be a cop.
It is forbidden for players to bait officers. If an officer is busy with a crime scene such as a bank robbery or a murder or they are engaged in role play, be sure to let them finish.
Stop in the middle of the road just to do burnouts, honk your horn, or do other things that would be considered annoying while an officer is on a traffic stop or speaking with another player.
Use a pistol to take down larger vehicles such as the helicopters and armored SWAT vehicles.
Taze a player through any rolled-up window/windshield/back window of a vehicle or through windows of a building this is not realistic.
Steal an NPC public safety vehicle.
Abuse a game mechanic in front of a cop.
Intentionally interfere with normal role play to cause trouble for the police. This would include officers dealing with a bank robbery, pursuit, or other incidents and players continue to get in the way or cause issues just so that they can get attention from the police.
Intentionally hit, ram, shoot, or otherwise act inappropriately toward police personnel without engaging in proper role play.
The crowding at the scene of a robbery will be considered cop-baiting and players who turn up to a after robbery is in progress and cause problems for officers will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.
Priority Cooldown (3.12)
Priority cooldown is a timer that is either displayed above the Hud in the game or announced by a staff member in server chat. When this cooldown is in effect players must not engage in any form of priority activity for the allotted time.

Jail Rules (3.13)

When flying an aircraft on FLE remember the following rules apply.
Do Not, fly extremely low in the city that it is considered a violation of realistic flight laws unless serious role play is underway to support the reason.
Do Not, take off/Land an aircraft on to public streets without a realistic reason during a roleplay to justify the situation anything else will be considered fail role play.
Do Not, intentionally crash aircraft into buildings.
Do Not, Land civilian helicopter on a restricted site (i.e. Hospital or Police Station).
Do Not, do flight stunts near populated areas
Bank and Business Robbery Rules (3.4)
If players plan on doing a heist or bank heist, which includes multiple robbers, then there must be adequate police staff online (At least 3 police units). It is the player's responsibility to ask if it is ok to do a heist upon logging into the server. Players who plan to commit an organized robbery will not be put in situations where officers wait for a robbery to occur without a scripted reason (i.e. a role play investigating serial robbers).
Instantly start a robbery upon server reset.
Try to force a mass robbery incident without enough public safety staffing to amount of a proper role play scene.
New Life Rule & DOA (3.5)
No player shall decide if another is dead. It will be the responsibility of the owned player to decide their own fate. Should a player be able to receive medical help and be revived then the player shall live from the encounter and remember everything about the encounter.
Should a player not be able to receive medical help but does choose to respawn then they shall not remember the event that lead to them respawning. Every encounter must still have adequate roleplay and not break any of the other server rules.

This is against server rules and breaking said rule will cause you to be immediately removed from our staff team and possibly removed from the community all together for server security. The reason this exists is for obvious reasons. We only seek Loyal Staff Members.
Civilians who are in other communities may only be granted to titles of Civilian and First Level department member. All other positions in the community are reserved for FLE loyal members. Members who are part of a community made to damage fle will be completely removed from FLE servers if the owner of the account fails to notify fle staff of the existence of that server.
Divisional Leadership Policy (4.5)
Leadership is defined any divisional department head, any moderator or admin, any senior support member. Leadership also includes all directors and owners.
Leaders will not discuss internal goings on behind the scenes with anyone from outside of the team. This includes any future updates or decisions made by the team, this will result in removal from the leadership team and may lead to a community ban. (Please note, this does not apply to the developers and other content creators, as they may need to request something from a member).
All rules apply to all leadership, apart from in extreme circumstances where an override is needed.
Divisional Loyalty Rule (4.55)
Any member who choices to take part in a divisional leadership role must commit to the division they are a leader in. This means for example if you are an Admin you can only be in a leadership position in the Compliance Division. The leader may though take a role in the lowest level in both other divisions thus a Moderator could be an entry level police officer and a part-time developer. The only time this cannot work is a department head can not hold a position in the compliance division otherwise the rule works as stated. The point of this rule to have members pick a division to focus on full time.
Seniority Rule (4.6)
The seniority rule is in effect when dealing with promotions or ties for promotion. This rule essentially means that the member who has been a part of the community longer is given priority for the promotion. This rule does not apply to Staff Promotions.
Grandfathered Member Rule (4.65)
This rule is in effect for future changes that would require members to complete later requirements to keep roles and positions. This rule essentially grandfathers the members, so these requirements are not required for long time members in positions.
Investigation Policy (4.7)
This policy is in place to define investigations. Any time a member of the community is under investigation a record will be kept of the complaint. A compliance team member will then compile all evidence and create a record on the forums of the rule violation and the outcome. Investigation outcomes are classified as the following.
Not Sustained - There is insufficient evidence to confirm or refute the complaint and push player
Sustained - The allegation/complaint is true. The action of the player was inconsistent with the rules of FLE and action is taken (please explain penalty).
Exonerated - The allegation is true; however the action of the player was justified and/or consistent with a reasonable understanding of FLE rules.
Unfounded - The allegation is either false or there is no credible evidence to support action the investigation is just documented until further information is gathered.
