    Police currently doesn't have much of a merit, and it's one of those things we want to bring back.

    One idea that has been brought up is that Police can teleport within 150 block radius of the player, leave a vote on if you think this should be a thing or leave a reply if you have any better ideas.


    Here's the process for those who don't understand:

    Police executes a command > Police is teleported 100 ~ 150 blocks away from the player > Player gets a warning that says "You hear the police siren" (or something like that) > The chase begins from there

    The whole reason for the idea was that it can be hard and boring on police to chase after someone with the current conditions. Also, it's boring for roleplay if police take like 30 minutes to get to where you are.

    Something like that, but it would put them within a radius, not directly with the player.

    Maybe a rep reset for those players who have virtually no chance of regaining rep? :>

    Would be great! Thing is, couldn't this be abused in some way to get into player's houses? Also, the player the police tp to should get a message like 'the police are chasing you, run!'

    One point with this, if it takes 30 minutes, you can't even arrest the person xD
    Otherwise this'd be really useful bc players can easily tp away to places, but there should be a short cooldown so you can't just spam it xD

    I love the idea but i think that the police might abuse it by for example tp'ing in range of Nibble, then nibble runs away then the officer does it again 5 min later. If there is a limit of how many times they can use it on a specific player then yes this idea is great!

    There will be a cooldown on the command & the player being chased will get a message and will be able to report the police if they notice the police teleporting to them for no reason, etc

    I don't see how this will make everything easier.. When you get the message that a cop is going after you, the criminal will simply /as tp to his other regions. Nice cooldown on the command makes that you cannot go there. Surprising criminals is the best way to catch them, getting a message that they're after you will make it easier for them to escape and harder for the cops. If you're smart cop you can get everywhere within 5 minutes.

    The problem is that, for newer cops, they may not know coords for places well, NewCity and Cayman. That and some places are pretty difficult to get to, such as islands and all.

    You can disable /as tp for the criminals when they're getting chased, but if you do that you always forget one of the other ways to teleport away. If it takes the cop ages to catch the criminal or the cop has to afk, the criminal can't go on with his life. Criminals can also simply leave the server when they get that message. If you punish them when they leave, makes that when they really have to go away they're stuck on here. I don't know if its just me, but I hate games if you cannot leave whenever you want.
    Getting to islands isnt that hard either, just know how ;)

    Fvhn is right on this id have to agree. I would have a teleport location near every island, once I was talking with my friend over on my island and fvhn comes swooping in, fvhn has like 3 boats in the sea so she knows the locations and has like memorized the city or something, but tbh this just makes it easier for the criminals.

    Then it wasn't smart of him to keep on following, that's a waste of time. He could've better left and come back later
