10/02/2013 – IC Municipal Calendar – Sent by: Windie Melody
NC: Hello Everyone!
Every employee of the HPD, FDH and HGH are invited to participate in the next upcoming fund-raising event! We will be putting together a 2014 Calendar of Hathian’s sexiest. The Calendar will be set to display HPD, FDH and HGH employee’s at their finest. But don’t worry, its all about the tease and there will be no full nudity!
Spots in the Calendar are automatically reserved for the leads of each group. But don’t get discouraged, there are still plenty of other spaces for you to fill.
Participants will be selected one of two ways depending on the number. If we have numerous volunteers, we will try our best to do group poses, however! If group poses are unattainable due to schedules, or we have a lot of volunteers we will put out a vote to the public to see who they want to see in the calendar.
So How do I participate?
Submit a notecard with your Bio! (Name, Age, Your Job and what you do there, and a few things about yourself) With a Picture showing off your stuff! Remember No Nudity!
Well save the XXX Calendars for the Titty Twister and Valmont Productions 🙂
Submit your notecards to Bliour Michaels (Windie.Melody)
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

During this time, please make sure you proceed with caution while patrolling. Be mindful of high winds, high standing water, or possible structural damage. Anticipate power outages and make sure you have provisions to take care of yourself. The station is equipped with an emergency generator. However, only necessary functions will be powered (no coffee machine and most computers). We will have the minimum equipment needed to perform our duties. Weather Gear is being issued (NPC).

I have prepared a Guide for our Officers to use themselves and to pass out to all citizens. Take as many copies as you need to help make sure our citizens are prepared. The better they are prepared the easier our job is.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Hurricanes – BE READY!
A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone or severe tropical storm that forms in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunderstorms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near the earth’s surface.
All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast also experience heavy rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June to November, with the peak season from mid-August to late October. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15 and ends November 30.
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles inland. Hurricane can produce winds exceeding 155 miles per hour as well as tornadoes and mircrobursts. Additionally, hurricanes can create storm surges along the coast and cause extensive damage from heavy rainfall. Floods and flying debris from the excessive winds are often the deadly and destructive results of these weather events. Slow moving hurricanes traveling into mountainous regions tend to produce especially heavy rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or mud slides. Flash flooding can occur due to intense rainfall.
-BEFORE A HURRICANE-
1. Build an Emergency Kit (A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them. You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days. Additionally, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even a week, or longer. Your supplies kit should contain items to help you manage during these outages.)
2. Have a Communication Plan for Family and Friends
3. Know your surroundings.
4. Learn the elevation level of your property and whether the land is flood-prone. This will help you know how your property will be affected when storm surge or tidal flooding are forecasted.
5. Identify levees and dams in your area and determine whether they pose a hazard to you.
6. Learn community hurricane evacuation routes and how to find higher ground. Determine where you would go and how you would get there if you needed to evacuate.
7. Make plans to secure your property.
8. Cover all of your home’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.
9. Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will reduce roof damage.
10. Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed so they are more wind resistant.
Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
11. Reinforce your garage doors; if wind enters a garage it can cause dangerous and expensive structural damage.
12. Plan to bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.
13. Determine how and where to secure your boat.
14. Install a generator for emergencies.
15. If in a high-rise building, be prepared to take shelter on or below the 10th floor.
16. Consider building a safe room.
-DURING A HURRICANE-
If a hurricane is likely in your area, you should:
*Listen to the radio or TV for information.
*Secure your home, close storm shutters and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
*Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed.
*Turn off propane tanks
*Avoid using the phone, except for serious emergencies.
*Moor your boat if time permits.
*Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purpose such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other larger containers with water.
*find out how to keep food safe during and after and emergency.
You should evacuate under the following conditions:
If you are directed by local authorities to do so. Be sure to follow their instructions.
*If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure – such shelter are particularly hazardous during hurricane no matter how well fastened to the ground.
*If you live in a high-rise building – hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations.
*If you live on the coast, on a floodplain, near a river, or on an island waterway.
If you are unable to evacuate, go to your wind-safe room. If you do not have one, follow these guidelines:
*Stay indoors during the hurricane and away from windows and glass doors.
*Close all interior doors – secure and brace external doors.
*Keep curtains and blinds closed. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm – winds will pick up again.
*Take refuge in a small interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level.
*Lie on the floor under a table or another sturdy object.
BE PREPARED!! STAY SAFE!!!

10/4/2013 – IC: Rookies and Patrolling – Sent by: Windie Melody
Rookies are now able to patrol alone after they feel comfortable they are sufficiently able to process an arrest, write a report and write a citation. It is recommended they try to partner up with senior officers, but is not required. Rookies will be required to avoid all known gang zones until promoted to Officer I. Any Rookies found patrolling gang zones will face discipline.
Contact any supervisor if you have questions.

10/5/2013 – IC: Flooding Notice – Sent by: Windie Melody
Flooding has started to occur in areas, so continue to be careful while on patrol. Also, due to the jail cells being underground standing water has developed and the cell areas are starting to flood. Currently it is only at approximately 4-5 inches deep so prisoners can still be held there at this time. ((Make sure you let them know about the flood!))
10/5/2013 – IC: The Water is Rising – Sent by: Windie Melody
More areas are beginning to flood, so make sure you pay attention to emergency calls to areas where flooding is occurring. With the power out, the generators are working and on. Only the front desk computer will be powered along with the lights. ((nothing else is working)) The jail is up to about a foot deep now, but is still usable.
10/5/2013 – IC: Clarification – Sent by: Windie Melody
Yes, the Dispatch Center is still up and operational and able to receive 9-1-1 calls. They are part of the necessary power grid on the generator.

The following Internal Memo has been placed in every Officers Box for review within the Department. ((Please let me know if you have any questions ooc!))

From: Captain Bliour Michaels
RE: Moonshadow Investigations
CC: Angel Moonshadow, Private Investigator
After a recent review of current case loads, it has been determined that the Hathian Police Department will be hiring and establishing a retainer with the Moonshadow Investigation Agency.
Moonshadow investigations has a staff on hand that is able to help with surveillance, investigations, forensics (anything that involves DNA, bodily fluids, computer analysis, etc), and more. Their work is confidential and professional. It is well known that, even though they still accept contracts from private citizens, they will not investigate active and serving police officers. Due to this, it has been decided their agency will be a good fit to cooperate with ours.
Employees with Moonshadow Investigations are civilians so do not have the power to arrest, request warrants, file incident reports, or complete apb’s.
So what does this mean? Detectives, you are free to refer any cases you wish to this agency to help investigate. These can be cases you simply do not have the time to investigate yourself, or may need additional assistance on. Any cases however, that are referred to Moonshadow Investigations need to be noted in the Additional Notes section of the Incident report. After the cases are investigated, personnel with Moonshadow Investigations will provide a file with the requested information and it will be up to you at that point to file a Warrant for arrest on the suspect, if applicable. Patrol Officers, since they specialize in forensics you are able to send any lab work you need done to this agency from incidents you take that may need to be processed for evidence. Notate it in your report, however, if you do.
All case information and forensics should be forwarded directly to Angel Moonshadow ((angellynne Moonshadow)). She will then at that time determine if her Agency can accept the case or evidence, and assign it to who she sees fit within her agency to investigate.
I am strongly encouraging the use of this service, and cooperating with the Investigators. I have personally worked with Moonshadow in the past, and despite that she is no longer a member of the Hathian Police Department, her work is sound and can be utilized well to help with the apprehension of criminals and bringing resolution to the victims in these cases.
Also, do not forget, for the cases of deceased persons. You can contact Medical Examiners Takahiro Ugimachi from HGH or Teo Micqui to come to the scene to collect the body and evidence for processing.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

10-6-2013 – IC: Supplies – Sent by: Windie Melody
Due to the Tropical Storm, our shipment of supplies is being put off until the roads are apparently “safe” for the drivers. This means that our stock of pepper spray, vests, tear gas canisters, flash bangs, less then lethal ammo, 9mm, 40guage ammo and other various needed supplies will not be refilled until it arrives. We don’t have very much left in stock and are due to run out in the next day or so, so use what you have sparingly.
10-21-2013 – IC: Finally! – Sent by: Windie Melody
I have received notice the supply truck is scheduled to be here either Tuesday or Wednesday around 3pm (SLT).
((OOC Note: This is a planned RP with the Rejects, where they are going to attempt to hijack the truck and supplies. Any and all officers that would like to participate please be around those times. Have fun and let me know if you have any questions.))
10-26-2013 – IC: So Yea… – Sent by: Windie Melody

10-26-2013 – IC: Municipal Auction – Sent by: Windie Melody
Email To All HPD:
Hello everyone, I will be helping to coordinate another date auction this year, so the proceeds can help benefit the municipal departments of this city. Please see the attached, everyone is welcome to participate.
Captain Bliour Michaels.
With the hit of the last event in the same manner, HPD would like to announce the planning and undertaking of the 2nd Annual Municipal Date Auction. That’s right, Dust off your Sunday Best and sell yourself for cold hard cash, all going to the Municipal Services of Hathian, building a better future.
The stage in D8 on November 23rd is the name of the place, and 3pm SLT is the time. Party it up with food from our citywide businesses, as well as live radio coverage sponsored by HPD and WKRK Radio and we’re sure to have one hellova time! The last auction provided a new Ultrasound machine for Hathian General Hospital with our highest auctionee, Former HPD Chief, Hendrich Andel auctioning for quite a pretty penny, so lets see if we can get even more!
This year, the auction is open for all citizens of Hathian, though there are limited spots and the announcer will try to get everyone in! All you need to do is send an email to [email protected] (IM windie.melody) completing the following form, with a picture of yourself, so the announcer can play up your best features and get you a date of your dreams.. Or two hours! This is your chance to sell yourself in the name of charity!
The auction winner and the auctionee will arrange their own time and “date” once the auction is over and payment is made in full.
If you are unable to attend, but want to participate, you can be auctioned off without being present, via your profile you submit as well as your picture!
See you there!
((OOC: Please keep all bids realistic and plausible in theme. Not too many millionares out there willing to pay for a date, and most of the Hathian Population, in general, is tight on money, if not poor. Remember, we just got flooded, so repair expenses may be a great IC excuse not to have a whole lot of spending money!))
