ACADEMY PROCESS INFORMATION
  • The Academy Process of the San Andreas Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation consists of several stages in which applicants are evaluated, trained and prepared to conduct their duties as Correctional Officers in accordance with the Department guidelines. The Academy Process is composed as follows:
    • CORRECTIONAL OFFICER APPLICATION — STAGE 0
      The selection process starts with a review of each applicant's Correctional Officer Application, to identify those who appear to possess the relevant knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to successfully perform the duties and responsibilities of a correctional officer. Applicants who successfully pass this step will be required to complete the Qualifications and Motivations Essay (QME).
    • CADET EVALUATIONS — STAGE 1
      Applicants whose execution of the QME is deemed satisfactory advance to Stage 1, where they are appointed as Cadets. Stage 1 consists of evaluations which aim at establishing if Cadets are suitable for employment as Correctional Officers. The Verbal Interview (VI) allow the Department to ensure that Cadets meet all the minimum qualifications required to be appointed to a Correctional Officer position.
    • SERVICE TRAINING — STAGE 2
      Cadets who successfully pass both evaluations are allowed to Stage 2, where they are provided with both theoretical as well as practical training. In addition to Department policy and basic protocols, Cadets are also trained in use of force techniques and are taught how to handle the duty equipment. The final step of Stage 2 is the Correctional Officer Exam (COE).
    • INDUCTION — STAGE 3
      Successful completion of the COE allows Cadets to be inducted in the Department. The induction ceremony is usually held at the San Andreas Correctional Facility, where Cadets are officially appointed Correctional Officers and receive their SADCR badge from the Warden of SACF or their designee.
    (( The whole recruitment process is done in character and in game. The only exception are written tests, which are not held in game. TeamSpeak 3 voice chat is not used during the SADCR Academy Process. )).

APPLICATION FILING INSTRUCTIONS
  • All applications shall be filed in digital copy in the Recruitment Section of the San Andreas Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website. The Department does not accept hard copies of applications. (( New post in the Recruitment Section Board. ))

    Dates shall follow the United States military format and written as DD/MMM/YYYY (i.e. 21/JUL/2018).

    All fields of the application shall be compiled. Failure to do so may result in the application being denied. "N/A" shall be used for fields that do not apply.

Image
(( ACADEMY TIPS ))
  • All applications are digital copies sent to the Recruitment & Evaluation Unit on the Recruitment section of the San Andreas Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website. Likewise, all replies are in digital copy;
  • All applications are not publicly visible or available. Law enforcement agencies may know of the requests' existence if these agencies are referenced in any way;
  • All applications may be edited before it is forwarded, since they are locked afterwards. The application you submit is considered to be final, until/unless you are instructed to edit it (indicated by [PENDING]);
  • All applications shall include effort in all fields of the respective formats. Failure to show effort will result in denial and might be considered as attempting to withhold information;
  • All forum names shall follow the Firstname_Lastname format. Namechanges can be required on the Forum Namechange topic;
  • All forum users are allowed to possess only ONE (1) and not more forum accounts. Refer to the Forum Namechange topic for a namechange;
  • Do not use NPC characters as reason to apply (e.g.: "my father was working for SADCR"). This does not apply to real, existing characters employed by SADCR;
  • Do not roleplay your character having a higher education (e.g. degree in law) without no OOC knowledge to back it up. It's entirely acceptable and not at all unrealistic or uncommon for correctional officers to only have a GED;
  • Proper terminology shall be used throughout the academy process; usage of prison guards in lieu of correctional officers or SACF in lieu of SADCR is heavily frowned upon and is grounds for OOC denial;
  • Make sure to list all characters and all admin records belonging;
  • Make sure to meet minimum words count in questions required them. Failure to meet minimum word count is grounds for denial regardless of the rightness of the answer;
  • Make sure that all BBcodes are working correctly by using the preview feature before submitting your application. Applications may be submitted at any time, which means edits will not be accepted after it has been forwarded.

      APPLICANT SIGNATURE: John Doe
      DATE: DD/MMM/YYYY
    (( F. OOC INFORMATION ))
    • F1. Timezone: GMT+X
      F2. Age: 10
      F3. Gender: Male

      F4. Screenshot of the in-game statistics (/stats) of the character you are applying with: ACCESS

      You replace "picture_url_here" with an URL to your screenshot. We recommend using http://imgur.com

      F5. List of all current characters and past character names, current levels and name of current faction:
      [+] Character 1.
      (CURRENT NAME) Jane_Doe - Level 12 - Armenian Power 13
      Kurt_Weller
      Audrey_Esparza

      You namechanged this character three times, thus you list three names.
      [+] Character 2.
      (CURRENT NAME) Sam_Pellington - Level 1 - N/A

      Since the character's name hasn't been changed since its registration, you write the above said. You also can add more spoilers if you have more than two characters.
      F6. List and link of all current and past LSRP forums accounts:
      [+] Spoiler
      1. Department of Corrections
      2. FORUM_ACCOUNT_NAME
      You replace "account_url_here" with the URL to the forum account. You may use more [ * ]'s should you have more than two forum accounts.
      F7. List and link of screenshots of all admin records:
      [+] Spoiler
      1. Screenshot #1
      2. Screenshot #2
      Replace "picture_url_here" with the link to the image. The easiest way to take a picture of these (besides using gyazo or puush) is simply pressing the Printscreen button, Ctrl+V in Paint, and cropping the image so it only contains the admin record - then uploading the cropped image.) Keep in mind that we require admin records for every single character you have (so all names you posted in OOC Q5), not just the one you are applying with. If you cannot access certain characters (different UCP account, for example), then note this down in this spoiler. You may add more [ * ]'s should you have more than two characters.
      F8. Have you ever attempted to join other factions (including SADCR)? [X] Yes [ ] No
      F9. If yes, fill the form below:
      [+] Spoiler
      1. LSSD, James Carter, 03/NOV/2015, failed final exam
        SADCR, Jonathan Blake, 15/JAN/2014, Resignation
      Note that recently failing to join LSPD/LSSD is a reason for denial, as it's seen as faction hopping. Recently leaving said factions on good terms (resigning from them) will not result in a denial, unless there are additional circumstances.
      F10. Are you currently a member of another official faction? [X] Yes [ ] No
      F11. If yes, provide a link to SADCR Double Faction permission: ACCESS (Random example)

      F12. Do you have a microphone? [ ] Yes [X] No
      F13. Do you have TeamSpeak 3 and are you prepared to use it? [X] Yes [ ] No

      Having a microphone is not a must, but being able and willing to run TeamSpeak 3 is — it's used for squad organization (you can mute people most of the time).

      F14. Have you ever roleplayed in SACF? [X] Yes [ ] No
      F15. If yes, tell us your experiences:
      • Yes, I've interacted with both inmates and members of SADCR. I found the environment of SACF agreeable and wish to RP in prison more.
      F16. Why do you want to join the faction? Explain your reason(s) in at least 100 words:
      • Simply explain why you wish to join the faction, what made you aware of prison roleplay/SADCR, etc. Please note that applying to SADCR in order to later "advance" to PD or SD, will result in automatic denial. If this is your reason for joining, it might be a good idea to reconsider applying at all.
