MAY DIVISIONAL UPDATE
WEAPON LICENSING DIVISION
The licensing unit went through a big reform in the month of April. Everything from internal application responses to license application responses - including all licensing documents we have at public disposal in the " Licensing Desk " - have been reformatted and reworded. The division may seem low on member count but every member of the division is working hard to provide the best possible firearms licensing service to the State Of San Andreas.
Business Firearm Permits have been regulated and all of the companies that are benefiting from our licenses are bound to special contracts prepared by the licensing unit. The general structure of the division has been revised, things are now more simplified to encourage other troopers to join our division. Paperwork and mandatory training are now lighter, brief but informing. With all the licenses our unit issues, San Andreas State Police profits and has more cash to finance our operations in the field to serve the community in a more effective manner.
APRIL 2020'S PROFIT: $625,000
PROFIT MADE IN 2020 SO FAR: $2,159,850

ACADEMIC TRAINING UNIT
The Academic Training Unit has had a slow but productive month. We added a new position, named Head Training Supervisor. Master Trooper Akeno Kimura has taken up that role. Further than that, we had a meeting Saturday 25 April, to go over some topics and suggestions. We are going to try to cut down the time to the introduction phase of the academy, as well as cut down the time on the stations. We will not remove any material, but we do want to teach a little faster. In turn, we are discussing internally the potential of adding a driving training at the new Sprunk Arena.
We are also going to be working very closely to FTU to make sure you are preparing the probationaries properly for the new FTU system. Overall, it was a good month for ATU and I am so grateful to lead this unit. I will continue to make the necessary changes for the better until the unit is perfect. I look forward to the month of May.
Director, Academic Training Unit
The Recruitment Unit has had an astounding month, our unit as from batch 3 introduced voting which seems to have really made the process going smooth. We have completely revamped the application format, as well as add and/or remove a few things to make it more appealing to look at as well as help us understand our applicants more thus allowing us to help them and train them into becoming the trooper they can be.
The key to good training is knowing your students, and that is something we will go into a lot for batch 5 once the refresher
training has been complicated as we figure out how we can know as much as we need.
Director, Recruitment Unit
FIELD TRAINING UNIT
This month was quite a challenging month for the Field Training Unit as we completely revamped our program and we had to help troopers adapt themselves quickly and follow the procedures.
This month 12 individuals were deemed suitable candidates for the position of Academy Student and Probationary Trooper for Batch #04 by the Recruitment and Training Unit and attended a State Police Academy before becoming sworn Law Enforcement Officers and Probationary employees of the San Andreas State Police.
To this date, 6 of those individuals have been relieved of their positions; some by their own choosing and others by the order of myself.
Every Probationary Trooper who has left their position with this Department has done so as a direct result of their motivation and work ethic. There have been no official disciplinary issues or breach of protocol that resulted in poor evaluations. To put it simply, these individuals aren't even showing up to work for their jobs.
At this point in time Probationary Troopers are at the following stages:
FTP Stage 1: 1
FTP Stage 2: 0
FTP Stage 3: 4
FTP Stage 4: 0
FTP Stage 5: 0
