As of February 2015 the US government has made sweeping changes to prison sentencing and rehabilitation for imPorts. ImPorts convicted of crimes will not serve their sentences from the confinement of a prison unless they specifically request it. Instead, convicted imPorts will be given a two month long community sentence to complete and will be assigned a Registered imPort to act as their probationary officer for the duration of their sentence. Criminals will be required to check in with these Registered imPorts daily as they would a regular probationary officer to ensure they are cooperating with and fulfilling their probational obligations, ensuring they are not violating any of the terms of their probation. During this time, their powers will be nullified either entirely or partially depending on the severity of their crime.
This system functions primarily on an OOC basis of players volunteering their Registered characters rather than an IC volunteering. However, IC willingness can and will factor into this system to an extent.
If your character is currently serving time, you will need to fill out the form below and respond HERE.
If you would like to sign up your character to be tasked with the duties of an imPort probational officer, you will need to fill out the form below and respond HERE.
The mods will randomly pair up Criminal and Registered status imPorts. This is to create brand new CR opportunities for players, although they are free to request a specific Registered character if they have received the player's permission and/or plotted together in advance.
Registered imPorts acting as probational officers will be tasked and responsible for:
Intensive supervision of the offenders they are assigned to. They will be given a record book in which they are to write down what imPort offenders are up to, if they are keeping up with their community service, reintegrating with the community properly, or if they are observing problematic behaviour.
Ensuring offenders are not breaking their curfew, which is at 10PM from Monday to Sunday, exceptions granted for Swear-Ins and other government or military functions.
Ensuring offenders are not purchasing and/or consuming illegal substances.
Attending court with them near the end of their sentence, sometimes to testify about the notes taken, and/or recommendations made by the Registered imPort. This is to determine if the Criminal imPort has completed their community service and if they should be released. As a note, Criminals will be released after the two months, but if the Criminal and Registered imPort players want to play around with a possible extended service due to their characters not getting along, or disobeying the terms of their probation, feel free!
However, if a Criminal imPort they are supervising violates any of the terms of their probation or commits a crime, the Registered imPort will be held partially responsible and face appropriate consequences, which will vary depending on the severity of the infractions.
Registered imPorts will not be paid for their service; it's a volunteer system, after all!
