OP: Sunshine - Updated info

Post by Erik » Sun Jul 22, 2007 3:18 pm

OPERATION: SUNSHINE

Image

WHAT: Police v. Terrorists scenario with realistic rules of engagement.

WHEN: This Spring?

WHERE: Classified (for now)

SCENARIO: Terrorists have taken over a college dorm and are holding hostages. Due to jurisdictional conflicts, no SWAT Team is available. You are the police officers on the scene. What do you do?

ROLES: Police Chief, Negotiators, Police Officers, Hostages (Terrorists have been chosen)

UNIFORM & WEAPON RESTRICTIONS:
Police uniforms - navy blue BDUs with pistol belt, pistol, other police equipment (flashlight, belt keepers, etc) optional

Police weapons - pistol with up to 3 extra mags, shotguns

Right now, I'm simply gauging interest. This op still needs a lot of planning. If you are interested in roleplaying a police officer in a realistic hostage situation, feel free to sound off.

I also wanted to mention, my vision in the Op is to be the first in a SERIES. While there are a lot of people who want to play SWAT, you really can't just show up and do it. You need training and experience. The purpose of Op: Sunshine is to help provide that training and experience.

Prior to this game, I want to set up a "training day" for the police officers, to help them get ready. Your "experience" comes with the game itself. After that, there will be more to come.

Participation is the key to success. Watch this space for updates in the next few months.

I'd be in for anything needed. You probably don't want someone who looks like a 3 year old to be a cop.

Put me down for Negotiater, Police Chief, or Hostage. (Unless you find you need another terrorist).

I'm interested. I've done a fair amount of negotiating simulation, but it was more along an international politics aspect instead of psychological aspect. I'll do anything.

Once again, I would be very interested in any role, and willing to get (if I don't already have) the required gear for that role.

Don't have any navy blue - would black be acceptable.

This really sounds like alot of fun - if it's on a day I can in any way make it count me in! I'll play whatever role you need - are the negotiators likely to see any actual action? I was in the same undergrad negotiation class as Trippy, and a negotiator sounds like it would be great fun! :P

The game is going to be a ways off, can't you put some money aside for blue before then?

Yah, I would have little trouble getting blue BDUs if necessary - but since black is also a common police color (though, I admit, more so for SWAT that patrol police) I was hoping I could get away with that. If black is acceptable, that would be nice, if not it's no biggie I can get some blues.

I'm gonna guess no. While the P-90 is in use with a few US SWAT teams neither weapon would be issued to a patrol officer, which is what this scenario is all about.

But police officers usually have a shotgun and/or patrol carbine with them, so maybe guns besides pistols will come into play sometime.

While that may be true today, that has only become standard practice in the 10 (or so) years, and if I'm not mistaken this scenario is supposed to be set in the 80s. While in most patrol cars shotguns were standard back then carbines were not. Back then even SWAT team's long guns usually only consisted of shotguns & sub-machine guns (with the exception of snipers).

A lot of PD's (especially metro PDs) didn't even have shotguns or carbines in every unit until after 9/11. Even still, lots of cars don't have any more weapons than what the officer is carrying (i.e. a regular pistol and a small backup pistol usually)

I thought it was the N Hollywood bank robbery that sparked Officers to carry larger caliber weapons.

Yeah. Me too. I saw it on the History Channel (Modern Marvels) and how the Firearms evolved and who used them. It said that soon after that incident the the local PD was given AR15s and that soon spread across the country (Not all of the country).

It did to an extent but, to date, there are a LOT of P.D.s across the country that don't have more than a shotgun in regular patrol cars.
Most of the federal funding goes to SWAT and disaster/emergency management training & equipment. What little (if any) left over money trickles down to the patrol level.

Yes, it was. But it wasn't 'til the advent of "Homeland Security" that local PDs actually started to get a decent amount of spending money which they could use on shotguns or the like.

Count me in as an Officer. Have my blue BDU's and full duty belt. I will have a pistol by that time as well.

I wouldn't mind helping to plan and organize this as well if you would like some extra help. It wasn't that long ago that I was doing these same type of scenarios in the final leg of my schooling.

When I think of Airsoft, this is what I think of. :D
