Welcome. If you are reading this, you have been accepted into the prestigious ranks of the City 18 Combine Civil Authority Civil Protection division. Outlined below is all of the information you will need to get started maintaining sociostability.


The City 18 Combine Civil Authority Division maintains a simple and effective rank structure. After being processed, officers are issued a designation, personal equipment, and the rank of 04. Through hard work and dedication, officers may be rewarded with promotions. Upon reaching a command rank, officers are issued a call-sign, allowing them to be easily distinguishable from basic patrol units. The chain of command is as follows:

PrC -> SqL -> 01 -> 02 -> 03 -> 04

Ex. Designation (Ground Units)


Ex. Call-Sign (Field Command)


[You may notice our rank structure lacks any of the traditional high command roles you may be accustomed to. This is because high command will be represented as a collective effort of the entire administration team. So while the Precinct Commander rank is the highest field command rank on the server, they are not the ultimate authority.]


The City 18 Civil Protection division does not operate with permanent squads. Instead, Field Command may form squads on the fly should the situation necessitate it. When a squad is formed, the unit will take on the callsign of the squad’s leader.

CCA-C18.SqL-ALPHA drafts CCA-C18.UNIT-04.12345 into a squad.

CCA-C18.UNIT-04.12345 is redesignated as CCA-C18.ALPHA-04.12345 for the duration of the operation. After the unit is released, the unit’s original designation is returned.


Upon recruitment into the Civil Protection division of the CCA, officers are issued with the basic equipment they will need to perform their duties. It is each officer’s responsibility to keep track of and maintain their own equipment. Those who fail to do so may face disciplinary action. Officers of sufficient rank are given access to more elaborate tools which may be used to more efficiently perform their duties.

Basic Loadout

UNIFORM (All ranks)
Standard issue Civil Protection uniform; jacket, trousers, mask, gloves, boots, and duty belt. Colored armbands are worn on the arms to distinguish field command from ground units at a glance.

Red - Precinct Commander
Blue - Squad Leader
White - Ground Unit

Zip Ties
USP Match .45

Flare Gun

Tactical Viscerator

Combine Turret


SMGs and shotguns may be temporarily distributed to units who are not authorized on a situational basis. Officers of rank 03 and above may choose between the H&K MP5 or H&K UMP45 for their primary weapons. These weapons are only to be carried in dire circumstances where the firepower of a pistol is no longer sufficient. 02 and above may be issued shotguns with either buckshot, beanbag rounds, or breaching slugs.


The Civil Protection Division of City 18 trusts its officers to respond appropriately in any given situation. Use of force is permitted when civil unrest cannot be contained through normal methods. That said, officers should give the civilian population a small degree of freedom to preserve feelings of apathy and dispassion. Escalation may occur if pressed more than necessary.

When conducting searches, manning checkpoints, and other similar actions, officers should check for identification and question each individual thoroughly; where they are coming from, where they are going, why they are going, and when they will return. Officers may inquire further at their discretion. Citizens may be sequestered and interrogated further if their responses are not satisfactory.

At the end of the day, it is up to each officer to choose the most appropriate response to any given situation.


Officers in the CCA Civil Protection division will spend much of their time on duty patrolling the streets. During this time, officers are expected to maintain stability, suppress discontent, and correct uncivil disobedience whenever it is displayed. When patrolling outside of sterile sectors, officers should always operate in groups of at least two or three. Outside of this, officers are expected to maintain a high degree of autonomy when patrolling.

In the extremely rare event that an armed uprising occurs, all available units must assemble at the Nexus (or other designated location, consult with your Precinct Commander) and await orders from your superiors. We are confident that each precinct will take all necessary actions to eliminate the threat.

[Units are encouraged to establish partnerships with fellow units and patrol in groups. This not only helps ensure operational security, but such partnerships can also help foster character development. We would also like to encourage units to get creative when attempting to oppress citizens. Everyone has experienced being beat with a stun baton, so try to do your best to think of ways that go beyond a simple beating.]

An essential part of any patrol is the radio. It should be used to keep field command apprised and stay in contact with other units in the field.

[Though not required to be used, below is a list of common codes or terms you may see. You are not expected to memorize these codes, but if you make an effort to use them here and there, over time you will be able to remember them naturally.]

With this in mind, officers will be provided access to a lounge and will be provided with sterilized credits for use at a CCA-only commissary. Officers are encouraged to fraternize and form lasting bonds that will strengthen their cohesion as the world’s primary peacekeeping and stabilization force.

[We want to encourage units to interact positively with each other, both on and off-duty. To help promote this, the administration team has decided to put together an officer’s lounge within the Nexus. This is a place where units can be informal with each other and socialize regardless of rank.]
