######## Tab 3 / "How-To - Police" (This was generated just now by me and will also be posted to the Guides section) ########
Here's how to play as a law enforcement officer.

Below are a couple of quick notes.
- Review the list of commands under the "Hotkeys and Commands" tab.
- To stop or arrest a pedestrian, you must aim a weapon at them, then press E to interact with them. Step into the circle and use the on-screen menu.
- To use the AI Transport system, click Actions > More > More > Request Transport. The transport unit will only take valid suspects to jail.
- You can earn incremental experience points by use of the /patrol feature.
- Cadets are limited to the amount of tools they can use. You spawn with a bicycle (or a golf cart in LS, SF, or LV). You can respond to calls, but any arrests you make must be done via the AI transport system.
- You cannot detain people in the following vehicles: Bicycle, Caddy, Tow Truck, Police Ranger, Motorcycle, Cheetah, Unmarked Yosemite, or Police Maverick.

Using the AI Transport
After stopping a citizen, you can interact with them to send them to jail.
You can request a transport unit by clicking Actions > More > More > Request Transport.
To send two people to jail at once, you must click "Appoint Transport" instead of "Request Transport" for the first person.

Interacting with citizens
You can stop citizens on foot by aiming at them and pressing "E". You can then interact with them by using the on-screen menu.
You can stop citizens in vehicles by pressing Left Shift. You can then interact with the driver and any passengers by using the on-screen dialog.
Be careful - sometimes the citizen may flee (on foot or in their vehicle), or attack you.
To request information about a vehicle or request a tow truck, click M to activate your mouse, then right click on the vehicle.

Responding to calls
Before you can respond to calls, you must go on duty. Review the list of commands for this. Once you are on duty, you can patrol the area while waiting for calls.
Once you receive a call, you can respond to it accordingly. If you choose to accept the call, your destination will be marked on the map with a yellow circle.
TIP: Once on scene, park your patrol car out of all traffic lanes to avoid it being struck.
There are several types of calls requiring various responses from players. Determine the best way to handle the call. Some calls may result in simple arrests. Other calls are more dangerous.
You request backup by pressing F6, B, or typing "backup" in dispatch chat. If other officers are available, they may respond to your location to assist you.
Some suspects may pull out a weapon and attack you. If you shoot these suspects, you can request EMS for them by pressing "B".
Sometimes, callouts may end in a vehicle needing to be towed. You can request a tow truck by clicking "M", then right-clicking on the vehicle.

######## Tab 4 / "How-To - EMS" / Guide made by OfficerJacob ########
Lately I've been getting questions on how to transport patients and how to evaluate the patients condition.
Here are some controls to know
- First things first primary lights are toggled by J and K for secondary.
- To open the dialogue you will have to click M that will make your mouse pop up, right click the patient in order to begin evaluating (make sure your close enough or won't work).
- Use X and N to reply to dispatch whether you decide to respond to a callout or not. (btw you can go 10-8 via F4).

Alright now that you know these controls you can begin to head in to the next step which will be: 
- Check the patients vitals by going into test and clicking for lungs, heart and warmth.
- After the vitals has been evaluated you should read the dialogue below the name of the patient. This dialogue will tell you which response to take towards the patient whether It's CPR or just some pills. Stabilizing the patient is a MUST, you get told off by chat automatically and you don't get the extra exp.
- Now here comes the fun part now If you click on vehicle with the little ambulance picture this will automatically put the patient on a stretcher. All you have to do is make sure that you put your patients in the ambulance by going behind it. Once done you will have to transport the patient to the nearest hospital closest to you. Through the blue circle shaped beacon thingy and there you go.

Alright that's pretty much it. I know it looks like a lot to do but don't worry just break down the steps to one word like this.

- Respond
- Evaluate
- Transport

You will be doing awesome and will be a pro at this in no time.
