People seem to widely believe that Riot officers can't escort Class D under any circumstance, and time and time again it has been proven it is not backed up by any writing or word at all, so I just wanted to make this as a PSA to everyone thats hell bent on stopping riot officers from doing anything other than standing infront of D block.
Yes, it is advisable for Riot officers to be around D Block to respond to riots, but this is the point im making.
Outside of When theres active facility codes, A Riot officer is not breaking any actual rules in the CoE, CoC, or Riot Handbook, it is merely down to people turning their own beliefs into law.
When a GenSec Higherup tells them to stay in D Block, they stay in D Block. When Certain facility codes are going, they also remain in D Block.
Absent any of these, there is no need for anyone to have a heart attack over it.

Sorry, I just had to get this out.

This should be commen knowledge.

RRT if not doing anything else and is requested are basically toned down MTF

Only thing they cannot do is goto surface or cl4 areas.

Wasnt RRT not escorting a part of RRT Handbook? Was then removed, idk if Shino remembers it, but I do as I had to write a bit on it :)

I went through the CoE, CoC, RRT Training/Handbook, and the GenSec Documents, closest I could find regarding it was that it said during Codes 1, 2, and 5, you are required to return to D Block immediately and drop what you're doing.

Documents have changed overtime, unsure on what they are now tbh.

This was actually part of the RRT handbook at one point or another, like not bodyblocking w/ shields during a C2. This was likely removed without an announcement because whichever nerd emoji manages the handbook was a spaghettihead and forgot to notify everyone.

Still, get back to d-block and stop escorting :evil:


/s post over.

I do believe RRT being unable to escort is a wise idea, because honestly not only do they tend to be overkitted for such (including riot shields), but unlike Gensec they have a much lower player cap. RRT do not have nearly as many slots as Gensec, and having them tied up doing other things when a C2/C5 can occur at pretty much any moment is a really inadvisable gameplan.
