WEAPONS
AND
EQUIPMENT

STANDARD ISSUE:
This is what every officer receives, and every uniformed officer is expected to carry, although some officers may elect to carry less.  Detectives carry much less, usually carrying only their badge, light undercover Amored Vest, OID button, and a single pair of standard handcuffs.  Detectives usually elect to purchase their own handgun, most often a smaller, lighter, more comfortable weapon, however they may choose to carry their standard issue Armalite .44 or Arasaka LEH (if they do so, they must register the weapon as their carry weapon, and must pay for the cost of oufitting it with a cookie cutter device, gun cam, and 911 ship out of their own pockets).  It should be noted, that detectives and all other police personell, retain their standard issue uniform and equipment until they retire or their employment is terminated.  For 25% discount, officers can choose to purchase their uniforms and equipment, and doing so allows them to retain it after their employment has ended.

THE BADGE:
The very first piece of equipment a police officer will receive.  Today even the badge is improved, it acts as a "cookie cutter" (SOF 1) recognition badge, and works with the devices in police firearms to ensure that one officer cannot shoot another.  It also acts as a homing beacon.  Both features are controlled from the home precinct and can be shut off by remote.  Included with this is the police ID.

O.I.D. BUTTON:
The OID (officer in distress) button is a relatively simple device, it sends a message to the nearest precinct asking for backup, the number of times the device is tapped determines the level of threat.  4 indicates maximum threat.  Generally worn on the collar, about an inch long, half and inch wide, and 3 centimeters thick.

GAS MASK:
Acts as both a gas mask and a filter, with a 30 minute air supply.  It also acts as facial armor (SP10) and features Low Light, Anti Dazzle, Times Square, and Thermograph visual options.


HANDCUFFS:
Every officer is given 4 pairs of plascuffs (which are thinner than regular handcuffs but twice as strong), 2 pair of Ion Cuffs (although most officers don't carry them or leave them in the car), and 10 stripwire binders.
(See Protect and Serve for more detail)
 

GUN BELT AND SHOULDER HOLSTER:
Standard issue, a gun belt with pouches for the equipment and a holster for the Armalite .44, and a shoulder holster that attaches to the left side buckles of the vest for the Arasaka LEH.  (For left handed officers everything can be reversed.)

ARMALITE .44:
This semi-automatic handgun is kept on the right (or left) hip, and is generally the weapon of choice in an officers arsenal.  There is also a magazine pouch that clips to the buckles on the right (or left) side of the vest which provides fast access to 3 spare clips.   This Handgun, like all sidearms issued by the NCPD, is mandatory equipped with a 911 chip (Chrome 2),  cookie cutter (SOF 1), and a gun cam (Chrome 2).

ARASAKA LEH-451:
While most police departments issue the Constitutional Arms Multiple Ammunition Pistol, NCPD prefers its competitor's weapon.  This is mainly due to the LEH's smaller size, and more comfortable feel, even at the slightly higher price.  It accepts the same array of ammunition, and exhibits the same level of accuracy.   Issued to the officer are 2 speedloaders with regular ammunition, 1 speedloader with a mix of Hyper-penetration and explosive rounds, and 1 speedloader with a mix of Taser and Dart rounds. (See Protect and Serve for details on the ammunition.)  This Handgun, like all sidearms issued by the NCPD, is mandatory equipped with a 911 chip (Chrome 2),  cookie cutter (SOF 1), and gun cam (Chrome 2).  (For more information on this weapon see Autumn Blade.)

CONSTITUTIONAL ARMS DDMAP:
In order to minimize weight and bulk, NCPD have begun issueing CA's dual pistol, the DDMAP to officers who request it.  The weapon effectively replaces both the Armalite .44 and the Arasaka LEH-45, giving the power and versalitlity of both weapons in one simple package.  When chosen, this weapon is worn on the hip, the holster for the armalite is replaced with an additional pouch holding 3 magazines,
also issued to the officer are 2 speedloaders with a mix of Hyper-penetration and explosive rounds, and 2 speedloaders with a mix of Taser and Dart rounds. (See Protect and Serve for details on the ammunition.)  This Handgun, like all sidearms issued by the NCPD, is mandatory equipped with a 911 chip (Chrome 2),  cookie cutter (SOF 1), and gun cam (Chrome 2).  (For more information on this weapon see Autumn Blade.)

CONSTITUTIONAL ARMS LDD-4:
The lighter version of the DDMAP, for officers serving in less high risk areas who don't typically need the firepower of the DDMAP or Armalite .44.  When chosen, this weapon is worn on the hip, the holster for the armalite is replaced with an additional pouch holding 3 magazines, and the speedloaders issued with the leh-451 AND ca-map WORK WITH THIS WEAPON AS WELL. 
Issued to the officer are 2 speedloaders with regular ammunition, 1 speedloader with a mix of Hyper-penetration and explosive rounds, and 1 speedloader with a mix of Taser and Dart rounds. (See Protect and Serve for details on the ammunition.)  This Handgun, like all sidearms issued by the NCPD, is mandatory equipped with a 911 chip (Chrome 2),  cookie cutter (SOF 1), and gun cam (Chrome 2).  (For more information on this weapon see Autumn Blade.)

KNIVES:
Every officer is assigned three knives, a combat knife worn on the right chest, a boot knife, on the left calf, and a utility knife, kept in one of the pouches or pockets.

ARASAKA PRW SHOTGUN:

CYBERNETICS:
It is the policy of the NCPD to replace, if possible, any limb or organ lost in the line of duty.  NCPD will not however pay for upgrades, merely the standard cybernetic option (ie. if you lose an eye, it is replaced with the basic cybereye (or flesh part if possible), if you lose an arm, you get a standard cyberarm in its place.  The only exceptions to this are full body conversion.  Officers who have had their body damaged beyond repair can elect to undergo full body conversion, and are equiped by the police department with an "Enforcer" package.  This is not exactly as good as it sounds, by accepting this, the officer signs a ten year contract, and is automatically transferred to C-SWAT.  If an officer decides to retire early he has two choices available to him, he can try and buy himself a new body, or he can buy the body he has from the department, neither are cheap, costing as much as some officers manage to save in a lifetime.  Officers who join the force that are already full conversion will have any illegal implants removed, and be given the choice to keep their current body, or be upgraded to an enforcer package, if they choose the upgrade then the same rules apply as before, although it will be cheaper by far.

Recently, in the hopes of stealing the contract away from Militech, Arasaka has been field testing the Enforcer II and have chosen Night City as their Testing grounds, picking a volunteer and outfitting him with the package.  The Enforcer II package, while being faster, stronger, more durable and containing more options also has an additional plus, when off duty the enforcer is similar in appearance to an Alpha class body, allowing clothes to be worn over it and giving a less intimidating appearance so that the officer might better interact with the civilian populace, when on duty however, the Enforcer II is specially built to accept "add on" armor plating and weapon systems, amking it into a combat monster.

SURVEILLANCE DATACAMERA:
Able to record still frame, video, and audio in a simultaneous wide spectrum array including standard, Low-Light, Thermograph, IR, and Ultraviolet.  Is also equipped with both directional and laser mics capable of standard and subsonic recording.  The camera can store up to 8000 images, or 12 hours of video before the data storage unit must be replaced. 

Forensic Recorder:
One of the greatest law enforcement tools available to the NCPD is the Virtual Crime scene.  By use of this device, which consists of a helmet with drop down video monitor display, a poweful back pack processer with data uploader and wireless modem, and a video recording gauntlet.  FIrst the Forensic recorder goes in an records the scene, every inch, from as many different angles as necessary to capture the scene as completely as possible.  Including scanning iside drawers, compartments, holes, scanning around bodies and shell casings, and any other even slightly relevant POV.  This information is uploaded to the Central Processor at Forensics headquarters and creates the base Virtual Crime Scene.  Then every image, both video and still, captured before, during, and after, from any source, is added in to the database.  Usually these extra images come from Officer Gun Cams and secutiry videos, but ocasionally from cyber eyes or what not.  Anyway, these are time stamped and uploaded into the VCS compilation as well, and when all is said and done, in a matter of about 4 hours per 50ft sq room you have a VCS representation. The perfect 3 dimensional VCS representation will allow investigating officers and juries to full explore the Crime scene as if they were actually there through interface.  In some cases, if there is enough photographic evidence (and even audio in some instances) an investigator can explore the crime scene in an as it happenned manner.  Going from the beginning of the crime to the end, pausing and examing even the most minor details, slow motion, fast forward, etc.  Any events the police don't have photographic evidence of will often be "best guessed" by the computer, and filled in via the most logical turn of events.
