L.A.P.D.

Replicant Detection (Division) Rep-Detect
Los Angeles HQ


Infomercial:
The nature of the blade runner division is told to be a semi-secretive police organization with a bit dubious methods; some theorize even that Rep-Detect is involved in dark conspiracies. We at the Division deny that. Blade runners can evidently force citizens to take the replicant detection test, Voight-Kampff, and they are allowed to shoot replicants openly in the streets. This is for your own protection. We keep you safe.
Not everyone is built to become a Blade Runner. That is why only the best of the best are invited to take the Rep-Detect test. Since 2011 we have served Los Angeles and the world.
We at the Division handpick five officers from the Los Angeles Police Department annually to get the opportunity to become Rep-Detectives.



Hierarchy of L.A.P.D.

L.A.P.D. (Former FBI and LAPD now work as one unit)
Provides personnel, facilities, vehicles and moral ethics.

LAITB
Provides the technology and research and design
of new products.

Provides the imagery and INTEL files on targets and locations of interest.
Also responsible for letting Gaff join the Rep-Detect Division.

ITB

“We are moving forward aggressively to build better and faster networks; innovative IT tools and applications for agents and other professionals; and automated systems that streamline our work and free up our time. The Information and Technology Branch, or ITB, leads this effort in the Replicant Detection Division.”

The Replicant Detection Division is an under branch of L.A. ITB
The Information and Technology Branch is charged with:

  • Delivering the reliable and effective technology solutions needed to fulfill the Replicant Detection Division´s mission anytime, anywhere, on-time, and on-budget;
  • Leading the strategic direction for the L.A.P.D information technology through the strategic plan and to have an edge over corporate powers, and
  • Promoting and facilitating the creation, sharing, and application of L.A.ITB knowledge products to improve overall effectiveness of Blade Runners on and off world.

Working under the umbrella of COINTELPRO, Replicant Detection Division has a legacy to defend L.A. towards organizations trying to take over government roles.


Protocol for Blade Runners

When issued a job. Follow the leads and investigate the last known location.

Make sure the leads found are cataloged in the KIA.

If the subject is found: Show the Rep-Detect ID and ask for an opportunity to an interview.

If not, leave a business card and tag the subject for a follow up. (Use a tracking device so we´ll know where it goes.)

If the subject gets hostile, try to calm him or her down. If need be, use non lethal force to subdue the subject.

Take in custody due to section § 4-2 “Resistance to verification and analysis”. This can be referenced at any stage of the retirement process.

Return within 24hours to take the interview with papers giving Rep-Detect Division full rights to violate the rights of personal integrity. This process can be foregone by proof of Replicant activity in the vicinity of the location. A scale from an artificial being, a vid-feed of illegal activity or improper behavior. Then, the Blade runner only needs his shield to do a search of the premises and conduct an unsupervised interview.

If the result is conclusive and the subject found being non-human, retire the andy and call for a Van Ness truck to bring the remains to the repair shop. Alternatively, transport the model to HQ for dismantling at LAITB. Why waste perfectly good tech?

After a shooting of a replicant, the detective on site must return his or her gun to the shooting master at LAPD HQ. Ballistic test and adjustment will be done and taken. All evidence from the retirement are uploaded to the main frame.

Upon a properly screened shoot, the bounty is transferred to the Rep-Detective´s account. Cash can be paid out but then only 50% is given. That is to grant not too much solid money gets into the hands of criminals. And a way to support the Replicant Detective Divison´s moratorium and afterlife fund.


Procedures

The division works on assumptions of replicant probability. There are ten different steps of probability.
The two “curves” show a probability rate. The two have different aspects. The first works on the assumption that the criminal is not a Replicant. H1-H5
The second works on the criminal is a Replicant, R1-R5.

H1-H5

  • 1 no papers 5%
  • 2 no papers, criminality 25%
  • 3 no papers, criminality, violence 50% probabilty
  • 4 no papers, criminality, violence, intelligence 75%
  • 5 no papers, criminality, violence, intelligence, murder 90%

The order can be turned around but just a murder is no guarantee for a replicant as the killer. Just a higher probability than if just a no papers case.

R1-R5

  • 1 murder 50%
  • 2 murder, intelliugence 75% probability
  • 3 murder, intelligence, violence 85%
  • 4 murder, intelligence, violence, criminality 95%
  • 5 murder, intelligence, violence, criminality, no papers 99%

An R1 call will receive more Blade Runner units than an H1 call. But the game is all about the money, right?
There´s a balancing act with risking your neck as a Blade Runner and getting that Owl. You´ll get one in the end, you know it. But how much time to we have? Who knows?

The safer bet – as to surviving is to frequent places where fights arise, where people don´t carry papers and where criminality is high. Bars, clubs and low profile conapts. It´s a lot of legwork but it sure is safer than investigating a multiple murder at any location.
