Alert Status and Suit Sensors. Authoritative answer needed


Nanako

Question

At present, i am acting on the following beliefs:


1. At Code Green: No suit sensors are required, any setting is allowed

2. At Code Blue: All suit sensors must be set to at least Vitals Tracker

3. At Code Red: All suit sensors must be set to Tracking Beacon (ie, the highest setting)

4. In any case where suit sensors have a minimum requirement, not setting them to that level is a crime, and the perpetrator should be reported to security.


I cannot firmly remember who told me these, but i know it came from some combination of asking skull directly, and ahelping (can't remember who answered).


I have been acting on these beliefs with impunity, and often, when i have the time, i'll comb through the manifest to find who isn't following the rules, contact them informing them of the requirements, and report them if they don't comply.


In any case the purpose of this thread is simple. Am I wrong?

If the above beliefs are not correct, then what is. I need an authoritative answer about what suit sensors are required by procedure, at what alert levels. If the above is wrong, then please specify exactly, in clear words, what is correct. An ideal reply would state the sensor policy at all alert levels in full.


I am asking because someone recently used my behaviour regarding sensor policy as a mark against me in an application thread, and accused me of not knowing procedure properly. So i wish to:

1. Either ensure that i do know it properly, or correct my beliefs if i don't.

2. Have an authoritative judgement to link people to when they question this regulation

Yeah thats standard procedure. Although i dont think anyone has ever been arrested for not doing it.

 

On code red, security is usually too busy to hunt for regulation breaking assistants, especially if its a <5 minutes sentence

 

not if that's what they're busy with. when there's a traitor around, a list of who has no sensors enabled is almost certain to include the traitor


Security often ends up at code red because bombing/shooting/corpses, but has no leads. Following up on a list of possible suspects is something a detective can do.

That may be true when the suspect is a crew member, but the usual cause of code red is usually either secuirty is all ded and the prep is already known or its heist or something.

Okay, I did some searching, and asking more veteran Duty Officers to get a more concise response, and apparently this conversation has come up before and the conversation happened in detail. This was the result (copy and pasted):

This has been asked before. The answer we got back then. Is you should follow SoP, but many ignore it. But if you have been directly ordered by your supervisor or the captain to up them and you do not in a code, you are elligible for arrest.

This was enacted with a CE who refused to up sensors in a crisis leading to their wounding. They were rescued and then arrested and held until the crisis was over.

And active people in the crisis zone, in particular security are expected to abide without being asked. Failure was to negate the right to be saved or searched for in rescue.

So, in summation, it's SoP to turn up your sensors during a heightened alert level, but you can't really be arrested for it unless command ordains that you absolutely have to. Failure to increase your suit sensors just means that you forfeit any and all priority when people are getting saved, and if you were ordered to up your suit sensors (which command can tell you to on Code Blue or higher) and fail to, then it most certainly means potential brig time if you live through the issue at hand.

So: Code Green: Privacy laws in place, no sensors required.

Code Blue: Should and expected to have some sort of sensors on, but if command sets a must level you have to meet it or go higher. Failure to do so is a charge of Failure to Execute an Order. If command did not set a must level, then failure to have enhanced sensors means forgoing priority during rescue operations.

Code Red: Should and expected to have tracking beacon, but not absolutely required unless command sets the must level at it. Failure to do so is a charge of Failure to Execute an Order (possibly Failure to Execute an Order with Serious Consequences depending on how things shake out). If command did not set a must level, then failure to have enhanced sensors means forgoing priority during rescue operations.


This is the current status quo as I have been able to find it among the corps, but of course Owen can change this. or possibly be aware of a change which I am not and correct me. I'll point him to this thread when he's active again to make sure I didn't muck anything up and that this is true.
