Option 1: 

“Nuclear Tide: Crisis in Port Lysandra”


In the fictional coastal town of Port Lysandra, renowned for its bustling marina and fleet of lavish super-yachts, a sudden bout of torrential rain has resulted in an unforeseen flood risk. The local law enforcement agency, the Lysandra Constabulary, is faced with an unparalleled crisis.

The flood is expected to hit in 48 hours, and the marina’s high-water mark reaches the raised foundation of the nearby nuclear power plant, bringing an added layer of potential disaster to the situation. With this flood, there’s a risk of a surge shorting the power plant’s system, causing a nuclear meltdown. Lysandra Constabulary must deal with the escalating tension between the power plant operators, the harbourmaster’s office, and the affluent marina residents, none of whom are inclined to see reason or cooperate.

Additionally, the flood may shift the moorings of yachts and carry potentially hazardous material into the plant’s vicinity, thereby exacerbating the risk. This exercise will test the Lysandra Constabulary team’s ability to negotiate under pressure, coordinate a large-scale evacuation, and manage the potential threat of a nuclear disaster simultaneously.

Aims and Objectives:

1. To formulate a robust, coordinated response strategy to evacuate the marina and the surrounding areas in a structured and efficient manner, prioritising residents and personnel’s safety.

2. To negotiate effectively with the power plant operators, the harbourmaster’s office, and the marina residents, securing their cooperation and managing the crisis, despite their conflicting interests and fears.

3. To implement an effective risk mitigation strategy to prevent the potential threat of a nuclear meltdown, which may involve liaising with expert teams and coordinating a safe and effective response.


Option 2: 

“The Tempestuous Tale of the Storm Queen”


In the shadowy underbelly of the fictional city of Solntseva-on-Marina, the Marina Law Enforcement Agency (MLEA), an underground and operative law enforcement body, grapples with the imminent danger of an unprecedented deluge. For years, rumours have circulated about the century-old Storm Queen, a mythical sea creature that has the power to cast catastrophic floods. In recent weeks, local seamen and fishermen have reported unusual aquatic patterns and disturbances that are eerily reminiscent of the ancient tales of the Storm Queen returning. The MLEA, known for dealing with peculiar cases, now faces a challenging crime scene – a drowned sailor bearing the Storm Queen’s mark.

As the flood warnings escalate, the renowned Solntseva Marina, a bustling hub of trade and tourism, is positioned as the epicentre of the impending doom. Participants are tasked with strategising a dynamic response to the maritime disaster on two fronts – the mystery of the Storm Queen, and the threat of a devastating flood set to engulf the city. As the storm looms, the MLEA will have to navigate a web of treacherous tidal patterns, cryptic sailor lore, and ancient maritime secrets while protecting the city and its denizens.

-Aims and objectives

1. Develop a strategic and systematic approach to crisis management within the MLEA, integrating the investigative demand of a mysterious marine criminal case, with the logistic, operational, and humanitarian aspects of the impending flood crisis.

2. Enhance the MLEA’s capacity to maintain law and order amidst the ensuing chaos, ensuring the city’s security while effectively communicating with the city’s inhabitants about the dangers of the flood and the necessary safety measures.

3. Foster an understanding of the complex relationship between folklore, maritime culture, environment, and law enforcement, thereby promoting the MLEA’s ability to handle unconventional cases that lie at this intersection.


Option 3: 

– The Crimson Tempest: A Flood of Chaos

– Scenario

The Harmony Bay Law Enforcement Organisation, a respected and prestigious agency, operates within a bustling coastal town named Harmony Bay, known for its luxurious marina and vibrant waterfront activities. The town is a hodgepodge of grand yachts, charming local fisherman boats, waterfront properties, and bustling tourist attractions – making it a prime location for potential flood-related threats. The grandeur of the town is in contrast to its vulnerability to natural calamities and sudden shifts in the weather pattern. As tidal fluctuations increase due to global warming, the Bay now faces an unprecedented challenge.

A catastrophic flood risk looms as a result of an unusually high tide coinciding with an advancing cyclonic storm – the Crimson Tempest. The predicted surge would engulf the marina and the low-lying town areas, posing a severe threat to people’s safety, property, and the local economy. In addition to this imminent flood risk, a confidential source has revealed that a known criminal, Felix ‘The Phantom’ Nautica, operating under the alias Jude Mariner, has taken advantage of the situation and concealed a critical hostage within the labyrinth of the marina. The threat has many layers, and the decisions made by Harmony’s Law Enforcement will have rippling effects throughout the community.

– Aims and Objectives

1. To formulate a strategic flood response plan that minimises damage to property, prevents loss of life, and ensures the safety of law enforcement personnel while addressing the flood risk.

2. To design a search and rescue operation to locate and ensure the safety of the hostage held by the criminal, Felix ‘The Phantom’ Nautica, amidst the challenging flood scenario.

3. To utilise communication and teamwork skills effectively to coordinate with relevant local agencies, marina staff, and the community to execute the response strategy while maintaining law and order during the crisis.
