Backup Callout is a plugin for LCPDFR 1.0d, which uses LCPDFR API calls to plug in fluidly into your game.
Its currently all about assisting a primary officer, which has requested dispatch for a additional unit (YOU), to assist him in a high risk and normal traffic stops.
Be careful. These felons don't want to go back to jail.
You will find bugs. You might even crash. It will improve over time.
LEAVE CRASH REPORTS HERE
IF YOU SHOW UP TO THE SCENE AND THE POLICE CAR AND OFFICER ARE NOT THERE, CHANGE YOUR "Els_Range_Pl", and "Els_Range_AI" to 500 or greater. This is just a update to inform users having trouble. 1.20 update soon, this is just a msg update.
Do not upload, redistribute, or modify without permission.

Recent Update Notes :
Update 1.20 added more spawn locations (REFER TO MAP PICTURE UP TOP FOR LOCATIONS), added even more handling and improves to protect from a crash in the event of a bad spawn. Tested and working 100% with LCPDFR 1.0d, and 1.1. Later versions after this one MAY however, require 1.1.. we'll see I want to use some of the new APIs.
Update 1.19 added more polish to the normal traffic stops. Added more protection in the event of a bad spawn (tips from LMS and LtFlash helped a lot in improving this go around). Still going to polish up this one a bit more, should clean itself up 100% of the time without a crash in the event of a bad spawn/fail spawn. No new spawns, just didn't have time.
Update 1.18 [hotfix] The aborts got a little jacked up, I made a mistake. Not if the callout fails to create - it should abort and clean up without throwing a fit on its way out the door. LCPDFR should no longer crash if this callout fails.
Update 1.18 - More spawns! The warzone has been added! (Bohan), different spawn system (not location, but creation of peds), to reduce callout failure. Normal traffic stops added (Still be ready for anything... ;) ), Manager line 169 error shouldn't be a large issue any longer.
Update 1.14 - Worked on protecting the game from having a fatal crash. Still working on the script crashes that are happening. If you are getting a null ref NOT related "GTA IVLCPDFRSVNbranchesLCPDFR Ambient ActionLCPD First ResponseLCPD First ResponseLCPDFRCalloutsCalloutManager.cs:line 169", Feel free to let me know - otherwise if that is in your log, I'm working on correcting this for the next update. 1.14 uploaded again. Only correction was the version when callout plugin, plugins. Forgot to update version. :|
Update 1.09 "HIGHWAY" should see minimal crashing. More spawns added (check map picture). The only goal of this was to make it more stable in terms of the event spawning. There are still some issues with the events themselves (Officer car not despawning properly, minor hangs.)
Update 1.08 "HIGHWAY" is more stable. I've disabled all old method for spawning in the cars. This is a static method. If you are having a lot of trouble with the other versions, TRY THIS. If you are not - there really is no need to upgrade. This is my attempt to discover why it works for some, but not for others. Most stable release, does not features city backups, only highwaycallouts for the BROKER AND DUKES HIGHWAY AREAS. Will not spawn them on the other three islands. South East Main Island Only (game starting location)
Update 0.97 "Disregard the Disregards" edition - Attempts at making more stable, and reducing the chance of a disregard. Light testing on this version.
Reduced chances of fatal crashes by putting more protection in.
Traffic requests happen map wide, city and highway.
4 out comes to the traffic stop - all of which can change based on the random statistics given to the felon on creation.
Assign State or County Police Officers to Highway Traffic stops and assist (Just read the INI for once!)
Idea pool + planned features
Suspect flees on foot
Suspect throws drugs on ground (player must collect)
Improve spawning of city related felon traffic stops (rarely grabs a bad spot)
Add carspawn options (letting players pick which vehicle in a INI spawn as the primary, and officer uniforms.), add stock spawning variety.
Add spawn points for highway traffic stops (current method needs to grow to handle this)
Add non-felon stops, traffic assists for normal infractions
To add, have suspect with drugs chance to flee vehicle and drop drugs. Vehicle can be searched for drugs also (don't just clear the scene!)
Bad spawn location for callout. Poor placement of units (sometimes in buildings) - this will improve more over time.
Forcing a callout back to back can fail to create the police car and officer if it was not yet deleted from memory. I do not force these to be deleted, because I want the suspect car to be there when you get back!
Bad spawning, criminals floating, incorrect position, stuck. This is most likely due to the users computer, I'll be reducing the distance they are created and see if that helps combat this issue. High end rigs / well setup games are rarely reporting this.
Police Officer Car not despawning, but Officer despawning.
Crash (rarely) when aiming at criminal when transition from my script control is given to LCPDFR.
Vehicles fail to spawn and land on ground (being looked into, seems to be the case on slower computers/bogged down computers).
LCPDFR having a issue out of my control and causing a script crash. Been talking with other scripters and have been told this one might be out of my hands. It doesn't do it that often. Its happening on accepted and I'll be investigating I way around it.
Working on a solution for this crash error - "GTA IVLCPDFRSVNbranchesLCPDFR Ambient ActionLCPD First ResponseLCPD First ResponseLCPDFRCalloutsCalloutManager.cs:line 169"
