Los Santos County Sheriff's Department

Sheriff Patrick Machado

Est. 1850

"A Tradition of Service"


Faction Foreword


(( The Los Santos County Sheriff's Department is a faction loosely based off of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, that seeks to emulates the often-overlooked facets of American Law Enforcement.


The primary emphasis in membership with this faction is character development through realistic roleplay & portrayal, with a high standard to ensure quality retention. Further, it is imperative for one to understand that this faction seeks to improve the quality of the server's criminal justice atmosphere - by providing services directly related, or affiliated to items such as court services, civil process, warrants, detention & custody through the county jail, inmate services, and much more.


We hope to establish a long & productive partnership with all members of the GTAW roleplay community, and shall always strive to maintain a constant dialogue through the efforts of this faction. ))




The Los Santos Sheriff's Department was established in 1850 shortly after the Mexican-American War. After the founding of the independent San Andreas Republic and the voluntary annexation by the United States, law enforcement was subsumed under the Los Santos Rangers (which became the Los Santos Police Department) and the Los Santos Sheriff.


The "frontier era" of Los Santos saw the worst era of organized crime in the county, as the gold rush brought a massive population explosion and crime. The Union Pacific Railroad Company brought another explosion, and it caused a string of 15 Sheriffs, several of which were killed in gunfights, to enter a veritable revolving door. Up until after the civil war, the Sheriff's Department consisted of the Sheriff and cronies as deputies.


In the early 1900s, the Sheriff's Department officially became an actual institution of permanent individuals rather than the Sheriff and his posse. It was not until 1930 when deputies formally adopted uniforms and jails were administered by the Sheriff's Department. During the 1930s, the Sheriff's Department assisted the Los Santos Police Department in the "red squad" era, notably attacking the Socialist Party of America and breaking up union-organized events.


In 1947, the Sheriff's Department hired the first female Deputy Sheriff within the nation.


The 1950s to the 1970s saw the most turbulent era of operation within the Sheriff's Department, especially during the infamous 1961 Davis Race Riots. The Sheriff's Department assisted the LSPD in quelling the large-scale civil unrest, but it was one of the most massive events of the era up until the 1992 Jim Queen riots.


Former Sheriff Peter "Pico" Collins headed the department from 2009 until his downfall in 2017. During Collins' reign corruption was rampant and close-knight deputy gangs were prominent. Within the ranks of the county's finest were individuals keen to oppress less fortunate individuals in the county jail system and rural towns. Following whistle-blower tips, an ACLU lawsuit brought down the Sheriff after the FBI took interest as part of their public corruption mandate. Pico and his Undersheriff were both sentenced to federal prison.


Following a brief hiatus mandated by the Federal Department of Justice, Patrick Machado won the seat as Los Santos County Sheriff after a special election was held. Almost immediately after swearing into office, Sheriff Machado ordered the re-opening of the Twin Towers Los Santos County Jail to massively aid the growing overcrowding issue of the region's detention facilities.



Ancillary to traditional American Counties, the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department operates a number of facets subordinate to Criminal Justice. 



Operating from the Los Santos County Jail, or 'Twin Towers Correctional Facility', the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department provides detention services to the county & its' affiliated Criminal Justice entities. Both pretrial detainees & convicted persons are housed within the Los Santos County Jail. 


Court Services

Subordinate to the Los Santos area Judicial Circuit, Deputies of the Sheriff's Department service the constituency of Los Santos County through criminal warrants, civil process & papers, transportation, and much more at the behest of the Courts.


Uniformed Patrol

Primarily servicing the unincorporated zones of Los Santos County, the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department operates a Uniformed Patrol component for the purposes of crime prevention & interdiction, preserving the peace, property, safety, and quality of life for citizens within the County. 



Twin Towers Correctional Facility

The Twin Towers Correctional Facility, also known as the Twin Towers Jail, is the primary facility for all individuals initially processed within Los Santos County. The facility is 1.5 million square feet and opened in 1997, making it one of the most modern facilities the Los Santos Sheriff's Department operates. After the North Los Santos Earthquake damaged the Halls of Justice, the project for a new county jail facility was started. Alongside the Men's Central Jail facility in downtown Los Santos, the facility ranked as one of the ten worst jails within the United States by national magazines. The jail is utterly overcrowded due to state-wide mandates for court reorganizations, with many state prisoners staying in the jail system for prolonged periods of time while awaiting trial, release, or processing. The jail functions both as a pre-trial facility and state prison, as many inmates abuse the courts to stay in jail rather than enter the SADCR institutions. "Twin Towers and Men's Central are overflowing with prisoners transferred there from overcrowded San Andreas prisons under the state's court-ordered reorganization scheme. Eyewitnesses, including several prison chaplains, have reported that attacks by deputies at the twin facilities are often unprovoked or brought on by the slightest infractions. Additional deputies often pile on, sometimes after being alerted to the action on their walkie-talkies." "The report includes an anecdote, for instance, in which a prisoner who sustains multiple injuries in such an attack, is allegedly paraded naked down a jail module as a deputy yells 'gay boy walking,' placed in a cell, and beaten and raped by other inmates as deputies stand by."



Sandy Shores Station

Operating in tandem with the Paleto Bay Sheriff Station, Sandy Shores serves as the headquarters for the North Patrol Division of the Sheriff's Department.

Greetings, and welcome. As aforementioned, we hope for a long & prosperous tenure with the community, and look forward to interacting with the playerbase as time goes along.


This faction has been in the works for almost 6 months now - with modders, scripters, content creators & administration alike all working hard to ensure that this implementation is built to last, and creates a better environment for the playerbase as a whole. We would like to thank the hardwork & patience of all of those involved, to include members no longer with the project. Thank you for all you have done for us!

Registration to participate in the inmate forums is open on the faction forum. If you're interested in roleplaying long-term sentences or as a prison gangmember, we'd love to hear your opinions.
