  1. LOS SANTOS POLICE DEPARTMENT Statement on the Conclusion of LSIA Incident Investigation - 18/APR/2020 The Los Santos Police Department wishes to inform the citizens of Los Santos of the conclusion of the investigation into the 12th of April incident by the Office of the Chief of Police and the Internal Affairs Group. Following a thorough investigation, which included questioning the officers involved and witnesses present on the scene, the Internal Affairs Group was able to uncover the following facts: Following the incident, all involved officers were placed immediately on administrative leave prior to their interviews. Both Officers Muller and Daniels resigned from their positions immediately after their interviews with the Internal Affairs Group had been concluded. The other 7 officers involved were given suspensions without pay, letters of reprimand or admonishment depending on their relative position and seniority in the department, and their involvement in the incident in question. The Los Santos Police Department's Internal Affairs Group has, following discussion with the Los Santos District Attorney's Office, decided not to pursue charges on Officers Muller and Daniels for their involvement in this matter. Both officers Muller and Daniels cited they initiated the event to prevent more street racing taking place that night, as according to them in their field experience dispersing the event would have only led to the street racers moving into the mountains above Los Santos in and around the observatory where their high speed vehicles would make it more difficult to effectively police them. Although the officers' claim to have had good intentions, the department does not condone unlawful activities by its own officers, whatever the cause or intent. The Department, as per the last statement published on this matter, will continue to attempt to work with these groups through open and legal channels in an effort to organize their community in a safe way that can be officially condoned. I would like to thank my colleague in the Sheriffs Department for his words of wisdom. We are here to keep the community safe and no incident, not even one like this, undermines our devotion to that mission. We will continue to work with you, the community, to make our city a safer place. God bless you and the City of Los Santos, Chief of Police Charles Hughes Chief of Department Los Santos Police Department Comments are disabled for this Press Release.
  2. LOS SANTOS POLICE DEPARTMENT . Statement on Unsanctioned LSPD Event - 13/APR/2020 The Los Santos Police Department has taken note of the unsanctioned event that took place on the night of the 12th of April 2020 at the Los Santos International Airport. Following information and evidence received from sources present at the event, a total of nine active serving police officers have been put on administrative leave by the department. The Internal Affairs Group will take its time in the next few days to interview these officers regarding their involvement and subsequently either clear them from the investigation, issue internal disciplinary action or file criminal charges against them if reason for any of the aforementioned is found.Although the Los Santos Police Department aims to provide a place for all members of the community to practice their hobbies safely, the department does not condone doing so in violation of other's rights or without following the rules and laws in place. The office of the Chief of Police and by extent the department wishes to apologize profusely to anyone that was impacted by what took place. Although there is no doubt that the officers in their minds acted with the right intentions to defuse a potentially volatile situation, the Los Santos Police Department does not condone, in doing so, breaking the laws that are set in place to give every part of our community the opportunity to host events to practice their hobbies, beliefs or other rights that have been afforded to them.Serving this community is our priority, but we must do so from a position of absolute integrity. It would be unamerican of us to ask this of you without being willing to lead by example. I, therefore, promise you that if it is found through an internal investigation that any of my officers acted outside of the law, they will be punished according to the laws we all vow to uphold.While the investigation is taking place, the Office of the Chief of Police has tasked the Media Relations and Community Affairs Division with reaching out to tournament organizers within the racing community to evaluate what can be done to provide better guidance and opportunities for them. A major part of ensuring something like this never happens again is creating more officially sanctioned and organized events so they may take place instead of unsanctioned street races to provide a way for those interested to practice their hobbies in a safe and controlled environment.The Office of the Chief of Police remains available to answer any questions regarding the event. We cannot, however, provide any information in regards to our internal investigation, as it is in the very early stages at this point in time.Chief of Police Charles HughesChief of DepartmentLos Santos Police Department Comments are disabled for this press release.

Photo courtesy of Sergeant II Natalia Florence aboard LSPD AIR-1 Statement Regarding Home Invasion and Fatal Officer Involved Shooting, Sandy Shores - 30/MAR/2019 The Los Santos Police Department is currently investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred late in the evening on March 30th, 2019 at around 4:00am in the Sandy Shores area of Los Santos County. While we are still in the early stages of this investigation we do not draw any conclusions until all evidence has been thoroughly investigated and all witnesses have been questioned. The purpose of this statement is to inform the community about a critical incident that occurred.Units of the Los Santos Police Department responded to a house alarm for a residence in central Sandy Shores within Los Santos County outside of city limits. Upon arrival to the scene officers found a black van parked near the front entrance of the residence, and the alarm still sounding from the home. As officers waited for more units and a team from the Metropolitan Division to respond a single suspect exited the home. Officers attempted to detain the suspect but were informed that hostages were inside the residence and told to leave the area before the male rushed back inside.For the next ten minutes units responded and set up a perimeter around the home while preparing to establish contact with the suspects inside. Before contact could be made the same male suspect exited the home with another suspect dressed in all black. They made demands to be let go or a hostage was going to be harmed. At this point no hostages had been confirmed by officers. A third suspect exited the residence to join the previous two and began to make their way to the nearby black van. Before officers could defuse the situation a fourth suspect burst from the residence and rushed towards the officer's perimeter with a firearm in his hand. Officers opened fire on the armed suspect while the remaining three fled the scene in the black van.Officers remained on scene to secure the home and the down suspect while the vehicle was pursued by an LSPD AIR unit, and members of the Metropolitan Division. The down suspect was secured and found to be in possession of an illegal firearm, several magazines of ammunition and a switchblade. Officers attempted to provide aid to the suspect but could not retrieve any signs of life before LSFD could be notified. The suspect was pronounced dead on the scene. While officers remaining in Sandy Shores cleared the residence members of the Metropolitan division aided by AIR pursued the remaining suspects throughout Los Santos County and back into the city. The van came to a stop in the Rancho area where all three suspects made their way into an open residence and took refuge inside. As a second perimeter was established two of the remaining suspects fled from the house and made their way through the back streets and into the industrial areas of southern Los Santos. Visual of these suspects was lost and they are still at large. The final suspect was taken into custody by members of the Los Santos Police Department's Metropolitan Division.The Los Santos Police Department will continue to investigate and monitor this situation as more information becomes available.Police Officer III Eleanor Jäger MRCAD Officer Media Relations and Community Affairs Division
  4. Statement Regarding Fatal Officer Involved Shooting, Vinewood Hills - 28/MAR/2019 The Los Santos Police Department is currently investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred late in the evening on March 28th, 2019 at around 9:00pm in the Vinewood Hills area of Los Santos. While we are still in the early stages of this investigation we do not draw any conclusions until all evidence has been thoroughly investigated and all witnesses have been questioned. The purpose of this statement is to inform the community about a critical incident that occurred.While on patrol at around 9:00pm in the area of Rockford Hills in the city of Los Santos a unit from the Los Santos Police Department's Metropolitan Division initiated a pursuit on a light blue rental vehicle. The suspect vehicle failed to yield to the unit's lights and sirens or directions to pull over. Soon after the driver of the suspect vehicle opened fire on the pursuing officers. As the pursuit lead into the Pacific Bluffs area of Los Santos the driver abandoned the vehicle on a footpath near the City Hall and continue to flee from officer on foot.At this point visual contact on the suspect was lost, and members of the Metropolitan Division's K-9 Platoon were called to attempt to re-establish contact. After gaining the suspect's scent from his abandoned vehicle the K-9s and Officers set out on a near twenty minute hunt on foot through the Vinewood Hills. K-9s were able to lead officers to the location of the suspect who was hiding in some brush along the hillside near some residences. Officers then attempted to make contact with the suspect and order him to surrender himself. The suspect stepped out of his concealment and then opened fire on the officers once again. Officers returned fire and managed to incapacitate the suspect with lethal force. At this point officers on scene moved to secure the suspect and provide aid for his sustained injuries. The LSFD was called to assist with stabilizing the suspect, however they were unsuccessful and the suspect was pronounced dead on the scene by medical personnel.At this time the LSPD can confirm that the suspect was a former civilian employee for the department. During employment the suspect had served in a non-law enforcement role and had no access to firearms, or training prior to this incident. It should be noted that the suspect was not an employee of the department at the time of this incident and had terminated his employment prior to the events of this evening. It is unknown at this time if the incident had any involvement with the suspects prior employment for the department. The Los Santos Police Department will continue to investigate and monitor this situation as more information becomes available.Police Officer III Eleanor Jäger MRCAD Officer Media Relations and Community Affairs Division

  7. LOS SANTOS POLICE DEPARTMENT INTRODUCTION The Los Santos Police Department is the largest and longest-standing law enforcement faction on GTA:World, having existed since the server’s inception in 2017. We aim to offer an authentic Law Enforcement Officer roleplay experience, with our faction constantly improving and updating to bring us in-line with our real-life counterpart whilst maintaining a balance with the server and game. We are always looking for players who want to help us develop the faction further, so if you’re interested please see our recruitment topic on the LSPD forums, made available further down in this thread. HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT The Los Santos Police Department was founded in 1853 during the San Andreas Gold Rush and consisted primarily of a voluntary militia. Due to its location, San Andreas was known for violence with Los Santos becoming one of the most dangerous cities in the United States for several years during this period. The militia group, known as the ‘San Andreas Rangers’ eventually formed the first paid police force when they were merged with another militia company, the Los Santos City Guards, in 1869. The next twenty years would be a turbulent period that saw a total of fifteen Police Chiefs occupy the leadership role until Police Chief William C. Rockford took office and held the position for ten years - overseeing sweeping reforms that turned the department into a cohesive Law Enforcement Agency. The next 100 years for the department saw it grow into the large, municipal department that it is today. In 1911 the first female officer was sworn into service, three years before the outbreak of World War I; and during both world wars, the department suffered a decrease in manpower as officers were called to serve in the armed forces. In the post-war periods, there was an increase in corruption within the department that anti-corruption teams spent the next decades trying to eradicate, accentuated by the Bloody Easter scandal in 1952 that brought the issue of police brutality to the forefront. Pictured: LSPD Rifle Team, 1890 As one of the largest police departments in the country, the Los Santos Police Department was affected by almost every major event in the 20th Century that involved the country. With these events, the department grew and adapted, sometimes for the better, sometimes not so much. Some key events that shaped the department have been selected below. More will be added in the future. Downtown Vinewood Shootout On February 28th 1997, the Los Santos Police Department responded to a bank robbery that would set in motion major changes within the Department. Using body armour and a variety of high-calibre weapons, Garry Phelps Jr. and his accomplice Emilio Materasu attempted to steal a large sum of money from the vaults at the Pacific Standard Public Deposit Bank on Vinewood Boulevard. Officers arriving on the scene reported hearing gunfire from inside the bank and requested additional backup whilst holding the perimeter. Shortly before 0930, Phelps exited the building from the north side and immediately opened fire on nearby officers - wounding several officers and civilians, as well as forcing the LSPD’s helicopter to fall back before retreating inside again. Shortly afterwards, Materasu exited the building alongside him and engaged officers with automatic gunfire. The officers, who were armed with their standard-issue 9mm or .38 calibre weapons, were unable to penetrate the body armour worn by the suspects, and due to a combination of range and the suppression from automatic fire, were also unable to land shots to their unprotected heads. It wasn’t until the second ‘officer down’ call that the LSPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics was notified by dispatchers and requested on scene. Both Phelps and Materasu were able to regroup at their getaway vehicle, although Materasu was injured and forced to abandon the duffel bag of money and focus on starting the getaway vehicle. Phelps was also injured by officers when their gunfire struck his HK-91 rifle, forcing him to drop it and remove a new rifle from the vehicle. Materasu moved slowly through the parking lot at the rear as Phelps engaged officers whilst using the vehicle as cover. Once they reached the road, Phelps broke from the vehicle and proceeded to flee down the sidewalk on foot whilst Materasu drove down Clinton Avenue - forcing the officers on the northeastern side to fall back due to overwhelming fire. Phelps, at this point heading eastward on Clinton Avenue, continued firing his rifle at officers until it jammed just after the intersection with Power Street. Unable to clear the jam, Phelps discarded the rifle and drew his last remaining firearm - a Beretta 92FS and continued to engage officers. He was eventually hit in his right arm, forcing him to drop the pistol before retrieving it and turning it on himself. Officers continued to shoot at Phelps’ body for several seconds afterwards. Materasu, having continued to drive down Clinton Avenue, was halted when his vehicle was disabled by gunfire. He attempted to carjack a pickup truck he had blocked in the road, however, a SWAT team used a marked cruiser to approach the vehicle and block it in. The team exchanged close range fire with Materasu for a full two minutes before hitting him in his unprotected lower legs and forcing him to surrender. SWAT officers moved in to secure Materasu, pinning him down and handcuffing him. Materasu, having been heavily wounded, died from exsanguination before EMTs could be cleared into the scene to assist him. In the aftermath of the incident, the US Government began to approve the arming of regular patrol officers. In the LSPD, this saw the introduction of the AR-15 under the designation of the ‘Urban Patrol Rifle’. This rifle would be made available to regular patrol officers who passed the certification and not just to the LSPD’s Metropolitan Division. In addition to this, use of .45 calibre semi-automatic pistols were authorised for officers in the Department - with many opting to utilise the Smith & Wesson Models 4506 and 4566. CRASH & The Mission Row Scandal Originally formed as TRASH (Total Resources Against Street Hoodlums) in the early 1970s as part of Mission Row Area’s effort to combat the growing problem of street gangs, the name was changed to replace ‘Total’ with ‘Community’ due to complaints from the public that the acronym harmed the image of the youths joining the targeted gangs. CRASH, as it was now known, became a success and was expanded department-wide, with every division having its own CRASH unit operating from the station. The Mission Row Scandal happened in 1998 when Officer Luca Morales, a senior officer within Mission Row’s CRASH unit, was arrested following a lengthy internal investigation by detectives into corruption within the unit. The original investigation began after a sizable amount of cocaine was found to be missing from the station’s evidence locker and the evidence clerk involved with the removal was able to identify Morales as the one who signed it out due to his rude behaviour during the incident. In exchange for immunity against the majority of his crimes, Morales offered information and testimony to detectives that led to the investigation of a further 50+ officers. Pictured: Mission Row Community Police Station Morales’ testimony revealed a large number of officers that he claimed were ‘in the loop’ - a phrase used to describe an officer who was part of the ‘CRASH Culture’ which involved fabricating reports and probable cause, planting evidence, shooting unarmed suspects and planting weapons to justify their use of force, and sometimes even taking part in gang violence. One of the most notable incidents is a shooting in which Morales and his partner Wyatt Raines, a transfer from Vepucci’s CRASH unit that Morales had ‘sponsored’ due to their wives’ friendship, shot the unarmed Jose Oviedo in his home, before planting a weapon on him. Oviedo, then a member of a prominent street gang, was sentenced to 23 years in prison and was released following Morales’ testimony, eventually receiving $15 Million in damages - the largest police misconduct settlement in Los Santos’ history. In early 2000 CRASH was officially disbanded after slowly being diminished due to the Mission Row Scandal. The Gangs & Narcotics Division was created to replace it, with the requirements for entry being higher than CRASH and the officer requiring a high amount of experience, cleaner disciplinary record and low number of personnel complaints.

The Gangs & Narcotics Division was created to replace it, with the requirements for entry being higher than CRASH and the officer requiring a high amount of experience, cleaner disciplinary record and low number of personnel complaints. Recent Events & Additions to Our History Future additions and amendments will be made to the history section as we flesh out the past of our faction so that we can use it to shape our future roleplay. Faction History The current iteration of the LSPD faction started when Peter Raymond became Chief of Department following a merger with the Sheriffs Department faction. He was assisted by Deputy Chief Elena Villarreal - the latter of which took over the role of Chief in August 2018 under the name Stanley Morrison. Under Morrison’s leadership, the LSPD faction began to flourish and most of the foundation of the faction as it is today was built. After a full year in the position, Stanley Morrison stepped down and was succeeded by Charles Hughes. Under Hughes, the faction has undergone some of it’s most drastic changes, all with the aim of creating a more realistic, more enjoyable faction for everyone. With focus on community interaction (both IC and OOC), and sticking to our core values as both a department and as a faction, the LSPD has now grown to numbers never before seen - and we hope that it will continue into the foreseeable future. OUR ETHOS & CORE VALUES Courtesy This is arguably a core value of the server and not just our faction, but we strive to exemplify it in our faction members/officers. Whether it’s offering directions or assistance to citizens in the server or being considerate to OOC situations that may affect other players; our faction members should always strive to help. Professionalism Once again we follow this core value both IC and OOC. As LEO roleplayers, we want to emulate the professionalism of our real-world counterparts as best we can. The faction/department has extensive self-checking and disciplinary procedures that help us make sure that our players/officers are behaving to the standard that we expect of them. Faction Leadership has always been clear that complaints regarding players/officers are handled seriously and encourages anyone with issues to report them lest they go unchallenged. We are proud of the level of professionalism in our players/officers and believe that our faction is one of the strongest in terms of this within the GTA V roleplay community. Respect Both IC or OOC, we respect the community and its citizens/players. As a Law Enforcement Agency, we aim to accurately portray our care and commitment to the city and its citizens - but this also transitions into the real world. As the biggest faction on the server, we are especially conscious to listen to the feedback of community members on how the faction operates. The Faction Leadership often engage in conversations with other faction leaders, both legal and illegal, on how to improve the faction for the benefit of everyone, and our regular players can always be seen discussing things and helping players on the forums and discord. We do not condone the attitude that the LSPD faction is better because it’s law enforcement and/or bigger, and will always fight to improve things for the benefit of all players, not just our own.
