    Police Department Subdivisions

    Applications for the Los Santos Police Department are open for the first week of every month. 

    Traffic Enforcement Unit

    The primary duty of the Traffic Enforcement Unit is to enforce traffic laws in Los Santos to reduce and help manage traffic collisions while keeping the flow of traffic as fluid as possible. T.E.U focuses in areas of high crash rate and areas of high D.U.I drivers. Speed is a key factor in T.E.U as our response times are unmatchable yet safe to the public. Our main focus is to keep the streets fluid for traffic, reduce D.U.I incidents, and respond to priority vehicle chase situations.

    Port Authority

    The goal of the Los Santos Port Authority is to ensure the safety and well being of all who travel as well as ensuring the safe travel of legitimate commodities is not interrupted or put in danger. Through the use of a specialized team of Los Santos Police Department, we protect and serve the citizens of San Andreas, whether it be by Air, Land or Sea. We support the LSPD in multiple ways such as stated below:

    • Vessel Pursuits

    • Public Transportation Security

    • Airport and Port Security

    • Search and Rescue

    • Evidence Recovery

    Detectives Bureau

    The Detective Bureau is built on detail. We strive to never miss a clue and to cover every open end. The goal of the Bureau is to contain organized crime and ensure the right people are prosecuted for the right case. The duties of the Bureau include reporting and providing assistance of missing persons, theft reports, overseeing our three divisions:

     Fugitive Recovery Task Force (F.R.T.F.)  

    Executes warrants and wanted persons searches

     Security Protection Services Division (S.P.S.D.)

    Responsible for the protection and transport of highly valuable assets and persons during times of high alert

     Covert Operations and Intelligence Division (C.O.I.D.)

    Conducts undercover operations in order to stop illegal activity and criminal enterprises

    Becoming a Detective is a serious role and a privilege, and all Detectives are held to a high standard of professionalism as well as having strict training requirements.

    Vice/Gang Unit

    The Vice Unit was established to increase specialized enforcement of social-order offenses within the Los Santos Metropolitan area. The goal of the unit is to deter street level crimes, ranging from gang activities to high risk operations such as arms trafficking, with the assistance of other divisions within the Los Santos Police Department. While the unit participates in high-risk enforcement, the unit also looks to focus on increasing civic engagement within the community and strengthening relationships between community members and the LSPD.

    Education Division

    The purpose of the PCU is to further train Cadets in the field of law enforcement that was touched upon by their basic DOJ LEO training. We take those lessons that the Cadets were taught in basic training and build/refine it by working with each Cadet to build a lesson plan around their strengths and weaknesses and we in the PCU execute on those plans together with every Cadet as one unit to ensure that by the time the officer reaches the rank of Police Officer I they are prepared for their journey ahead in the LSPD.

    Park Services

    The city of Los Santos is full of beautiful parks, large shopping malls, theaters which entertain hundreds, and historic and meaningful monuments.  With a wide variety of venues within Los Santos the LSPD needs a specialized unit to preserve these landmarks and keep the visiting guest safe. That is the job of the Los Santos Police Department Park Services Division.  The LSPD Park Services Division is responsible for the maintenance, protection, and safety of these landmarks throughout Los Santos. All of our members undergo specialized training in park management, recreation, law enforcement, environmental protection, and first aid.  To assist our team in these operations we use popular LSPD vehicles to move throughout Los Santos to different landmarks and speciality agile equipment to maneuver throughout each venue.

    Canine Division

    The LSPD Canine Division is dedicated to assisting the Los Santos Police Department’s officers and the citizens they protect through the use of canines. We do this by forming a bond between officer and dog like no other. By rigorously training our animals, we are able to harness the raw strength and speed of the canine, and use it to protect officers and citizens, while improving quality of life for all. Our dogs are able to detect and locate a vast variety of things, ranging from people, to substances and objects. This includes narcotics, firearms, explosive devices and human beings to name a few. In the Canine division we are strongly motivated by our morals, values, ethics, and do our best to live up to our motto, “Nowhere to hide.” With further training, we are able to train our service dogs in Search and Rescue as well as Bomb Detection. This provides deeper involvement into searching and apprehending subjects wanted by the police for whatever the reason may be. Overall, we are able to make Los Santos a safer place to live day by day by our implementation of applied tactics and procedure learned through the in-depth training and experience provided by the Los Santos Police Department Canine Division
