SAFETY | SERVICE | SECURITY
The Great State Of
It is the mission of the San Andreas State Police to provide security and safety to members of the public throughout San Andreas, ensuring that the welfare of its inhabitants is our upmost concern. It is our sworn duty to leave no path unexplored, leave no heights untouched and leave no highway unpatrolled. We are the thin line between our citizens and the dangers they bring to not only themselves but to others and it is with our training and efficiency that we grow forever stronger in their hearts and minds, a familiar face when the path is uncertain, a hand to hold when times are rough. It is with great certainty that when they call, we pick up the phone and we fulfill our purpose as Troopers and serve them with pride, dignity, and respect.
That when they are in a time of need, they call upon us, the San Andreas State Police.
What We Expect
In the past, it can safely be said that the SASP has held some of the best records in history, in terms of training, activity and all-around professionalism. A long-time has passed since the glory days of simplicity and basic service and it is our hope that with the ever-evolving times, the department may maintain it's long-held status.
We at the San Andreas State Police expect nothing less than dedication, professionalism, resilience, courage, and teamwork for all our officers, from those applying for the department or undertaking the academy all the way up to the Administration Staff - These values are consistent throughout the department and are the building blocks for a hard-working and committed Officer.
The San Andreas State Police has 4 active subdivisions. Those 4 being Air & Costal Operations, Traffic Service Unit, Criminal Investigations Division, and Game Warden. Each of the four play a vital role in the SASP, and hold their own individual purpose and usage.
