Main Building of LSPD

The Los Santos Police Department (LSPD) is a branch of the San Andreas Police Department servicing the city of Los Santos. They are modeled after the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), and are a prominent part of the storyline in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The department's headquarters sit adjacent to Los Santos City Hall in the Pershing Square district of Los Santos, San Andreas. This is where the player re-spawns after being arrested anywhere within Los Santos city limits.

The LSPD houses a branch known as C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums, based on a real-life anti-gang branch of the LAPD), of which officers Frank Tenpenny, Eddie Pulaski, and Jimmy Hernandez are members. Tenpenny and Pulaski also represent the main antagonistic element throughout the game's entire storyline, and use their authority as LSPD officers to achieve their sinister ends.

There is also another Central of the Los Santos Police Department, located in Dillimore, Red County. It is smaller than the LSPD located in Pershing Square. If you get Busted in Red County, you appear in the LSPD of Pershing Square. This means that the LSPD in Red County is uncharged of all the small towns in the Red County.

Police Brutality

In the garages of the Los Santos Police Department in Pershing Square, the player can witness police brutality.

Easter Egg

If you look closely at a cop's badge in Los Santos, it looks like Pac-Man.


The LSPD seems to host the only SWAT team in San Andreas as the Enforcers that appear when the player has a 4-star wanted level have LSPD markings on them regardless of the players location.
