Monthly Bulletin - January

Thu Feb 13, 2020 11:20 pm




Throughout the month of January, the City of Los Santos and the Los Santos Police Department witnessed a large number of frauds and scams. There have been numerous warnings issued in Press Releases and this is another one! If you do witness a fraud or become a victim of one, please, do not hesitate to report it to the Investigations Bureau through the crime reports.

On Friday, January 17th 2020, shortly after starting their shift, Police Captain Lewis Langley and Chief of Police Samuel Osborn walked outside the Mission Row precinct and were made aware of a civilian being scammed.

Zeiwa Gueye made a contract with Brianna Scott for the sale of residential address 67 Forum Drive. Brianna Scott was paid $100,000 by Zeiwa Gueye after the contract was signed by both parties. However, Brianna Scott then demanded an additional $50,000 from Zeiwa Gueye after producing a fake key.

LSPD followed Zeiwa Gueye to Los Santos Bank and eventually came into contact with Brianna Scott. After placing Brianna Scott in handcuffs, The Los Santos Police Department Police Officers took Brianna Scott to Mission Row and watched the footage provided by Zeiwa Gueye.

Chief of Police Samuel Osborn issued a ticket of $100,000 to Brianna Scott and contacted the government to arrange the return of the $100,000 illegitimately taken from Zeiwa Gueye, which should be processed within the next 2-5 Business Days.

The contract was made at Mission Row and we have received video evidence of the contract being made. We have recovered the initial footage used to create the fake contract and have decided to share it with the general public with the aim of ensuring that all citizens are not easily fooled! You can access the footage down below.
Preview the footage from the incident.

The LSPD would like to reiterate to all citizens that contracts are very difficult to enforce, we recommend contacting a realtor to handle the sale of any houses.



Each month, One officer is selected by our Police Supervisors to receive this most prestigious award. This award is an overall congratulation for universal commitment, achievement, and excellence throughout the department. An officer who achieves the 'Officer of the Month' award is an exemplary member of the department and someone who should be looked up to as an inspiration and role-model.

This month, the Los Santos Police Department recognizes the hard work and dedication to duty, of Officer Vuk Minkhalimov has demonstrated amazing dedication to the department striving for the best, and pushing to help grow and develop the newest members of the family.

Officer Minkhalimov joined us from Russia; he came from a rough background but has demonstrated great things within the department, and no matter ones history they forge their own destiny. Pushing himself to new limits, he has become a huge asset to our field training program. Vuk has a very small group to thank for his growth but due to the favor of Ania, who took him in during a dark time in his life, this man has grown into one of the departments finest.

With Officer Minkhalimov's history in MD, he has shown that great dedication and commitment puts a person to the highest level possible. We foresee great things and look forward to seeing the shining path that Officer Vuk Minkhalimov lays before the department! Keep it up and see you at the top Officer Minkhalimov!

Officer Vuk Minkhalimov will be rewarded with a bonus payment of $1,000.00 (( $100,000.00 )).

    Advanced Training Division January UpdateShow

    In the month of January, there have been numerous certifications conducted in the Advanced Training Division. Below are the statistics:
    4 Officers Certified in Scene Management Training
    1 Heavy Interception Unit Certifications
    1 Denied Firearms Certifications
    8 Accepted Firearms Certifications
    1 High-Speed Motorcycle Unit Certifications

    The Advanced Training Divison has seen some changes for the month of January. One of these changes is the ability of department supervisors being able to conduct training and certifications that are performed by ATD. After a discussion with the supervisory and command team, we felt this change would help the department as a whole getting our officers trained in skills that would aid them in their duties. The other change is the appointment of Sergeant Zoey Deul as the Commanding Officer over ATD. Thank Officer Tom Brown for his efforts within the division while he was the Commanding Officer and that he will continue his great work as Assistant Commanding Officer of ATD.

    • I would like to thank every officer for their dedicating their time for the division and giving it the best they got over the past month. Our officers have proven themselves in every situation they go through. Traffic Enforcement Division was and will remain to enforce traffic laws heavily.

    Brief Update

    • This month we carried and taken the bait-car operation to a whole new level. This operation was able to bring down multiple wanted felons and clear the ill-willed people off the street so far with the help of the Investigations Bureau. The operation was a huge success as we ran it multiple times with a great outcome. Multiple suspects were arrested, thanks to the efforts of our officers and the help of other divisions.
    • With the recently agreed on terms between the City Hall and Los Santos Police Department's Traffic Enforcement Division to help them organize events around the city. We have helped the city hall in a couple of events, mainly car meets and drifting competitions. The City Hall official Inori Komatsu was there for us as well when needed.

    Personnel Changes

    • This month we have witnessed a lot of changes in our roster. We didn't have many officers leaving the division except for the departmental resignations. However, we have had a lot of inner personnel changes.

      We had a couple of changes in our Command position, most importantly, the return of two previous CO's; Captain Marco Davis & Sergeant Mary Dinkley. With their return, I hope that we will be able to push the division into more exciting moments and memories to save.

    Special Weapons and Tactics Division Update - December 2019
    • Division Update

      • Hello Operatives,
        Another month has passed in Los Santos, and the SWAT division still moves forward. This month saw the introduction of new equipment which has already been used in training and live situations to great effect. The Handbook also received new updates to our tactical readiness and numerous trainings have been conducted to solidify the new tactics that are constantly in development.

        SWAT also worked closely with the San Andreas Department of Corrections to solidify a working relationship between the SWAT Division and CERT personnel. Joint training was conducted this month to introduce new tactics and standard operating procedure that both departments now use when working in tandem.

        SWAT also welcomed a large number of operatives to the division, both new and old, having completed the last recruitment drive. Reinstatements and fresh candidates to the Probationary program have filled out the SWAT ranks to a satisfactory level. We're looking forward to their contributions to the division.
    • Division Statistics

    • This month saw a total of 58 active deployments. This means SWAT deploys on average 1.87 times per day in full gear to respond to extreme situations. SWAT has also increased the number of David patrols, meaning units in the field are often supported by a unit with SWAT members to respond to active situations and dramatically reduce the response time to dangerous scenarios.

      • Stan Foxx > Senior Operative
      • Arnold Williams > Operative
