Welcome to this useful guide for Deputy Sheriff Generalists and Deputies, as well for the public that is wishing to learn more about the Pursuit Policy. This policy will be used in the future by everyonewhom is serving the San Andreas Sheriff's Department.


• In emergency situations, the individual driving an emergency vehicle is exempt from the rules of the road - This authorization does not mean that you shouldn't care for the public's safety. Always take note of the pedestrians and fellow motorists.
• When responding to an emergency or participating in a pursuit that is located in a highly populated area, lights and sirens shall be used.
• When responding to an emergency or participating in a pursuit that is located in a mildly populated area, you are only required to respond with lights(turn the siren off). Whenever you enter a populated area you shall turn on the sirens once again.
• If the situation requires you to use lethal force in order to stop a suspect, you must ask a member of the high command team, which is Sergeant or above. If no Sergeant or above is available to respond to your request, a Corporal or Senior officer may grant you permission.
• Lethal force in a pursuit, may never be used in highly populated areas. This method is only advised to be used in the county or on a highway.
• The PIT maneuver is only advised to be used in low populated areas, never PIT a suspect in areas such as Idlewood, as you risk the lives of pedestrians when doing so.
• Whenever you're in a pursuit, you're required to stay observational and pay good attention to your surroundings.
• Do not overtake in a pursuit and keep the formation as a STRAIGHT LINE. If you ever need to overtake another cruiser, advise them over your radio. (If unavailable due to no mic, simply don't overtake)
• Never ram a suspects' vehicle directly as you're causing unnecessary damage to the cruiser, as well as endangering the life of you and your partner.

When initiating the pursuit;

To circumvent the likelihood of a pursuit starting, Deputies are advised to be as close to the suspect when attempting to pull them over. When the situation demonstrate high potential for an pursuit, e.g., BOLO vehicle, extreme careless driver, high-profile suspect, Officers shall determine the estimated time of arrival(ETA) of another Alpha or Charlie unit, and if tactically possible, make them conduct the traffic stop.

Consideration when pursuing a fleeing vehicle;

Law Enforcement Officers pursuing a fleeing vehicle has to put a lot of seriousness and consideration of the potential damage against themselves or the community. It is important to consider the following factors when pursuing a vehicle;
• Whether it's reasonable to risk the lives of the pedestrians, pursuing officers and occupants in the fleeing vehicle.
• If the speed of the fleeing vehicle is unreasonable compromised with the safety of the pedestrians and community.
• The traffic conditions which includes the following; Vehicle density, pedestrian density and road conditions.
• General density of the area where the pursuit is taking place.
• Whether the suspect can be apprehended at a later time; if yes, conclude the pursuit and apprehend the suspect later. This may only be done if the road conditions and area density is too bad - And only if the suspect can be found later on.
• The seriousness of the crime related to the publics' safety.

Tracking a vehicle;

Read regulations. Officers are never allowed to break the rules of the road in a pursuit, it of course depends on the code of the pursuit. If Code 3 or 0 officers are exempt from the road laws, but still need to proceed with caution.

Air-response and their duties in a pursuit;

Whenever you're in a pursuit with a vehicle exceeding the speed of the standard cruiser, it's advised to request air-support. When air-support arrived it's duty is to keep track of the vehicle and cruisers may resume their Code 3 response, but with slightly reduced speed. The air-support unit shall also advise ground units in tracking and interfering routes.

General tactics when pursuing a vehicle;

During the pursuit officers are required to pay attention to their surroundings and actions of the pursuing vehicle, thereafter change tactic or position. When a pursuit is happening, the whole department is not needed to apprehend the suspect, and the pursuit is only for the primary, secondary and supervising unit. Other patrol units shall stay alert on the location and status of the pursuit, and await further back-up requests. It is also required to stay in a straight-line formation when pursuing the vehicle.


If a unit collides or spin-out resulting in a temporarily immobilization the unit shall no rejoin the pursuit. Instead, remain stationary and let other cruisers pass by, once it's safe you can rejoin the pursuit. (All heavy crashes NEEDS to be RP'd!)

When a suspect is lost;

Whenever a suspect is lost the primary unit or supervising unit of the pursuit, shall immediately issue a BOLO or ABP if possible.

Vehicle intervention techniques

PIT(Pursuit Intervention Technique);

This is the method that is used primarily by the cruisers. The PIT technique is when the Deputy swerves his vehicle in front of the suspect's vehicle, causing it to spin out and stop completely. Read over the regulations before using the PIT maneuver.


The box maneuver is designed to decline suspects' their opportunity to continue the pursuit. The box technique may be used whenever the suspects' vehicle has come to a complete stop momentarily.

Detective Bureau

The Detective Bureau is a sub-division for the San Andreas Sheriff's Department, with the sole purpose of targeting street crime and infiltrate major gangs. The Detective Bureau is working on dismantling manufacturing and selling of illegal firearms, as well as stopping the illicit selling of drugs on the streets. The DB is using many new methodologies in surveillance and approaching criminal suspects. Not only in the field are you seeing new procedures, but also behind the desk. No investigation of a person or gang will occur without being considered a Case File and all Case File will be stored on the official DB website, which only Detectives and High Commissioned officers have access too. This brilliant online system allows for more organization and professionalism within the Division. Detectives in the Division will not be allowed to do regular patrol in the Department, nor regular cop duties such as standing at the desk. Thus avoiding our Detectives identities being revealed.

Tactical Response Team

The Tactical Response Team is what you could compare to the Los Santos Police Department's SWAT. The TRT will be assisting deputies in extreme situations, such as; Code 0 shoot-outs, breaches, robberies and much more. Only the most fit and best Deputies will be able to become a part of the TRT, as the Divisions require a lot from you, both mentally and physically.

Recruitment Division

The Recruitment Division is responsible for many different things. Recruitment Deputies will firstly review applications, and then accept/deny them. If accepted, they'll also be responsible for setting up an interview, and then judge them to see if they're qualified for the Deputy Academy. The Recruitment Divisions have close relations to the Training Divisions, in order to coordinate trainings for the final academy.

Training Division

The Training Division has a very important assignment in the San Andreas Sheriff's Department. Their job is to train the accepted applicants and see if they're qualified enough. The training division will also be holding weekly trainings for Deputies. The Division is also in charge of the final academy.

Once you have detained a suspect, it's important that you talk to him/her to ensure that they know why they are being arrested. Before you are detaining a suspect, or if you are about to interrogate him/her on scene or at the station, it's important that you read them their Miranda Rights out loud.

You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to a attorney, if you cannot afford one, the state will appoint you one.
You have the right to a phone call, but only to ONE. Do you understand your rights?

It's important to make sure that the detained suspect is aware of their rights, and understand them fully. When you are about to book the suspect, make sure that he/her is frisked and that you have run a background check on them.


Patrol units shall be identified by the appropriate unit word word, unit number and the number of authorized law enforcement personal occupying the vehicle. There's multiple unit words that can be used for different operations and patrol methods.

One of the new thing is a change in the Letter Association when communicating via. the radio. From now on, you'll have to state the number of authorized Deputies inside the cruiser when stating your unit number, here's an example;

"2-Romeo-10 909 Red Buffalo AE3 male, DLM Code 4" - Here the person states the amount of Deputies in the cruiser, that he's on a traffic stop and which car he's pulling over. He's also introducing the Apparent Ethnicity that you can read more about. He's also stating the location, with the Region Abbreviations, and code of the situation.

Stating the amount of Deputies in a cruiser like this, "1-Romeo-10 or 2-Romeo-10" is a rule, failure to follow it will be punished.
