Introduction
The LSPD handbook is issued pursuant to the Police Officers and applicants. The aim of this handbook is to provide guidance and instructions in distinguished aspects of the Los Santos Police Department. Applicants and members are to comply with the contents of this handbook so that their duties are discharged lawfully, ethically and efficiently. Failure to comply with the contents of this handbook may constitute grounds for disciplinary action. This handbook materials are not exhaustive but they really help you to do your job properly.
In recognition of the fact that in policing many decisions must be made quickly and with regard to diverse circumstances it is not possible to instruct members on every possible scenario, therefore, this handbook outlines general policies and procedures which may be adapted to circumstances as they arise.
The contents will be continually reviewed and updated to ensure currency and consistency with the law and community expectations.
Members and applicants should make themselves familiar with the contents of this handbook, they should also keep on re-viewing this handbook as it will be continually reviewed and updated.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Law Enforcement Code of Ethics
As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property, to protect the innocent against deception, the*-weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men to liberty, equality, and justice.
I-will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all, maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity*-will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty. I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I-will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities. I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession... law enforcement.

Unit numbers consist of at least four and no more than five characters in the general format of B##B##.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Use of Force
Use of Force A.K.A. Force Matrix.



The force matrix is used as guidelines as to what approach you should take to what the civilian or suspect is doing. Read the following to know what is needed to be known in current situations.

Force Level 1

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Physical Fitness

The Department encourages employees to maintain a satisfactory level of general health and physical fitness for their own well being. The functions of a law enforcement officer can frequently require a level of fitness not demanded by many other occupations. Proper physical fitness allows employees to perform more effectively and reduces the need for sick leave.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Vehicle Pursuits

A pursuit exists when an officer initiates a vehicle stop and the driver resists the order to stop, increases speed and/or takes evasive actions, and/or refuses to stop. Once the driver refuses to obey the officer’s order, this policy and procedure takes effect.
POLICY
It is the policy of the Department that pursuits are permissible only when the need for immediate capture outweighs the danger created by the pursuit itself. Immediate capture shall apply to only the most serious incidents. The circumstances justifying the decision to pursue must exist at the time of initiation. The suspected crime of eluding will not, without additional circumstances, justify a pursuit. Pursuits for traffic violations, misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors and most property crimes, alone, are to be avoided; the infraction or criminal act will not, by itself, constitute justification for a pursuit, barring extraordinary circumstances. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include, but are not limited to the display of a weapon, or any situation where the suspect creates a clear danger to others. The extraordinary circumstance must be present prior to the time that a pursuit is initiated. Officers, supervisors or captains will not be criticized or disciplined for either declining to initiate or deciding to terminate a pursuit.
