Are you certain that you wish to start a career within the law enforcement?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is being a police officer more exciting than being chased by the police?
  • Would you rather avoid spending long times in jail?
  • Are you tired of being a newbie trainee, not respected by anyone?
  • Are you ready to advance to the next level of professionalism, commitment, order and teamwork?
  • If the answer is yes, then the Los Santos Police Department is the right place for you!


What is Pro Cop (PC)?

PC is a group for graduated police officers. They're granted access to equipment available only to SAPD personnel, ranging from dispatch communications and traffic regulation tools, to K-9 police dog units. Given that they have access to irregular equipment, all PC members are held at a high standard with strict rules in place. Being a PC member means being a capable police player and roleplayer, as well as well versed in server/PC rules.

Full-time gang members are not allowed to be in the Pro Cop group.
Exceptions are made to SAES clan admins. They are like all other required to follow the PC rules.



How do I join Pro Cops?

All persons who wish to join the police force may do so by completing the four weeks education course in San Andread Police Academy (SAPA), or by becoming an active squad member that has spent at least four previous weeks within an official squad. Unlike squads, SAPA offers full-time training to its cadets, designed with PC test/application as a final goal. Newer players are advised to start in SAPA rather than a squad, to be fully prepared for the PC test/application.

PC group membership is obtained through a forum application. For application to be valid, aforementioned steps must be made.

  3. A dispatcher can only stay inside a PD.
  4. Don't spam missions
  5. Incase of multiple Dispatcher being spawned you're not allowed to use the reset missions command without discussing it with your fellow Dispatchers.

How does the Dispatcher Panel work?
See ''Dispatcher'' in the Spawn Description section.

Dispatcher: How To?
Rename yourself to Dispatch|A (A if you're the first Dispatcher to spawn and B if you're the second and so on.)
Start up the Dispatcher script (/coord).

If you're playing as a Dispatcher don't just type; ''Get him!''. Make sure your well informed and learn how to talk in radio. Don't ignore people when they're talking to you and make sure you have binds like these (Required)

Local Chat: Stop! This is the police! Pull over and show me your hands! (/sur)
Local Chat: This is your final warning! You're under arrest!

Frequently Asked Questions



  • If you are an ex-PC, how can you get your PC diploma back?
    The only way to get it back is by simply applying again after being in a squad for 4 weeks or repeating the SAPA education. You shouldn't have left for a gang in the first place.

  • If you get kicked because of your inactivity, can you re-gain your PC membership back or not?
    For now, no one gets kicked from PC because of inactivity. If you have solid proofs to prove that you were a PC member, you can always share them with SAPD HQs or PCD.

  • I am on the criminal side now, will they kick me from PC?
    All PC members have to inform a SAPD HQ or PCD if they want to join a gang or otherwise become full-time criminals. Do not ask an admin to remove you from PC spawn. Repercussions of failing to notify anyone could include permanent ban from affiliation to SAPD in any way.

  • What are SAPD HQ and PCD?
    SAPD HQ is the HQ part of the PC group. PCD is the unit that supervises all PC units. They will monitor and potentially warn, kick and/or suspend people from PC whenever caught breaking the rules.

    More on PCD here:

  • Are PCD members also PC testers?
    PCD and PC Testers are very different things. PCD members take care of reports about Procops and also answer the questions about PC. Testers take care of PC applications and PC tests. Although this is not to say that PCD members can't be or aren't PC Testers at the same time.

  • How can you get a PC invite panel?
    PC inviting rights are as of November 2019 reserved by SAPD HQ, invitation depends on the outcome of PC Testers discussion.

  • For SAPA Cadets; Can PC Testers train or test me for SAPA trainings/tests?
    PC Tester can not host SAPA trainings/tests. They're tasked with PC related matters alone.

  • Who is in charge of my PC application?
    PC applications are reviewed & approved/denied by PC Testers.

  • When is the deadline for the final answer of my application for PC?
    PC testers have an approximate deadline of one week (7 days from when you posted the application.).
    Note that waiting period may vary at times.
    Please remember that PC applications/tests have nothing to do with PCD.

  • How can I officially become a PCD member / how often do you recruit?
    PCD accustomed recruitment is via application which opens only when we are in need of new PCD detectives.

  • How can I get my PC test?
    Following accepted application status, you will be told who to contact for a test.
