As of March 25th, 2022, the Personnel and Training Division was effectively dissolved after Los Santos Police Department and Paleto Bay Sheriff's Office decided to split their operations, to focus on hiring and training their own cadets, with each department having separate hiring & training programs.

Please do not put FALSE or UNCONFIRMED INFORMATION on this page, thank you.


The Personnel and Training Division is in charge of recruiting and training cadets for the Los Santos Police Department, Paleto Bay Sheriff's Office and Senora Desert Sheriff's Office. This is a joint division where the LSPD, PBSO and SDSO work together to train the police officers of tomorrow.


Among other things the two Co-Leads of the PTD are in charge of:

  • Interviewing potential cadets;
  • Hiring cadets;
  • Training cadets;
  • Solo evaluations and final evaluations;
  • Renewal of SOPs for the FTO phase;
  • Identify new committed and eager FTOs & FTIs;

Hiring and Recruitment process

Phase Note
1 The first phase of recruitment is the optional ride-along phase. Any civilian is eligible for a ride-along, provided they don't have a criminal history. Any law enforcement officer is able to take any eligible civilian on a ride-along, but they are required to fill out a feedback form afterwards. During these ride-alongs, the civilian will be required to wear a grey bulletproof vest, as they also remain seated within the officer's vehicle.
2 Once a civilian has decided to pursue a career as a law enforcement officer, they may apply by submitting a statement of interest form. This form can be provided by the dispatchers at MRPD, the recruiters from PTD, and either of the leads of PTD. On submission, the interest form will be reviewed by one of the leads of PTD, with the applicant being either approved or declined depending on both the quality of the answers and the feedback gathered during the ride-along phase.
3 Once an applicant's interest form has been approved, one of the recruiters of PTD will then begin a review of the applicant. During this phase, the information submitted within the interest form will the verified, references may be checked, a background check will be conducted, and a medical evaluation of the applicant will be required. If no issues arise during this process, the recruiter will schedule an interview with the applicant.
4 The interview is structured, consisting of a set list of questions. It will be recorded by the recruiters. The recording of the interview will later be reviewed by the leads of PTD. If the applicant passes the interview, they will receive a conditional offer of employment. Upon accepting this offer, the applicant will become a cadet, making them eligible for training by Field Training Officers through active duty.
5 The cadet must get all sign-off (Pursuit, Radio etiquette, Communications, Report writing & Foundations) and be cleared by an Field Training Instructor before they will be eligible for their solo certification.
6 Once a cadet has been cleared for solo patrol, they will be passively monitored by the PTD staff. Once a consensus has been reached that the cadet is ready for their final evaluation, one will be scheduled between the cadet and a Field Training Instructor. During this evaluation, the instructor will quiz the cadet on their theoretical knowledge of the law and observe them to gauge their practical knowledge in the field. If the cadet passes this evaluation, they will receive an offer of employment.
