A Captain's Word on Crime
By Elizabeth Dempsey,

Los Santos' crime rates have reached their highest in the past two years, according to local law officials. Los Santos is a city known for not only its abundant job opportunities and lavish nightlife, but also for its unstable crutch on narcotics and drug sale epidemics across the city. Among the drug problems of Los Santos is its diverse criminal activity involving both street gangs and criminal organizations.

SAN was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to personally interview a respected, reputable officer of the Los Santos Police Department. Captain Reeves, a ten year veteran of the department, contributed his two cents on the worrisome growth of the city's escalating criminal activity.

Inside the Fire Department

Being a public servant is and always will be the toughest job; whether it be a law enforcement officer, a firefighter or paramedic. They put their own lives in danger so others may live safely, and knowing the dangers of their work, they risk the possibility of one day not being able to return back to their home and back to their loved ones.

CAPTAIN'S WORD ON
LOS SANTOS CRIME

By Elizabeth Dempsey.



Los Santos' crime rates have reached their highest in the past two years, according to local law officials. Los Santos is a city known for not only its abundant job opportunities and lavish nightlife, but also for its unstable crutch on narcotics and drug sale epidemics across the city. Among the drug problems of Los Santos is its diverse criminal activity involving both street gangs and criminal organizations.

SAN was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to personally interview a respected, reputable officer of the Los Santos Police Department. Captain Reeves, a ten year veteran of the department, contributed his two cents on the worrisome growth of the city's escalating criminal activity.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

SAN: Captain Reeves, when do your shifts usually start? Nighttime? Daytime? Morning?

Capt. Reeves: I'm the Mid-PM Watch Commander, which is Watch Three. [4:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m.]

SAN: Which shift or Watch do you think is most eventful?

Capt. Reeves: Watch Four, which is the Evening Watch. [8:00 p.m. — 12:00 a.m.]

SAN: Why do you think Watch Four is most eventful?

Capt. Reeves: It's peak time for the city, in my opinion. We have a lot of people out and about. Usually leads to a lot of vehicle pursuits, shootouts and other criminal activity.

SAN: What do you think the city's most common criminal activity is?

Capt. Reeves: Hm. Tough one. I would say narcotics. You drive past a lot of the street corners and see dealers posted there. They flag down the vehicles and try to distribute their products.

SAN: Which neighborhood—or neighborhoods—do you think has the most criminal activity? Where are you usually dispatched to?

Capt. Reeves: It would have to be East Los Santos, stretching from Glen Park up to Los Flores. That includes Las Colinas, Crenshaw and Jefferson.

SAN: What's the most common criminal activity you see in those previously mentioned neighborhoods?

Capt. Reeves: Hm. Another tough one. I'd say that fighting would be a common issue around here [East Los Santos], both north and south.

Capt. Reeves: (driving down 6th Street) A few days ago this street was packed. People were getting drunk and causing a disturbance. A few [6th Street residents] were on drugs, so we came in with force to move them along. With a few non-compliant arrests, we ended up stopping it.

SAN: Of all the street gangs in Los Santos, which are the most notorious for criminal activity?

Capt. Reeves: The one in El Corona without a shadow of a doubt.

SAN: What are they most known for in terms of their activity? Shootings? Brawls? Drug sales?

Capt. Reeves: It's a mix of all three. About a month ago we got the go-ahead for a District Warrant in El Corona. We could essentially quarantine El Corona, it was getting that bad. They would throw bricks at the police cruisers as we passed by, and stop vehicles in the middle of the road to rob the drivers. We must have had SWAT raid the entire district once a day. Making multiple arrests for righteous activity, narcotics and weapons—it made a huge impact on their operations there. They've quietened down a little bit, but they're always up to something.

SAN: Which division mainly handles gang and narcotic activity?

Capt. Reeves: Gang and Narcotics Division, which is a division of the Office of Criminal Intelligence.

SAN: What about organized crime? Who handles that?

Capt. Reeves: Vice Division.

SAN: What specific cases does Vice handle?

Capt. Reeves: They handle everything to do with organized crime. Weapons are a big issue for them. It's harder to deal with organized crime, in my opinion, as they're more low profile than the regular street gangs you see around.

SAN: That concludes our interview. Thank you for sparing us your time, Captain.

TRAFFIC COLLISION ON
MARKET STREET

By Frank Roward.


Image
MARKET STREET, LOS SANTOS - On January 04 2013, at night a traffic collision occurred at Studio Center. Officer Sparker from the Los Santos Police Department reported that a horrific accident had happened in the busy road, causing a civilian to get stuck at a cluster of vehicles.

Officer Sparker stated that while he was patrolling around Market Street, a civilian signaled Officer Sparker to pull over to the side of the road. The civilian reported that there was a traffic collision up on the road. The Traffic Division units from the LSPD secured the perimeter, conducting interviews with all parties involved later on.

While the investigations were going on, the Traffic Division units tried their best to save the unlucky bike driver from the collision. The injured man was transported to the All Saints General Hospital for further treatment.
.
Officer Sawyer stated: "Our department takes Traffic Collisions seriously, we aim to find the culprit, and to get them off the streets."

As a reporter, I'm glad to hear the LSPD's countless efforts trying to protect our citizens. We are saddened to see unfortunate accidents happening daily. But I'm sure the Government work to their best to find a solution.

MALE ROBBED AT
HARMONY OAKS

By Elizabeth Dempsey.




IDLEWOOD, Los Santos — The Los Santos Police Department are often patrolling Idlewood and its surrounding neighborhoods due to its known gang violence and heavy drug issues. Like any other typical day for the Los Santos Police Department, they were dispatched to a 9-1-1 call in Idlewood regarding an alleged robbery incident.


Image

Officer Lucci first arrived on scene at the Harmony Oaks housing projects in West Idlewood, where he cautiously approached a group of males—a majority of them underage—outside the apartment building. Officer Hayez and Officer Fisher arrived within five minutes of Lucci's initial arrival. The three officers maintained security of the scene. After questioning and frisking two males—supposedly of which were not directly involved in the alleged robbery—the officers initiated the investigation further by sending Hayez inside the building to search for possible suspects or witnessing bystanders.




Image
While Hayez covered the security and investigation within the interior of the building, the two remaining officers continued questioning the residents of Harmony Oaks outside. The 9-1-1 caller, a male named Chris, stayed on scene. Chris shared that he was allegedly attacked and robbed inside the apartment building by three men. A short verbal dispute broke out between the 9-1-1 caller and a male tenant of the apartment while the two officers were privately discussing matters with each other. Lucci demanded the unsuspected tenants to disperse from the scene, preventing further arguments.



Image

Later that morning, an arrest was made. Hayez escorted a seventeen-year-old male out of the building in cuffs. The officers assisted the young male into the back of their CVPI. Lucci would not make a statement about the arrest or the male's charges, nor would he disclose any other information regarding the incident other than a concluding arrest. The suspect's name was not revealed, nor publicly announced.

INSIDE THE
FIRE DEPARTMENT

By Richard Sundlay.



Being a public servant is and always will be the toughest job; whether it be a law enforcement officer, a firefighter or paramedic. They put their own lives in danger so others may live safely, and knowing the dangers of their work, they risk the possibility of one day not being able to return back to their home and back to their loved ones. For them, it isn't about the paycheck at the end of the day, rather the satisfactory feeling from the well-being and safety of the citizens. Public servants are to be praised, respected and loved, no matter what.

Today we will be venturing inside the fire department with our guide Alexis Finnessey, who is a Firefighter II.

I started talking with firefighter Finnesey while she was waiting on a call to be put through the dispatcher, or what they call "OCD." Luckily, there were no emergencies at the time of the interview, providing a great opportunity to learn more about their day-to-day job without any disturbances. It was eye-opening, to say the least.

"'D' stands for Danger; we first need to make sure the scene is not dangerous. So before arriving to the scene, we usually check our surroundings. 'R' stands for Response; we need to make sure the patient is responsive to see if they are LOC-A or LOC-U. 'C' stands for Circulation; we need to make sure the blood is flowing around the body at a stable rate. 'A' stands for Airway; if the patients' airway is blocked, we would need to attend to that immediately. 'B' stands for Breathing; similarly to the treatment of the airway, but we need to make sure that the patient can breathe."

And that is the vital DR CAB procedure.

While speaking with Firefighter Finnessey, she also stated that the Fire Department has two main Departments within itself. Hospital Care and Pre-Hospital Care. Firefighters are being part of the Pre-Hospital Care, while Doctors are being part of the Hospital Care. She added, our duty is to bring the victims back to the Hospital, safe and sound, and give the vital information to the Hospital Staff, so that they can start helping the victim, immediately.

The fire department also specializes in many divisions, thus having a variety of different vehicles for different uses.

Every editorial has to come to an end. However, I would like to share my gratitude and respect with all the men and women who endanger their lives so the rest of Los Santos can live safe and comfortable lives.
