A player interested in joining the Los Santos Sheriff's Department MUST take heed of this thread prior to approaching this faction.

We seek people who are obsessed with focusing on their own roleplay. We want perfectionists. We want people who are willing to sit down and develop a character.

If you join this faction with the expectation of being in a police department but with a beige colored uniform, you will not succeed in our recruitment process. This faction is not a mirror of the LSPD, nor is it intended to be. Our faction is not intended to compete with, to take away from, or to overrule the LSPD.

If you are looking to join a faction where you can do get into pursuits, contribute to massive casefiles on mafias, get into shootouts consistently, and get to do traffic stops...

You will be much better served not joining this faction. We aim to focus on roleplay, action is not guaranteed. You will have much more opportunity to do any of those things in the LSPD. This faction's primary focus is niche areas of roleplay not focused on by other factions.

To break it down:

Our faction is county-based and also has some of a rural nature, while there are municipal (contract) functions, our primary focus is to represent aspects of the criminal justice system that a municipal agency cannot represent. A beat cop in South Los Angeles isn't the same thing as a rural county cop in Catalina Island. A deputy in Davis fulfills a different function than a police officer from Mission Row. There will be beat cops in our faction potentially doing things in the city, but the context under which they do these things under is entirely separate from the same sort of thing being done by PD. This means that we do not want to represent a municipal, local law enforcement agency. A Sheriff's Department, by nature, is more political, more decentralized, and better funded.

Our primary focus is roleplay and narrative, and our narrative is a county-based Sheriff's Department, and therefore jail is a priority, but there is also exterior components. This doesn't make us any better than any other faction, in fact we're the worse option if your intention is to jump into pursuits and chase bad guys. We're going to be in the city from time to time but the primary focus is the county and jail, that means less people, less interactions, less pursuits. If you have some sort of bias, or you're a "reject" of another faction, we do not seek you. If you don't like PD, you won't like us. If you don't like FD, you won't like us. If you don't like DOJ, you won't like us.

There is plenty of room in our faction for good RP. More opportunity for office politics, more opportunity for corruption, and more opportunity for seedy characters. If you're interested, by all means join us.
