187 Montgomery Kings

Following on from an operation a few months ago we are able to finally announce the dissipation of a well know gang within the Montgomery area know as 187 Montgomery Kings, for months they've been a burden on the once peaceful town turning it into a crime ridden area with frequent shootouts. The Operation labelled Dissaray was aimed at taking down key members and hopefully tackling them once and for all, the operation was lablled a sucess as seen in this previous press release. As current Director of the Detective Bureau I would like to lend a special thankyou to all of the Detectives and Intelligence Officers who helped with the investigation, I would also like to extend that thankyou to former Lieutenant Colonel Danny Remington for his consistant support throughout.

It is the time of the season where many of the Academy Students of the San Andreas State Police have completed their training program and so shall stand with honor at graduation. These are the students of Academy batch #43. The students' names are as follows:
Probationary Trooper → State Trooper
  • Robert Pittman
    Mikey Thames
    Joshua Matthews
    Jackson Rose
    Henry Chapman
    Dawn McLaughlin
    David Winchester
    Cristiano Veronese
    Brandon Cole
    Andre Thompson
    Adam Jameson
    Jessica Eastwood

Probationary Trooper → Trooper First Class
  • Dianne Lopez

The ceremony was greeted by the Colonel of the San Andreas State Police Mark Cambridge, Major Jake Anderson and Major James Fitzpatrick. The Colonel's opening statement:
"On August 11th 2017 - 27 Civillians turned up to our training facility a nervous wreck in Blackfield. They couldn't tell if they were standing straight and had no idea what would come up in the next four weeks. They came as individuals, they leave today as a group, Serving under our motto; Protect with Courage - to Serve with Compassion.

Today Batch #43 have 16 remaining who have fully completed the recruitment and training process.
And they are here today to announce to their family, friends, and colleagues one thing. They have done it. They are today, going to be State Troopers. Four weeks of sacrifice and dedication - and have achieved their goals from day one. Before we acknowledge future State Troopers, we spend some time during this ceremony to commemorate our own fallen heroes.

The Troopers of many ranks, ages and ethnicities were then read out in last rites as The Fallen. These were the Troopers that gave their lives in the line of duty to protect another. The Colonel had recited a poem in honor of The Fallen:
Their motto was to protect and to serve, but I wonder today who would have had their nerve.
You can sleep tonight, we lost one of the brave, How many more lives could this officer have saved?
But our fears came true, with just two words.
"Officer Down" is what we heard.
We lost one of our finest, we lost one of the brave.
To stop fear or harm from coming your way.
The apartment building was burning out of control.
The child on the third floor, doomed to be a lost soul.
Until one hero gave his life for this little friend, one life was saved and one life died.
Before it's too late to show our hero's your heart, A call to say thank you would make a great start.
Tell them we need them before it's too late, we never say it until they meet their fate.
Where would we be without heroes like these?
Those that give willingly without being asked please.
Thank you heroes, both alive and passed on.
For without you all, security would be good.

Lest we forget.
State Trooper Dianne Lopez, Highest Achiever in the Training Stage, giving her speech.

The Students were then called upon to stand before the stage in rows to speak The Oath to be sworn into the State Police as dedicated Troopers.
"I, a member of the San Andreas State Police, subscribe in word and deed to the following:
To serve the United States of America and the State of San Andreas honestly, and conscientiously; and fulfill my oath as a soldier of the law;
To uphold and maintain the honor and integrity of the San Andreas State Police;
Be loyal to my fellow Troopers; respect and obey my seniors in rank; and enforce the law without fear, favor, or discrimination;
Assist those in peril or distress, and, if necessary, lay down my life rather than swerve from the path of duty;
My personal conduct shall at all times be above reproach and I will never knowingly commit any act that will in any way bring discredit upon the San Andreas State Police or any member thereof;
To all of this I do solemnly pledge my sacred honor as a Trooper of the San Andreas State Police."

The San Andreas State Police Oath

At every graduation ceremony, there are a certain number of Troopers that performed above the standards set in the State Police and thus received an award Ribbon to be worn on their uniform in recognition for their achievements. The Students that recieved these awards are as follows:
Exceptional Probationary:

Mikey Thames

Highest Achiever:

Dianne Lopez

Most Improved Probationary:

Joshua Matthews
Dianne Lopez receiving her award.
Mikey Thames receiving his award.
Joshua Matthews receiving his award.

To conclude the Academy batch, the statistics for all applications are as follows:
Total Applications: 56

Accepted applicants: 27
Denied applicants: 29

Total applicants that passed the exam and made it to Probationary stage: 21
Total number of Probationary Troopers that completed their training: 16

Probationary troopers were asked about how they found their experience in training and, their statements are as follows:
"One of the most experiencing, informational, and guiding ranks of them all has to be that of the Probationary Trooper. Going through the Field Training Reports and knocking off different events that took place during a patrol, one by one, was one of the most funnest parts of the rank.

As a Probationary Trooper, I felt very open to ask questions because of the wonderful administration and felt so welcomed in continuing forth my career efforts as a San Andreas State Police Trooper. Everyday I would come on duty along with a Trooper, gladly patrolling and monitoring the State of San Andreas.

Anyone who is looking to join the next batch you will need to remember just one thing, "Never Give Up." During the Probationary Stage you need to keep your head high, striving down the road to success whilst paving a new set of road to go down. Every inch you take, foot by foot down the Ceremony Hall, you will not regret one bit and all that will matter then, is that you made it to the end of what you were seeking."

Probationary Joshua Matt
"Since I have joined the San Andreas State Police, I had to go alot throught and obtain more knowledge about the duties and how it performs, should be done correctly. I found out this Academy greatful and useful for me atleast, I had the chance to be San Andreas State Police, and I finally did it correctly and properly, but bad thing is that we had to wait for one hour plus for a partner to take us on our ridealong, everything else went perfect for me!"

Probationary Trooper Cristiano Veronese
"I believe that the whole recruitment and field training process of the San Andreas State Police was a seriously challenging experience for every student and, of course, probationary trooper within the 43rd batch."

Probationary Trooper Dianne Lopez
"It's always fantastic to see new people join the department; starting as an Academy Student and working their way through the ranks. As always, Academy Batch #43 gave us some excellent new Troopers who I have been incredibly proud of throughout the whole Academy process.

Although the academy is challenging, each and every new Trooper faced it with the determination to succeed and that's been proven through the award winners and outstanding exam grades.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the Training and Recruitment Unit, to whom I am grateful for their hard work throughout the course of this batch and every batch before.

Congratulations to Academy Batch #43, I wish you the best of luck for your future within the San Andreas State Police."

Major James Fitzpatrick

Public Affairs on behalf of The State Police congratulates those who graduated today and wishes the best of luck to them in the field.

Dear Employees,

A bit later than first planned, however we have finally got this released. We were given some news from possibly one of the best High Command members the Department has seen. Lieutenant Colonel Danny Remington has announced that he will be stepping down from this position to focus on another career. In this, we wish him the best of luck and hope it goes as he planned.

We've had a great month and another great batch - our 911 response rate has increased, we're trialling new systems and the Sergeants team is the best that it has been in a long time. The progress made in only one month is amazing, and we really need to keep this going.

We're coming to the end of this Academy batch, and feel like the Probationaries have been absolutely outstanding so far and really hope that they continue this into their careers. We'll be announcing a careers day for the Probationary Troopers who are moving forward so that they can look to their next move in their career in Law Enforcement.

Dear Employees,

Another months rolls by, with Divisions within the Department becoming more efficient and effective as we continue to push, and aim to never stop our forward momentum. Our Detective Bureau is hitting a new all-time high with the amount of narcotics and firearms being seized on a monthly basis. It is an alarming amount of illegal contraband being seized, however it is comforting to know that our Department is doing everything in its strength to continue combating this street crime.

Patrol Operations which for a long time never worked in the Department. But with the effort and resources we have put into it, it was finally a success. However, in the background there were issues with our bulk promotion system. This was being neglected, going back to the old system of using the Command Team to decide who gets promoted and who did not. After a much needed makeover, the Patrol Operations Bureau will be re-introduced with lots of new interesting and developed systems.

Cyber Crime is the next thing our Department will look to tackle in the coming months as we look into popular social media platforms in our county including Snapshot Social to help investigate and deter street crime.

It is hard to deny the progress the Department is making, where we may still have faults, but we are extremely quick to accept them and correct them. Take the duty report requirement for example, there would not be many leadership teams who would take such a backlash on the chin and reverse their decision.

On that note, we would like to touch on it briefly and apologize for the change that was made for a total of 24 hours. As much as we feel an apology is not entirely required due to nobody being affected by the change, we feel it is the best thing to do. We apologize for the change, and aim to move forward from it.

Finishing off the above, the High Command Team, for the first time in a long time, intervened in a Command Decision and overturned it moving forward, and this just shows that we are willing to change decisions made should our employees cry out for it.

The suggestions board will continue to be checked by the Colonel directly, and these will be brought into discussions between Command Team members for possible implementation upon acceptance.

We hope you enjoy the last official month of summer in August.

High Command Team

Casa Blancas Casino - Montgomery
Published and edited by Mercedes Sarno Montana of County Radio on 6th July 2017

  • Casa Blancas Casino is considered one of the few major casinos in Red County.
  • Largest casino in Red County, includes free parking for customers.
  • Friendly staff, safe and inviting environment.

Montgomery, the home to many outstanding local businesses that range from humble grocery stores and restaurants to high-flying nightclubs and casinos. This week, County Radio went to visit one of the leading casino's, situated in Montgomery, Casa Blancas. Casa Blancas is more than just your typical casino, it's absolutely perfect for both day and night leisure with a fantastic bar, lounge & seating area and much more. 

Casa Blancas is home to numerous Roulette and Blackjack tables, but there does appear to be a lack of private rooms for much higher stakes. Nevertheless, tables range in stakes to ensure every player's budget is met. The casino's very own in-house bar offers a wide variety of contemporary and quality drinks in the casino's welcoming atmosphere. Casa Blancas Casino is owned and operated by Mr. Ralph Sacramano who admittedly prefers a laid back and reserved style of management over his property, [sic] "When we're open you rarely see me down at the floor. I hire people I trust, and people I know will get the job done. I tend to sit up here [office] and enjoy the view with a drink in my hand." Mr. Sacramano stated. 

Casa Blancas Casino presents itself with a safe and friendly environment, with many members of staff easily being spotted at every corner of the property to ensure everything on the ground is in order. Nevertheless, there doesn't appear to be any control over dress code, especially in an establishment of such prestige. Throughout the evening individuals were seen shrouding their faces with bandanas and various other garments. With such a high amount of money passing through the doors of the casino, it begs to ask the question if a dress code will be implemented or if better control will be had over individuals who choose to hide their identity.


Interior: ♦♦♦♦♦
- Very grand, spacious and prestigous feeling.
- Ideally located in the heart of Red County. Unmissable.
- Stakes range significantly, ideal for every budget.
- Friendly and attentive staff and dealers.
- Friendly and safe, though a lack/control of dress code.
- Ample secure parking, free for casino customers.

Santa Maria Bonfire
Published by Heather Byrne
On Wednesday 5th July 2017


Press Release #75

After such a fantastic series of events on Independence Day, the Fire Department's Community Relations team decided to host an event where the public can relax and enjoy the evening sun with some free food and great music. A large bonfire was set alight on the safe area of Santa Maria Beach, where the sand prevented the bonfire from posing a threat to any houses. Railings were put around the bonfire to protect the public from the heat, however the sight of a bonfire while listening to music and hanging out with some new friends was simple blissful.

During the event, we decided to start looking for some great dancers. We announced that we were offering a $40,000 award to the best dancer, which was won by Jennifer O'Brian, which was then followed by another offering of $40,000 to the second best dancer, which was won by Eric Frost.


Winner #1                                                                                                                                         Winner #2


After everyone was settled down and listening to music while enjoying the exquisite sea breeze, Argent Aerospace decided to give us an amazing airshow with their stunt planes.

The impromptu airshow came as an immensely pleasurable surprise and we'd like to extend the warmest thank you to Bella Schofield and the entirety of Argent Aerospace for their airshow. After the airshow, we were treated to a spectacular firework show put on by Ethan Forstman.

To finish off the amazing event, the Community Relations team decided to give the crowd a bit of a spray down! The party was met with water being sprayed into the crowd by the CR-ENGINE unit which was on-scene, embarking in some summer fun with a bit of water. We did advise that you bring a swimming suit!

After the event died down, those who stayed watched as the bonfire was tackled by the experienced firefighters of the Red County Fire Department. Byrne, Wilder and McMillan were cheered on as they put out the fuel of the Santa Maria Beach party, bringing a slow end to a night full of fun and spectacular events.

From everyone at the Community Relations team, we thank you for your attendance at the event. We've definitely got a lot more similar events coming up so make sure you keep an eye out for our advertising!
