On 15 January 2017 at 7:00 PM, Colonel Mark Cambridge issued a glorifying public statement outside Dillimore Police Department, following a successful bust in the area of Bluff Drive, Palomino Creek, carried out in an attempt to put an end to gang violence in the area. In addition to this, those who organized the bust operation were rewarded and heavily praised for their determined and well-planned thinking. This was soon followed by a Q&A from the Colonel, assisted by the Deputy Director of Public Affairs, Corporal SiT Elena Green, where numerous questions were asked regarding the bust as well as the State Police in general.

The public statement began, with the Colonel along with the present High Command members exiting the lobby, presenting themselves to the crowd before briefly introducing himself. He began informing the public of a somewhat surprising yet successful bust at a house on Bluff Drive, coordinated by no one other than the State Police Detective Bureau. In response to the high rising crime rate in Palomino Creek, an investigation as well as raid was carried out in the Bluff Drive area of Palomino Creek. The raid was successful, with no casualties being taken from either side. Cambridge took this as a decisive victory for the SASP, quoting the seizure report, all of which were taken from the single gang in Palomino Creek.

Firearms

  • Desert Eagle: 14
  • Shotgun: 4
  • Micro-Uzi: 21
  • MP5: 7
  • AK47: 2
  • M4: 1

Narcotics:

  • Marijuana & Cocaine: 600g

In reward for his outstanding effort in organizing as well as executing this triumphant operation, the Colonel awarded Detective Sergeant Michael Eastman nothing other than the Colonel's award! In addition to this, Eastman was immediately installed as the new Director of the State Police Detective Bureau, as well as placed back into his former position of Corporal. Congratulations to Eastman for the outstanding work he has done for the community!

Colonel's Award

This award is given to a Trooper specifically chosen by the Colonel of the San Andreas State Police. One of the hardest ribbons to achieve, those who possess this have shown outstanding effort and service to the Department and assisted in many Divisions and Units.


Before returning back to our normal duties, we managed to catch a statement from both the Colonel Mark Cambridge and now SPDB Director Michael Eastman.

Mark Cambridge wrote:

This is a landmark bust for the San Andreas State Police, and the State itself. It's one of the largest busts which we have seen from our own Department, and in Palomino itself. At the recent Crime Committee conference with the Governer and a select few representatives, they highlighted in particular that the crime rate in Palomino was not good enough. Therefore, it has been a concentration for our ESU Patrols and our investigatory teams.

These are the results that we are looking for as we look to improve the crime accross the County. This sends a strong, clear message towards every gang and family in San Andreas. We're watching, and we will be making moves as times goes on.

 

Michael Eastman wrote:

Firstly I'd like to thank the State Troopers who supported the Detective Bureau during tonight's search warrant that was conducted on a premise in eastern Palomino Creek, I'd also like to extend that thank you to the members of the Emergency Services Unit who were in attendance as our main tactical unit. Collectively as a department all those who were involved worked well together, we were swift and effective in the approach, entry and secure stages with an all round good result. This goes to show that we are starting to get a handle on the crime that has been plaguing Palomino and the wider County, I can safely say there will be more instances such as this one in the near future.


After Eastman was applauded, the Colonel stayed behind for a Q&A session, with the assistance of Green. The public were able to ask appropriate questions to the Colonel, face to face, with direct answers. Unfortunately, two males were forcibly removed from the session in response to provocatively denouncing the Colonel. Despite this, we were still able to gather a few questions, the important ones regarding the future in particular.

In regards to the issues surrounding graffiti: "Why has SP not done anything about the plague of graffiti around town?"

Mark Cambridge wrote:

Fantastic question sir, I appreciate the question. We aren't responsible for the clean up of the graffiti, however we are going to be looking at setting up some form of task force for dealing with the prevention of graffiti. A form of "payback" was suggested by a Trooper, allowing minor criminals to clean up as a community payback.

 
Regarding the issues surrounding the reliability of law enforcement: "How come the State Police are getting killed EVERYDAY?"

Mark Cambridge wrote:

Your question is very broad and it's a very difficult question to address. We are continually operating on the streets and investigating groups of street gangs and families to address the ongoing issues and we are seeing improvements across all towns.

 
Another question regarding the issues the reliability of law enforcement: "People are getting gunned down in Montgomery. What are you gonna do about that? "

Mark Cambridge wrote:

Part one thank you for asking that question, as I was in a Crime Committee today with the Governor. He highlighted specifically Montgomery as a target, and it is something we are going to increase the amount of tactical patrols in the area.

To sum up, we would like to thank everyone who attended for the public statement. We, the San Andreas State Police, try our best to fulfill our motto To protect with courage, to serve with compassion. Clearly we have seen this from the outcome of the operation, as well as from the public statement given by Colonel Cambridge. Again, congratulations to now Corporal and Director of SPDB Michael Eastman on his success as well as promotions. We wish you all a great day and will continue to help protect the streets of San Andreas, from the windswept fields of Flint County to the barren deserts of Bone County.

Congratulations to SASP - Batch #42!
Published and edited by Mercedes Montana for County Radio on 11th June 2017

  • 16 new SASP hopefuls successfully passed their graduation.
  • A fantastic turnout from Red County residents showed their support.
  • First ever graduation ceremony to be held in the Dillimore Police Department Ceremony Hall.

It has been no secret that our County Radio journalists love a ceremony just as much as the next person and this evening was no different as County Radio attended our 4th consecutive Academy with the State Police. Residents from across Red County attended the graduation ceremony for Batch #42 which took place for the very first time inside the Dillimore Police Department. Batch 42 consisted of 16 brand new hopefuls who have proven their own outstanding ability to perform on and off of the field, which is what the San Andreas State Police is all about.

On April 15th the San Andreas State Police saw their batch #41 of recruits join their department, but today saw a brand new batch of hopefuls to join the prestigious State Police ranks. Colonel Mark Cambridge was present at the graduation as he kick-started the ceremony in front of a packed out audience.


Colonel Mark Cambridge took to the stage.


Transcript - Colonel Mark Cambridge [sic]:
"Thanks a lot for coming along to Academy Graduation #42. I see faces here who attend these regularly, and you know how lengthy they can be. So I appreciate the turnout. Alright moving on, my colleagues, and civilians we serve. I am delighted to stand before you today, still having the privilege of hosting this ceremony. Every few months we gather to celebrate the graduation of a new batch of Law Enforcement Officers. Batch 42 is no different, nor has the standards they have shown been different than those previous."


Before official proceedings were able to start, Colonel Mark Cambridge began with a one minute silence to honor those who had fallen during their service within the State Police.

San Andreas State Police Perform Successful Weapons Bust
Published and edited by Mercedes Montana for County Radio on 8th June 2017

 

  • San Andreas State Police conducted successful weapon bust yesterday evening.
  • A total of six lethal weapons removed from the streets.
  • Weapon dealer fatally wounded during bust.

Late yesterday evening reports came in regarding a successful weapons bust by the San Andreas State Police. The individual who was targetted will remain anonymous while further investigations continue but the weapons dealer was known to police.

The San Andreas State Police have worked tirelessly to ensure that illegal firearms and substances remain off our streets and yesterday was no exception when a large amount of firearms were recovered. The Operation took place with intelligence that had been provided from an ex-Aperture Agent. The arrest and seizure reportedly took place at Aldea Malvada with Operatives from both State Police Detective Bureau and the Strategic Response Unit.

The following was seized, and safely removed from the street;

  • 1x AK47
  • 3x Micro-Uzi
  • 1x MP5
  • 1x TEC-9

The State Police have confirmed that the suspect was gunned down, suffering fatal injuries after officers approached him. The suspect proceeded to withdraw his own firearm which has since been reported to be an assault rifle, before killing one Trooper. The suspect was shot immediately and killed upon sight. No further injuries had taken place. As far as the State Police are aware, the weapons dealer was a lone dealer, and his entire cache was seized after the successful bust.

County Radio would like to thank the San Andreas State Police for their correspondence and information provided within this article.

Station 11 Fire & Grill Barbecue

Station 11 Fire & Grill Barbecue
Published and edited by Mercedes Montana for County Radio on 5th June 2017

  • Red County Fire Department hosts public barbecue.
  • Music, grilled food and basketball available.
  • Chief Duncan McMillan said to be planning for more events for the public.

With summer well on its way the Red County Fire Department surprised local residents with a public barbecue that saw the likes of Potato and Caesar salads, French fries, burgers, hotdogs, barbecue ribs and much more tantalizing foods. The barbecue was the brain child of Mr. William Jackson, a member of the Fire Department who could be spotted hard at work maintaining the grill.

Fire Department Chief Duncan McMillan was available to comment on the event during a publically broadcasted interview with SAN Network, "we planned it to be only between us, the FD members, but we decided it to make it public" Chief McMillan began, "we were cooking burgers and hotdogs outside".


When asked about the possibility of any possible future events from the Fire Department Chief McMillan had this to say, "definitely, we are planning for more events". Chief McMillan kept his cards close to his chest as he didn't disclose many clues as to what these public events may be, but judging by the quality of today's barbecue, County Radio is certainly confident that they will be a success. Nevertheless, the only clue that Chief McMillan may have let slip is his public request for a business property, "right now the Fire Department is looking for a place to set up like a Bar, if you are selling one or you are in look for a trade please do not hesitate to contact me on my personal number [omitted]!"

In recent months the Red County Fire Department has been loosely criticized for its management and performance but Chief McMillan was keen to debunk a lot of the hearsay around the County, "Right now the activity has increased significantly, but we are still working on the Recruitment part" he began, "[we are looking to] increase the number of employees and also increase the quality of our services and the response".

The Red County Fire Department has recently announced its public introduction to their up and coming station, Station 12, which will be situated in Bone County. Station 12 will be home to their Special Operations Division and is located at the Fort Carson Medical Center. For more information on The Red County Fire Department's Station 12, click to visit their Press Release #68.
