Grand Opening: Vinewood Community Police Station
Los Santos: Following the decommission of the West Los Santos Community Police Station, organizational changes have been made to allow for the implementation of a new police station located at 2526 Vinewood Boulevard.
A new entity, the Vinewood Area of the department's Operations Bureau will serve the residential and commercial district of Los Santos, including areas such as Richman, Temple, Market, Marina, Rodeo and Camino del Sol.
It is the mission of the Vinewood Community Police Station to work with local residents, public and private agencies, to improve the quality of life in the Vinewood Area. We will strive to provide a safe environment that will promote business, encourage tourism, and revitalize our neighborhoods.
Vinewood Area will be commanded by 22-year department veteran Captain III Andrew Derwin.
Andy, as he is affectionately known, joined the Los Santos Police Department in 1999 and served patrol as well as specialized assignments in Metro Division.
Captain Derwin has extensive experience in managing police resources in geographical areas. He has served the Department's Harbor Area as its Area Commanding Officer and most recently the West Los Santos Area.
