Crimes, Times and State Laws



Ever since San Andreas was turned into a state, a regulatory board was introduced to ensure all of its inhabitants were safe and were able to love a strucutred, normal life without fear of crime or retribution. The Summary of Offences Act was updated again in 1994 to become a modern law system for local authorities to enforce. The law seeks to make communities safer.

The 'Summary of Offences Act' is used as a general overview of the laws that reside in the state.

Tickets or citations are issued by Patrol Officers for infringements of state law. These are fines 'on the spot' and must be paid in full to the Officer at the time.
