Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums
Total Resources Against Street Hoodlums, or abbreviated TRASH, was formed in 1977 by Los Santos chief of police as a elite and ultimately controversial policing-division with aim to combat the rise of gang activity and organized crime. Due to the abbreviation, that of TRASH human-rights activists began protesting against the acronym, making claims that the abbreviation-acronym is hurting to the youth. This would eventually result in the division name change to Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums, now abbreviated CRASH.

Operation Sledgehammer


Operation Sledgehammer was a CRASH-led initiative that began in 1987 to crack down on gang violence in the vicinity of south-central Los Santos. As a result of increasing gang-violence and drive-by shootings resulting in the deaths seven people, then-Chief of Police Harold Ports responded by sending CRASH-officers to apprehend suspected gang members. At the height of this operation in April 1988, 1,453 suspects were arrested by one thousand police officers in a single weekend. While considered successful by some, Operation Sledgehammer and LSPD were maligned with accusations of racism. Some believed that the operation heavily relied on racial profiling, targeting African-American and Hispanic youths that were labelled as "urban terrorists" and "ruthless killers." However, proponents of the operation counter that it was not discriminatory as each gang-member arrested had warrants for their arrests.
