The department is headed by the Bone County Sheriff, currently Joseph Fitzgerald, whom was elected to a first term in 2013.

Historical backgroundEdit

The LVMPD was in 1864 established as a people's militia assembled by the town's city council, with the intention of securing the railroad and mines around it. In 1880 the government reorganized the militia group, and named it the Las Venturas Police. At the same time, a Sheriff's group was organised in Bone County, being given legal jurisdiction over that area. Re-organization followed in each department over a period of 40 years up until 1920. In 1973 the Bone County Sheriff's Department and the Las Venturas Police Department where merged under the name Las Venturas Metropolitan Police Department.
