Gary Schaffer is a character in the 3D Universe of the Grand Theft Auto series who is mentioned in Grand Theft Auto III and returns as an unseen minor character in Manhunt.


Schaffer is first mentioned on a Lips 106 radio news segment in Grand Theft Auto III, before appearing as a minor character in Manhunt.

He is the chief of police for the Carcer City Police Department.

He is put on trial after a snuff film/pornography film ring, involving Schaffer, was discovered. He was also accused in 2001 of these charges. He was cleared on charges of corruption due to the disappearance of many witnesses.

Schaffer's character might have been inspired by Milton Milan, a former mayor of Camden, New Jersey (one of Carcer City's influences) who was convicted with 14 counts of corruption and jailed in 2000.
