"I.A.D. Nobody move!"
―One of the IAD Agents

The Internal Affairs Division, also known as the IAD and I.A.D., is a law-enforcement agency mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, The Lost and Damned and in Grand Theft Auto Online and appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars


It is based on the real life Internal Affairs. The IAD heavily monitors Wade Heston for his actions, which include resorting to drugs in order to deal with his marital problems.

It is mentioned in GTA San Andreas that Jimmy Hernandez reported the murder of Officer Ralph Pendelbury to Internal Affairs, albeit framing Frank Tenpenny for the killing rather than admitting it was in fact he himself that killed Pendelbury. This leads to Hernandez being murdered by Eddie Pulaski.

They are mentioned by the bent cops during "Bad Cop Drop" in The Lost and Damned.

In the "Evidence Dash" mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, they use the Cognoscenti fitted with a siren as their main vehicle.
