[[Police Patrol]] |} '''Police cars''' are emergency services vehicles primarily used by [[police]] officers. The cars begin to chase the [[Protagonist|protagonist]] of each [[Grand Theft Auto]] game when they have received either a [[GTA2 wanted level|police head]] or [[Wanted Level|wanted star]]. Police cars are known by different names in different games, whilst [[GTA IV]] has two models of police cars: The '''[[Police Cruiser]]''' and '''[[Police Patrol]]'''. Since GTA III, the majority of police cars in the game also share the same body design as the [[Taxi]]. Other police and [[:Category:Law Enforcement Vehicles|law enforcement vehicles]] exist. These include the [[Enforcer]] police/SWAT van, the [[Police Maverick]] helicopter, [[HPV-1000]] police bike and the [[Predator]] police boat. ==GTA 1 — GTA 2== In [[Grand Theft Auto 1]], the police car is known as the "'''Squad Car'''". Three variants of the car exist, each appearing in one of the game's three cities. In [[Liberty City in GTA 1|Liberty City]], the Squad Car is rounded vehicle with blue-white livery, appearing similar to a 1990s Chevrolet Caprice; the [[City of San Andreas|San Andreas]]/[[Vice City in GTA 1|Vice City]] variants are actually adaptations of the [[Portsmouth]], with the San Andreas version bearing a black-and-white body color design and similar angular body design, and the Vice City rendition being colored blue and white but features a modified body that appears wider and rounded. In the PC version of GTA 1, the police cars (along with the [[Ambulance]] and the [[Fire Truck]]) will have their radio tuned to [[Radio Stations in GTA 1|Brooklyn Underground FM]], unlike all other renditions throughout the series which only have the standard police dispatch radio. The performance of GTA 1 Squad Cars are identical in all three cities, and are all essentially the best in the game, with the highest top speed and acceleration among all cars in the game, highly responsive brakes and good grip. While the cars are given a very high export value of $2,000, but the cars cannot be exported, as are other emergency vehicles. Police cars in [[Grand Theft Auto: London 1969|GTA London 1969]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: London 1961|GTA London 1961]] are known as "'''[[Copper]]s'''". In [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], the police car is known as the "'''Cop Car'''" and assumes a completely original design, looking like a retro-futuristic squad car with 1940s design cues. Like in GTA 1, it is the fastest car in the game, along with the [[Meteor]], and features responsive cornering and brakes, making it a desirable vehicle to drive. It is also the only car in the game which gives a [[Police Bribes|Cop Bribe]] when [[Crusher|crushed]].

==GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories== In all the games of this era, the police car has been known as the "'''Police'''", with the exception of GTA Advance and GTA Vice City Stories. In GTA Advance, it is referred to as the "'''Police Car'''", and in GTA Vice City Stories, it is called the "'''VCPD Cruiser'''". Throughout all GTA III era games, police cars are very fast, with excellent handling, and moderate durability. They have two sirens, one default "long-whirl", and the "rotating-weep", triggered by holding the horn button. The player will receive a [[Shotgun]] with 5 rounds of ammunition after entering a Police car. ====GTA III & GTA Liberty City Stories==== The Police Car in these two games resembles a cross between a Chevrolet Caprice and a Ford Crown Victoria. In [[GTA III]], the Police Car was originally intended to have a livery similar to the then-current NYPD police cars, however, in the final version, they have standard black and white livery. The Police Cars in [[GTA Liberty City Stories]] feature the livery intended for GTA III cars, albeit with black-and-white stripes, rather than blue-and-white.

====GTA Vice City & GTA Vice City Stories==== In these two games, the vehicle resembles a 1980's Ford LTD, and both feature a green and white livery. In the beta versions, the vehicle was white with red and blue stripes along each side, resembling early squad cars from the Miami-Dade Police Department.

File:VCPD Cruiser (GTAVCS) (front).jpg|"VCPD Cruiser" ([[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|Vice City Stories]]) ([[:File:VCPD Cruiser (GTAVCS) (rear).jpg|Rear quarter view]]).
====GTA San Andreas==== There are three variations in [[GTA San Andreas]]. The [[Los Santos Police Department]] and [[San Fierro Police Department]] versions have the same build, based on the [[Premier]], and markings for their respective cities); the [[Las Venturas Police Department]] version generally resembles a 1981-1990 Chevrolet Caprice, with the sides and back reminiscent of the 1980-1989 Dodge Diplomat. All police vehicles feature a standard black and white livery. The police officers in the countryside employ a large, four-by-four [[Ranger]], based on the [[Rancher]], for pursuit on rough terrain.

File:Police (GTASA) (Las Venturas) (front).jpg|[[Las Venturas Police Department|LVPD]] "Police" ([[GTA San Andreas]]) ([[:File:Police (GTASA) (Las Venturas) (rear).jpg|Rear quarter view]]).
====GTA Advance==== The GTA Advance rendition of the Police is designed to bear a likeness to the Police from GTA III, with a generally rounded profile and a black-white paintjob. Unlike other renditions, the car is substantially more speedy, with a top speed matched with the [[Banshee]]'s. Being a mid-sized car, crushing the Police will only award the player with a base amount of $532.

== GTA IV == In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], there are two similar but separate police cars - the [[Police Patrol]] and [[Police Cruiser]]. Two more police cars, a [[Police Buffalo|Buffalo-based Police Cruiser]] and a high-performance [[Police Stinger]], are available in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'s multiplayer. The player can get in any police car and access the police computer while stationary. Here, the player can access [[Most Wanted]] missions, or locate and apprehend nearby criminals. The siren on the Police Car features some variations, including the classic "code-3 siren" wail, the yelp when the siren is activated and the horn button held down, and, if the siren is turned off and the horn button held down, a distorted "crowd control" air horn, as used in real life. The player can dial 911 to summon the police car by luring them to a false alarm. Stealing the car (while the officer searches for any incidents), will attract a one-star [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|Wanted level]]. In some places, a police car can be stolen from a parking lot or curbside without incurring a Wanted level.
