Description

Located in Downtown Vice City, the northernmost district in the Vice City Mainland, the police station serves as the respawn point for players who are arrested within the northern half of Vice City Mainland. The station itself is by far the largest in the city, occupying a massive white, V-shaped corner building, also serving as the SWAT's headquarters, and being the only police station in the city with a helipad. The police station is also based across the road from Vice City's only fire department. Like police stations in Little Havana and in Vice Point, it is inaccessible.

The police station spawns several vehicles in both GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. In both games, a "Police" car/VCPD Cruiser spawns along the west side of the building, while a Police Maverick/VCPD Maverick will spawn on the helipad (in GTA Vice City Stories, this does not occur until the player unlocks Vice City Beach). GTA Vice City Stories includes two more vehicles in the locale: an Enforcer behind the building, and a VCPD Wintergreen on the south side. In GTA Vice City Stories, several pickups can also be found on the rooftop of the station: An AK-47 and two Rampage trigger (one under the walkway to the helipad and the other on the northern end of the frontal facade.

The building itself is apparently based in part on the former Walgreen Drug Store in the Downtown Miami Historic District.
