[[Police Cruiser]]
[[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 [[Grand Theft Auto IV|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]] and [[VCPD Wintergreen]] police bikes and the [[Predator]] police boat. ==GTA 1 — GTA 2== ===GTA 1 & GTA London=== 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, with a 1990s NYPD livery; the [[San Andreas in GTA 1|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 (like its real-life San Francisco counterpart) 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 [[Personal Computer|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'''".

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]]. File:CopCar-GTA2-Larabie.png|[[Ray Larabie]]'s original design for GTA 2's "Cop Car".

File:CopCar-GTA2.png|[[Anywhere City Police Department|Anywhere City]] "Cop Car" ([[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]]) ([[:File:CopCar-GTA2-ingame.jpg|In-game, with lights]]). ==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. These stats make it great for drifting. 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 [[Grand Theft Auto III|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 [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]] feature the livery intended for GTA III cars, albeit with black-and-white stripes, rather than blue-and-white. File:Policecar-GTAIII-beta-side.png|Early pre-release depiction of GTA III's police car, featuring a lower profile and the 1990s/early 2000s NYPD color scheme.

File:Police-GTALCS-front.jpg|LCPD "Police" ([[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]]) ([[:File:Police-GTALCS-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]). ====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, much like the Miami-Dade Police Department (although there rare claims that white police cars can be found after achieving 100% completion of [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]). During development, the vehicle was white with red and blue stripes along each side, resembling squad cars from the Miami Beach Police Department. Reports say that the paint scheme was changed in development to the green and white scheme because of fears that players would not be able to tell the difference between civilian cars and the VCPD cars. In the PC version of GTA Vice City, a gaming bug causes rare all-white police cars to spawn at car parks around Vice City. The glitch only appears to occur when using certain third-party 100% completion savegames. File:Policecar-GTAVC-beta-side.png|Early pre-release depiction of [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|GTA Vice City]]'s police car, featuring a livery more alike to that of the Miami Beach Police Department.

File:VCPDCruiser-GTAVCS-front.jpg|"VCPD Cruiser" ([[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|GTA Vice City Stories]]) ([[:File:VCPDCruiser-GTAVCS-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]). ====GTA San Andreas==== There are three variations in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]]. The [[LSPD in GTA III Era|Los Santos Police Department]] and [[San Fierro Police Department]] versions have the same build (with the San Fierro version having slightly higher suspension, most likely due to San Fierro's hilly streets with steep inclines like it's real life counter-part, San Francisco), 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. The closest civilian car in the game is the [[Tahoma]]. 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-SFPD-beta-front.png|Early design for the [[San Fierro Police Department|SFPD]] "Police" car which bears more of a resemblance to the Chevrolet Caprice than its final design.

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 — GTA Chinatown Wars == === 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.

While having reverted to a panda body color scheme, the car incorporates GTA IV's police computer for use in [[vigilante]] side missions. Although the car is implied to be similar to GTA IV's Declasse-based Police Patrol, pre-rendered depictions of the Police Patrol ''and'' the Police Cruiser are used for "[[busted]]" sequences in the game. == GTA V == [[Grand Theft Auto V]] is slated to feature at least two variants of police cars, one used by the [[LSPD in GTA V|Los Santos Police Department]] and the other a "Sheriff" variant likely to be featured in rural segments of San Andreas. The LSPD car has assumed several designs over the course of GTA V's development. Originally depicted in the debut trailer for the game to be based on GTA IV's [[Police Cruiser]] (with a reskin and a simple light bar), the car was portrayed in later pre-release screenshots being redesigned with a new Vapid-branded body of a similar size, which is also adopted for GTA V's [[taxi]]s. Both these versions of the car feature "Obey and Survive" mottos, in addition to a logo bearing a picture of [[Bigfoot]] in the bottom right corner of the Shield, possibly a reference to the [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] myth. A third design for LSPD's police car based on the [[wp:Ford Taurus (sixth generation)#Police Interceptor Sedan|2009–present Ford Taurus Police Interceptor Sedan]] was unveiled in the April 30, 2013 character trailer. It is currently unknown if this variant complements the second LSPD police car design. File:PoliceCruiser-GTAV-trailer.jpg|An LSPD [[Police Cruiser]] in the first GTA V trailer.

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 GTA London 1969 and GTA London 1961 are known as "Coppers".

The police officers in the countryside employ a large, four-by-four Ranger, based on the Rancher, for pursuit on rough terrain.

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 — GTA Chinatown Wars

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 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.

GTA Chinatown Wars

Police cars in GTA Chinatown Wars are simply dubbed "Police Patrols", the same name for those seen in GTA IV. While having reverted to a panda body color scheme, the car incorporates GTA IV's police computer for use in vigilante side missions. Although the car is implied to be similar to GTA IV's Declasse-based Police Patrol, pre-rendered depictions of the Police Patrol and the Police Cruiser are used for "busted" sequences in the game.

GTA V

Grand Theft Auto V is slated to feature at least two variants of police cars, one used by the Los Santos Police Department and the other a "Sheriff" variant likely to be featured in rural segments of San Andreas.

The LSPD car has assumed several designs over the course of GTA V's development. Originally depicted in the debut trailer for the game to be based on GTA IV's Police Cruiser (with a reskin and a simple light bar), the car was portrayed in later pre-release screenshots being redesigned with a new Vapid-branded body of a similar size, which is also adopted for GTA V's taxis.

Trivia

  • The design of GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories' police cars serves as the basis of those featured in the Manhunt series.
  • In GTA IV, if the siren takes a hit it will begin to make many different high-pitched noises similar to its normal siren, but severely distorted. Other cars also won't pull over if you are driving a police car with a distorted siren.
  • In the beginning of the game of GTA San Andreas, an LSPD Police shows up. But the rims are different, similar to that of the Police and Taxi in GTA Vice City.

Locations

Police cars are usually parked in front of police stations and are often locked.
