Portland Police Station
Portland police station
The Portland police department in GTA III.
|Location:||Portland View, Portland|
The Portland police station or Trenton Police (as is known in the GTA III website) is a Liberty City Police Department station in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
Located in the district of Portland View in the island of Portland, Liberty City, the Portland police station is the only police station in the whole of Portland, serving as the only respawn point for players who have been arrested either within Portland, or in Staunton or Shoreside Vale before they are unlocked. The main building itself is designed with an olden police precinct-like appearance based on the NYPD Precinct 18 police station in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, and is identical to the main building of the Shoreside Vale police department.
The police station spawns several vehicles in the games it appears in. In GTA III, two "Police" cars will normally appear in front of the station, occasionally locked. In GTA Liberty City Stories, three police cars spawn in the same area. The station is otherwise unremarkable, having no accessible interior or additional pickups. The police department neighbors Sweeney General Hospital, Portland's only hospital.
Early pre-release screenshots of GTA III hint of a completely different design of the Portland police department, being depicted as a smaller, brown, double-storey structure.
