Barbara Schternvart is one of the six girlfriends available in San Andreas, and can be located in Los Quebrados, just outside the police station. To gain her interest, you will need to look like her co-workers; rotund and fat. This is negated if you already have collected all of the oysters at this point. When you begin dating, you will be able to keep your weapons when Busted anywhere in San Andreas as a bonus. Upon gaining 100% with Barbara, you receive a cop outfit and access to her Police Ranger, though there is no difference to those on the streets.
Barbara was voiced by Danielle Lee Greaves.
- Players can take her out on dates between 00:00 and 04:00 or around about 1:00 and sometimes between 16:00 and 04:00.
- Driving date
- Whilst on a driving date, Barbara prefers CJ to drive at roughly the same speed as regular traffic (with too slow being more acceptable than too fast).

- At 100%, a police uniform is delivered to Carl's wardrobe.
- Barbara has two children, who are unseen in game, and she claims "that she used to be married to a real bastard", which would explain why Barbara is possible to date. However, another quote, "My husband called me a control freak", suggests that she is dating CJ secretly, however another quote, "Hi, I'm Barbara. I'm divorced and have two children. You interested?" declares that she is actually divorced, but still refers to her ex as her husband.
- Barbara's Ranger's license plate reads CUFFS.
