Does anyone have any reference to this agency as being legitimate? Currently I'm entertaining the notion that it is a branch of NOOSE, unless anyone has a different opinion. Gman harmon 22:48, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

What I want to know is if anyone can reference that it even exists. Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 04:45, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
The only reference I can find is a decal on the tail boom of the Annihilator and maybe on some NOOSE vehicles, but that's it. No other mention of it is made anywhere else. -Gman harmon 16:52, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
If it is only found on the Annihilator then it would maybe be better to just list it as miscellaneous information within the article on itself. Hardrock182 17:05, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
I can confirm that it appears on the Patriots used by law enforcement when a four-star rating is achieved. They often follow you at FIA... C-d-rom 17:34, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
LCPIA is on all the NOOSE vehicles - you can see it if you zoom in on this image of the NOOSE Cruiser. I don't know why - it could be the original name for NOOSE, it could be a part of NOOSE, or NOOSE be a part of it, they may share vehicles etc. I would suggest simply explaining that it is not known why LCPIA is on the side of NOOSE vehicles. Don't say "it is a part of NOOSE" unless there is something to point to that. Feel free to outline some possibilities though, so long as you use {{speculation}}.

I can't help but notice that the LCPIA on the door is much larger than the little LC NOOSE on the side of the front. Hopefully R* didn't throw that in to confuse, that it will be explained in upcoming LC based games (like CW and the DLC). Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 00:05, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Another possibility could be a Rockstar in-joke, and LCPIA could be a reference to the American ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, previously INS, Immigration and Naturalization Services) agency, since Niko is an illegal immigrant in Liberty City. As Gboyers stated, this is merely speculation at this point. -Gman harmon 16:55, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
