The player obtaining a Good Citizen Bonus for knocking over a Patrol Invest Group security guard in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

The Good Citizen Bonus is a small cash reward ($50) given to the player for knocking over criminals that are being chased by police officers. The player can use their fists, Brass Knuckles, a Baseball Bat or a Nightstick to knock over the criminal. However, if the player chooses to run over the criminal with a car, or the player chooses to use another weapon on the street criminal, they will receive an automatic wanted level. However, the player must be careful; if the player accidently attacks the police officer instead of the criminal or gang member, the player will receive an instant wanted level. Also, the gang member will try to attack the player once he gets up.

The Good Citizen Bonus appears in GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, but is absent in GTA San Andreas and the GTA IV Era.


  • There is a glitch where the player can repeatedly stomp on the criminal and recieve the $50 bonus until the body disappears, even if the criminal is dead.
  • There are rare occasions where a normal pedestrian will attack a police officer. Attacking these pedestrians will not give the player the Good Citizen Bonus. Instead, the player will receive an instant wanted level.
