Yesterday I was responsible for all of the rewording of the LCPD page and adding new content such as Senior Management, Uniforms, Equipment, Logo, Rank Structure. Hope your happy with it. If you need anything improved just ask.

where'd you get the rank structure from?Sharpie14 16:49, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Afraid Goof

* At higher wanted levels (five and six stars), the LCPD seem to begin disappearing as more FIB and NOOSE officers begin to show up. This may indicate that the LCPD are too afraid of death to take on the player. - I don't know so much, I think they disappear to make room for the higher levels of law enforcement (NOOSE/FIB). Thoughts? Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 06:17, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

True, when the SWAT teams get called in IRL, the police begin phasing out. GeneralGoose 14:26, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

LCPD in Alderney

I've noticed that the police cruisers in Alderney bear the LCPD symbol on the top. Does anybody know if R* was just too lazy to make an Alderney State Police Department or if LCPD are supposed to be in Alderney?

I'd say that the LCPD is supposed to be in Alderney, but I mostly think it's a little thing they forgot to fix, or if they did do an Alderney cop model, it's a glitch. DarkHedge 22:03, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Alderney has different officers roaming the streets too with light blue tops and white hats,so i don't see why they didn't include new cop cruisers.--Snake. 17:30, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

I doubt laziness is remotely a reason because if they figured out how to spawn rich vehicles in rich areas and Jamaican Huntleys in Jamaican territories, why not Alderney police cars in Alderney? They have reasons but their reasons are unknown.--Spaceeinstein 21:14, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Yer I reckon they could of added new Police Cars.--Snake. 22:40, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

It's kinda inexplicable though, I mean, how much more disc space would it have taken on a DVD-ROM (forget PS3 BR-ROM) to have the NJ State Police Interceptor knock-off (which actually looks alarmingly similar to the NOOSE Cruiser anyway). If it came down to having to cut one more car to add an "Alderny Cruiser," the Faction and Sabre are incredibly similar... would we have really missed one or the other? / Szebrine 17:27, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
maybe lcpd means liberty community police dept. because on a police station it says lcpd- community police department. this could mean liberty community is liberty city and alderney, so there is 2 departments that make the community dept. up
(just a suggestion)
Hmm. Never thought of that. That's a good conclusion to come up with, albeit unlikely. MAINEiac4434 22:50, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
I saw this mod on GTAGarage.com where a light blue Esperanto police cruiser would spawn, tough with LCPD badging, i thought i would fit in like a glove Alderney.

Officers who wear sky blue shirts

I have Simple Native Trainer, and the files in there say that officers who wear sky blue shirts are traffic enforcement officers. User:88FanNASCAR 17:50, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

They're not. Why would they only spawn in Alderney? MAINEiac4434 23:24, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
Because those are Alderney State Police Officers, who also wear sky blue shirts. Look in the game's files. There's an LCPD officer who wears a sky blue shirt, and he has a different badge than LCPD officers, and, also, if you look closely at the LCPD patch, right above it, you'll see a "Traffic" patch. Take a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aajjmiDqToc 2:37-3:16 will show you the details of the LCPD Traffic uniform. 88FanNASCAR August 22, 2010, 17:37 (UTC)
I don't have any sort of modifications, because I have a PS3. However, I've never seen any police officer wearing light blue other than Alderney. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough? MAINEiac4434 23:00, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
No, you're right officers in Alderney bear different appearances to those in Liberty City as seen in this image. --Gta-mysteries Talk 23:14, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, take a look at this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SDOW9cw1qQ It's a trailer for The Ballad of Gay Tony, not a mod. Pause it at 2:22, you can see an officer with a sky blue shirt, exact same one as in the LCPDFR video. You can't see the patch, but you can clearly see the different badge. As for their location, maybe they're beta officers? I don't know, to tell you the truth, I haven't seen them either. But they're there (in the games files at least). 88FanNASCAR August 23, 2010, 12:47 (UTC)
today i did a mission in the lost and damned where you have to hide behind the tollbooth to attack a drug convoy and the cop in the cutscene was wearing a sky blue shirt and i think a different patch (i have xbox 360 version so it's not a mod).Sharpie14 17:39, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah i also noticed that, lol he wouldn't let a giving woman through becuse he didn't have exact change. :D

LCPD is a gang?

In the in-game files, they're classified as a gang, but are they technically really a gang in the traditional sense? I think the info box at the top of the page needs to be changed... User:88FanNASCAR 3:18, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

The police had always been grouped in with gangs but they will not behave like one. The grouping is to make it easier to control the spawn rates and spawn locations of "pedestrian" cops. The police in the U.S. shouldn't be considered a gang based on this definition defining gangs as a criminal group.--spaceeinstein 06:50, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Removing Rank Structure

I think the Rank Structure should be removed since it has no source, and I believe that it's simply been copied from the NYPD Wikipedia.--Thomas (talk|edits) 02:49, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
