"I think he's about to get paroled..."
Tommy Vercetti

No Escape? is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which protagonist Tommy Vercetti performs independently. The mission is the first asset mission for the Malibu Club.


Tommy needs a safe-cracker for the bank job he is planning. Ken Rosenberg suggests a man named Cam Jones. However, Jones is currently in police custody awaiting transfer, so Tommy decides to "parole" Jones.

Tommy heads to the police station in Washington Beach and puts on a police uniform. He must not have any weapon drawn, otherwise the police will open fire on him after their first warning. After locating a key card in the station offices, Tommy heads down to the holding cells where Jones is located. Tommy swipes the key card and releases Jones from the cells.

At this point, the police realize Tommy is an imposter and open fire on him and Jones. Tommy and Jones flee the station and drive to a nearby Pay 'n' Spray. After losing the police, Tommy drives Jones to his home in Little Havana. Tommy drops Jones off, who agrees to be a safe-cracker for the heist.


  • Do not waste time killing all the police officers after Tommy frees Jones, as they will respawn indefinitely.
  • A Sentinel is spawned to the right of the police station when Tommy and Jones leave, which can be used to escape. Note that any car can be brought to the station and used for escape as well.
  • A police bribe is located in the alleyway where Back Alley Brawl takes place.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Break Cam Jones out of police custody!

  • If the plyer completed Two Bit Hit before this mission. The Havana outfit will be put behind an invisible wall and it will not be obtainable. To avoid this, complete this mission, Cop Land and The Job missions before Two Bit Hit. It was patched on the Mac version and the mobile ports.


  • The song that can be heard playing in the background during the opening cutscene is "Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)" by Hashim. The song doesn't play inside the Malibu Club during normal gameplay, but is featured on the in-game radio station Wildstyle, as well as the third trailer for the game.
  • The name of the mission could be a nod to the 1994 Ray Liotta film of the same name.
  • In the original game, the player receives a four-star wanted level after releasing Jones from the cells. In the mobile version, this is reduced to three stars.
  • This is the only time in the game where the VCPD officers are armed with Uzis.
