Police stations are locations in the Grand Theft Auto series where the local law enforcement and their vehicles are located. Some police stations in the series also have helipads and even double as towing impounds. The main reason for a police department in the game is to act as a spawn location when the player gets busted. In the 3D Universe, it was restricted to one island or city (San Andreas). In the HD Universe, there are multiple stations per island or city (in Grand Theft Auto V, however there is only one per small town).

3D Universe

Liberty City

The Liberty City Police Department is headquartered in Torrington. The building is unique for having a helipad on its roof. The interiors of any of these stations are not accessible to the player.

Vice City

The Vice City Police Department is headquartered in Washington Beach. It is the only accessible police station in Vice City. The main entrance allows visitors but within the headquarters are restricted to only police. If the player attempts to go past the main entrance, they will gain a two-star wanted level. However, the player can wear a cop uniform to access the whole interior without being wanted.

San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, there is a total of seven police stations under the command of the San Andreas Police Department. Three are situated in major cities, while the remaining four are located in rural areas of the State of San Andreas.

The Los Santos Police Headquarters, the Dillimore station, and the Las Venturas Police Headquarters are the only stations accessible to the player. Access to the station is unrestricted, but if the player draws a firearm, they immediately gain a two-star wanted level. Of an interesting note, the Dillimore station is exactly the same as the LSPD headquarters, but with different officers.

HD Universe

Liberty City

The Liberty City Police Department is large and organized, possessing 16 police stations throughout Liberty City. All stations are inaccessible.

Los Santos

"The LSPD don't mess around. There are no three strikes in Los Santos; one strike and you're on your way to either jail or the morgue. If you are arrested, you'll have your ammunition and body armor confiscated, be taken to the nearest police station, and will have to post bail on release."
