The Brute Police Stockade (also known as LCPD Stockade) is an inmate transport for the police in Grand Theft Auto IV.

The vehicle shares its body design with the Securicar and the Enforcer (based on the International 4700 Series armored van), but has extra windows on the rear section and comes with a custom LCPD inmate transport livery. Interestingly, it is equipped with a red and blue light bar (which is against LCPD code, as Police Cruisers and Patrols carry red and white lights, just like NYPD code). The rear axle of this vehicle is also unique as compared to most of the heavy vehicles in GTA IV, as instead of having double wheels for each side of the rear axle, this vehicle has only one. This vehicle does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake. As with most police vehicles, the player can access the Police Computer from the Police Stockade.

The vehicle comes in a white primary color for most of its bodywork and a blue secondary color applied to the lower portions and front fenders, the roof area and in the form of a thin stripe passing through the sides and rear. It uses a different set of industrials wheels compared to the Securicar and the Enforcer, being derived from trucks such as the Benson, the Mule and the Phantom.

The Police Stockade performs identical to the Securicar and the Enforcer, sharing the same top speed, acceleration and braking power. Like the aforementioned vehicles, the Police Stockade has a steel mesh covering the windshield and the rear is immune to bullets.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto IV


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • The Stockade can be stolen and taken to a safehouse in the mission in "Tunnel of Death", but cannot be readily stolen in "Three Leaf Clover" — the player must push the Stockade to a safehouse with another vehicle if they wish to acquire it via this mission.
    • To obtain it during the mission Tunnel of Death method, the player needs to push it to the Alderney Safehouse with the Presidente, and then proceed to complete the mission, or just kill Packie after the tunnel cutscene and steal it.
    • Alternatively, the player can acquire a heavy vehicle and push both vehicles to keep the Police Stockade without failing the mission. The Phantom that spawns in Port Tudor is the best choice, but one needs to take it first before dropping the Police Stockade.
    • In the PS3 version of the game, the Stockade despawns in Three Leaf Clover, rendering it unable to be obtained.
  • The Stockade can also be seen during GTA IV's Multiplayer "Team Mafiya Work" mode, when Kenny Petrovic tasks the players with killing Sergey — Sergey is being transported in a Police Stockade, which can be obtained by killing the driver through the side window, or by damaging it enough to force its occupants out.


  • If the player has stored one in a parking space, sometimes a cop will target a pedestrian and the pedestrian will get in the back of the van and a cop will get in the front and drive off.
  • On the doors of the Police Stockade, one can read the numbers KSC-303. This is a reference to the protagonist of the Japanese zombie action film "Versus" known as Prisoner KSC2-303.
  • Despite not appearing in TBoGT, it is still seen in the Weazel News special report and during the introduction.
