For the GTA V counterpart, see San Andreas Coast Guard (HD Universe).

The San Andreas Coast Guard is a law enforcement agency appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The San Andreas Coast Guard service appears in GTA San Andreas. They operate in Coast Guard boats around the coasts of Los Santos, Las Venturas and San Fierro. Despite having their own boats with Coast Guard markings and registrations, these boats don't respond as police vehicles when the player is wanted and the boats aren't treated as police vehicles. Instead, an unarmed civilian will spawn driving the boat as if it were a civilian vehicle.

The coastguard also operates Predator boats. They will only spawn when the player has a wanted level of 2 stars or more. While these boats are operated by regular police officers (whose character models are dependent on the location they spawn) and are treated as police vehicles, they will announce themselves as coastguard over the loudspeaker to the player when wanted.[1] Two sets of dialogue are played dependent on whether the wanted player is in the water or in a boat. Only two police officers spawn in the Predator, a driver and a passenger who is permanently fixed to the boat's stern. The passenger is armed with a pistol and presumably operates the loudspeaker, given the loudspeaker will no longer sound when he is killed.
