The Enforcer is a law enforcement vehicle featured in the following games:

It is manufactured by Brute in the HD Universe.

It is called out once the player has reached a four-star wanted level (three in Chinatown Wars), containing SWAT Officers (or, in the case of GTA IV, NOOSE Tactical Response Unit Officers). It has seating for up to four people, including the driver.


3D Universe

Between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, the Enforcer is designed as a truck-based, long chassis emergency response vehicle, apparently based on a 1980s-1990s NYPD Freightliner "E33" Emergency Response Unit truck [1][2], similar in body construction, livery design and minor details and also on the Ford L-Series; differences were negligible between games.

The Enforcer bears "POLICE" markings, except in GTA Vice City and Vice City Stories, where it has "SWAT" markings (as some forces ceased to officially use the term SWAT over time, this may be seen as a nod to historical accuracy). Police liveries of the Enforcer depend largely on those found on local police cars, although for GTA Vice City Stories, the game's Enforcer features a black-and-white livery, contrary to the VCPD Cruiser's green-and-white livery. Much like the "Police" car, the Enforcer in GTA III is revealed in a pre-release screenshot to originally feature a blue-and-white livery; it can be assumed that the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City may have prompted the same recoloring that gave the vehicle its present black-and-white color.

As with all emergency/police vehicles, the Enforcer is equipped with sirens and lights which will cause other traffic to move out of the way when active. Although supposedly heavily armored, the truck is not bulletproof, although it is relatively resilient.


The vehicle's overall performance is average-to-good. While large and heavy, the Enforcer's powerful engine allows it to accelerate well and reach high top speeds, while its cornering can be properly negotiated via the use of the handbrake. Its low clearance, small wheels and heavy weight, however, make it unsuited on rough terrain where it may roll easily. In some games, the player gains armor upon entering the Enforcer.


GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories

  • Parked in the backlot of the Staunton Island police headquarters. The gate into the area will only open if the player has a police vehicle. Alternately, the player can enter around the gate using the elevated veranda of the station's front entrance.

Obtaining the Enforcer in GTA IV

GTA IV is the only game in the series so far where the Enforcer does not have a spawn point at any police station, making it, along with the FIB Buffalo (without using Cheats) one of the hardest vehicles to obtain in the game. A quick and simple way to obtain one, however, is to approach the Middle Park East Safehouse and head down the block into the grounds of the Civilization Committee. Immediately entering the grounds of this building attracts a four-star wanted level. When an Enforcer begins to appear, the player can simply kill the NOOSE agents in it, and steal the Enforcer. They can also steal it in Francis International Airport, when you are automatically given 4 starts for trespassing. Once you have acquired it, park it into the parking spaces at the Middle Park East Safehouse. It is to note that Body Armor is recommended to have before using this tip, as NOOSE agents are heavily armed.  



  • In GTA III and GTA Vice City, Enforcers have red-and-white lightbars; GTA San Andreas Enforcers feature red-and-amber lightbars. Both lightbars, however, flash red and blue when active.
  • A unique Enforcer in Give Me Liberty is a separate model of a Rumpo.
  • In the Introduction (GTA III) the Enforcer that is on fire and flipped to its side on Callahan Bridge, is the Enforcer from GTA LCS. The main difference is the color of the word "POLICE" and darker shade of black.
  • The Enforcer's grill in the Mobile version is remastered.

GTA Vice City

  • In GTA III and GTA Vice City, Enforcers have red-and-white lightbars; GTA San Andreas Enforcers feature red-and-amber lightbars. Both lightbars, however, flash red and blue when active.

GTA San Andreas

  • In GTA San Andreas, the Enforcer has LSPD (Los Santos Police Department) markings, regardless of where in the state it appears.

GTA IV and Episodes

  • In GTA IV, when you get a 5 or 6 star wanted level, the back doors of the enforcer will open revealing two NOOSE officers. If you drive behind them then they will open fire from the back of the truck. This is similar to other police who will fire from their car.
  • In GTA IV, the Enforcer has no windows but when blown up, windows appear in its "wreck form" just like the Police Stockade.
  • A pre-GTA IV Enforcer has been featured in Manhunt 2 as a van for the Project Militia.
  • In TBOGT, it takes at least 10 APC cannon or Explosive Shotgun rounds to trigger the Enforcer to burn and explode.
  • After taking severe damage, the GTA IV Enforcer burns within the driver cab before exploding, just like the Securicar and the Police Stockade.
  • In GTA IV the Enforcer can be sold at S&M Auto Sales where as the other NOOSE Vehicles, Police Vehicles and the FIB Buffalo can't.
  • If the player enters an Enforcer, he/she will receive a full Body Armor if he/she didn't have it before. If the player lost some of his/her armor, it will be 100% again, except in GTA IV where the player receive 20% of Body Armor when he/she enters (it works similar as the Health in case of Ambulances).
