The Enforcer is a law enforcement vehicle featured in the following games:
- Grand Theft Auto III
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (as the VCPD Enforcer)
- Grand Theft Auto IV
- Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (as the NOOSE Enforcer)
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.
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 , 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.
In the HD Universe, the Enforcer shares a chassis with the Securicar and Police Stockade (based on an armored 1989-2001 International 4700 Series, but the front turning signals have been omitted). It bears the NOOSE livery, and "Liberty City Tactical Response Unit" markings. It comes with a black finish and cannot be washed at a car wish like every other Emergency Vehicles. It is labeled as being manufactured by Brute as an 8000cc "Turbocharged" and also bears "8000 Stockade" badging. As the player, the horn sounds like the Mule and/or the Yankee.
The vehicle is heavily armored with an Impregnable Armor, featuring "DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT" as a company slogan) brand badges present to the lower back of the vehicle's cab), rendering it almost completely bulletproof; while most vehicles can be destroyed by a shotgun shell to the fuel tank, this does not apply to the Enforcer. The vehicle is still vulnerable to explosion damage and while a steel mesh grating over the windshield protects the driver and front passenger from frontal assault, the cabin's side windows are not armored. It does not have a Police Computer, unlike the other Law Enforcement Vehicles (except for the Annihilator and Police Maverick) because it is used by the NOOSE Tactical Response Unit Officers who are only called for interventions.
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 wheel for each side of the rear axle, this vehicle has only one wheel for each side of the rear axle which is uncommon for most of the heavy vehicles. This vehicle does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake.
The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition of the NOOSE Enforcer leans towards a van-based design similar to a Boxville, sharing the Alphamail's body design. The truck features a simple red-to-blue light-bar and a white stripe down the truck, presumably leading to the seal on the side, most likely reading 'NOOSE'.
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.

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.
