The Mission Row Police Station is a branch of the Los Santos Police Department in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

The police station is a modern three-story building, demarcated by Sinner Street, Vespucci Boulevard, Atlee Street and Little Bighorn Avenue in Mission Row, Downtown Los Santos. Like other police stations in the game, the Mission Row Police Station serves as a respawn point if the player is busted in the area. It is also the location for the Impound Garage.

This is the only accessible station in Grand Theft Auto V and it is the first police station to be accessible in the HD Universe. In single player, the player can enter it through any door. In multiplayer, however, the same can only enter via the roof and back door after the Heists Update. Players online can now discover new parts of the station, however, the main front doors and the roof-access doors remain locked. The unlocked doors can be found when entering the station from the east, where the small automatic gate opens, the doors are down some stairs. The doors were locked after the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 Update, rendering the interior inaccessible.

Gunfights and car chases will often occur outside the station. If a chase begins, it is not uncommon for police to commandeer the player's vehicle and drive away in it. To avoid this, don't park in the parking spaces outside the station.

If the player listens carefully while standing in the lobby, sounds of typing, phones ringing, and even police radio broadcasts are heard here. However, these barely sound if the traffic on the street corner is noisy. The police scanner is also present in the building, albeit with less quotes, at just 16.[1]

As a restricted area

Going behind the desk in the main lobby or climbing the stairs in the back will instantly grant the player a 3 star wanted level. And if any NPCs are attacked in the lobby, a 2 star wanted level will be attained.

Flying over the station in Story Mode will have the player receive a warning that they are flying over a restricted airspace and will be shot down. Nothing is used to shoot down the player if they linger, though.

Influence

The Mission Row Police Station is modeled after the LAPD Olympic Station in Los Angeles. The LAPD has an actual police station and division called Mission, which is most likely imitated in Grand Theft Auto V. In addition, the station bears a close resemblance to the Weazel News Building in Little Seoul, which is also based on the LAPD Olympic Station.

Tips

A body armor and a Sprunk vending machine are located inside the reception area, making this a handy health and armor-regenerating location for the characters, particularly Franklin, whose initial safehouse is the closest.
