The Declasse Police Patrol is a Merit modified for police service in Grand Theft Auto IV. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, it is depicted as a generic police car, possibly representing both GTA IV's Police Patrol and the Police Cruiser.

Description Edit

The Police Patrol's front is modeled after the eighth generation Chevrolet Impala Police Edition while the back resembles a BMW 318i E36.
Police2 badges
The Patrol, as the name implies, is generally used as a patrol vehicle rather than a pursuit vehicle, due to it being slower and heavier than the Police Cruiser, however the acceleration is about the same. The Police Patrol has good handling, with minimal spin and smooth turning, but has a tendency to roll over whilst turning at high speed.

Like the Cruiser, the Patrol's livery is clearly based on those of the New York Police Department's vehicles.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Patrol bears LAPD-style markings, rather than the LCPD style, making the car more immediately recognizable as a police car via the DS interface; the car also incorporates GTA IV's police computer for use in vigilante side missions, and being the defacto police car in the game, is the fastest sedan-based law-enforcement vehicle in the game, with responsive controls and good durability. In cutscenes, the car in its GTA IV form may be seen (alongside the Police Cruiser), but is depicted with omitted rear quarter glasses.

The PSP depiction of the Police Patrol in GTA CW looks more similar to its GTA IV counterpart. It differs in which "LCPD" is written on the roof the car, unlike the DS/iOS versions.

Mission Appearances Edit

The Police Patrol may be used in mission requiring a police computer (Search and Delete, Portrait of a Killer and Smackdown), if it spawns instead of the Police Cruiser. It may also spawn in Crime and Punishment, however the Cruiser responds to a call in Beachgate

The Police Patrol may appear in missions where the players obtains a wanted level; 

 The Police Patrol also appears as roadblocks and transport for NOOSE in Three Leaf Clover

The Police Patrol appears as part of Aiden O'Malley's prisoner transport in Tunnel of Death

The Police Patrol can be used in the Most Wanted and Vigilante side missions.
