The Declasse Police Transporter is a law enforcement transport vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Police Transporter's design is based on a passenger version of the second generation Burrito, issued for law-enforcement purposes.

The vehicle is fitted with several protective parts, including a bullbar, barred windows and bulletproof windshield. The vehicle is permanently fitted with a rotating halogen incandescent emergency light bar, similar to the Interceptor's permanent LED sirens, and is available in a white-black scheme with the LSPD badge on the front doors and driver-side rear door, along with other police markings.

As its name implies, the vehicle is intended for transporting police officers to where it is required. However, the vehicle is only seen in roadblocks and rarely pursues the player.

Entering the Police Transporter gives the player a SMG.

Grand Theft Auto V

While the Police Transporter's performance appears to be roughly similar to that of the Burrito, it gains raised suspensions, making it easy to control over uneven terrains and rarely loses balance when taking corners. The vehicle is more protective for the occupants thanks to its window platings and bulletproof windshield, allowing to survive higher wanted levels, especially Police SUVs and roadblocks, since these are usually deadly for the player if stops near them. However, one must be aware that the side platings leaves small gaps. Drive-By Shooting on a Police Transporter will not be easy, as the bullets will be blocked by the side door platings, but not by the windshield or the rear doors.

The Transporter appears to be powered by a transversely laid, single overhead camshaft Inline-4, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive layout. The sound emitted when at idle and accelerating sounds like a typical low-revving diesel engine, roughly similar to other vans. It also shares the same engine model as the Youga, albeit with more detail.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Police Transporters only spawn when the player has received a wanted level of three star or higher, blocking at least a lane or two of the road. Whenever a Police Transporter is parked blocking the road, there is usually a Spike Strip just after it. To obtain the van, one can shoot the van's lone officer and get in.
    • Rarely, Police Transporters are seen chasing the player when staying near a roadblock for a short period of time, as the officer will aboard the Transporter and start chasing the player.
  • Sometimes spawns at the train station under the Olympic Freeway on Strawberry Avenue between 20:00 PM and 5:00 AM (Along with the Police Buffalo, Police BikeUnmarked Cruiser, and Interceptor)

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Police Transporter only appear during a wanted level of three star or higher.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V


  • The player is unable to use thrown weapons or the middle finger, as the covered windows blocks the spots.
  • Despite the hood is almost under the front windshield barrier, it can be opened normally, passing through it.
  • Despite the fact that it is marked as an LSPD vehicle, it can appear anywhere in the entire state when the player has a three star wanted level.
  • For unknown reasons, the side glass armor on the Enhanced version leaves a gap much larger than the original version. This was possibly made for an easier side-Drive-By or for a better first-person view, as the armor plating reduces the player's field of vision.
  • Other vehicles, such the Duke O'Death and the armored Kuruma, emulates the armor concept from the Transporter, though the vehicle itself is more protective than the others, at the cost of being slower than these aforementioned vehicles.
