The San Fierro Police Department (SFPD) is the law enforcement agency in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, servicing the city of San Fierro, and is a branch of the police agency servicing the entire state of San Andreas, the San Andreas Police Department.
The San Fierro Police Department is modeled after the San Francisco Police Department; while similar in appearance to Los Santos Police Department officers, SFPD officers are distinguishable by their black undershirt, a seven-point star-shaped badge, a second shield shaped arm badge (similar to that found on rural officers), and a mustache. The officers also shout encouraging, nurturing words like "The police are your friends, please stop!", "I'm actually a social worker in this uniform!", or "Wrestle me, honey!" to those they pursue, although they use the same deadly force as any other police department throughout San Andreas.
The major mode of transportation used by SFPD officers is the Police Car, which, despite both being based on the Premier, enjoys superior handling compared to that of the cruiser used by the Los Santos Police Department.
