All GTA 5 Police Station Locations
Much of your Grand Theft Auto 5 playtime is dedicated to avoiding the Los Santos police force. To escape and avoid them effectively, you need an extensive knowledge of the world map and know where you might expect to see the cops. But where are the police stations in GTA 5?
There are 11 police stations in the dangerous city of Los Santos. This guide will cover the locations of all 11, as well as give brief descriptions of what they look like.
Each police station serves two purposes: house both police officers and vehicles and act as a respawn point for you whenever you are busted. If you are busted, you will respawn at the nearest police department and lose some money.
Where to Find the Police Stations in GTA V
Every one of these buildings can be found in single-player and GTA Online. Many of these stations also act as the initial spawns for online heists. A full map of the police station locations is below.
