    Alright, first go all the way up the the highway right above china town and at the end of the highway it splits off into 2 roads, go to where they split and look for a concrete wall that is floating. walk (or drive) under it and take a right. stay against the fence until your out in the open area. go straight until you are in front of this tyranny that is labeled the Los Angeles river.dont go in it yet. stay just out of it and drive all the way down to your right, parallel with the river until it appears on your map, then you can drive it in and go all the way down into the huge open areas.

    Escape S.W.A.T

    Go towards the ocean and drive by it until you see a long pier with an amusement park at the end. It will be blocked off so get out of your car and jump over the side barrier not the tall cement barrier. The SWAT will not be able to get in there but they can shoot you through the road. You can shoot and kill them through the road but it is hard to do.

    Stakeout gone bad

    When your are about to start the mission hold the A button and when the mission starts go a little distance and get out of your car. Then shoot at the guy that is shooting at you and his car will kind of spin. Then after you've killed the guy that was shooting at you, shoot the tires on the car, then shoot the car until it blows up. Then get another car that's going in the lane, then drive to spot you started from.

    Surrenders

    During gameplay

    When someone raises their hands to show they have surrendered, make sure they have dropped their weapon if they had one, because it can be a trick. They'll shoot at you when you get close to them.

    More Good Cop

    If you good/bad cop status gets to low you can bring it back up to good cop again. If you repeat the stealth missions but only use X for a stun attach you will gain good cop status this can also put you badge number up aswell. (for a quick and easy way do the first stealth mission on the game then quit just after the auto save but before the shooting part so you don't lose what you have just gained)

    How to Beat the Last Boss On Good Cop

    When you fight Kim on the last level when you are a good cop the way to beat him easier is to run around and find the metal poles on the ground and throw the first 2 at him then pick up the third and fight with it. To fight him easier mainly hold down back when you are throwing the punches and kicks so you will immediately block when he throws his combos at you. A good combo to pull on him when you have him on slo mo is A Y A that will take down his life pretty low. That is an easy way to beat the last boss.
