"No one requests to come down here unless they're looking for a reputation."
―Det. Lt. Harrigan (from Predator 2)

Alvarado Precinct was a Los Angeles Police Department precinct in Los Angeles, falling under the jurisdiction of Metro Command division.[1] Detective Lieutenant Mike Harrigan's team was based at Alavarado in 1997.


Alvarado was known to be one of the worst precincts in the city, located in one of the most crime-ridden areas.[1] Its exterior was dominated by the large concrete pylons designed to prevent the building from being targeted by car bombings, installed after a truck bombing at L.A. Central killed over a hundred people.[2] Inside, it was overcrowded, understaffed and ravaged by excessive heat thanks to the building's inadequate (and largely faulty) air conditioning system.
