A few convicts will show up when first entering the area, and will give a warning to back away before they resort to more hostile measures. Getting any closer at this point will cause them to become hostile towards the Courier. Outside the patrol station, a Jackal gang leader accompanied by a Jackal gang member can be found. Also, a few feral ghouls might show up in the area.
In front of the building are a few run-down police cars, one of which contains a skeleton and two suitcases containing varying amounts of pre-War money. The entrance, with "FUCK YOU" spray painted on it is to the right side of the building. Also written on the north wall is "I wish I was at the Sierra Madre".
The inside is inhabited by two other Jackal gang members and a handful of giant mantis nymphs. Upon entering the station a room with a few filing cabinets, a couple of desks, and a broken terminal will be found. Two Jackal gang members will also be in the room. The door to the left leads to a hallway with two water fountains (+5 Rads) and two bathroom doors; the first of which is locked (Very Easy). The first bathroom contains a first aid box with random contents; the first aid box in the other bathroom is empty. At the end of the hallway is a jail cell room with a dead prospector and several giant mantis nymphs.
- Guns and Bullets - In the first room, on the desk to the left of two desks facing one another.
- Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap - lying next to the dead prospector in the jail cell.
- This area's containers do not reset their inventories (aside from the darker colored filing cabinets), making this location mostly safe for a makeshift player character home.
- A giant mantis nymph spawns in one of the bathrooms. Due to their small size and relative weakness, if they stand near the door, opening it will trap, and potentially crush, the mantis between the door and wall.
The Nevada Highway Patrol Station appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
