The Police Maverick is still designed in the same way the normal Mavericks were in GTA IV, whereas other Mavericks in GTA V are a slightly different design. The Maverick has 4 rotor blades which are black with a yellow tip on the end. The Mavericks paint job is black and white with an LSPD badge on the side.
The Police Maverick is equipped with a spotlight and a camera. It is unknown if it can use its spotlight like it could in GTA: San Andreas, but its camera can be used. It is not yet known if the camera can be used in Single Player, but it can be used in Multiplayer.
In Multiplayer, the camera is used during police chases. If a player is in their apartment during a police chase, they can tune into their TV to watch it live.
