Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Guard Station.

Guard Stations are a workplace for Soldiers, which reduce crime and provide a deterrent for Rebels and Rebellious minded citizens.


Normal Training: "Soldiers gain experience at normal rates."
Special Ops Training: "Soldiers gain experience faster, but their job quality drops by 15%. Soldiers with maximum experience will fare even better in battle." (-8 Job Quality)


Surrounding building may cast off trash, but trash receptacles don't seem to appear.

There are 3 worksites that soldiers may be seen in the Station; Tower, Pillbox and front post.

Can be placed 180 derees of rotation for better egress of soldiers; the infobox image rotation was for aesthetics.

In-Game Text


"How is it possible, that these so called rebels doubt our great leader's teachings?! Don't wait for the answer, just place some Guard Stations. They will dampen any dissent and soothe the demanding militarist faction."


"Stationed Soldiers will protect your society diligently."


Place wherever crime may become an issue while keeping the militarist respect at an acceptable level and balancing any Liberty issues.

For a better crime fighting building, see Police Station (Tropico 3), which is more effective and less Oppressive.
