The above list gives you an idea of the requirements to unlock these police vehicles. Most of these require you to complete a quest of some sort from the previous DLCs, which may be time-consuming for new players. However, the Unmarked Cruiser looks like the best option as it's the cheapest and has a pretty straightforward unlock criteria. You simply need to survive against a 3-star Wanted Level or above for five minutes in GTA Online to get access to this car, after which you can add it to your collection permanently for $3,950,000.

Once you own a police vehicle that supports Dispatch Work, call the Mechanic on your phone to get it delivered to your location or get it from your garage. Until the vehicle arrives, make sure that you aren't currently assigned as the CEO of an Organization or President of a Motorcycle Club; if you are, simply retire from these roles via the interaction menu as shown in the above picture.

Now, get in the driver seat of the police car and press the button prompted on your screen to activate Dispatch Work. You'll then get commands from Vincent about your new police dispatch mission and completing one gives you $25,000. Interestingly, you can leave the cop vehicle and travel to the objective in any vehicle of your choice. For instance, fly the Sparrow attack helicopter to the location and take out the criminals with the rockets in seconds.
