The 2011 one was better.
" In agreement with the review beneath mine, there's too much police in LEGO City these days. I've resorted primarily to the Friends theme for buildings, because all LEGO City is is police/fire stations, banks, and slummy hideouts, with the rare occasion of airports and train stations. 2011 Bank & Money Transfer was so much better. Slightly smaller building, but the set overall had more playability, and came with an armored truck.
In all, this set is only good for the parts. The bank can be made something else easily, Police helicopter can be modified to be a news chopper, etc.
This would be fun for kids, especially ones just getting into LEGO sets, but overall as a fan since 2007, this is just disappointing. "

I prefer the 2011 one
" So, as of recent years LEGO has been rolling out police sets just about every year as a reboot to the one prior. I got the 2011 police boat for Christmas in 2012 (which I still have and love). The only reason I wanted this one was to build it the way the instructions do, but modify it to make it into a military boat and not use the stickers at all.
Even without the stickers and as a full build, the Patrol boat is a disappointment. It's smaller than the 2011 one by ten or so studs, has just about the same features, and just like the 2011 one: it's very empty on the lower level.
There's the jail cell, then a small area where a ladder leads to which brings you to where the minifigures drive the boat. Beneath the control area, there's absolutely nothing, but a small window where the cops can taunt the criminals they just arrested. Not even a little rest area for the cops in case they're embarking on a long journey, or a communication array with radars and computers galore.
The red dinghy is what saves the set, really, because it at least is packed with little details. Nonetheless, this set is strictly not worth $50. I understand a lot of that comes from the Patrol Boat's base, but that does not change my opinion on it.
I'm sorry, LEGO, but this is one disappointing set. "
I would recommend this to a friend!

Great set, but...
" I love this set all of the way. My main reason for getting this set was for the satellite tower. However...
When building the truck, I noticed I was given two of the right-side red car doors instead of one for either side, so on the left side of the truck, the door is on backwards. I assume I will have a spare of the correct piece somewhere, if not, I plan to contact LEGO about arranging receiving a replacement. "
