Crime Desk: Patrol (1/3)

Starting out as an LAPD officer means following in the footsteps of so many lawmen before you - literally. Walking the beat and cruising your precinct's area as an officer on patrol is both how you pay your dues in the police department as well as a time-honored means of honing your skills and intuition to protect and serve. Before you can move up from a uniformed policeman to the suited attire of a crime desk detective working cases, you will have to prove your worth to the higher-ups on the force with some stellar policework on patrol.

As Cole Phelps, working alongside your partner Officer Ralph Dunn, you'll soon find that a day on patrol in 1947 Los Angeles is anything but routine. Be prepared for anything, and ready to spring into action when those calls come in.

Two of the crimes you'll face while working in uniform include a violent incident of armed robbery and a gunshot victim homicide.
