Dive into a deep story of corruption, crime and intrigue. Take the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, and come face to face with the ugly underbelly of Freeburg, a city spiraling the drain. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken ... or worse?

Manage your staff, respond to emergencies, and investigate crimes in a city on the brink of chaos. The mafia underworld maneuvers behind the scenes, sinking their claws ever deeper into the city, even as the mayor is ready to exploit every situation to his political advantage.

Choose your approach to each situation as it unfolds. Sometimes you’ll be responding to a developing crisis at a crime scene, or negotiating with Freeburg’s crime bosses. Sometimes you’ll find yourself dodging questions in the press room, or even the occasional cross-examination in the witness box. Can you keep this pressure cooker from exploding, at least for long enough to stash away a nice retirement nest egg?
  • Your mission is clear: make $500,000 in 180 days, before Jack Boyd reaches retirement. How? That’s up to you!
  • Decisions, decisions! This Is the Police is all about a dark story and how you react to it. Whatever you decide, your choices will influence the game – and the fate of Jack Boyd.
  • The Good, the Bad, and... the Ugly? The Chief of Freeburg's Police Department deals with all kind of people. It is up to you to find the bad guys, and decide how to deal with them.
  • Carry out your duties. As head of Freeburg PD, Jack deals with all sorts of challenges every day: responding to emergencies, managing his officers, defending the department against City Hall and a corrupt mayor, and much more.
  • Solve Investigations and gather evidence against the criminal gangs of Freeburg.
  • Deal with the competing powers of the city. Everyone offers you favors, and each one comes at a price.
  • Rich and fully voiced story: Jack Boyd is portrayed by Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem.

  1. Much more than it seems
    by Koka Kliora, USA - Jun 7th 2019

    A smart, engaging game. I liked the premise, but the plot and subtext are fascinating. It really draws you in. It's really complex, and there are a lot of paths you can take. More than just managing the police force, you have to keep multiple, competing forces happy while your personal life falls apart. Well-conceived and developed.

  2. Not what i hoped it would be
    by Miltiadis Apostolidis, Greece - Nov 24th 2017

    Although the premise of the game seems quite interesting at first( running a police department while dealing with police corruption) unfortunately it fails to live up to its promise and has very limited replaybility after you finish it.

  3. Great entertaining game
    by Viktor Nyitray, Czech Republic - Sep 11th 2016

    This game is a first I have come to known of this genre. While it provides a lot of fun, there are also some dull parts, but I guess that "working" as a cop isn't only about excitement. The game puts you in front of range of ethical dilemmas that can mean the difference between the death and survival of your staff and civilians. The game puts you in between fighting for good and safety of The city and your own angst against the power-crazed mayor. Are you going to carry out the mob's and city hall's request to fill your pockets for retirement, or are you going to help the citizens of Freeburg to live peaceful and safe lives? The choice is yours!
