TOP TEN MOST WANTED: Click the link for the list of the most wanted criminals in Seattle <<Wanted>>
Meet The Staff
Commissioner Wesley Reid: .
Deputy Commissioner Leonard Spectre:
Chief of the Out-lands Joseph Richardson: Richardson is the Sheriff of the entire outer regions of the city and he is in command of remaining parts of the county’s that are not under the protection of the Seattle Metropolitan Division. Sheriff Richardson or Chief Richardson maintains law and order in a region that see’s all sorts of criminal activity daily. He is the only law in the wastes, warrens and outer suburbs he has been tasked with the duty of keeping track of any enemy transports, bringing down smugglers, dealing with raider tribes and as well keeping the piece with the people. This rugged Sheriff keeps a very close watch on his region and after his budget was increased prior to the war, he has employed hundreds of new men and equipment to help him keep law and order. Sheriff Richardson also oversees the King County Prison that he has stripped down to bare essentials and has turned it into a outdoor tent prison, while keeping the hardened convicts within the walls of the main prison. The People of the outer regions and counties love their Sheriff and haven’t felt safer knowing he is in command.
Chief of Detectives Benjamin Mathews: Promoted to the Chief of Detectives after Gordon was elected to be the cities Commissioner, Mathews has proven that he is a no none sense officer and able to the stress that comes with command; seeing that he successfully headed the Joint Task Force and closed many high profile cases including the infamous Psycho Killer Murders and shutting down multiple human trafficking rings. Mathews once known as the most corrupt of the SPD has shed his old skin and proven that he is truly an honourable officer and the allegations against him were unfounded. He is now in command of the entire detectives bureau and all the captains that oversee each division, he might have dodged the headache from the Joint Task Force but now he has an even bigger headache being in command of every single detective in the Greater Seattle Metropolis, and will have his hands full making sure his captains closer stays positive.
Chief of the Harbour Argyle McDowell: Argyle has recently been placed in charge of the Harbour Division of the Seattle Police Department. Though not directly connected to the SPD the Harbour Police have taken a huge hit as of recent do to the war and have been struggling to maintain control over the shipping lanes. Argyle a life long sailor and law enforcement officer has been tasked with the responsibility of regaining control over the chaos that is currently the Seattle Harbour and to restore the shipping trade so Seattle can return to normal after the war. Argyle has already begun to clean up the harbour and has brought in a private naval security firm to restore order to the lawless harbour and bay.
Chief of Public Relations Reginald Milhaus:
Chief of Homicide Donald Mathews: Do to Seattle’s extreme murder rate SPD created a new division commander directly related to the overwhelming murder rate within Seattle sprawl. He oversees the entire homicide division within all of Seattle and works directly alongside the District Attorneys Office, Medical Examiners Office and oversees the Crime Scene Investigation Division in hopes to allow murder investigations to move smoothly. Seeing that most murder cases go cold after the fist 48 hours, speed and accuracy is of utmost importance to the detectives and captains of the Homicide Division. Chief Mathews will have his hands full as he attempts to curb the ever growing murder rate and bring justice to the many victims and their families. Unlike most of the Chiefs in SPD Mathews is will be scene in uniform and not civilian dress as he needs to fully present himself as a officer of the law and a professional while dealing with multiple agencies he has to juggle on a daily basis including the ever so present and judging media.
Colonel Bernard Beachworth (Robbery and Fraud Division Commander): The Overworked little bulldog that has a serious bite and bark has been promoted to the rank of Colonel and has been given the command of the entire Robbery and Fraud divisions for the entire city of Seattle. Well lets just hope the PR department is on speed dial, cause we all know what happens when Beachworth is allowed anywhere near a camera, though all joking aside Colonel Beachworth is a stalwart detective and commander. He is probably the only officer that can handle the pressures that come with this command position, where most wouldn’t be able to handle the stress of just one division Beachworth is juggling two and still working with the Joint Task Force. So hats off to Colonel Beachworth and hopefully he can wrangle in the tangled mess that is the robbery and fraud units of the Seattle Police Department, though do keep him away from the media; for this tiny ball of stress and fury is not a shining example of cool under pressure, though if it works don’t fix it.
Colonel Thomas Kissinger (Organised Crime Commander): The newest member of SPD is Colonel Kissinger having been recruited directly from the Atlanta Police Department to oversee the entire Organised Crime Division and bring to justice these criminal syndicates that feel they are above the law do to political and corporate influence. Kissinger was recruited by Mayor Krieghoff do to his proven success at cleaning up the Yakuza and Triads within Atlanta, and with the ever growing Asian criminal empires here in Seattle we do need a commander that has no fear of them. Kissinger will be in for a tough rode as he needs to unravel the tangled web of corruption that lies within this division, but if any officer can do it it is this man.
Major Elliot Ness (Fraud Division Supervisor): Newly promoted for the second time in under a month Elliot Ness seems to be on the rise through the ranks and this is well deserved for this career Seattle Police Officer. Ness has been handed the entire Fraud Division to oversee and work directly alongside his long time partner and friend the fiery ball of rage Bernard Beachworth. Seems that SPD understands that they cannot separate these two bulldogs and expect anything good to happen, never mess with a good thing I guess. Ness will have his hands full working inside the Fraud Division seeing that this posting is not as cut and dry as homicide and black and white as C-SWAT. Though if anyone has the chops to handle the high stress of Fraud it’s Elliot Ness, congratulations on a well earned promotion and good luck tackling the disaster that is the Fraud Division.
Bureau Of Captains
Captain Montgomery Hilliard (Robbery Division): Captain Hilliard was hired directly out of the Richmond PD to fill the vacant seat left by Beachworth after his promotion, Hilliard runs the Robbery division within PP One and oversees one of the most stressful units in department history. This man was recruited by Mayor Krieghoff do to his spotless service record and his flawless performance in wrangling in Richmond’s high burglary rate, he might not have been able to prevent the robberies but his case closer rate proved that he has what it takes to tangle with it and make a would be thief think twice about breaking the law.
Captain Harold Reynolds (Arson Unit): Captain Reynolds comes over from the Seattle Metropolis Fire Department where he serves as the Chief Fire Marshal for the entire proverb of Seattle. He replaces the former division captain of the Arson Unit that took his own life, Reynolds is a long standing city fireman and fire marshal and offers his expertise in the science of fire to the Seattle Police. Captain Reynolds will have his hands full in this division do to sheer amount of firebugs that lurk within the shadows of Seattle.
Captain Jerry Stowell (Cold Case Division): The man no-one dares to work with, Stowell is seriously old school, very cranky and has zero tolerance for any twinge in the rules. This man was given Cold Case after the previous Lieutenant retired do to injuries received in the line of duty. Being the most senior in the division Stowell inherited a cluster of a mess, Cold Case is normally where all the other divisions dump their cases when they become too tough or all the leads have gone cold. Stowell has to now try to breath new life into cases some of witch are over 30 years old and attempt to start closing them. Now you would think this is a daunting task but Stowell has already closed 20% of the cases that have been littering up the storage room in the basement. Stowell might be a cranky old man, but he is a dedicated cop and he is not above heading out into the field with his detectives. Though for Stowell he is very serious about his job, he is a no nonsense, no sense of humour and very old school so he does drive his detectives crazy with his strict and stern approach to leadership. According to the high brass they have never seen Cold Case so clean, the detectives so professionally dressed and the entire division running like a well oiled machine. So it seems Stowell has done something good as he has really cracked down and brought order and structure to a very lax division.
Captain William Gunn (Missing Persons Division): Another recruit straight out of Richmond is the fierce bulldog Captain William Gunn, this man was brought in to oversee the division of Missing Persons that is having an ever growing rate of cases that have been going cold do to lake of evidence. Command felt that the division was without a direct commander for long enough and the Mayor reached out to the Confederacy for a seasoned detective that has had proven success in digging up the evidence and bringing the missing home. Do to Seattle being an epicentre of the UCAS on the West Coast, we have a high rate of runaways, kidnappings, trafficking rings and a black market for bodies, body parts and children as well as slaves many people are lured to Seattle with false pretences and end up vanishing. Captain Gunn will be tasked with handling these cases and making sure that justice is served, he will hopefully begin looking into the sudden increase in missing children, teenagers and young adults within Little Asia and Downtown as of late. He will have to balance the stress and time crunch that comes with this time sensitive division, when a case goes cold it normally means someone just died, or worse.
Captain Stanley Rodgers (Magic Division): Rodgers is the head of the magical crimes division and under his command he has already closed more then 90% of the open cases that he inherited from the previous Captain. Rodgers is a no nonsense commander and he rules his division with an iron fist. The Detectives that work under Captain Rodgers understand he does not tolerate insubordination, lazy behaviour, excuses and paperwork. It’s the threat of having to do the Captains paperwork that keeps his detectives busy and always working on a case. Any slacker he see’s gets stuck with all his busy work, as Captain Rodgers prefers to work in the field then be cooped up in his office.
Captain Arthur Crane (Homicide Division): This Captain is one of the scariest bosses to ever work for, Crane is no nonsense and has zero sense of humour. He takes his job very seriously and he believes that any detective under him should as well, as they are the final voice for a murdered victim and their family. Crane employees a three strike policy with his detectives and after the third they are out, he just fires them and seeks a new detective to fill the shoes. Under Cranes rule the Homicide division has cleared more then 90% of the open cases that he inherited from his predecessor. This Captain is another that prefers to be in the field, and will hand off his paperwork to a unfortunate soul that never dares to say no.
Captain Russell Bookman (Major Case Division): Recently promoted to the top of the Major Case Division when his former commanders where arrested for treason against the City of Seattle. Bookman has taken it on himself to rework the entire division and restore a level of honour that is expected within the Seattle Police Department. Bookman has brought in a whole new squad of detectives and has begun to work on the open cases that where considered unsolvable and has begun to close case after case. Bookman is a true hard ass and old school commander, and his detectives understand that Bookman means business and he will not think twice about having someone replaced who is not pulling their own weight as the Major Case Squad is the heart and blood of the Seattle Police Department and Bookman is front and centre.
Captain Frank Quinn (Special Victims Division): Quinn is one mean son of a bitch and his detectives understand that he is all business all the time. He takes his job very seriously and he actually seems to care about the victims and their families and will deal with any detective that makes fun of them. He has also been able to bring down the level of open cases by 60% and he is still working hard to restore honour to the division referred to as the sex police. Quinn is not a man anyone ever dares to cross and he has rounded up his division and cleaned house of all the problem children, though this commander is not known for his political graces and he is very quick to throw profanities and threaten physical harm to suspect and detective alike. What Quinn lacks in social graces, he makes up for in sheer dedication and leadership qualities, this is one Captain that you either love or hate and there is no middle ground.
Captain David Rockford (Cyber Division and C-Swat): Fresh from the Tulsa Police Department Captain Rockford replaces Elliot Ness after his recent promotion, Rockford has proven to be a solid commander and one that is not afraid to get his hands dirty during an engagement. This captain doesn’t just sit behind a desk, he commands from the front lines and engages the criminals head on, Captain Rockford has no fear and this is just what Seattle needed. We welcome Captain Rockford and his hands on approach to dealing with all the cybernetic crazies on the streets these days.
Captain Horatio Schiff (Computer Crimes Division): Recently promoted after solving the cyber attack at the Mayors office Schiff has already been in command of the Computer Crimes Division. Though now he oversees the entire division and is in command of hundreds of the Police Deckers monitoring though out Seattle. They have been given the task to oversee the cities safety and monitor for any cyber terrorism that is floating around the Matrix. Schiff is beloved by his men and if anyone can round up a see of misfits it’s Schiff, and this man has in a few short days already cracked many cases wide open and closed 40% of the open investigations sitting in his inbox. Schiff also works with other divisions assisting in all their computer needs, this means the Computer Crimes Division is very busy all the time and Schiff demands the best from his detectives anything less then a 100% is unacceptable and he has them transferred to a less stressful division.
Captain Sherman Willard (Joint Task Force Division): After Captain Mathews success within this division and recent promotion the job for it’s command was up for grabs and none of this unit wanted the headache and bulls eye that came with accepting the promotion. It was Gordon’s first act as Commissioner that would place Willard in command and needless to say Captain Willard reluctantly accepted the promotion and took command of the division. Knowing that any case that any other division didn’t want would land on his desk and he would be under a microscope to investigate and close, this division has proved itself before and yet they still don’t get any respect from the other officers of SPD and the media destroys this division at any given chance; it’s a wonder that Willard has managed to remain sane so far and not become a ball of fury like Beachworth or Mathews.
Captain (Traffic Division): post is currently filled by Lt Ross Bush
Captain Donald Gray (Vice Division): Captain Gray is another new arrival into the Seattle Police Department, he was offered a position inside the Police Department as a thank you for his actions during the Battle for Seattle and as a life long Private Investigator who better to head the almost defunct Vice Division. This man has taken the burden of dealing with Vice crimes off the shoulders of the already overworked Narcotics and Gangland commanders and now Gray like DiCane has to wrangle in a bunch of wayward detectives that are used to going about business with no commander. Well for the Vice Division those days are over and Captain Gray from Detroit is here to enforce his will and rule over the unruly. Since his arrival he nearly cleaned house, removing any Detective that was to insubordinate and any that failed his surprise drug and alcohol test and started replacing his ranks with those uniformed officers from Patrol, Traffic and Highway as long as they could pass the Detectives exam. Second he enforced a strict zero tolerance policy in his division, and for any detective going undercover they would have to see the departments shrink after for mandatory counselling and detoxification. Captain Gray has been able to clear 30% of the open cases and 15% of the cold cases that have been dumped onto his desk. The troubled Vice Division might be back in it’s freshman stages but with a monarch like Captain Gray in command the Division is destined to return to it’s greatness.
Captain Maxwell Irving (Organised Crime Division): The newest Captain is Captain Irving, his resume claims he has been a law enforcement officer for over 30 years and served as a Captain in the NYPD’s Organised Crime Division. But when anyone actually asks any NYPD officer they can’t seem to recall a Captain Irving ever serving in the PD, seems this man is a bit of a shadow. Well anyway stranger things have occurred, Captain Irving has been handed a division that is under a ton of stress dealing with the various international crime syndicates and terrorist cells that spring up within Seattle on a daily basis. This man if he really does have the experience he claims to have, will have no issues wrangling his Detectives and beginning to crack down on these syndicates and families that rule the underworld. He has just been given the duty of commanding this unit so it’s way to early to crunch the numbers on his ability to lead and close cases. Though Captain Irving has a very unsettling aura about him and even though he is a small man, he seems to be able to keep his detectives in line and has already begun clearing house of the corrupt. So lets give the new Captain a month or so to settle in before judgement is passed.
Captain Hugh O’Malley (Animal Control Division): This is another that has recently been brought into Seattle Police Department from an outside agency, Captain O’Malley claims to be from Boston PD and everyone we have spoke with verifies his resume. This Captain is stepping into a minefield taking on the Animal & Paranormal Control Division, they have to deal with all sorts of crazy critters that are lurking within the shadows of Seattle and they have to regulate all the paranormal critter that are on the attack as of recent. Captain O’Malley has been handed a long forgotten unit that has been allowed to just slip through the cracks. But do to the sudden critter attacks in Seattle the people have been demanding the Police Department do something, they reached out to Boston and wrangled a beast of man to tangle the lazy officers and dangerous beast but this man has the ferocity of a tiger and see’s all. Captain O’Malley has already turned his division around as his men say it’s like working with a dangerous predator and he never relents, Captain O’Malley has already stated he will clean house if he needs to, they need to restore the faith in the police with the people and keep these dangerous paranormal creatures away from the common citizen.
Captain Hershel Grant (Narcotics Division): This is another high stress and very dangerous division, Narcotics is one division that is ever growing and changing as they have had to adapt to chip ware addiction and new strains of drugs hitting the streets daily. Whenever Grant closes down one drug ring three more open up and he is back to the drawing board, this unit relies on undercover work and being able to blend into the shady world in order to gain access to the big time dealers and pushers. When Grant took over as commander of the unit it was do to his former boss committing suicide from the stress of the job. Grant has been able to seal the leaks in his sinking ship and breath new life into the Narcotics division, these men normally work hand in hand with Homicide and Major Case so they see the worst of the city every day. Grant has been able to close 35% of the open cases since he took command, but with the people still demanding a drug free Seattle and pressure being applied from the Senate; Grant has his hands full and he knows he is fighting an uphill battle, just remember kids “Just Say No!”
Captain Don Mallard (Juvenile Crimes Division): Don is a new transfer to the Seattle Police Department, he comes from the war zone of the Newark Police Department and has served in multiple of New Jersey’s roughest cities. This old cop has a heart of gold and loves his job, he is a hard nosed cop and can sniff out trouble anywhere. This man is exactly what Seattle needs to restore the faith in the department and also wrangle in the cities lost children that have taken to the streets and forgoing their education. The Juvenile Division has been without a commanding officer for over a year and their hasn’t been anyone wiling to accept the responsibility of handling that division. Well the former Sargent from Newark has been placed in charge of a bunch of detectives and officers that would rather eat doughnuts and do crossword puzzles than step foot into a school. These officers are in for a rude awaking since Don has been placed in command he has done away with the useless private security forces at the schools and has begun placing armed officers and detectives in the schools and he also restarted the Jump Street program as well. Don is a hard ass that won’t tolerate lazy behaviour or any sign of corruption in his division he can smell a bad apple at twenty paces, he has already started cleaning house and he has only been in command a few days.
Lt. Rusty Rutherford (Homicide): The Bulldog from the Jersey Shore has arrived here in Seattle and with his old school investigation tactics and police work he has breathed new life into the bewildered Homicide Division of PP One. Rutherford is the second in command of the unit and is a hands on supervisor, alongside his long time partner Sgt Howard Seattle has once again been granted another dynamic duo. Once Rusty has been given a case he will not rest till the case is solved and the suspect is in custody, when Lt. Rutherford casts his net he will keep dragging it in until the suspect is caught and any bonus fish as just icing on the cake.
Lt. Raymond McCoy (Patrol Division): McCoy is the new commander of the dreaded patrol division after the death of Captain Barnes. This man is not as ruthless and uncaring as his predecessor, McCoy actually cares about his men and he understands that Patrol is not the safest division in Seattle as being a uniformed officer means they have bullseye’s on there backs and also they are disliked and distrusted by the people do to being known as ticket machines. The Patrol division though has managed under McCoy to clean up a few of the suburban districts that where starting to show an increase in violent crime. He has also increased the number of beat cops throughout the city and in some districts he even has doubled them up to being in squads of four. The new budget that was passed on December 20th 2073 will increase the Patrol Division by 400% and also give McCoy his promotion once it becomes active on January 1st 2074.
Lt. Clark Barnet (Joint Task Force): Barnet is Mathews second in command and he was recently promoted do the creation of this division. Barnett is a by the book cop and Mathews is a fly by the seat of his pants cop so they make the perfect partnership to wrangle in this new division and with almost a century of experience between them this unit shouldn’t have any issues. Though with an entire city under their belts these men have allot to deal with and currently it’s not been fully ironed out by the high brass as to what exactly is classified as a Joint Task Force case or not. So these men get called out consistently when another unit doesn’t want to deal with a troubling case. Barnet will probably turn grey before the end of the new year do to the stress of this new division as it is sink or swim for them and these men are all risking their careers just showing up to work.
Lt. Ross Bush (Vehicle Crimes Division and Highway Patrol): Bush was recently promoted after his commanders death and the work he did during the Battle of Seattle, he has also been given a dual unit to command and this makes him one of the most hated commanders in the Police Department as he also oversee’s Highway Patrol and this is the cities lifeblood so he has become the ticket cop and the people just hate being stopped. Also he has to worry about his men being targets, do to being a uniformed division, like Patrol they are wearing bulls-eye’s and their are plenty of people that would love to murder a servant of the police. Bush is now the supervisor of the Vehicle Crimes Division and has to deal with all the criminal activity caused by the cities riggers an wannabe riggers, so Bush has been very busy since he stepped into his new role. The new budget will increase the Highway Patrol by 300%, this has many people upset but for Bush it means a promotion and more men, vehicles and hopefully a safe return home for his officers.
Sargent Dakota Bertram (Missing Persons Division): Dakota has been tasked with being in command of the Missing Persons Division since senior officer retired at the beginning of December and the acting commander was killed during the Battle for Seattle. Dakota has been handed a division that either solves a case within a few weeks or it goes forever cold, this didn’t sit well with this old school detective and he had a few tricks up his old sleeve that have brought many missing people home or at least allowed them to discover the bodies and hand the case over to Homicide or Major Case. Dakota is a very tough boss as he expects the best from the detectives working under him, his division is a very time sensitive one and seconds can determine life or death. He has proven himself worthy as a hostage negotiator and do to some of his old school long forgotten tactics, he has been able to cause kidnappers to slip up and allow for a speedy recovery. Sadly do to the nature of his division he has only been able to clear 10% of the cases that where sitting on his desk when he was given command. The remaining have been passed down to Cold Case, Dakota hopes to change things with the new year and maintain a minimum of an 80% recovery rate, he knows anything higher is unreasonable even for the best in the business.
Sargent Eric Burns (Gangland Division): Burns is a new transfer from California and he has been placed inside a division that has a very quick turnover rate do to death. he heads the dreaded Gangland Division that all the other cops call the Suicide Squad. For Burns he is up for the challenge and he fears nothing, so this cop from California has taken on the task of wrangling a division full of strung out rejects and bring a resemblance of order back to the chaos that was Gangland. Burns has already cracked down on many of the cities fiercest street gangs and has caused these criminals to loose territory and members to the big house. He walked into a division that was failing under the pressure of too many gangs and not enough cops and has increased the squads, increased the training and education and enforces mandatory weekly drug screenings done on a lottery basis so no Detective or Officer will ever know when they are going to be screened. Under Burns command he has reduced gangland violence by 30% though with the new gangs appearing he has his work cut out for him. The gangs of the city are like cockroaches and they keep breeding more and more. Burns will have his hands full with this division, but if anyone can do it it’s the old cop from California.
Sargent Harrison Rodgers (Counter Terrorism Division): Rodgers well this man is a serious cop, he is a no nonsense man like his brother Captain Stanley Rodgers. Harrison is in charge of a division that has been left forgotten for many a decade and has to instil the seriousness of Counter Terrorism into a bunch of young snot nosed kids that don’t even understand what terrorism is. If his squad room was non smoking I think Harrison would start shooting these young detectives that couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag and wouldn’t know a terrorist if one was staring right at them. Harrison’s division has been tasked with investigating the growing federal threat inside Seattle and working to bring down these agents before they can insert themselves into the cities underworld and vanish. This has turned into a nightmare for Harrison as he has to re-educate his entire division since they are all ignorant to why the city is at war. Harrison has also been placed into the Joint Task Force so this old cop has a serious headache to deal with daily, it will only be a matter of time before Harrison blows his lid and everyone still remember what happened when his brother flipped his lid, this is not something that ever needs to be repeated.
Sargent Doc O’Neil (Harbour and River Division): Doc has been tasked with the impossible an that is to clean up the lawless waters that surround Seattle and their security for many years has gone neglected. He is a new member of the Seattle Police Department coming to us from the battered Belfast Police Department with hopes that his hard nosed attitude can wrangle in a division of officers that would rather play solitaire then actually do their job. Seattle’s waterways as of late have become a serious issue and a haven for criminals and smugglers with no harbour cops patrolling the neglected waterways have fallen into disarray. Doc has recently been placed in command of this division and so it’s to early to tell if he will be up to the job, though his men a physically scared of him so that might come to his advantage in getting the job done. The Harbour division is as well part of the Joint Task Force, adding to Doc’s already heavy plate he will be required to work alongside the freshman division during it’s probational period with his job as well on the line to add to his stress.
Sargent Major Lesley Howard (Homicide): Sgt. Howard is the direct partner of Lt. Rutherford and with his vast experience Howard is one cop that you never want assigned to a murder you committed. Another reject from New Jersey means that he brings old school police tactics to the modern policing of Seattle, so best to stay off Sgt. Howard’s radar and keep your nose clean. If Captain Crane and Lt. Rutherford weren’t reasons enough to not commit murder Sgt. Howard is yet another incentive to live a crime free live. Homicide might have lost the original bulldogs of Beachworth and Ness but they still have the Jersey rejects of Lt. Rutherford and Sgt. Howard and these two are mean as rattlers and the tenacity of a pitbull once they are given a case they lock their jaws and never relent and never yield.
Senior Detective First Grade Rodger Larson (Missing Persons): Larsen has proven to be a great asset to the Missing Persons Division with his canine sensory abilities he has been able to increase the recovery rate and as well the survival rate of the abducted victims.
Sargent Kermit Spalding (Cold Case & Joint Task Force): Spalding has finally made Sargent and not many within SPD are happy about this curmudgeon having any form of command authority. He has been placed back within Cold Case to work alongside his log time friend Captain Stowell, though Spalding is still active within the Joint Task Force and has become Captain Willard’s problem now.
Senior Detective First Grade Warren Procter (Joint Task Force): Procter is a Willard’s partner and has been recruited to the Joint Task Force from Homicide. This man is a seasoned detective that is not afraid to show his skill, he is not afraid of paperwork and won’t mind unloading a few rounds into an unruly suspect before arrest.
Senior Detective First Grade Crystal Paul (Missing Persons): Paul is another one of Bertram’s special wild cards that he brought in specially to help close the missing persons open cases. Paul is a master of finding anything and anyone that doesn’t want to be found. She is like a human bloodhound and once she gets the scent Paul will never back off, between Paul and her partner Larson they have recovered many thought to have been forever lost.
Junior Detective Second Grade Sydney Crane (Major Case): The wife of Captain Crane is just as scary as her husband, but do to department policy the two couldn’t be in the same division. So Bookman was given the headache of dealing with Detective Crane and her go get them attitude. Crane is very new to following department procedures and is not above roughing up a suspect prior to bringing them in, then pounding the stuffing out of them again. She is a Crane and from Texas do I need to say any more people, stay of her way.
<<This is the current known roster for the Seattle Police Department Police Precinct One, more will be revealed as the records become available>>
The above is only for the dreaded Police Precinct One, their are countless more police officers throughout the city, in all divisions and task forces from C-Swat, Uniformed, Highway Patrol, Undercover and more so just cause they are not listed here does not mean they are not a police officer and this is most certainly not all of the officers in Seattle Police Department. The Police are being very slow to release any official release regarding their roster so, I am adding it to the Seattle Police Page here on Shadows of Seattle. This is in no way a hit list, these cops risk their lives each day to keep all of you safe. Also some of these police officers are very dangerous, some are worse then any runner could ever imagine so pick your fights carefully and remember you can’t out run a radio.
