Police Precinct is a cooperative game where the players take on the roles as police officers, lieutenants and detectives with different areas of expertise. The players must work together to solve a murder (which happened just before the game started), while at the same time deal with the increasing number of street criminals, as well as various emergencies that may occur around the precinct. To complicate matters, one of the players is playing a corrupt cop, bribed by the criminal underworld to work against the other players.
The players controlling the good cops win the game together as a group, if they manage to convict the murderer (fill out all card slots on the Murder Investigation Board) and track down the murderer before any of the fail conditions below are met.
The good cops lose (and the corrupt cop wins) the game if the city crime reaches to the highest level. City crime level increases when police fails to successfully handle emergencies in time, if all the street criminals emerge at the bad 'hoods or if the stack of Event Cards is depleted.
Will the good cops be able to solve the murder case in time, or will the city fall into criminal decay while the corrupt cop undermines the work of the law enforcement? It is up to you, the players, to decide...

We need your help!
We are excited about Police Precinct but we need your help to raise money to give this game the proper treatment it needs. We have contacted George Patsouras (Flashpoint) to do the art for the cover and components. Our goal is to launch the finished product at Essen 2012 so folks can meet the designer, Ole Steiness, and learn the game from the Chief of Police Precinct himself!
Thank you for watching the videos, and thank you for your support!

to do the art for Police Precinct! We are very excited to be using George, as we love his work on Flashpoint and Agents of Smersh. If you have not checked it out yet, please look at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1545517208/agents-of-smersh-a-spy-storytelling-board-game as it is a fantastic looking game by Jason Maxwell.
George has finished a few of the Police Officers!
