The game currently has 4 seasons: the player begins the game as rookie police officer in the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace Grimsborough]] Police Department, partnered with a detective named Jones to solve all sorts of gruesome murders in the city. Along the way, you and Jones have to contend with various quirky, shady, and outright bizarre characters, including the bumbling beat cop Ramirez, the prostitute Ginger, the mob boss Tony Marconi, and the business mogul Alden Greene. After 56 Cases, the setting then moves on to Pacific Bay, where the player works with two different partners -- Detective Frank Knight and Officer Amy Young -- to assist the Pacific Bay Police Department in managing the rising crime rate in the city. 59 cases later, the player is invited by Jack Archer to join The Bureau, an International Law Enforcement agency that deals with various crimes from all over the world.
