Trivia

Cameos

Sonny Bonds, the protagonist of the original Police Quest series, appears in this game as one of the selectable officers you can assign to your SWAT squad.

As in Police Quest: Open Season, game designer Daryl Gates, the former chief of police of the Los Angeles Police Department, will show up from time to time to give you some helpful in-game hints.

Coincidence?

One of the key characters in the game is Mayor Preston, the corrupt, arrogant and pompous mayor of Los Angeles, where the game takes place. The designer of the game, Chief Daryl F. Gates, was forced to leave his post of LAPD chief after rows and clashes with Tom Bradley, the real-life mayor of Los Angeles at the time of the infamous LA riots of 1992. It is not known why, however certain posters to this site have believed that Gates' rows with Bradley inspired the Mayor Preston character, and still others believe it's just a coincidence.
