The Empire City Police Department, or just ECPD (called the Empire Police Department (EPD) on the police stations), is the police force of Empire City in inFamous. The remaining members of the police department are relatively un-organized and scattered around the city in small groups, generally found near the remaining police stations. Depending on his Karma, the police may help or hinder Cole as he searches the city for the Ray Sphere.
Scattered all around the City, the Empire City Police have mostly disappeared, many are in hiding or dead due to the blast or at the hands of the gangs that took over the city. They can be found in missions triggered by Warden Harms as well as patroling the streets. Cole can find out-numbered uniformed officers in shootouts all over the city; he will also encounter more policemen patrolling the Empire City streets if he chooses to protect the police stations.
The various gangs of Empire City are constantly trying to eliminate the remaining police, evident with many shootouts occurring, some in missions, some outside of them.
The Police provide security for some buildings, like the Hospital, most operating police stations, parks, and the Prison. Also, regardless of his Karma, the officers of the Warren will fight alongside Cole during the Prison battle.
The police set up a temporary command area out of the prison, as the Warden is the commander of the remnants of the ECP and a very large force is present for the Prison battle against the Dust Men.
In the DC comics storyline, Cole's relationship with the police seems to have improved, to the point that when Cole is captured by Moya Zeke, Warden Harms, and the police lead a rescue effort to save him. The Police also assist Cole in taking down Moya's men and fought alongside him as he faced David Warner.
The standard policeman would wear a normal policeman uniforms, with various variants. Some would wear bullet-proof vests, some would wear bandages and other headware, and others didn't. Their utility belt consisted of the standard police equipment: handcuffs, pepperspray, a holster for their pistol, and a radio (although it's likely not functional, due to the fact that their radio tower was destroyed). They used pistols based off of Glock 7s. The S.W.A.T. Team members wore the standard S.W.A.T. equipment: riot helmet, full body riot armor, and a radio attached to their shoulders'. The S.W.A.T. team used rifles based off of the M16A1 assualt rifle.
The NMPD was in a similar position as the Empire City Police Department in Empire City. The NMPD was protecting New Marais from the Corrupted, but they were quickly overrun and the Militia stepped in to fight the Corrupted. After the Militia caged up a majority of the cops, it seemed from then on groups of 3 police officers patrolled the streets of New Marais.
After Cole arrived and took out most of the Militia, more and more police enforcement began patrolling the streets, aiding the people of New Marais and the Rebels to the point that the police are seen patrolling New Marias more then the Milita.The NMPD (and Rebels) were in another situation in Flood Town when Cole arrived as both the Corrupted (briefly) and Ice Gang were killing innocent civilians. With Cole's aid, The Police and Rebels drove the Corrupted and Ice Gang to a more manageable level and also later into Gas Works.
In Cole's final encounter with the Beast, several police officers were seen trying to take down the devastating monster. In the final cutscene, several officers are seen helping Zeke carry the lifeless body of Cole to his funeral. Later, three police officers are seen attending Cole's funeral. Thanks to Cole's help the NMPD finally became the sole law enforcement of New Marias and looked to Cole as a shining example of a hero.
The New Marais policemen wear their standard uniform, and had the same standard equipment that the ECPD had on their utility belts. They use pistols based off of the Desert Eagle, and also managed to gather RPGs for some officers, most likely taken from the Militia. They also occasionally use grenades.
- There are no female police officers in either Empire City or New Marias.
- If Cole chooses to help The Beast in New Marias, the police can be seen working with the Militia to stop him.
