I stayed, because I failed to convince my beloved to leave, and i couldn't leave him/her here alone. We didn't know how dire the situation would become. One day, when i was coming home from a walk with my dog, I heard the first alarm sirens. I ran as fast as I could, but it was already too late. My flat was in flames. I couldn't find my beloved, or his/her body.||”|
–Police Officer's description
The Police Officer is one of the choices of occupation when defining your own civilian. This feature was added in the 1.3 update for This War of Mine. The Police Officer is said to be familiar with guns.
The Police Officer trait, familiar with guns, allows the character to aim more quickly, causing the targeting reticule to turn orange faster. The character has 12 inventory slots and seems to run slightly faster than other characters, although not as fast as Pavle. Like Roman, the Police Officer is a better guard than others and uses less ammunition when set as a guard during the night. The Police Officer's high combat ability does not appear to apply to melee weapons as strongly as it does to guns. However, he and Roman are the only character that can stealth kill with his bare hands. They can also use any melee weapon to perform a one-hit back-stab kill against unaware opponents.
The Police Officer possesses a moderate sensitivity to crimes committed. The character has the same mood change rate as Anton, Arica and Marin. Killing soldiers will cause the Police Officer to become sad. This is similar to Roman becoming sad after killing the soldiers at the military outpost.
