What’s hiding in your back seat?

Before and after each shift, be sure to thoroughly check the back seat of the squad you’re assigned. You ask enough cops and you’re sure to find some who have unexpectedly surfaced everything from drugs to weapons hidden in the back of their squads.

Even after multiple searches, some suspects have an uncanny ability to hide things they don’t want you to know about. Take a minute to make sure none of those things end up available to the next suspect who you transport.
