Keep the Peace is an in-depth law enforcement strategy game under development for the PC. You'll take the role of Police Chief, responsible for the safety and security of your town, city, or region. As a vast, open-ended strategy game, Keep the Peace is about making difficult decisions with limited resources. In Keep the Peace you will:

Build Your Force

  • Hire the officers that are right for your department, based on dozens of skills and characteristics
  • Customize vehicles, tools, and weapons, to equip your officers appropriately for the tasks you'll be throwing their way
  • Train and promote your officers, and keep them healthy and happy

Deploy Your Officers

  • Assign your units to patrols and prioritize their time between preventing crime, reacting to crime, and traffic enforcement
  • Dispatch your units to the scene of dangerous emergencies -- break-ins, bank robberies, vehicle pursuits, shootings, natural disasters, car accidents, and much more, each with virtually infinite possible variations. You decide which incidents get which resources first.

Choose Your Tactics

  • No need to micromanage your officers, but you can decide the approach they should take for complex incidents: Should they negotiate with a hostage taker, or break down the door? Will you allow a growing protest to proceed unimpeded, or will you assign units to stand in the way?
  • Every situation is different, and every approach has its pros and cons based on your resources, your objectives, your opposition, the terrain, the weather, and many other factors

Bring Offenders to Justice

  • You can't catch every criminal at the scene. When perpetrators escape, send your detectives to track them down; they'll interview witnesses, analyze forensics, conduct surveillance, and even go on dangerous undercover missions
  • Decide when to execute risky search and arrest warrants and make difficult decisions about when to make an arrest, when to collect more evidence, and when to drop a case altogether
  • Suspects will get convicted, or walk free, based on your choices

Experiment with Various Strategies

  • Set policies (e.g. regarding the use of force and rules of engagement), implement programs (e.g. neighborhood watch initiatives), expand your capabilities (e.g. with a crime lab, new training facilities, or new technologies)
  • Target crime hotspots with detailed data about past crimes, and launch stings and crackdowns in high-crime areas
  • Create whatever style of police force you desire

Deal with Long-Term Consequences & Challenges

  • The outcome of every incident and investigation matters, and can affect crime in your city, along with your relationship with the government and your community
  • Choose your tactics wisely. Ruthlessness and excessive force may get the job done, but could also erode community trust, and lead to complaints, inquiries, and expensive lawsuits regarding the conduct of your officers.
  • Deal with long-term crises: a serial killer could terrorize your streets for months or years; a new gang could come to town; a new mayor could withhold key resources and make your life difficult

The game at present is a concept with a very small amount of back end work coding.
