About This Quiz

The world we live in changed, but criminals did not. Even now they prey upon the weak, the sick, the unwary and the helpless. They lie, they steal, they even kill in order to get what they want. But not on YOUR watch. You're the thin blue line that keeps the seething tide of chaos from bleeding over into the fragile world we live in. You're out there every night, tracking down perps, securing crime scenes and doing the legwork you need to keep us all safe from mankind's darkest impulses. It's a dirty, dangerous job, and for the pittance you're paid you might end up giving up everything you've got- your very life- to a city that doesn't even know your name. But you know what? You wouldn't have it any other way.


.....If you take our quiz, that is. I mean, that's the way you see yourself, of course, but what kind of cop would you REALLY be? We've put together a series of questions and scenarios designed to wrest your police identity from the skeins of fate and emblazon it onto your computer screen, a badge of honor to show your friends and family so they know hey, you mean business! And the criminal underworld? They better be ready....because you're coming for them.
