An Interactive Story

Can you survive a twelve hour shift as a brand new rookie cop in the Hall Street Precinct? Your day will start quietly enough as you gather with the other cops for the 6 am briefing. After you meet your new partner and are assigned to the apparently simple case of robbery at the grade school things rapidly go from bad to worse. Even the Police chief has been kidnapped.
