Raccoon City Police Department is a file that can be found in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.
The city police department building was originally an art museum and is located in the center of the city. Despite its relatively small size, the Raccoon City Police Department is renowned for its squad of elite officers known as S.T.A.R.S..
After the "Arklay Mansion Incident", Chris Redfield and the few S.T.A.R.S. members who managed to survive began a thorough investigation to try to get to the bottom of what had happened. However, their investigation was hampered by police chief Brian Irons.
Chief Irons, facing growing suspicion that he had dubious ties to the Umbrella Corporation, did his best to obscure the results of the investigation. Later, Chris decided to conduct his own investigation into Umbrella and traveled to Europe—to the main branch of the Umbrella Corporation.
Raccoon City had lost all of its municipal functions and was now overrun with zombies.
City police worked furiously to restore order. However, faced with unimaginably abnormal circumstances, their efforts proved ineffective and nearly all of them were killed.
That day was rookie Leon S. Kennedy's first day on the job. Because of oversleeping and massive traffic delays, he didn't make it into the city until after sunset. He then found himself firmly planted into the middle of the chaos.
He meets Claire Redfield who came to Raccoon City to find her brother, also a member of the Raccoon City police force. The two of them head towards their shared destination, the Raccoon City Police Department.
