After he and Rita escaped the Police precinct, some surviving police officers returned to the building around the 28th. In their hopes of repairing the damage to the building and re-using it to protect civilians, the Unicorn Medal was moved from the safe, to the first floor S.T.A.R.S. room. By the evening of the 29th the only police still alive were an infected Marvin Branagh, an insane Brian Irons, rookie Leon S. Kennedy and Elliot Edward. Leon was the only one to leave the premises.
Leon placed this medal back onto the statue to claim the Spade Key.
