GM's Maps #25: Modern Police Station

Watermarked PDF

Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs, especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range, we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.

Modern Police Station

The police are a fact of life in most modern societies, it is their role to enforce the laws of the nation state to which they belong. Policing differs from country to country and from historical period to historical period. British police, for example, are typically not armed with firearms, carrying instead racking batons and CS gas sprays or in some instances tazers. In other nations, the police often carry firearms of various types. One universal constant, however, is that they all need stations from which to operate. A base of operations where they write reports, detain and question suspects and conduct investigations.

The police station presented here is a medium to large city station with detention facilities, hard and soft interview rooms, civilian administration offices, and facilities for both uniformed patrol officers and plain clothes detectives.

The Police Station, although based on modern American examples can also be used in near future or SF games as well as post apocalyptic settings and set in most countries around the world.

The building may provide a base of operations for characters who are police detectives or post apocalyptic survivors who have turned it into their hideout. Alternatively, the PCs may have to break out of or even into the building for some reason. Perhaps some strange, supernatural creature now haunts the building or an unstoppable killer of mysterious origins is stalking it.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
