===Characters:===

Cole Phelps
Cole Phelps is an LAPD detective thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. He's also a badass.

Rusty Galloway
Finbar "Rusty" Galloway is a homicide detective in the Los Angeles Police Department. He is Phelps' partner after Phelps moves up to Homicide and will help him to solve the murder cases in the city of Los Angeles. Thanks to his wide experience as Detective, Rusty treats Phelps with arrogance, since he is new to the LAPD and Rusty resents him for his swift promotion to the homicide department.

Stefan Bekowsky
The young, Jocular Traffic desk detective, Stefan Bekowsky, is highly regarded around the department for his sharp mind, reliability and dedication. Bekowsky proves to be a loyal friend and partner to Phelps as they pursue a string of intriguing cases.

Coroner Carruthers
A key contact at the morgue providing often crucial information for solving a case.

Elsa Lichtmann
She is a German-born Jazz singer working at the The Blue Room.

===Crime Desks===

Throughout L.A. Noire you will progress through different desks, which will have you walking the beat as a traffic cop all the way to tackling Homicide cases as a seasoned Detective. R* as discussed two thus far.

Patrol:
Starting out as an LAPD officer means following in the footsteps of so many lawmen before you – literally. Walking the beat and cruising your precinct’s area as an officer on patrol is both how you pay your dues in the police department as well as a time-honored means of honing your skills and intuition to protect and serve.

Traffic:
Contrary to what some might think, detectives working the traffic desk don't spend much time sorting out parking tickets and moving violations. The Traffic crime desk detective unit investigates hit-and-run cases, vehicular manslaughter and murder cases, and collision reports involving serious injuries or fatalities where a crime may be involved.

Vice:
The Vice Department is a section of the LAPD concerned with offenses involving prostitution, drugs, lewdness, lasciviousness and obscenity.

Arson:
The Arson Department is a section of the LAPD concerned with crimes like maliciously, voluntarily, and willfully setting fire into buildings, forest areas or other property of another or of burning one's own property for an improper purpose, as to collect insurance.

Homicide:
As Detective Cole Phelps, you'll rise through the ranks of the LAPD, along the way facing cases across a range of department crime desks. One of the most brutal and harrowing will of course be that of Homicide.

I got a question...

Where the fu*k is all the media for this game?? I mean, aside from a few short trailers I have yet to see any substantial gameplay... I got all the faith in Rockstar but... This ain't lookin like a 100% buy for me yet.

typical rockstar, they hold back and before release you get oodles of gameplay videos, even though this was developed by a different team its published by RS, and that's how they do their sh*t.
