The Sims Freeplay- Profession Careers: Police

Once you build the Police Station you can begin the Police Career:

This is a profession career so its a little different from a normal career as you can actually go to work with 2 of your sims and help them during their work day!

You can either go to work with your sims or send them to work offsite, if you send them to work offsite this means you won’t see them at the police station. But you can go to work with your sim if you select send alone or accompany sim and then they can help sims and earn resources (only two sims can be at the police station at one time, all other sims with this career have to work offsite)

When you send a sim to work at the police station sims will enter with bubbles above their heads, you need to click on this bubble and select one of the tasks that appears, the amount of grey sections there are tells you how many tasks you have to complete before you earn the reward that is pictured in the middle of the bubble:

Once you have built the police station 3 workstations will already be unlocked (Front Desk, Training Center and Surveillance Van) so you can start helping sims by completing actions using these workstations, you will see options similar to the image below when you click on one of the bubbles:

Each of these has to be completed in a different workstation so file police report is at the front desk, receive motivation is in the training center and check police video is in the surveillance van

TIP: if you are unsure which workstation is required it tells you above the action!

Only one sim can use a workstation at one time (new tasks will be added when you unlock new workstations, keep reading for more information)

Each time your sims complete a task (that section will turn from grey to green) a police coin bubble will appear above their head, click this and they will earn police coins and XPs, the experience points are towards levelling up, so they will level up quicker than if you just sent them to work.

Once all the tasks have been completed all the grey sections will now appear green, click on this to receive your reward (the rewards are police coins and resources used to upgrade the different workstations at the police station):

I am not going to go into too much detail about how to complete Profession Careers here, if you are still unsure check out my Guide to Profession Careers for more information on how they work!


HOURS

You can send your sims to work anytime for 8 hours but if you are helping sims they can finish early if they reach the quota, they need to help 25 sims (you need to complete all the tasks for a person to have helped 1 person) during their shift, then they will end their shift early and you earn extra police coins and resources:

If they are working offsite they will just work for 8 hours and they won’t earn any resources as they won’t be helping any sims.


LEVELS

All sims completing this hobby will be able to reach level 6 in this career:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs
1 Cadet S1,165 300
2 Deputy S1,260 480
3 Trooper S1,355 660
4 Corporal S1,450 840
5 Sergeant S1,545 1020
6 Sergeant S1,640 1200

Then only 2 sims, once they reach level 6 can choose to be either Metro Police or Special Agent, only one sim can be metro police and one sim can be special agent, all other sims will stay as level 6 sergeant.

Metro Police– when your sim specialises as Metro Police they can continue to level up and unlock more workstations:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs WORKSTATION UNLOCKED
6 Patrol Sim S1,640 1,200 Squad Car
7 Lieutenant S1,735 1,380 Jail Cells
8 Captain S1,830 1,560 K-9 Unit
9 Division Chief S1,925 1,740 Chiefs Office
10 Police Commissioner S2,020 1,920

Once you unlock the workstation you have to use the resources to build it before you can help sims using these workstations, only the metro police will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above. I will be going into detail about workstations later in this post.

Special Agent– when your sim specialises as a Special Agent they can continue to level up and unlock more workstations:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs WORKSTATION UNLOCKED
6 Investigator S1,640 1,200 Interview Room
7 Detective S1,735 1,380 Sketch Room
8 Super Sleuth S1,830 1,560 Forensics Lab
9 Secret Agent S1,925 1,740 Division 51
10 Sim-In-Black S2,020 1,920

Once you unlock the workstation you have to use the resources to build it before you can help sims using these workstations, only the special agent will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above. I will be going into detail about workstations later in this post.

When your sim specialises they have to fulfil profession badges before they can level up (check the occupations tab to find out what you need to do to complete this):


Each sim can only earn one badge per shift and you need all badges before you will be able to level up in this career 

If you don’t manage to complete a badge in a shift the progress for that badge will reset and you will have to start again on the next shift (for example, if your task is to help 2 important sims and you only help one, in your next shift it will reset so you will have to help 2 important sims in that shift to get the badge)

Each level requires you to complete more badges, you cannot level up until all the badges have been collected.

Who are the important sims I need to help to get a badge?

These are the sims with question marks in the bubbles above their heads:

When you reach level 10 in a profession career you unlock the work outfit in that specialist for a female and male adult sim to wear at any time, you can find these in the wardrobe under outfits:

Left- metro police outfits Right- special agent outfits

Remember:

  • You can only go to work with 2 sims at a time, all other sims in this career will work offsite so you won’t see them during the day
  • Only one sim can use a workstation at one time
  • If you don’t know how Profession Careers work read my guide

Workstations

The workstations require resources to upgrade them so the time an action takes will decrease and the coins and XPs you earn for each action will increase. The resources are shown below:

Some resources are not unlocked yet, build new workstations to unlock them

You can see the resources you have in the second tab of the professions menu under storage (you can access this using the button in the top left hand corner of your screen when you are at the police station)

In the professions menu you can see:

  • Workplace Overview- here you can see the workstations you have currently unlocked, what level you are on and what resources you need to upgrade them
  • Storage- this is where you see your current resources collected and on the right hand side is your police coins, the police coins are used to increase your storage if you need to and trade for resources (which is in the next tab)
  • Resource Exchange- here you can either spin for resources using simoleons or LPs for the mega spin as well as trade police coins for resources

The tables below show the upgrade resources needed, the time each upgrade will take and the time an action takes and the amount of coins and XPs you earn when you complete each action, only one of these will upgrade each time so if the time taken decreases then the amount of coins and XPs you earn will stay the same until you upgrade again and then the amount of coins you earn will increase while the time taken and XPs will stay the same.

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP

If you don’t have the amount of resources you need it will say it costs LPs, when you have the right amount of resources you can build/ upgrade the workstation without LPs (you know you have all the resources you need when there are ticks next to all the resources):  When you upgrade each workstation to level 10 and 20 there will be a visual upgrade to the workstation, those pictures are shown below each of the tables.

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP


Are there items for my home that can increase my sims job level? So far there isn’t anything for the police career

Orange Suitcase? Can’t send your sims to work?

This is because you have already sent them to work once today, if you are VIP level 1 you can send them to work twice in a day (this will cost you 15LPs still if you are VIP)

Wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.

Do I need to be VIP to use the police station?

NO! If you are VIP you can send your sims to work twice a day (VIP level 1), upgrade more than one workstation at a time (VIP level 7) and use the mega spin (VIP level 2) but you do not have to be VIP

The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Profession Careers

There are now three profession careers; Police, Filmmaker and Medical Staff so I thought it would be a good idea to make a post explaining how these profession careers work.

You can find specific information on each profession career by clicking on these links:
Police, Filmmaker & Medical Staff

What is the difference between professions and normal careers?

Professions are still careers but you can go with your sim to the workplace and while they are there they help sims to earn resources, these resources are used to build and upgrade areas inside the workplace called workstations.


Professions Training Quest

Once you have built a profession workplace the Professions Training Quest will begin (there is no time limit to this you just have to complete it before you can send anymore sims to work there- and yes you can complete it at the same time as other quests)

It is more of a tutorial than a quest

NOTE: you will only receive this quest the first time you build a profession workplace so when you reach level 6 in another profession it will not appear again, this quest below shows the police profession but it is the same for all professions.

  • Visit the police station
  • Send a sim to work at the police station (give them a job at the police station the same way you usually give them a job then click on the suitcase to send a sim to work- select accompany sim to go to the station with them)
  • Help a sim at the police station- tap a bubble that appears over a sims head and complete one of the tasks
  • Help again at the police station- complete the second task on the bubble
  • Check workplace overview (found in the profession menu in the top left on your screen while at the police station)
  • Check workplace storage (second tab in the profession menu)
  • Help a sim at the police station
  • Check the work shift quota- this can be found on the work bar:

  • Fulfil special requests- this is a task where the bubble shows a question mark instead of the resource, complete the tasks to find out what resource you will be rewarded
  • Trade resources (third tab in the profession menu)
  • Upgrade a workstation- click on a green arrow at one of the workstations to get the option to upgrade it

  • Complete the remaining work day- either keep helping sims, leave your sim to work or click on the red cross on the work bar and then on complete shift (this will usually cost you LPs

QUEST IS COMPLETE!

Once you complete the quest you can send other sims to work there


How do I help sims?

When you send a sim to work sims will enter with bubbles above their heads, you need to click on this bubble and select one of the tasks that appears, the amount of grey sections there are tells you how many tasks you have to complete before you earn the reward (which is a resource) that is pictured in the middle of the bubble:


Each task has to be completed in a different workstation and only one sim can use a workstation at one time (new tasks will be added when you unlock new workstations)

Each time your sims complete a task (that section will turn from grey to green) a coin bubble will appear above their head, click this and they will earn coins and XPs, the experience points are towards levelling up, so they will level up quicker than if you just sent them to work.

Once all the tasks have been completed all the grey sections will now appear green, click on this to receive your reward.

Sometimes you may see a question mark appear in the bubble instead of a resource, this is a mystery resource, you will find out what it is when you complete the tasks:

these are important sims needed to collect badges

Does the same sim have to complete all the tasks when they help a sim?

No they don’t

Can I send one of the sims away if I don’t want to help them right now?

No, they will stay at the workplace until you help them

What are resources used for?

The resources are used to build and upgrade the different workstations within the workplace.

Build new workstations to unlock new resources

 What are coins used for? 

Coins are used to increase your storage and trade for resources

 

Can I send my sim to work on their own like a normal career? Will they still collect resources?

Yes you can send them to work on their own and they will still level up however they will level up slower than if they help sims and they will not collect any resources.

What is the work shift quota?

The work shift quota shows how many sims you need to help within the shift to finish their shift early and earn bonus resources

What are the workstations?

Police

Rookie:

  • Training Center
  • Front Desk
  • Surveillance Van

Once your sim reaches level 6 you can decide which career to specialise them in: either Metro Police or Special Agent, you will need to have a sim as each to be able to unlock the other workstations

  • Squad Car- level 6 Metro Police
  • Jail Cells- level 7 Metro Police

  • Division 51- level 9 Special Agent

Only the special agent will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above

  • Physical Aid

Once your sim reaches level 6 you can decide which career to specialise them in: either Nurse or Doctor, you will need to have a sim as each to be able to unlock the other workstations

NOTE: you can only have one sim as a nurse and one sim as a doctor

Nurse:

  • Pharmacy- level 6 Nurse
  • Triage- level 7 Nurse
  • Radiology- level 8 Nurse

  • Psychiatrist’s Office- level 7 Doctor
  • Research Laboratory- level 8 Doctor
  • Surgery Room- level 9 Doctor

Only the doctor will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above

 

What do you get for upgrading workstations?

Each time you upgrade a workstation one of the following will happen:

  • The time taken to complete the task will decrease
  • The amount of  coins you receive will increase  
  • The amount of XPs you receive will increase

YOU WILL NOT GET ALL OF THESE UPGRADES EACH TIME, ONLY ONE

Each workstation can be upgraded 20 times

Check out my Police, Filmmaker & Medical Staff posts for information on each upgrade

Why do I need to be VIP 7 to upgrade a workstation?
You don’t! If you are VIP 7 you can upgrade two workstations at once, if you aren’t you will need to wait for the previous workstation upgrade to complete before upgrading the next.

Why is it costing me LPs to build a workstation?

This is because you do not have enough resources to build or upgrade the workstation yet, just help sims and collect the resources to be able to build without it costing you LPs

Can I buy another one of each workstation?

No you cannot

How can I earn the resources I need quicker?

Watch this video:


Professions Menu

You can access this using the button in the top left hand corner of your screen when you are at the profession workplace

Workplace Overview- here you can see the workstations you have currently unlocked, what level you are on and what resources you need to upgrade them

Storage- this is where you see your current resources collected and on the right hand side is your coins, the coins are used to increase your storage if you need to and trade for resources (which is in the next tab)

How do I increase my storage space?
Go to the Storage tab and click on increase storage, this will cost you coins:

What should I do if I run out of storage space?
You can sell any unwanted resources, go to the storage tab and click on the simoleon symbol next to a resource and select the amount you want to sell for simoleons:

Resource Exchange- here you can either spin for resources using simoleons or LPs for the mega spin as well as trade coins for resources

How does the resource spin work?
There are two resource spins:

  • Resource spin costing simoleons- available for everyone, click to spin and it will spin and then you can claim your resources

  • Mega spin costing LPs- only available for VIP level 2 players, works the same as the other spin but will give you more resources.


NOTE: You can only use both of these every 4 hours unless you pay 4LPs to spin again straight away
How does trading for resources work?
On the left you have the item you are trading and on the right you have the item you will receive for trading, click trade


Reaching Level 6- Specialising a Sim

Once you reach level 6 for the first time a new quest will begin (it isn’t really a quest and yes you can do it at the same time as other quests) It shows you how to select the specialist for your sim and how to get promoted

Professions: Specialisation Training

  • Assign a specialist to a level 6 sim- click on the occupations (career) tab, find the level 6 sim and choose one of the two options for that career:

NOTE: you can only have one sim on each of these options

  • Fulfil a profession badge- check the occupations tab to find out what you need to do to complete this, I had help 3 sims, to complete this I needed to help 3 sims that came to the workplace by completing all of the tasks

Each sim can only earn one badge per shift and you need all badges before you will be able to level up in that career 

If you don’t manage to complete a badge in a shift the progress for that badge will reset and you will have start again on the next shift (for example, if your task is to help 2 important sims and you only help one, in your next shift it will reset so you will have to help 2 important sims in that shift to get the badge)

Each level requires you to complete more badges, you cannot level up until all the badges have been collected.

 

  • Build a workstation at a profession workplace- if you do not have the right amount of resources it will say it costs LPs to build- just help sims to gain resources and it won’t cost you LPs

Who are the important sims I need to help to get a badge?

These are the sims with question marks in the bubbles above their heads


Reaching Level 10

When you reach level 10 in a profession career you unlock the work outfit in that specialist for a female and male adult sim to wear at any time!

Left- metro police outfits Right- special agent outfits

Left- director outfits Right- actor outfits

Left- doctor outfits Right- nurse outfits

Find them in the wardrobe under outfits once you reach level 10


Orange Suitcase? Can’t send your sims to work?

 

This is because you have already sent them to work once today, if you are VIP level 1 you can send them to work twice in a day (this will cost you 15LPs still if you are VIP)

Wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.

Do I need to be VIP to use profession workplaces?

NO! If you are VIP you can send your sims to work twice a day (VIP level 1), upgrade more than one workstation at a time (VIP level 7) and use the mega spin (VIP level 2) but you do not need to be VIP

How do I cancel a work shift?

Click on the red cross on the sims need bar and select cancel shift

My sims are ageing to seniors before they have reached the highest level, what can I do?

I have given my sims who I want to specialise in each of the profession careers a platinum orb (read this post if you are unsure how to do that)

You could reverse their ageing (again read the post linked above) when they come to the end of their time as an adult but this is going to cost you a lot of LPs! It may be worth doing this while you are working on getting a platinum orb so you don’t have to start from level 1 with another sim and have to go through the ageing all over again!

How do you level up quicker?

The only way to level up quicker is to go to work each day and help the amount of sims needed to fulfil your work quota each day but you need to remember that each time you level up it will take you longer to reach the next level

If you are trying to complete the movie star career quicker you can use the movie camera from the promotions r store to level them up quicker

TIP: the higher level a workstation is the more career experience points you will to level up quicker

Who is this sim (pictured below) who appears?

He is the courier for the simtown market event, he will appear at the profession workplace where the event is taking place. If you complete all the tasks he has before the time above the bubble is up you will earn a market token needed to ship some orders (other orders need workplace resources to ship) You need to ship orders to fill up the bar and earn prizes:

What is the simtown market?

Give this post a read for more information on the simtown market and events!


Remember:

  • You can only send two sims to work to help sims, all other sims will be working ‘offsite’ so they will still go to work but you will not see them, like normal careers (even when your level increases you can still only have two there)
  • Only one sim can use a workstation at a time
  • Important sims are the ones with question marks in the bubbles above their heads
  • If you send a sim to work without going with them they will still level up but just slower than if they help sims and they will not earn any resources
  • You can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP 7
  • Each workstation can be upgraded 20 times
  • It will cost you LPs to build a workstation if you do not have enough resources, help more sims to collect the resources to build the workstation without LPs
  • You can only have one sim in each specialism
  • Only the sim in that specialism can use the workstations, for example only the Performer can complete the Film Set actions
  • If you are VIP you get some perks but you don’t need to be VIP!
  • There is no time limit on completing a profession career and workplace, you can take as long as you like!

The Sims Freeplay- Police Update

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys


This latest update brings a new job- police! What is most exciting is this is different from other careers as you can actually go to the police station! As well as build and upgrade new places within it!

police station can be found next to the community center

In this post I am going to explain how it works, I will create another post later that includes all the upgrades needed to completely build the police station.

Watch my video on this update here!

How is this career different?

With all other careers in the game, you send your sim to work and you don’t see them for that period of time while they are working. But with this job you can go to the police station with 2 sims and help them during their work day!

When you send a sim to work at the police station sims will enter with bubbles above their heads, you need to click on this bubble and select one of the tasks that appears, the amount of grey sections there are tells you how many tasks you have to complete before you earn the reward that is pictured in the middle of the bubble:


For example you may get these 3 tasks:

  • File Police Report
  • Receive Motivation
  • Check Police Video


Each of these has to be completed in a different workstation so file police report is at the front desk, receive motivation is in the training center and check police video is in the surveillance van

 Only one sim can use a workstation at one time (new tasks will be added when you unlock new workstations)

Each time your sims complete a task (that section will turn from grey to green) a police coin bubble will appear above their head, click this and they will earn police coins and XPs, the experience points are towards levelling up, so they will level up quicker than if you just sent them to work.

Once all the tasks have been completed all the grey sections will now appear green, click on this to receive your reward.

What are these rewards used for?

The rewards are police coins and resources used to upgrade the different workstations at the police station.

Some resources are not unlocked yet, build new workstations to unlock them

Sometimes you may see a question mark appear in the bubble instead of a resource, this is a mystery resource, you will find out what it is when you complete the tasks:

these are important sims needed to collect badges, read on to find out more

 

Can I send my sim to work on their own like a normal career? Will they still collect resources?

Yes you can send them to work on their own and they will still level up but they will not collect the resources they get when they help sims.

What are the workstations?

Rookie:

  • Training Center
  • Front Desk
  • Surveillance Van

Once your sim reaches level 6 you can decide which career to specialise them in: either Metro Police or Special Agent, you will need to have a sim as each to be able to unlock the other workstations

Metro Police:

  • Squad Car- level 6 Metro Police
  • Jail Cells- level 7 Metro Police
  • K-9 Unit- level 8 Metro Police
  • Chiefs Office- level 9 Metro Police

Only the metro police officer will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above

Special Agent:

  • Interview Room- level 6 Special Agent
  • Sketch Room- level 7 Special Agent
  • Forensics Lab- level 8 Special Agent
  • Division 51- level 9 Special Agent

Only the special agent will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above

 

When you upgrade a workstation the time taken to complete the task will decrease and the amount of police coins and XPs you receive will increase

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP

 

Reaching Level 6

Once you reach level 6 for the first time a new quest will begin- I say quest, there only appears to be two goals currently. This shows you how to select the speciality for your sim and how to get promoted

Professions: Specialization Training

  • Assign a specialist to a level 6 sim- click on the occupations (career) tab, find the level 6 sim and choose either Special Agent or Metro Police:


NOTE: you can only have one sim on each of these

  • Complete a profession badge- check the occupations tab to find out what you need to do to complete this, I had help 3 sims, to complete this I needed to help 3 sims that came into the police station by completing all of the tasks


Only one badge can be collected per shift and you need 3 badges before you will be able to reach level 7

I have to help important sims to get a badge, who are important sims?

Important sims are the ones with question marks in the bubbles above their heads.


Professions Menu

You can access this using the button in the top left hand corner of your screen when you are at the police station


Workplace Overview- here you can see the workstations you have currently unlocked, what level you are on and what resources you need to upgrade them

Storage- this is where you see your current resources collected and on the right hand side is your police coins, the police coins are used to increase your storage if you need to and trade for resources (which is in the next tab)

The simoleon symbol next to the resources in the storage means you can sell resources for simoleons, this might be helpful if you have run out of space in your storage and don’t have any police coins to increase the storage:

Resource Exchange- here you can either spin for resources using simoleons or LPs for the mega spin as well as trade police coins for resources 

 

Once your sims have helped 25 people (you need to complete all the tasks for a person to have helped 1 person) in a day they will end their shift early and you earn extra police coins and resources

NOTE: Other sims with this career will go to work but you will not be able to see or interact with them as you can only have two active sims at the police station so I would suggest you send sims who are on the highest level in this career to work first so they can level up faster and complete the tasks that a lower level sim may be unable to do.


Once you have the latest update, build the police station to get started!

Professions Training Quest

Once you have built the police station the Professions Training Quest will begin (there is no time limit to this, you just have to complete it before you can send anymore sims to work at the police station)

It is more of a tutorial than a quest

  • Visit the police station
  • Send a sim to work at the police station (give them a job at the police station the same way you usually give them a job then click on the suitcase to send a sim to work- select accompany sim to go to the station with them)
  • Help a sim at the police station- tap a bubble that appears over a sims head and complete one of the tasks
  • Help again at the police station- complete the second task on the bubble
  • Check workplace overview (found in the profession menu in the top left on your screen while at the police station)
  • Check workplace storage (second tab in the profession menu)
  • Help a sim at the police station
  • Check the work shift quota- this can be found on the work bar:

  • Fulfill special requests- this is a task where the bubble shows a question mark instead of the resource, complete the tasks to find out what resource you will be rewarded
  • Trade resources (third tab in the profession menu)
  • Upgrade a workstation- click on a green arrow at one of the workstations to get the option to upgrade it

  • Complete the remaining work day- either keep helping sims, leave your sim to work or click on the red cross on the work bar to complete shift (this will usually cost you LPs

QUEST IS COMPLETE!

You can now give other sims the police career


Orange Suitcase? Can’t send your sims to work?

 

This is because you have already sent them to work once today, if you were VIP level 1 you can send them to work at the police station twice in a day (this will cost you 20LPs if you are VIP)

Wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.

Do I need to be VIP to use the police station?

NO! If you are VIP you can send your sims to work twice a day (VIP level 1), upgrade more than one workstation at a time (VIP level 7) and use the mega spin (VIP level 2)

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE VIP TO USE THE POLICE STATION
