The Sims 4 Get to Work: Detective

Solving Cases and Active Career Rewards

Arresting a suspect Sim as a Detective
This Sim is the suspect. Thankfully, the Detective won't have to see the daughter's reaction.

The Sims 4 Get to Work features the ability to play Detective. In this Active Career track, you will gradually gain more freedom to pursue solving cases and get promotions. In this guide, I'll discuss some of the activities these law enforcers can pursue while on the job, and the best methods to completing cases and locking up suspects.

How to: Detective Career Cheats
Press Control + Shift + C then type testingcheats on and press enter. You can now get promotions with careers.promote detective - you can also see all Career Cheats or visit a full list of Cheats in The Sims 4.

Getting Promoted in The Sims 4 Get to Work
Cop Promotions come with a lot of jail objects, allowing you to make your own in-home prison. Career Rewards don't offer Focused auras. They just make your home look like work.

Much of what I have to say relates to the Career after level 4, when a Sim is expected to start solving cases on their own. You can find a partial list of career objectives below and how to complete them. After the first level, you will make more progress on a case and get to arrest your first suspect. At level 3, you're expected to interrogate them. For these first three levels, follow the instructions and try to complete as many objectives as possible while in the Ideal Mood of Focused. After you secure your first confession, you will have level 4's 'Solve one case' complete and be ready to solve more.

The Crime Map is the object you use to travel and start new cases
The Crime Map lets your Detective go on patrol, head to crime scenes, and issue APBs to arrest suspects

Recommended Traits and Rewards
The Genius Trait is helpful, since it makes Sims Focused at random which may happen at a good time. So is Good, because it gives a Happy Moodlet whenever a Sim nearby is in a positive mood, and they usually are. Detectives benefit greatly from learning Sims' Traits. This means that the Observant Reward (500 Points) is super helpful to Detectives. They'll know Traits right away when meeting a Sim. Other factors for making an arrest are on you - assessing a Sim's physical appearance should they fit the bill. Take Entrepreneurial for 2,000 points whenever you have them to spare, and it will help you to get promoted much faster so long as you can meet the minimum solved case requirements.

Searching for Clues
Searching for Clues may yield valuable evidence. Use this in different areas of a lot to reveal gloves, wallets, and other small items that can be photographed and collected

Getting Focused at Work
Use interactions that can get your Sim Focused before heading to a crime scene - like Level 2 Gardening's Research Gardening at Computer, when used with Browse Simpedia is very powerful and may result in Very Focused. Unlock Research Gardening by buying a low level Gardening Skill book, then reading it in your Sim's spare time. You should be able to maintain Focus while at the station. Make lots of Mathematical Diagrams at home, then take them with you to work. This is done when a Sim is Focused and using an easel to paint one. Hang these, enable their emotional auras in places your Sim works - the interrogation room, the evidence analysis room, and where your Sim typically uses the computer. 'View Focused Work' on them before you head out to a crime scene and your Sim will get a nice Focused buff that lasts outside the painting's range.

Detective goes on patrol in The Sims 4 Get to Work
While patrolling, it's your job to issue citations to Sims who commit crimes

Going on Patrol
This seems to be - aside from office chatter - the lone police task unrelated to the main crimes a Detective must solve, but is something you have to do early on to ensure a promotion. It raises performance a bit, but is overall time consuming. It's better to work on solving cases, as that ultimately determines the promotions in the Detective Career. Do this early when needed to complete the tutorial phase and unlock a promotion, then avoid it when possible. Talk to civilians but look carefully for crimes in progress in order to issue citations.

Getting a witness report in The Sims 4 Get to Work
Getting a witness report provides valuable information to your Detective while filling career performance for the day

Crime Scenes: Clues and Witness Reports
When you first enter a crime scene, pause and assess the situation. Allow objectives to swap for the new situation. You can sometimes tell what objects are involved from where other officers are standing. Look for dirty or damaged objects, as well as things out of place on the floor. Click the ground to get 'radar' on where nearby clues are located. Objects of interest will appear, such as gloves and shoes. First take photos, collect as many clues as you can, then talk to the witnesses. Look to Sims outside on the street once you've talked to every witness in the house - the ones who linger are likely to be witnesses.

You can tell if they have the option to take witness reports when clicking them. Sometimes the game will tell you to get a report from another witness when one can't be found. With the game paused, look for evidence you haven't yet gathered even when it isn't listed as an objective. This will give you more clues, which may be used on later cases (Hah!). From there, return to the station as quickly as you can so that you can complete more work before the shift ends. You should stay on the crime scene lot and complete as many objectives as possible to both raise your performance and simultaneously give you more clues for later, when you will need to issue an APB and make an arrest. The more clues you have, the less chance there is you have arrested the wrong suspect. It will be up to you to find the criminal in the end, so evidence collection is crucial to your performance.

Analyze Evidence in the lab
Analyzing Evidence may yield clues that can help you find the suspect. Sometimes it fails. That's why you should gather loads of evidence

Back at the Police Station: Completing Career Objectives
In the later stages of the Career, your main goal is to solve cases. That's what Detectives do! On first arrival at the station, pause the game so that your new objectives have time to roll in. When you have options on what objectives will boost performance, stick with those that are related to your case. Traveling to a new crime scene will actually continue the search for your initial suspect, and the crimes will often be similar. You will get more clues about this mystery Sim by going to a new scene. Use the board and add clues, add information to the database when you're able, and stick to the case! Deduce Clues on the Crime Map to use this ability and sometimes get a new clue. You will need to wait several hours to do it again, but it's worth doing to get that one more trait or physical characteristic about your suspect. Fingerprinting perps and booking them is for cadets and normal officers. Even when you're aspiring to be a detective, this is good advice. Booking suspects takes time, and when it's not part of the crime you're working on, you're not making progress on your case. This is especially true because of the time it takes to move a prisoner from the cell to the booking station. There is a lot of standing around to do while waiting to get them out. It's not worthy of your time unless it's the only objective available.





Clues help you identify the right Sim for an arrest
Clues will help you identify the right Sim for an arrest, once an APB has been issued

In general, pursue objectives related to evidence once you have been assigned a case at the computer. Analyze evidence, cross-reference at the computer, and try to get to the point your Sim can issue an APB.

Issuing an APB
Once enough clues are gathered, you can issue an APB for the suspect. The all points bulletin from the Crime Map object will take you to the scene where a suspect can be arrested.

Making an Arrest: Using the Notebook
While your notification wall will tell you new things you learn about the suspect, you can use your phone's notebook to keep track of all clues for your case. This thing is great, it even tracks gardening plant combos. Click the phone, then notebook via the little icon at the top of the phone screen. That will show you all clues you've figured out, which is handy for making an arrest. Talk to people in that location and ask them about the suspect. People may even point in the direction of your actual perpetrator, but it's possible they are wrong.

Arresting the right suspect in Get to Work as a Detective
One of you hates children, and I know it! Both of these fit the description, but one should have that Trait. That is the one to arrest!

Finding the Suspect
Talk to Sims you think are the suspect, based on the description in your notebook. The suspect is guaranteed to be on that lot. Use the 'Get to Know' interaction to learn a Sim's trait. Use deep conversation and discuss interests to learn more traits when you think you have the right Sim. They'll always be wearing what is described in the evidence. Keep talking to them in a friendly way until you find a couple of traits that match the clues in your notebook. Don't just jump and arrest someone because of a single trait, but make sure they perfectly match the description. An Adult does not mean Young Adult, and vice versa. You want to make sure you're right when you make the arrest. When you're sure, bring them in to the station via the Arrest interaction. Arresting the wrong Sim will waste a lot of your time, so it's a performance hit no matter what.

Playing bad cop while interrogating a suspect
Good Cop and Bad Cop both have their places in interrogation.

Interrogations
Once back with your suspect, you'll need to interrogate them. Interrogations take place in the appropriately named room, where you get special dialog options while sitting with that Sim. You can choose from Good Cop or Bad Cop routines, or else stick with showing them the evidence. There is bar for the conversation that indicates how far the suspect is from confessing to the crime. Bad Cop and Good Cop both get a special interaction when focused - Pretend to be Friends (Good) and Ask Trick Question (Bad). You can hang a focusing painting here, whether it be a mathematical diagram or space print so that your Sim will stay focused while interrogating.

Detective in The Sims 4 Get to Work
A Detective interrogates a suspect who is close to confessing her crimes

Use the suspect's mood to your advantage. If they seem worried, you can 'Describe Horrors of Prison' to play off that. If they're friendly, you can play good cop and gradually bring the meter up. Either way, get the bar to half then start to mix in evidence, but don't bluff it as that may lower the bar. As you gradually raise the bar, show more and more evidence to finish off the interrogation. At the point the bar is full, you can get a confession. When that's done, no matter what objectives you may have, lock them in a cell to close the case.

Leftover Evidence
Once you've completed a case, an exploit of sorts presents itself when you have leftover evidence. This evidence will now pertain to the new case you're assigned to - it's up to you whether you'll use it or discard the items from your Sim's inventory.

Searching a suspect for anything they shouldn't have
Suspects need to be searched sometimes when you're still a low level cop. Get promotions to focus hard on solving cases.

Common Interactions and Where to Do Them

  • Go on Patrol, Go to Crime Scene, Issue APB - Use the Crime Map to do these things. It is also where you start new cases and add clues.
  • Talk to the Chief - Find this specific interaction under the Friendly menu.
  • Analyze Evidence - use the lab equipment in the room to the left of the station entrance.
  • Fingerprint, Search, Mug Shots for Suspects - look to the prisoners in orange within the cells, and click them to get the option to take them. I never bothered to return one to the cell - they will be taken by another officer, but who knows! Someone might escape. It just didn't happen to me.
  • Interrogate - this only happens when you've just used the Arrest interaction and are returning to the station with your suspect.
  • Finding/Photographing more Clues - use the 'Search for Clues' interaction in strategic places on the lot. Clues such as wallets, shoes, and gloves will appear that you can then tag and bag.

Hm. So I'm comparing the notes for Chief listed here to the table at the bottom of the careers page here: http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/careers/

And I can't seem to think of any particular reason to choose Detective over... Well, most of the other careers. It looks like it's pretty middle-of-the-road in terms of income, but has a lot more hours/days worked compared to most, removing one of the major benefits to capping a career: Not having to work a 5-day week anymore. You're nearly better off at level 9 than 10 in this path because of it.

Are the rewards for working your way up worth it for themselves, or is it more of a "play it for the fun of it" dealio and it's not that great in terms of min/maxing?

It is best to stay late and get the interrogation completed but the perp should still be at the Police Station the next work day. There has been a few reported bugs with this.

I've found that the "Evil" trait is very helpful in interrogations. You get a "Near Misery" 1+ Happy moodlet because your suspect is tense. If you are focused, it boosts that as well. (Note: The Evil trait doesn't seem to negatively affect any aspect of detective career as far as I can tell, but it does make it a breeze.)

Some build/buy items can not be placed into a sims personal inventory but they will be available to you to use in build mode anywhere. If you can't find the particular items you could note down their names while at home so you can access the household inventory or they may be in the career section of the styled rooms in build mode where you can just drag them out and place them from there.

You can pick up where you left off but it is better to do the arrest and confession all in one day though just in case the suspect is missing from the police station when you load your game up again/go back to work the next day. Usually I time each arrest so it happens at the beginning of a work day.

I don't think he does say anything particularly 'friendly' but the chief is supposed to be that stereotypical 'tough cop' who keeps his detectives in-line. What the chief says is not an indication of a job well done, that comes from completing daily tasks and the notification at the end of the work day.

I'm not aware of any cheats to do that. Get all the clues possible (6) and travel to the location-issue the apb and make a good guess. That really is about all you can do. Try deleting the localthumbcache.package file from your TheSims 4 folder as sometimes this is enough to clear out smaller glitches. If your sim gets demoted due to wrong guesses you can cheat him/her back up to the original level. testingcheats on then careers.promote detective

However, I have a detective in my rotational play, and I've realized that his crime scenes are all in City Living apartments, and there are NO CLUES.

I even arrested the same woman twice because she is appearing at every scene!! all of them are wrong, and if i get another one wrong my work performance will fall below average.

This part of the career can be quite glitchy. Try getting all the clues possible (6) before heading out to search for the suspect. Once you have all the clues make the best guess possible, 5/6 of the clues at least matching. It isn't always possible and if you get it wrong too many times your sim can get demoted, in which case you may need to cheat them back up.

HELP! So every single time I go to play as the detective career, it all goes okay until I go to issue (my first) ABP. It takes me to the loading screen, and once its "loaded" it just takes me to the worlds menu. As if I had just opened my game. When I go to play as the family I just came from, or any family for that matter, it just takes me back to the world screen! I have tried to play this in so many families, but it does the same thing every time! Someone help me please, this career seems great!Unsure

I'm sorry to say i really don't have any practical advice for you. Sad This career is unfortunately very buggy for some players. If you are not using any mods or cc and this is still happening then I would report it to EA.
This is a list of the current bugs in the detective career. Current Bugs Perhaps reading through those might give you some clues as to what is going wrong for you. it does sound like a game bug though, needing a developers fix.
You can try a Factory Reset as that may fix your current issues. Good luck!

As I said in my reply above, this career is extremely buggy for many players. All you can do is often make a guess after trying to locate the suspect through the clues. Ages get mixed up and clothes don't always match etc. It is a pain but not much else you can do as this requires a developers fix.

"An Adult does not mean Young Adult, and vice versa.
