VirtualCop is a Virtual Reality experience that lets you become a virtual member of the New Zealand Police, assisting officers in making Aotearoa the safest country. Your journey will take you from a command center where you’ll choose which cases to take, and out into the community where you’ll assist officers at the scene of a burglary, or in getting to know the local community in a series of mini-game interactions.

  • Choose which incoming cases to help our officers with and which units to deploy.
  • Engage in the one of the most important parts of keeping Aotearoa safe, getting to know the community!
  • Sweep a crime-scene for evidence as a Scene of Crime Officer.
  • VirtualCop is playable with or without a Virtual Reality headset!

A harrowing experience. Despite the cheery look, this game has several tonal shifts into very serious territory of the tribulations endured by our proud NZedPD.
