Police Simulator: Patrol Officers Callouts Now More Frequent in Update 8.0.0

Update 8.0.0
Update 8.0.0 Steam

The last patch for Police Simulator: Patrol Officers this year was released not long ago. Update 8.0.0 does not bring new content, but it offers a plethora of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

Players of PS:PO will be quite busy after the update because the developers have increased the frequency of callouts. From mundane tasks like giving directions to more difficult assignments like stopping a robbery, players have to be ready for what is to come.

Speaking of callouts, a timer has been added so that players won’t get blasted with NPC interactions when starting a shift.

Now, road accidents can happen and will inevitably result in traffic. Fortunately, players can now call a tow truck and ambulance in Update 8.0.0. They also have the ability to cancel the request if accidents are not a cause for concern.

So, what got fixed in this patch? Well, the issue where the enable/disable callout function was not working properly has been addressed. The bug that prevented the second player from setting up cones has been fixed as well.
