Parker and Lane – Criminal Justice General Tips & Tricks
Welcome to the introductory tips and tricks section of the Parker and Lane – Criminal Justice Collector’s Edition Official Walkthrough. This portion of our guide covers all the essentials of the game.
How to Play
Parker and Lane – Criminal Justice Collector’s Edition is a Time Management game. The goal of the game is to assist as many investigators as possible, as fast as you can. Investigators will enter crime scenes and request various items or tasks to assist the investigation. Retrieve the items they ask for or complete the tasks they require. Once an investigator has finished their analysis, they’ll be ready to sign out. Click on the overseeing officer or individual to check them out of the crime scene.
Scoring and Investigator Happiness
Each investigator will have a number of hearts displayed above them. These hearts show how happy or satisfied the investigator currently is. The more hearts they have, the more satisfied they are. Investigators with 5 gold hearts are the happiest and will earn you the highest scores. Investigators with lower hearts give lower scores, and investigators with no hearts will leave the crime scene without giving you any points at all. Assist investigators quickly and bring them the correct items to increase their happiness and your overall score.
GameHouse Original Story favorite Carl the mouse makes an appearance in each of the game’s 60 story levels. The mouse will appear during each level, so keep your eyes and ears open!

Welcome to the Parker and Lane – Criminal Justice Collector’s Edition Official Walkthrough! This walkthrough and strategy guide covers every part of the game: levels, challenges, mice locations, and more! Scroll up to the Contents section to quick-jump to a section or continue reading below.
Chapter 1: Levels 1 – 10
Get the deliveries!
Pick up the deliveries from the courier. Throughout the day, packages will arrive at the crime scene. Once the package icon appears over the courier’s head, click on him to receive the package. Do this a total of 3 times to complete today’s goal.
Find the scattered evidence in the crime scene.
Find the evidence scattered around the shipyard. There are 5 pieces of evidence to find. Their locations are shown below.
Earn the first star in the first half of your shift.
Get the first star in the first half of your shift! The trick here is speed. Assign forensic investigators to the markers as they show up. If more than 3 are waiting, they’ll leave! Keep an eye on the clock in the upper left corner and make sure to check out any investigators waiting with the officer on the left before it reaches the 6 o’clock position.
Put up the case board with the new clues.
Put up the case file board during your shift. A “!” bubble at the top of the screen marks where the board needs to be set up. Click on the board to put it up. Finish the task before the day’s end to earn a diamond.
No one should leave angry.
No one should leave angry today. Your goal today should be to keep officers and visitors at a steady 3 hearts or higher. Knowing where items are located is key. Access the camera bag via the table at the bottom of the screen. To restock cotton swabs and stationary, click on the box on the bottom shelf of the file cabinet, to the left of the recording studio.
Don’t remove anything from your inventory.
Don’t remove anything from your inventory today! Your inventory refers to the tray where items you pick up are placed. Be especially careful when picking up combination items which have multiple components. It’s always better to take a little extra time where needed. Get through the day without removing any items from your tray, and you’ll earn a diamond.
Stand still for 30 seconds.
Stand still for 30 seconds during your shift. During this time, you won’t be able to bring any items to investigators, or the clock will reset. The number of seconds you’ve stood still is kept track of in the upper right corner where today’s challenge is displayed. The easiest way to accomplish this challenge is at the very start or the very end of your shift.
Tip! You can still assign investigators to evidence markers without Lily Parker moving. This will buy you a little extra time if you decide to complete the challenge at the start of the day!
Remind investigators to check out!
Remind investigators to check out during your shift. Once an investigator has been assigned to a marker and has completed their task, a “!” bubble will pop up over their head. Click on the investigator to prompt them to go to the officer for checkout.
Get check out combos.
Get 5 combos at checkout. Every time you check out 2 or more investigators at the same time, you will receive a checkout combo. Earn 5 combos during your shift to complete today’s challenge.
Tip! While checking out a group of 5 investigators at once will give you the maximum score, checking out investigators in pairs of 2 is the most effective way to complete today’s challenge.
Look for hidden clues.
Look for clues hidden around Logan’s Gym. Places of interest are marked with a “!” bubble. Click on each of these locations to have Lily Parker examine them. Examine all 3 areas of interest before the day ends to complete today’s challenge.
Chapter 2: Levels 11 – 20
Never run out of any restockable items!
Today’s challenge is to never run out of any restockable items. Thankfully, the only restockable item is the plastic cup on the table at the bottom of the room. Click on the cardboard box next to the flashlight in the lower right corner to restock them. Get through the day without the stock ever dropping below 1 to complete today’s challenge.
Check if the security cameras are functioning.
Check if the security cameras are functioning. Click on the cameras attached to the wall above the scales to examine them. Complete your examination before the end of your shift to complete today’s challenge.
Tip! You can also click on the section of wall the cameras are attached to for Lily Parker to examine them.
Check the camera footage archives.
Check the camera footage archives. Click on the monitor at the desk in the center of the room marked with a “!” bubble. A meter will appear displaying your progress. Successfully complete your check before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Keep the suspect out of the crime scene.
Keep the suspect out of the crime scene. Throughout the day, the suspect will wander onto the crime scene. He’s easy to spot with his large blue eyes and cut-off shorts. When he stops wandering and the “!” bubble appears over his head, click on him to shoo him away. You have important work to do! Prevent the suspect from interfering for the duration of your shift to earn a diamond.
Investigate the scale.
Examine the scales on the table in the upper right corner. A “!” bubble will be floating over the scale at the start of the day. Click on the scales to examine them. A meter will appear displaying your progress. Complete your examination before the day ends to complete today’s challenge.
Mouse invasion! Find 15 mice.
Find 15 mice before the end of your shift. Carl the mouse will pop up in various locations throughout the day. Keep your eyes and ears open! The locations where Carl the mouse can appear are shown below.
Tip! The first mouse you find today will also count as this level’s mouse overall.
Walk 250 meters.
Walk at least 250 meters during your shift. Take the long way ‘round today! Walking as much as possible right off the bat will increase your chances of completing today’s goal faster.
Tip! To keep Lily Parker on her toes, when she’s not helping investigators, alternate clicking between Victor Lane and the restock box for the thermometers. Even if the thermometers are fully stocked, Lily Parker will still move to them.
Collect samples from the barrel.
Collect samples from the barrel during your shift. At the start of the day a “!” bubble will appear over the red barrel on the right. Click on it to collect samples. A meter will appear showing your progress. Finish collecting samples before the end of the day to earn a diamond.
Find the hidden objects in the crime scene.
Find the hidden objects scattered throughout the crime scene. There are 5 pieces of evidence for you to collect in total. Their locations are shown below.
Put up the case board with the new clues.
Like previous shifts, today’s goal is to put up the case file board. Click on the bulletin board marked with a “!” bubble to begin placing the case board. Fill the meter and complete putting up the board before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Chapter 3: Levels 21 – 30
Assist exactly five 1-heart investigators.
Assist exactly five 1-heart investigators today. Today’s challenge can be tricky. The best way to approach it is to notice the different markers. There are 2 triangles, 2 circles, and 2 squares. To keep things moving (and thus keep your score high) and complete today’s challenge at the same time, leave 1 investigator at 1 of the previously mentioned markers, and let investigators come and go at the 2nd. This way, you can control 5 investigators and only help them once they reach 1 heart, but the marker station remains open, preventing a backlog or pileup, or worse – investigators leaving!
Tip! Alternatively, you can let the investigators lose hearts at checkout, but then you risk losing hearts from all investigators – not just 5. It’s important to be efficient!
Finish with an empty inventory.
Complete your day with an empty inventory. Today’s challenge is simple. As long as you take care and only pick up the items as they’re ordered, you’ll earn a diamond with ease.
Ensure every investigator stays happy.
Make sure every investigator stays happy today. Investigators will need to have at least 3 hearts to fulfill this goal. Serve them quickly, taking care not to leave anyone waiting for too long. Remember, investigators with gold hearts won’t lose happiness even if they’re waiting at checkout.
Secret lover – search for romantic evidence.
Search for secrets hidden around Logan’s house. There are 2 areas of interest, each marked by a “!” bubble. Click on these areas and finish examining them before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Search the trash and mail.
Search the trash and the mail at the crime scene in Logan’s house. Both areas are marked with a “!” bubble. Finish examining both before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Don’t assist anyone for 20 seconds.
Don’t assist anyone for 20 seconds. This is a challenge which can easily be completed at the start of the day. Go 20 seconds without picking up an item or moving to Victor Lane to complete today’s challenge.
Tip! You can still assign investigators to markers. This does not count as assisting an investigator, making completing this challenge at the very start of the day quite feasible. As long as Lily Parker isn’t moving, she’s not assisting anyone.
Sign out 5 batches of precisely 2 investigators.
Checkout 5 groups of 2 investigators at the crime scene today. It’s best to focus on this goal at the very start of the day. An investigator won’t move to Victor Lane to sign out until Lily Parker has assisted them, giving you control of how many investigators move to checkout and when. Aid investigators in groups of 2. Once you’ve checked out 5 groups of 2 investigators, make sure you’re only checking out 3 or more, or singles for the rest of the day.
Send the boxes to the warehouse.
Send the boxes to the warehouse over the course of your shift. The boxes are located on the right, next to the rightmost triangle marker. Click on one of the 3 boxes at any time to add it to your inventory tray. Throughout the day, Stella Duvall will show up to pick up the boxes. A bubble will pop up over her head once she’s ready. Pick up a box to put in your inventory, then click on Stella to hand it off to her. Pass all the boxes off to Stella before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Tip! You can add the 3 boxes to your inventory at any time. If you need to remove one at any point, click on the box in your inventory to cross it off. It will be removed from your tray and returned to the area next to the triangle marker where it was found.
Couch potato – investigate the couch for clues.
Investigate the couch for clues. A “!” bubble will appear over the couch. Click on the couch to investigate – a meter will appear displaying your progress. Finish examining the couch before the end of your shift to complete today’s goal.
Put up the case board with the new clues.
Time to put up the new case board! A “!” bubble will appear over the bulletin board. Click on it to hang the case board. Complete the task before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Chapter 4: Levels 31 – 40
Never run out of restockable tools.
Never run out of stock of any item today. There’s several items which must be stocked, and 2 boxes with which to replenish that stock. The restock boxes are circled in the screenshot below. Make sure no item drops to 0 stock and you’ll earn a diamond for today’s challenge.
Make 20 investigators ecstatic.
Make 20 investigators ecstatic today! Ecstatic investigators will have gold hearts over their head. Restock at the start of the day and serve investigators quickly. Remember, gold-heart investigators won’t run out of patience at sign-out, allowing you to build up checkout combos.
Tip! The number of ecstatic investigators you’ve helped is kept track of in the upper right corner of the screen.
Today’s challenge is to analyze blood. A “!” bubble will appear over the equipment on the left. Click on it to enter the minigame Perform Crystallography! Place the correct piece(s) into the matching shape in the lens to complete the minigame. Repeat this task 6 times throughout the day as the “!” bubble appears to complete today’s goal.
Don’t pick or make 2 of the same item consecutively.
Don’t pick up or make 2 of the same item at any time today. If the same item is ordered back-to-back, pick up something else first. You can always cross extra items off your inventory tray on the left.
The cake isn’t a lie. The cake is located on the right side of the upper work table. You’ll need to add different ingredients and components to the cake… for science. Gather the ingredients or components needed for the cake. A bubble showing what’s needed will appear over it. Add all 5 necessary components before the end of the day to complete today’s challenge. Look at that! We’re doing science and we’re still alive.
Don’t have more than 2 orders in your inventory at once.
Only carry 1 order at a time on your inventory tray. This means no back-to-back combos in serving investigators, or you’ll fail today’s challenge. Only help 1 investigator at a time. For highs score combos, focus on checking out multiple investigators at sign-out instead.
Research the poison.
Today’s goal is to research the poison. A “!” bubble will pop up over the green computer on the left. Click on the computer to research the poison. You’ll need to do 3 rounds of research before the end of the day to complete your goal.
Assist investigators within 20 seconds of each other.
Assist investigators within 20 seconds of each other today. The hardest part of this challenge is accounting for the time needed to prepare certain items. Restock at the start of the day and don’t be afraid to take a little longer as necessary to ensure a steady flow of investigators for your goal.
Have every tool fully stocked at once.
Have all products fully stocking simultaneously. To complete this challenge, simply restock items using the boxes in the lower left and right corners until all have been completely stocked. This can be done at the very start of the day, allowing you to play the rest of the shift as per normal.
Don’t destroy anything by spilling, spoiling, or burning.
Don’t let anything be destroyed today. Keep a close eye on any items that require additional preparation time. Don’t be afraid to slow down just a bit to ensure nothing spills, burns, or spoils.
Chapter 5: Levels 41 – 50
Don’t stand still for longer than 20 seconds.
Look alive and keep on your toes! Don’t stand still for more than 20 seconds at any point today.

Lily Parker will move back and forth between the tables as they’re clicked, keeping her on her feet without interrupting your workflow with investigators.
Check all the tables.
Examine all the tables during your shift. Tables are marked with a “!” bubble. Once you click on a table to examine it, a meter will appear displaying your progress. Successfully examine all 4 tables before the end of your shift to earn a diamond.
Check the back door.
Today’s priority is to check the back door. A “!” bubble will appear in the back doorway whenever it can be checked by Victor Lane. Click on the doorway to send Victor Lane to check the back. Do this a total of 5 times today to complete today’s goal.
Interrogate Mrs. Walsh.
Today your job is to interrogate Mrs. Walsh. She’s standing in the lower right corner. A “!” bubble will appear over her head whenever she can be interrogated. Question Mrs. Walsh a total of 5 times to complete today’s goal.
Give 10 investigators their requests within 10 seconds.
Assist 10 investigators within 10 seconds. A meter in the upper right corner will help you keep track of your progress and the time taken. Remember it will take Lily Parker time to prepare items, so it’s important to serve investigators as quickly as possible. Assist a total of 10 investigators, each within a 10 second timeframe, to complete today’s challenge.
Tip! Try keeping popular items on your inventory tray to save time.
Don’t let any investigators drop below 3 hearts.

It’s that time again! Hang up the case board before the end of the day. The case board is marked with a “!” bubble. Click on it to add the new clues. If you complete the task before the day’s end, you’ll earn a diamond.

You can remove extra inventory tray items by clicking on them.

Keep Stella from walking away.
Keep Stella from walking away by clicking on her. Stella Duvall is located in the bottom right corner. A meter will appear over her head indicating how much time is left before she’ll walk away. Keep her from leaving for the entire day to earn a diamond.
Tip! You can click on Stella as many times as you want, even if the meter isn’t present. Save time by clicking on her whenever you’re not busy with other tasks.
Chapter 6: Levels 51 – 60
Get into Vasquez’s office, close the door, and stay there for 3 seconds.
Report to Vasquez a total of 3 times today. Every time you need to report, a “!” bubble will appear over the door with the sheriff’s star on the left. Click on it to report. Finish your reports successfully today and you’ll earn a diamond.

Walk no more than 1,000 meters.
Don’t walk more than 1,000 steps today. Avoid restocking at the start of the day and only pick up items as needed. It doesn’t hurt to wait for more than 1 order to maximize your efforts. Try to check out investigators in large groups to save on steps as well.

Only deliver full orders today. A full order means bringing all the items an investigator asks for in a single trip. Don’t forget to restock at the start of the day!
Never assist the same investigator twice in a row.
Never assist the same investigator twice in a row. Bringing full orders today is especially important to keep things organized. If only 1 investigator is present and has already been assisted, wait for another to arrive and help them before returning to help the original investigator.
Never have more than 2 investigators in the exit queue.
Never have more than 2 investigators waiting with the officer to sign out. You have a certain amount of control over this challenge depending on the timing in which you assist investigators. Check out investigators as singles, or in groups of 2 today. No more than 2, or you’ll fail today’s challenge.

Memorize investigator orders.

Any product added to your inventory today will turn into a “?” as soon as it lands on your inventory tray. Keep track of which investigators you’re assisting and take extra care when picking up items.
Appliances work more slowly.

Check out just one person at a time.
One at a time, please! Check out investigators one at a time today. If more than 1 are queued for checkout, you’ll fail today’s challenge.

People will enter in a bad mood.
Everyone’s entering in a bad mood today, so quick service is paramount. Don’t keep anyone waiting for any length of time. Your top priority should be moving people to and from stations to get their hearts up. Remember, quick service means bonuses that will not only increase your score, but their moods.
All restockables have a maximum of 1 stock.
Every item with limited stock will be limited to 1 today. You’ll be restocking often throughout the day, so take this into account with your time management.
Everyone orders restockable products.
All the items ordered today will come from limited stock. Restock throughout the day, every chance you get to prevent any build-up or backlog.
Only ecstatic investigators give you points.
Gold heart investigators will be the only ones to give you points today. Place emphasis on serving full orders quickly to increase their hearts and mood. Don’t worry about checkout: Any investigators with gold hearts will have infinite patience, giving you time to serve more investigators quickly.
Play with an inventory that gets smaller as the level progresses.
Your inventory tray will decrease in size throughout the day. Therefore, it’s important to get as many full order combos and consecutive services as possible before you no longer have enough tray slots to do so.
Items only stay in your inventory for a few seconds.
Items and products added to your inventory tray will only stay for a handful of moments before they vanish. Keep a sharp eye on your tray and focus on only serving 1 investigator at a time. Don’t hesitate to take multiple trips if necessary.
