The Police Quest series are traditional adventure games developed by Sierra which follow the adventures of Sonny Bonds, a police officer in the fictional city of Lytton, California, designed under the supervision of former Highway Patrol officer Jim Walls. The last game in the series are a departure from the first three, and follow the murder investigations in real-life Los Angeles led by detective John Carey. Jim Walls was replaced by former LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates. The adventure games were discontinued after the fourth game, but Sierra continued to publish "police simulators" under the brand name SWAT.

There are several Police Quest compilations. This appears to be the first one that includes:

  • Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
  • Police Quest 2: The Vengeance
  • Police Quest 3: The Kindred
  • Daryl F. Gates' Police Quest: Open Season
The fourth title is generally incompatible with later versions (ie: XP) of Windows, which is probably why the collection was re-released to make it work better. There is also a collection that includes the additional "SWAT" title.
