Detective Miller is a hero contact in the Seven Gates neighborhood of Brickstown at coordinates (-101, 0, -181.5). Detective Miller is a Police Band contact.

He functions as the Safeguard Mission contact as does Detective Fish.

Detective Miller's name is a reference to Captain Barney Miller, played by Hal Linden on the TV show Barney Miller.

Detective Miller and his partner Detective Fish are the only two Safeguard Contacts whose appearance are not modeled after the TV Characters they are named for.

Det. Miller is reputedly modeled after Matt Positron Miller, lead developer for CoH.

Information

Police Liaison

A long-term veteran of the force, Detective Miller has seen it all, and watched it happen with a wry smile and the sense of perspective that only a lifetime in Paragon City can give you.

Wrong Detective

Let me look at this. Okay Character, it looks like you're not on my list yet. But hey, maybe you should check with Detective Fish, too?

Too Low Level

I'm not sure you're ready for this yet. Why don't you come back around when you're about security level 30 or so?

Initial Contact

Alright Character, I don't know if you know how this works, but I'm Detective Miller, and it's part of my job to make sure you can help the police and we can help you and all that. So, let me make sure you have the police radio frequencies. Okay, here's how it works: You help us, and we'll know we can count on you. Then, if something big happens, we'll let you know first thing.

Now that you've gotten a Police Radio, you can start scanning Police chatter to hear about the crimes as they're committed in your current zone. You can then act on a report by selecting it from the Police Radio, listed under your Contacts.

Greeting

  • Don't lose your perspective.
  • It's crazy out there.

Too Busy

You seem to have a lot going on right now, Character. Maybe you should pull back a bit, and finish up some of this stuff before you start looking for new things to do.

No More Missions

Look, I have a big spiel about not losing your perspective and all, but I really don't think I need to give it to you. You know that there's bigger things for you to do, so why not just go and do some of 'em, alright?

Missions

Protect Talos Island bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

I have received information that a heist was planned in Talos Island by the Tsoo. I need your help in thwarting this attack! The Tsoo have been reported to be in the bank right now, so you whould head over there quick. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

It gets worse. It seems that Arachnos has learned about the operation, and has decided to send teams into Talos Island to take advantage of the situation and sow terror on their own. While your main goal is to stop the villain and the robbery, the more of any villain group you defeat, the more help you will be to the P.P.D.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Talos Island is still under attack!

Mission Objective(s)

Arachnos squad are everywhere, and the Tsoo appearing to be standing guard at key sites, and trashing other areas. People are terrified, and right now you may be the city's only hope

  • Protect Talos Island bank

You saved Talos Island!

Protect Brickstown bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

We've got a situation in Brickstown. Nemesis is about to make a coordinated strike on the bank, and rumor has it that Arachnos may have sent Ice Mistral to assist them. I need you to head to Brickstown and stop the assault! Reports have come in that troops have been spotted entering the bank already, so you should head over there now. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

In addition to the chaos by Nemesis troops, the Council are taking this as an opportunity to display their power, and have sent their troops into the streets. The more of them you stop, the easier it will be to clean up the streets! Be wary, if you provoke them, they may try to cause mayhem, so watch out for anyone who is vandalizing the area.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Go protect Brickstown!

Mission Objective(s)

The first thing you notice are the Council troops lining the streets, waiting for anyone to cross their path. Nemesis troops are causing mayhem, destroying property and holding guard at key locations. You can't let the city fall to these criminals!

  • Protect Brickstown bank

You saved Brickstown!
