How to Arrest Criminals in Tropico 4

This tutorial will teach you how to arrest criminals in Tropico 4.

Step 1: Make sure you have a police station built (and staffed) and a prison (or dungeon) built and staffed.

Step 2: Open up the Almanac.

Step 3: In the Almanac, select Lists.

Step 4: On the left hand side, select Residents – Job

Step 5: On the right side, you’ll see a list of occupations. One of them is “Criminals”.  Click on one of the people under the Criminals heading to bring up his/her personal profile.

Step 6: Move your mouse over the picture of the handcuffs. It will say “Arrest($1000)” and give details. If you have the money and you want to arrest the criminal, click the handcuffs. Now that criminal will have a picture of jailbars over its head and when police catch up with him/her they will arrest them and take them to your prison or dungeon.
