Detective Fish is a hero contact in the Seven Gates neighborhood of Brickstown at coordinates (28.5, -160.5, -301). Detective Fish is a Police Band contact. He is located inside the Paragon Police Department.

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

Detective Fish's name is a reference to Detective Phil Fish, a character played by Abe Vagoda on the TV shows Barney Miller and Fish.

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

Det. Fish is reputedly modeled after Sean "Manticore" Fish, a writer for CoH.

Police Liaison

A lifetime working in Paragon City has taught Detective Fish a lot of valuable things that he continues to pass on to all those he works with.

Wrong Detective

Another hero? Alright, you're Character, right? I'm looking here and it doesn't look like you're one of mine, at least, I'm not supposed to be working with you right now. Did you talk to Detective Miller? He might be able to help you.

Too Low Level

If I'm gonna send you out there, I think you need to be ready for it. Why don't you come back when you're around security level 30 or so.

Initial Contact

You know how this works, right? I make sure you have the police band radio frequencies you need, and then if you help us out so we know we can count on you, you'll be the first one we'll talk to if something big goes down.

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.


  • How are you doing? Me, I'm a bit chilly.
  • What a day, huh?

Too Busy

Don't overdo it, Character. You've got a lot going on as it is. Why don't you finish up some of the things you're already doing for now?

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.


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!

You saved Brickstown!
