is in pursuit of Shrote and eventually kills him in an explosion in a church
. Shrote's death

Shrote seems to have a very loyal group of officers at his disposal who will lay their lives on the line if he so demands. In one of the beginning missions of the game, many officers utter dialogue that proves said loyalty to Eddie and the police force. However, many of his officers have proved to be in on the payroll of Paulie Franchetti, and are stationed at his drug operations, some of which have been featured in the game.
