Early Career

The Police Officer 2 was a police officer working for the Metropolitan Police Department.

Evan's Test

At one point of his career, he got involved in the case of serial killer, Detective Mark Hoffman, who continued the deadly games of his late mentor, John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After a car crash at Pete's Auto Body, a junkyard at 58th Street, had been reported to the police, Officer Rogers, who worked for the Department for Internal Affairs, went to the junkyard, where he quickly realized that the supposed accident was actually another Jigsaw trap, which had taken the lives of Evan, Kara, Dan and Jake, a group of four racist skinheads. Therefore, the forensic team went to the crime scene. Shortly afterwards, Rogers' partner, Officer Matt Gibson, arrived at the junkyard as well.

During the examination of the crime scene, a bomb activated by Mark Hoffman detonated in one of the numerous car wrecks, causing an small explosion. Rogers called Gibson to inform him about the explosion, when seconds later, another bomb detonated, causing all the other police officers to run outside to see what was happening. Therefore, Gibson told Rogers to let the bomb squad search the junkyard before they went on with their investigation.


A few hours later, Gibson was informed by Palmer that she was able to trace Hoffman's mail to the junkyard, reason why he returned to there from the Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, after he and a SWAT team raided the place in an attempt of rescuing the victims from Hoffman's new game. Gibson saw the Police Officer 2 along with his partner, Police Officer 1, and ordered them both to take their shotguns and follow him. The two cops obeyed immediately. After this, Gibson and the two officers went to the toilet room where Hoffman had written a message for Gibson on the mirror which said: "Gibson, see for yourself". After securing the room, he quickly realized that the wall with the mirror was actually a hidden door. Therefore, Gibson took the shotgun from the police officer 1 and used it to smash the mirror, revealing a hole. After that, he broke through the door and entered a hidden hallway along with the officers. Thereby, they finally reached a surveillance room where they saw the corpse of Dan, one of the four victims of the car trap, in front of the monitors and with a hood covering his head. Thinking it was Hoffman, Gibson and the cops aimed their guns at him and ordered him to show his hands. The person however didn't react. While holding him at gunpoint, Gibson carefully approached and ultimately kicked him off the chair. Upon doing so, he realized that the figure wasn't Hoffman, but Dan. Initially confused, Gibson noticed the pictures in the wall which showed the victims of Bobby's game, and the monitors, which showed rooms from the police station, the junkyard and the Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital.  

Gibson then took a look at the angel statue from Hoffman's video standing on a pedestal. The police officer 1 asked Gibson what was happening. Gibson answered that Hoffman had hacked their camera security system and has been watching them the whole time. Gibson then realized that Hoffman was the one who caused the explosions in the junkyard in order to distract the police and be able to hide himself in Dan's body bag and infiltrate the station through the morgue. Gibson saw through one of the monitors that Dr. Heffner was preparing himself for the next autopsy with the bag in which Hoffman was inside of. Therefore, he called Palmer and ordered her to call all officers back to the station immediately. Palmer reacted with confusion. However, before he could tell her the reason for his panic, a sentry gun emerged behind him and started to fire before he could react. Gibson and the two other officers were brutally gunned until they fell dead while Palmer listened to the gunfire on the phone. Not knowing what just happened, Palmer started to call Gibson by his name and ask him if he's still there. (Saw 3D)


The corpses of Gibson and the two officers, as well as the dead bodies of Jill Tuck and several police officers murdered by Hoffman, were found shortly afterwards. The events surrounding the massacre at the police station were reported to the public by the news channels the same night. Thereby, everyone with information about the whereabouts of Mark Hoffman was requested to go to the police immediately. (Saw 3D)


Not much can be said about the 2nd Police Officer's personality due to his short screen time.
