He introduced the player to Carrie, explaining that she was on loan to them from the Los Angeles Police Department. He then informed them that Hugo had received a call about a murder. After he told them that he hoped that they would not disappoint him, Chief Delacroix allowed Carrie and the player to meet Hugo.

As the Chief of Police of the Parisian Police Squad, Chief Delacroix requires reports from three different "teammates" (friends who play Criminal Case and are recruited to the player's team) before he can let the player advance to the next case of City of Romance. Besides that, he notifies the player each time they level up in the season.

The player may choose Chief Delacroix to join the investigation of each crime scene (in any case in City of Romance) and provide hint bonuses. He is available as a 5-hint partner. (This feature is only available in the mobile variant of Criminal Case).
