Calm down, partner. This section is soon to be added.
As the Assistant Chief of the Aecrudian Police Department, Velma requires reports from three different "teammates" (friends who play Criminal Case and are recruited to the player's team) before she can let the player advance to the next case of Memories of the Past.
Also, as of the release of Memories of the Past, the player may choose Velma to join the investigation of each crime scene and provide hint bonuses. She is available as a 3-hint partner.
