The police deputy hat is a hat that's worn by sheriff's deputies.


The police deputy hat provides a minor amount of water resistance. They have a high chance of being knocked off of the wearer's head when they're attacked.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Hat_Police_Grey distribution Show / Hide
Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
Building/Room Container Effective chance
bathroom locker 10.78%
changeroom locker 10.78%
closet crate 6.29%
garagestorage crate 6.29%
storageunit crate 6.29%

Police deputy jackets can be occasionally found on police zombies. Police zombies can rarely be found in the vicinity of areas that contain a zombie population. Police zombies can usually be found at police precincts, near police vehicles, police barricade vehicle stories and the police intervention variant of the prison escape survivor story.
