The timeline for the Police Quest and SWAT games is not consistent, therefore it is not possible to use the following article as an official timeline of events, but rather just an assortment of referenced dates.

The original three games more or less are in order chronologically. Although in some cases, especially in the file cabinets and crime computer in Police Quest 2, two or more dates were given for the same event. Sometimes the dates given put the events out of order from their occurences in the previous game.

The games have commonly given reoccuring characters multiple birthdates over the course of the series.

The remake of Police Quest 1 actually set the events in game one year after date of events in Police Quest 3. Below is a list of dates in chronological order with reference to were the dates originate.

Note:For the case of Police Quest 2 dates, the source of the date will be given wherever the dates in the file cabinet and crime computer are at odds. Some alternate birth dates may exist due to the character's alternate identities.
