"Well, get in there, then!"
Munroe is a character in The Getaway series who acts as a major character in The Getaway: Black Monday.

Munroe was the boss of Ben Mitchell. He was the head of the SO19 unit, and their job is to bring an end to gang crime in the city of London.

Early Life Edit

Munroe was born in London on July 25, 1965. In his earlier years, he joined the police force and made his way into SO19 as a firearms police officer. Due to his commitment to the force, he advanced in rank and achieved himself the title of inspector. By 2004, he had his own team together and was operating out of a police station based in Holborn. The team had a primary objective of bringing an end to gang crime within the city. Despite having doubts, Munroe was confident in bringing Sergeant Ben Mitchell into his team, as although he had acquired a bad reputation, Munroe believed he was more than capable of handling himself in the field, which is what he felt his team needed.


In 2004, Munroe decided to put Mitch on his team along with Evans, Harvey and Stoppard. At first, Munroe is suspicious of Mitch and has doubts about him being on the team. During the assault on the Collins gang at the flats, Munroe instructed Mitch and the team about where they would find the drugs within the apartment block. He later witnesses a fight break out in the canteen between Mitch and Evans but decides to ignore it as they have another call to attend to. Munroe led his team into Shoreditch Boys Boxing Gym where a massacre had occurred. He then received a call from Finch informing him about Levi Stratov. Munroe then sent Mitch to arrest Levi while he spoke with other officers and secured the area at the gym. Unknown to him at the time, Sam Thompson was listening in on his conversation as he reported the deaths of Danny West, David Green, Savvy Jones, Liam Spencer and Sleeves. He then left the gym. Afterwards Munroe was present with Mitch during the interview at the Police Station. Levi insulted Munroe but refused to tell them anything. When Levi was released, Munroe told Mitch and Harvey to follow him and see where he goes. When the officers brought Jackie Philips back to the station, Munroe told them about the safe house where Jackie would remain for the time being.

He then met them both there along with Evans where Jackie revealed to them information on the Thieves in Law. The three officers then drove over to the London Underground to stop the deal between the Russians and Yardies. When the deal went wrong and Tyler opened fire, Munroe ordered Mitch and Evans to stop him while he communicated with Mitch over the radio. Mitch eventually caught up with Tyler and arrested him. When Evans took Tyler back to the station he came under attack from Yardie gang members. Mitch assisted and Munroe was in helicopter giving instructions to Mitch from the air as they searched for Tyler's car. When Mitch found it, he arrested Tyler and brought him back to the station himself where he was reunited with Munroe. As Tyler was taken inside by Evans, Munroe got a call from Jackie who told him that she knew who was in charge of the Thieves in Law. The call was interrupted when Jackie feared that the gang had found out where she was hiding. Munroe and Mitch then quickly drove over to the safe house to rescue her. When they arrived, officers protecting Jackie were already dead and Jackie was missing.


Munroe ran ahead of everyone else and confronted a Russian Youth alone in Jackie's apartment. The youth pointed his gun at Munroe's leg and shot him as he fled the room. Munroe fell to the floor injured but was still alive. Mitch approached Munroe but Munroe told Mitch to go and get the man that had just shot him. As Mitch fled the apartment, an explosion followed knocking him to the floor. As Mitch turned around, he was unable to get back into the apartment as the door had collapsed. He didn't know what had happened to Munroe immediately, but this explosion had in fact killed him.

Aftermath Edit

Afterwards, Mitch caught up with the youth who then committed suicide in front of him at a nearby hotel. Evans then joined Mitch and reported to him that Munroe had sadly been killed in the explosion at the apartment. Mitch went insane but managed to calm himself down after Evans spoke with him. Because of Munroe's death, Mitch became very angry and violent. He threatened Tyler that he would kill him unless he told him where the deal was taking place between Yardies and Russians. When Tyler gave up the information, Mitch and his team drove over to the factory to rescue Jackie. Mitch then quoted what Munroe had said earlier on in the game, "Well, get in there, then!" and took over from Munroe as the new team leader.
