In a game that allows you to commit questionable acts, the last thing you want is to be chased by an armed militia. So here’s how to get rid of the Crime in Progress status in Palworld.
Palworld has quickly become the most important newcomer of 2024 with its wild gameplay, aptly dubbed the “Pokémon with guns.”
With the immense freedom that Palworld offers players, you can absolutely enslave Pals and humans to do your bidding, although the latter is completely illegal and the authorities will come after you if you do so. And that’s just one of the many break-ins you can commit in the game.
Here is how to remove the Crime in Progress status in Palworld if the situation arises.

Fortunately, there are ways to remove the Crime in Progress status, allowing you to continue going about your business. Here are the best methods to do it.
Surrender and Die

You can also bring them back to your base for your Pals to fight with you. Also, luring them to a Boss Pal who can take care of them for you is an option to consider.
Kill the Witnesses
Alternatively, you can remove the Crime in Progress status by killing any witnesses who could report your misdeeds. It is best to kill all witnesses before the People’s Militia arrives on the scene.

Another way to end the Crime in Progress status is to simply run away until it disappears.
This can be a bit difficult since the People’s Militia will chase you for quite a long time before giving up. But if you hold on, the Crime in Progress status will indeed disappear.
Exit and Reload
The smartest option is to exit the game and reload. However, this was certainly not intended by the developers.
This method is excellent and the fastest to end the Crime in Progress status. It allows you not to have to spend resources or lose items.
