Red Dead Wiki

Benjamin Lambert is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.



Benjamin Lambert became the police chief of the Saint Denis Police Department at some point prior to 1898.

Events of Red Dead Online

Lambert can be found sitting at the reception desk of the Saint Denis police station.

If the player becomes a bounty hunter, they can capture various wanted individuals that appear on the bounty board outside the police station, and bring them in dead or alive. Lambert will pay them every time, and make a comment depending on whether the criminal is alive or dead.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

The player can collect two bounties from him: Lindsey Wofford and potentially Anthony Foreman. He also appears in the stranger mission "The Mercies of Knowledge IV", in which the player must ask Lambert for a permit to publicly demonstrate Andrew Bell III's electric chair. Lambert sets the price at $100, but after negotiating with him, the price can be cut in half.

Lambert maintains the position as Saint Denis Police Chief by 1907.



Benjamin Lambert is a white, middle-aged man with dark brown hair and a brown handlebar mustache. He wears a blue police uniform, complete with a blue peaked hat upon his head.

  • Police Chief Lambert seems to be in the pocket of Angelo Bronte as a telegram addressed to him can be found in Bronte's mansion that the Van der Linde gang is planning to rob the trolley station.
