Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

The player can hunt down Lindsey Wofford as a bounty, for a $100 reward. If Wofford is brought in dead, Lambert will ask for his body to be dumped in a cart behind the police station or, if brought back alive, Lambert will ask the player to put him in a prison cell. In the epilogue, if Anthony Foreman was spared by Arthur Morgan during the mission "No, No and Thrice, No", an $85 reward is offered by Benjamin Lambert for his capture.

Benjamin Lambert also appears in the stranger mission "The Mercies of Knowledge IV". In this mission, 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.

Outside of missions, the player can find Lambert standing at the reception desk of the police station in Saint Denis.

Benjamin 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.
