Leon’s Desk Puzzle Solution in Resident Evil 2

During the Leon Kennedy campaign of Resident Evil 2, you’re eventually going to find yourself in the Raccoon City police station. When you reach the West Office area, which you can see on the map of the ground floor of the police station just below, Leon will find himself tasked with opening the locks on his own desk.

Poor Leon, the guy just can’t catch a break. The note on top of the desk instructs Leon that to open both locks, he must input the initials of every other officer in the room. Well, this is hard, as every other officer in the West Office is now a shambling corpse, or soon to be one (sorry, Marvin).
