LA Noire Badge Pursuit Challenge: Where to find all 20 badges across Los Angeles

Find all hidden badges in the optional challenge.

LA Noire's Badge Pursuit locations are one of several collectables out in the game's open world of 1940s Los Angeles.

If you're interested in help elsewhere, our LA Noire guide and walkthrough is well worth a visit.

LA Noire's Badge Pursuit Challenge explained

One of your colleagues has been a little careless and misplaced his badge 20 times around the streets of LA. Many of these can be found at Landmark locations, so collecting them will kill a few birds with a reduced number of stones.

Here is a map of all 20 locations, and below, individual screens of their specific positions:
