I already have the ones from Obelisk, Foundry, Bobby Jackson and Assault Group. Any other suggestions of ones I may have missed?

The "Winter of 79" range carried by Minifigs may have a few useful figures for you. Mike Bravo miniatures had a few civilian types if they are still in business.

A bit close to home right now, don't you think?

If they are still around, Warm Acre had a police game with lots of useful types, including British Bobbies.

Bridge Miniatures has some generic bad guys in their Mutants and Madmen range – but they are comic book villains.

I remember when I was involved in the IMF and World Bank protests (and any other civil disturbance for that matter), I wondered what the best way to wargame them was. I was thinking on the macro scale so Irregulars 6mm range and their Riot rules came to mind. There is a lot to game and a lot to learn there. On the macro-level, I'd place the majority of the protesters as an NPC that is effected by player actions or random events. Players could be law enforcement in co-op (with possibly slightly different objectives if different agencies). Ne'er do wells could be incorporated as opposing gamers or random events small affinity groups like Black Blok or anarchists or whatever trying to stole the emotions of protesters and police alike.

At a smaller scale with fewer bigger figures like 28mm, I'd model the same but with a simple objective (protect a building, secure an objective, arrest an individual, etc.). I'd also incorporate police formations like diamonds, wedges, oblique lines, etc..

Our club has been doing modern skirmish games for several years now. We have a city, town and rural setting we use. Games are basically like some sort of modern cop show one might watch.
I wont lie and say I'm not inspired by the news for new ideas. But what the hell, someone sculpted them for a purpose. I'll gladly buy them and use them. No disrespect, but timing is what it is.
Thanks for the input gentlemen. There are some great miniatures I never knew existed.

The game by Warm Acre was called "No Go Zone." It was a crime game. Bad guys try to do crimes, cops try to stop it. More of a board game type thing.

Had an interesting mechanic though. No dice. There was a 5 way "rock-scissors-paper" thing. You threw down (there were 5 choices, not 3) and based on what you each did, apply the result. Kinda fun and different.
