Get Your Silverballers
At the start break free and walk towards the fire alarm button and press it. Hide by sitting back down on the chair and wait for the police officer to have come into the room and started to turn off the alarm. Get up, subdue him, take his outfit and hide his body in the crate just outside the door to the room. Make your way up the corridor until you get into a room with another police officer in it. Be sure to take the power cord, then wait for the police officer to have turned towards the shelves for a short time:
As soon as he has turned away from the shelves sneak past him and take cover on the other side of the shelves. Wait for him to have turned his back towards you, then go towards and enter the air ventilation shaft. Go all the way to the other side. Once you are there wait for the police officer to have walked out of sight, then get out of the air ventilation shaft. Wait for the police officer to be standing in front of the book case with his hands on his hips:
Escape the Jail
Go through the swing doors out of the reception area and through the door ahead. Once you have gone through it it is the end of this part of the mission.
