How to beat the heat in New Jersey

EA continues its drip feed of info on The Godfather as it outlines how the game's 'heat' system works with pursuing cops, and how the district of New Jersey looks to the Corleones.

Unsurprisingly, the heat system works in a similar way to the wanted level in GTA but, instead of it being displayed with stars, police shields are used.

If you commit a crime in the sight of the police your heat level will increase and the police will chase you; if by fleeing the police you commit more crimes, such as knocking over a pedestrian, the heat level will increase and squad cars will join the pursuit.
