I am really confused by the details in the game. The game setting was in 1996. There is an explicit reference in the first film. However, the sheriff in the game was named Lanning while the sheriff in the film and the mockumentaries was Ron Cravens. It is also stated in the timeline that Craven gave interview in 1999 - 3 years apart from the game. The confusing thing is that if Craven worked on the 3 students case, from 1994 to 1999, where was Lanning? Can there be 2 sheriffs in the same department? Since the game refers to the first film, it cannot set in a different universe like BOS right? The developers said themselves that this game is canon. (Maybe Lanning was a sheriff from a different county, not Burkittsville. Maybe I missed something in the game)
Yeah. They messed this up. They should have made Lanning something other than sheriff. Cravens is alive in the second film which takes place after the game. I hate when storytellers do that. Contradict what has been established previously. Possibly they (Bloober) thought it was a minor item that only uber-fans like us would catch. Casual gamers likely wouldn't question it.

"County perhaps? Didn't Cravens state that it was in Burkitt County? Idk law enforcement"
Cravens should be the fictional sheriff of Fredrick county, in which Burkittsville is located. But in the second movie when Jeff, Kim, and Stephen are being arrested the sides of the police cars say "Burkitt county"
