Quick question, we have played this game twice now and the rules state that the police move one to two spaces and jack always moves one space.

Our question is, are they required to move on their turns or can they stay in one spot? We figure Jack must always move but the wording on the police movement is kind of vague.

Police can move up to two spaces, but doesn't have to :-)

The police may move 0, 1 or 2 spaces.

Rules, page 10
Quote:
After consulting together, the detectives move their Policeman pawns. Each player moves the pawn(s) whose Policemen he controls, starting with the Head of the Investigation and proceeding clockwise around the table. The Policeman pawns are moved along the dotted lines. When moving, a policeman can move up to a distance of two crossings. Policeman pawns ignore numbered circles when moving.

So, up to a distance of 2, means they can also move 0, correct?

Yep, you will find it can be extremely beneficial to leave the police where they are and block Jacks path.
