Nick Walker was a promising SWAT officer before getting brutally killed in a police raid. But waking up dead isn't the only thing that alarms him as he is whisked away to a police station in the heavens. He may be dead, but to the undead souls of the R.I.P.D., he's much too good to lose and so he is enlisted into the afterlife police force of the 'Rest In Peace Department' because criminals aren't just a thing of life. He must now fight the evil souls of the underworld that have escaped judgement as they threaten to terrorise the living; helping him is the veteran Sheriff Roy Pulsifer, an expert in the field of keeping dead souls at bay. Through the chaos of the misbalance between life and death and good and evil, Nick attempts to find the man who shot him dead and bring justice to both the living and the dead.
