Ito Shiroba (白場維人, Shiroba Ito) is a motorcycle traffic cop.

Plot[]

Shiroba stops Kyosuke Higuchi, who is speeding in order to reach Sakura TV before Touta Matsuda can reveal that he is Kira. Higuchi uses his Shinigami Eyes to get the name of the officer, which he writes in the Death Note while pretending to look for identification. Higuchi then speeds off again in the middle of the stop. Shiroba sets off in pursuit, only to suffer a fatal accident caused by the Death Note, crashing into a lorry.

This leads Ryuzaki to realize that Higuchi has acquired the means to kill just by looking at a person's face, and he orders extra precautions to be taken in order to ensure Higuchi's eventual arrest.

He appears in the TV drama, in which he ultimately plays the same role. However, he has a different name, and we see his lifespan.

Trivia[]

  • Viz's translation mistakenly identifies Shiroba as being Yukito Shiraba.
  • 白場維人, when read, is pronounced as 白バイ人, which converts to "police bike," a reference to Shiroba's occupation as a traffic cop.
