The Watchman's Room is an area in the Resident Evil 2 remake.
Two small desks and a book case are the main the forniture at the place. The front door leads to the Lobby and beside it there is a reception counter. At the back a corridor leads to the stairs that are the main access to the basemant and the parking garage.
Interact with the roller door and Elliot Edward will try to come out of it, once the scene is over, Leon / Claire will automatically pick up the Officer's Notebook. When trying to leave the room, a zombie will go through the door used to get inside the room. More zombies will also now appear in the hallway.
In the [2nd] scenario and Elliot is also already dead / turned into a zombie and the shutter in this room is already opened, allowing player to access the save and item box at the Break Room (since both are now absent of the Main Hall).
The Scrap of Paper file is acquired here, and the player needs to make way from this room to the Break Room to get the Fuse (Main Hall), which opens the shutter that links the 1F Lobby to the Main Hall.
