The Batsignal is a method of communication used by Commissioner Gordon to alert Batman of a priority case. A modified searchlight resides on the roof of the Gotham Police Department headquarters. When turned on, it projects Batman's emblem into the sky. One such night, Gordon had the Batsignal turned on. He briefed Batman on Paris Franz while Detective Bullock turned the signal off. Batgirl kept her distance to avoid direct contact with Gordon. A week later, the Batsignal was activated while Batman was questioning callgirls about the Joker. Bullock presented Batman with an envelope bearing his emblem. It contained tickets to the Bonus Brothers Carnival and Amusement Park.
