The brave men and women of the Liberty Police, Inc. are the only ones standing between honest Libertonian citizens and chaos. In a House like Liberty, it takes more than a government police force to keep order - it takes a multi-level, far-reaching, privately-owned, well-connected organization with an enormous budget, tough cops, smart detectives and a Chief of Police who won't be bullied by the corporations and the organized crime. Liberty Police is such an organization: one that keeps its citizens safe and the crime levels down.

The Liberty Police, Inc. is responsible for enforcing the law throughout the sprawling republic - from Cortez to New Hampshire, Pennsylvania to Colorado, and all the corps and criminals in between. The officers of the LPI must deal with everything: gang warfare, riots, organized crime and corruption. And all to often, armies of corporate lawyers see to it that even the LPI's best efforts result in no more than a slap on the wrist.

Departments, Bureaus and Units
There are several departments within the LPI. Traditionally, officers have only been assigned to one of the departments at a time, however with the recent rise in crimes commited within Liberty more flexibility was needed. As such, now the dispatch only assigns tasks to specific departments which then have free choice of assigning any available officer on duty to a particular task.

Patrol
Patrol is the department responsible for prevention of crime. They will often report sightings of suspicious activity to the dispatch, question suspects and take care of smaller offenses.

Traffic
Traffic department deals with all manner of non-violent crimes commited within Liberty, such as smuggling, possession of restricted ships or equipment and others, commited by individuals.

Vice
The Vice unit is responsible for combatting organised crime within Liberty, especially that pertaining to prostitution, drugs, slavery and others.

Fraud
Fraud department is a section of the LPI concerned with forgeries and other white-collar crimes.

Homicide
The Homicide department is responsible for investigations of murders in Liberty.

Special Crimes
The Special Crimes bureau is mostly concerned with unusual and less prevalent cases, mostly pertaining to various instances of corporate crime, abuse, oversight or espionage.

Forensics
The Forensics lab use specialised skills and technologies to aid other departments in solving a variety of crimes and obtaining evidence suitable for convicting criminals.

Riot Control
Riot Control is the heavy weapons unit of the LPI, having access to the hardest-hitting arsenal available to the Police force. The SWAT squad is a part of the Riot Control department.

Admin
The Management and Administration (or Admin) bureau is concerned with various adminsitration work for the Police. Admin operates the dispatch as well as the Logistics ships.



Precincts
Precincts are specific territorial areas of operations for the Police.

New York Precinct
The main bases are Planet Manhattan and the LPI headquarters at Fort Bush. New York is the capital system of Liberty and by far the most patrolled, seeing significant pirate activity from all criminal organisations operating in Liberty as well as many smugglers.

California Precinct
The main base is Planet Los Angeles. San Diego Border Station was home to the California Precinct until its destruction by the Gallic Navy. California Precinct also dispatches patrols into the Liberty-controlled parts of Magellan and Cortez systems.

Texas Precinct
The main base here is Houston. The LPI prisons Huntsville and Sugarland are in this system. Houston is also home to Cryer’s Houston Heavy Technologies subsidiary.

Colorado Precinct
The main base is the Admin department headquarters at the Police Plaza. Colorado is home to the Denver Research Institute as well as Pueblo - one of the main Ageira manufacturing plants. Colorado also houses the Police training facility at Battleship McNeil Island and the highest security prison in Liberty - Attica Supermax.

Pennsylvania Precinct
The main base of operations in Pennsylvania is the Philadelphia Station. Pennsylvania is a frequent target of raids by the Rogues and Xenos against the mining operations in the Hallam Nebula.

Western Precinct
The primary base for the Western Precinct, which encompasses the systems of Ontario and Alberta, is the Fort Severn. The separate Ontario, Alberta and Yukon Precincts were merged into one after the fall of Red Deer Station. Western is mostly underdeveloped and home to a large amount of Lane Hackers.

Eastern Precinct
Eastern Precinct encompasses the systems of Virginia, New Hampshire and Puerto Rico. These systems are mostly undeveloped and the Police HQ at Morgantown Station sees very little cases coming in from these three systems. As such, the Eastern Precinct is mostly neglected.
