The law enforcement within APB is carried out through the Enforcers, a collective of private polices forces, “special forces” units, and “guns for hire.” Though many players will abide by a strict code of conduct while playing as an Enforcer, they are not limited by what they can do and many will act with extreme prejudice only distinguishing themselves from a Criminal by the fact that they carry a badge. The primary objective of the Enforcers is to prevent, respond to, stop, and contain criminal activity at any cost within the city of San Paro.
A third enforcer organization was planned called SPPD. It is unknown if the organization, or any of the characters from it, will return in APB:R. SPPD was supposed to be based in the unfinished midtown district. (Please note that the clan SPPD should not be confused with the planned SPPD NPC organization).
The concept of Enforcers was created by Mayor Jane Derren, a hard-line Conservative Unionist and San Paro's youngest ever mayor. It was codified in the CSA (the City Security Act) that she put in place. You can read all thirty-six pages of this momentous document down at City Hall - enshrined in an armored glass case - but what it boils down to is that licensed civilians have the right to bear arms and to act as vigilantes in support of the law.
Like the other recruits, you are as likely to have come from the military or law enforcement as from the general citizenry. You aren't a cop: you are part of a movement that has been collectively dubbed 'Enforcement'. After rigorous training, you now work with one of several groups who receive information and dispatches from the CSA facility in Fourche Bank - organizations like the Prentiss Tigers, or the Praetorians. They'll provide your assignments, coordinating their through the city-wide Dispatch Net.
You respond to flash points of crimes in progress, and complete vital Enforcer operations, keeping the city under tight control. Rewards are paid automatically. Vehicles, weapons and equipment are at your disposal, but as a private citizen, these must be purchased from your own funds. How you choose to look is your own affair. At all times, you must be ready to use lethal or non-lethal force against Criminal insurgency, as authorized in the terms of your license.
Your authority come straight from the Mayor herself
San Paro is at war. Protect your city.
