The Broker State Police Department (BSPD) is the law enforcement agency responsible for the state of Broker. Broker, unlike other states, does not have government-owned local level law enforcement agencies; and only has the BSPD. Other local offices, such as sheriffs departments in counties, have priority duties in other fields other than law enforcement. They must be accredited and approved by the BSPD to be able to enforce state criminal law.

The Broker State Legislature established the BSPD in 1948, succeeding the various county and local police agencies after it was determined that one unified organization would be more effective. Governor Franklin C. Todd signed the legislation. The BSPD has over 14,000 employees, of which 11,000 are law enforcers.

Organization

One of the BSPD's duties includes governor protection. The BSPD is led by the Commissioner, who is appointed by the Governor of Broker. The Deputy Commissioner is also appointed by the Governor and the Assistant Commissioners are appointed by the Commissioner.

SWAT's duties include: performing hostage rescues and counter-terrorism operations; serving high risk arrest and search warrants; subduing barricaded suspects; and engaging heavily-armed criminals.
    • Auxiliary Police - The Auxiliary Police is a division of volunteer officers who primarily patrol on foot, in police cars, and on bicycles to increase the public's perception of police "omnipresence" and to assist as the eyes and ears of the BSPD. These reserve officers are usually unarmed.
    • Aviation Unit - The Aviation Unit uses rotary-wing aircraft, fixed-wing aircraft, nonrigid-wing aircraft and lighter-than-air aircraft in its police support operations. The Unit's aircraft are used for traffic control, ground support, search and rescue, high-speed car pursuits, observation, air patrol and control of large-scale public order incidents. The Unit is also responsible for transporting the SWAT platoon and other specialized units.
    • K-9 Unit - The K-9 Unit utilizes dogs to support officers in their daily work. The most commonly used canine, like in other jurisdictions, is the German Shepherd. The deliberate killing a police canine is seen as murder of a law enforcer in the Broker Penal Code, meaning, if convicted, criminals will most likely be sentenced to death. The Unit is used for search-and-rescue, drug- and explosive detection, accelerant detection at arson sites and also play a large role in combating civil disobedience or public disorder along with the Riot & Civil Order Platoon.
    • Riot & Civil Order Platoon - R&COP is the dedicated riot police platoon of the BSPD. Although any officer can be called upon to respond to riot control, the R&COP team specializes in the field and is usually deployed to major events before signs of public disorder. The platoon is deployed during natural disasters to stop looting and is also used for large-scale searches of populated areas.
  • Broker Bureau of Investigation - The BBI is the equivalent of a Detective Bureau in other jurisdiction, as well as the state-level equivalent of the NATIONAL JUSTICE AGENCY.

Plainclothes officers are used which usually investigate both criminal and civil cases involving the state and/or multiple jurisdictions (such as crossing over county or city lines).
    • Office of the Director - The Director of the BBI is the equivalent of an Assistant Commissioner.
    • Homicide Division - The Homicide Division investigates anything relating to suspected deliberate killings.
    • Cold Case Office - The Cold Case Office sifts through old cases closed by other divisions of the BBI and run their own investigations to attempt to solve them. Detectives being punished or awaiting disciplinary action are usually reassigned to the Cold Case Office, however, some, usually aging detectives have requested a transfer.
    • Robbery-Burglary Division - The RBD investigates anything related to burglary/robbery or attempted burglary/robbery.
    • Commercial Crimes Division - The CCD investigates all forgery and fraud related white-collar crimes.
    • Vice and Special Investigations Division - Also only known as Vice, investigates prostitution, drug-related, and sex-related crimes, and is the main "hoodlum" unit, specializing in gang violence.
    • Major Case Squad - The Major Case Squad is the "primo" assignment of sorts for BBI detectives. The MCS handles major bank robberies, murders involving a large amount of people, human trafficking, and anything deemed "major."
    • Crime Scene Investigation Unit & Crime Lab - The CSI unit is a support unit of sorts for the entirety of the BBI. After detectives have done their initial sweep of the crime scene, the CSI group does a much more thorough investigation of the scene. The Crime Lab, located at major police stations, are also operated by the CSI unit, and are manned by scientists and other specialized personnel.
