Space police are present in every civilized system and sector. Spacers commonly refer to them as “space cops”  or “scops”. Depending on the local laws and demeanor, they may be a blessing or a curse to Spacers, and their capabilities may vary widely from a peace-keeping force to a para-military defense force, or a secret police gestapo with teams of Burners.

Scop detectives are frequently Espers, for their ability to track and “read” suspects is indispensable.
