Planejammer Campaign Setting
The highest level of police force in the DragonEmpire. EmperorMezzenbone added the ISPD, reducing the authority of the ImperialPolice greatly, but the old police force is still active. The creation of the ISPD removed some of the status from the ImperialPolice, but none of the workload.
Hampered during three thousand years of chaotic emperors, the ImperialPolice has turned into a rather haphazard organization, with insecure funding and frequent turnover. The upside to this is that successful officers get a very free reign to persue investigations in any way they like.
WatchDetectives trained by the ImperialPolice still hold the best track reckord for crimefighting in the empire.
