View Full Version : The Police

So far we've seen every branch of the world government's peacekeeping forces in a fair amount of detail. Cipher Pol, The Marines, The Shichibukai and even bounty hunters to some extent.

But we have yet to see much of the Police. Do you think they'l play a part in the story? should they play a part in the story?

I think that there's a real oppurtunity there for some bad ass villain. Easily on par with the admirals. A corrupt cop or or an "absolute justice" counterpart to akainu would be great.

Lafitte is a policeman. Cipher Pol are also police agents, however they are special.

It's kinda hard to rationalise in the One Piece 'verse. Most of the world lives on islands you can walk across in under a day, so the marines act as pretty much every law enforcement position necessary, at least with regards to the world government. There are probably individual police forces on some of the bigger islands or as part of independent kingdoms but I get the impression the marines are the whole of the WGs public law enforcement power.

What functions would a police force cover that we haven't already seen the marines carrying out?
