Description

  • Name: International Crime Countermeasures Team CHERUBIM
  • Type: Police
  • Subfactions: Branches in each megaplex
  • Headquarters: Sydney, Australia

The private police agency CHERUBIM, headquartered in Australia, is an organization that coordinates across international borders in order to stop crime within each nation. Their activities include gathering and exchanging information about local crimes, sharing their dossiers on criminals at large, and advising local government on crime countermeasures. As an agency run with the support of each member nation, CHERUBIM maintains branches in every major city. In each such location, they work closely with local police, retain investigators on contract, and secure personnel with knowledge of the territory and populace.

Due to CHERUBIM's nature as a world-spanning organization, there are only a few people in each branch dispatched from headquarters, and cooperation with locals is essential. But when the local police are faced with criminal activity of a scale they are not equipped to handle, CHERUBIM'S massive databases - stored on their satellites, the "Four Thrones" - can prove a great boon to them. In addition, when the local police on occasion decide to turn a blind eye towards crime, CHERUBIM will step in to investigate it in their place.

CHERUBIM branches each consist of a General Police Bureau and a Special Crimes Bureau. Units contained in the latter often include a Financial Crimes Unit, Cybercrime Unit, Terrorism Unit, Corruption Unit, and Smuggling and Contraband Unit. Detectives operate with a high degree of independence and can secure the cooperation of local organizations on their own prerogative. The General Police Bureau always contains a Detective Support Unit, which engages in tracking down persons of interest, compiling information, profiling, observation and other such tasks in support of ongoing investigations. Any CHERUBIM agent can access the "Four Thrones" from their personal terminal, but sensitive information is subject to levels of classification, and thus it's more efficient for authorized members of the General Police Bureau to access it as needed.

As crime grows ever more complex with the advance of technology, CHERUBIM's key objective is to conduct research to enhance the capability of police agencies worldwide to investigate and solve it. The General Police Bureau has several units dedicated to this, such as the Human Resources Unit, Translation and Records Unit, and of course the Employee Education Unit. Techniques developed and refined by these units are entered into the database, improving the efficiency and efffectiveness of police agencies worldwide. CHERUBIM is a constantly evolving organization and a testament to the power of information in the modern world.
