PostSubject: The Police   Mon Nov 26, 2012 11:23 pm

The Police in D.C. often appear to be better at escorting politicians and world leaders from airports to hotels to convention centers to the White House and back again, than actually curbing the rampant drug and crime problems that plague the city. Most officers try to do their best, but local government leadership has proven to be particularly inept and prone to corruption, and no body can function better than its head. Of course the force itself is no stranger to corruption and there are those officers who are willing to sell their authority to the highest bidder, and there are plenty of shady entities, both supernatural and mundane, who are more than willing to take advantage of this weakness.

Plenty of police officers have seen more than their fair share of strange occurrences and unsolved mysteries, but in most crime investigations anything outside the normal accepted realm of reality is not even considered as a viable option to pursue. Sometimes it requires a lot of mental hoop-jumping to explain away an occurrence that has no naturalistic explanation, but most find a way. For those few who are willing to listen to their better instincts and admit that there may be more to the world than meets the eye life becomes even darker and more terrifying than it is for the average cop.

The fact that that magical world is for the most part hidden from them, it is even more difficult for the police to determine how the good guys are in a supernatural conflict, and they certainly don’t tolerate perceived vigilantism, so they can often prove to be a much of an obstacle for White Council and others acting on humanity’s behalf, as they are for the crime lords and paranormal criminals that threaten the mortal world.
