Until about eleven years ago, the WCPD was corrupt to the core. It was run by a womanising and money-grabbing man named Edward De'jaques, who was about as criminal as the criminals he claimed to be catching - though in reality as long as you paid him enough, you never got caught. Police brutality and accepting bribes was commonplace.

Katy Lockhart joined the force at the age of eighteen, after having experienced the corruption of the force first hand, and decided to do something about it. She and her sister, Naia Lockhart had been orphaned when they were still in their single digit years, and lived with a benevolent old woman in the slums of Wing City with a collection of other children for the majority of their childhood.

Both Lockhart sisters joined the force, Naia a few years later as she was three years the junior, and fought tooth and nail against the corruption. Midway through their forcing their way up through the ranks, a childhood friend of theirs contacted Naia again - Dannyl Jeanson, one of those who had lived in the old woman's orphanage as well. He persuaded her that their efforts were futile, and the best way to combat the WCPD's corruption was to undermine the entire organisation. Using his looks and charm, he drew Naia away from the force and into crime.

In the climax to the little saga, Katy eventually reached - through careful lies and manipulations of De'jaque's expectations - the position of Commander of the force, and from there she cracked down on the reigns hard. From her position, she brought Edward down, and reformed the force, though rather than taking his place as the chief, she instead recommended a long-time senior officer for the position, Harold Miller, who she knew well and had more experience on the high-up than her. With the WCPD now actually doing good, one might have expected Dannyl to stop crusading against it - but alas, no, he continues to wage psychological warfare on the force, attacking both officers and those close to them.

Katy and Miller later expanded the force to include a Special Operations Department, the SOD, which works both in Wing City and outside of it to track down the most serious villains. The WCPD has had frequent contact with the SCD (Special Cases Department, based in the US) and works with them regularly via their contact in Wing City, Carter Fleetham.

Miller recently handed the reigns of the force over to one Casey Delancy after Lockhart once more declined the position after returning from a long period of leave.

While at present there is not a clearly defined WCPD structure in the writer's head, they operate much like any normal police force - with the exception of heavier fire-power, anti-magic/metahuman units and magical/metahuman members. The SOD are something like a localised FBI. A

As well as the SOD, there is a further specialised branch of the WCPD dealing with non-humanoid citizens - the Department of Integration.

MisterMars wrote:They're not a policing agency in that they go chasing down every murderer and thief, but they do work in hand with the police involving crimes that occur between humans and non-humans. The DoI boasts a plethora of experts on various species and deities to help the WCPD detectives resolves crimes that would otherwise baffle your typical officer.

If the WCPD already doesn't have non-humans working for them, the DoI is also jointly in charge of those.

But the main purpose of the DoI is to manage all human vs. non-human relations, including, but not limited to:

Integration and adjustment
DoI provides free services to people human and non who are new to Wing City and not accustomed to sharing their lives with one another. The adheres to a strict policy of tolerance, and requires citizens to take a series of classes to get themselves adjusted to the fact they might be sharing a pint with a troll or a giant talking wolf at any given moment.
They also offer counseling and psychiatric sessions, headed by one Ezra Kohlberg. Those who are having trouble adjusting or have been in violation of strict interspecies tolerance laws have to attend counseling and get examined before their offense is rectifying. Again, if a non-human is found guilty of a crime through the WCPD, cooperation with police and the Department can clear their record of the incident.

Registering and keeping track of interspecies partnerships
You a werewolf in love with a selkie and want to get hitched? You get your marriage license verified by the Department. Wanna make a baby? Okay, but you need to register your prospective child with the Department. Rampant hybrid making is a problem in Wing City, and the Department of Integration wants to keep track of them all, better safe than sorry.
Lovers quarrel stemming from your differences? Again, couples counseling is provided pro-bono!

The Homnivore Registry: (subject to change until I can find a fancy name for human-eater)
Hey, we understand, sometimes you just can't help the fact your species has been hard-wired to prey on the naked ape. And we're not going to judge you for that.
Buuuuut, we do have rules and regulations you have to follow before you chow down, buddy.
-One, you have to put your information on a registry (kind of like the sex offender registry) so that the Department can keep tabs on you if you go human-noshing outside of regulation. It makes it easier for the WCPD to track you down in human murders with pieces missing, if you know what I mean.
-Two, there are STRICT rules concerning when and where you can partake of your long pig:
(I'm still working on these, but I know I want to allow for predatory creatures to, within their rights, act as vigilante justice. WCPD has a crime problem as is, what with the seemingly neverending stream of mass murderers and all-around douchebags. If a criminal is causing physical harm to another person, they no longer apply as 'off-limits' and are free to be snarfed up. Something like that. I jokingly call it the Omnomnom Ordinance)
-Three. Which is where cooperation with the WCPD would be most needed, the homnivores are allowed to have their pick of criminals on Death Row [INSERT by Parabola: post-death] (or the select few weirdos that want to go out that way). Practically hassle-free meal taking should be incentive enough to get any human-eater to follow the rules.

Buuuut, as we know many of them won't, special agents within the DoI work with WCPD to deal with offenders. [INSERT by Parabola: An unauthorised eating of a human(oid) individual is treated as murder, with all the applicable consequences.]


Of course, most homnivores get around all these rules by preying on anything but humans. The Registry only deals with human-related things.


Finally, the branch related to the policing of the police - any and all investigations revolving around WCPD members - the Special Investigation Branch.

Cloasse wrote:This branch of the WCPD focuses mostly on crimes committed by or against police or military personnel from the area. Note that crimes committed by or against police and military personnel who originate from or are under orders from out with the Wing City area are not looked into by this branch.

This branch has a Director, one who co-ordinates and deals with all of the four teams of agents on personal levels. Each team is made up of five people.

The only named team at this current time is as follows:

Edan Cephas; Lead Agent
Romanae Retna, Tom Davids; Senior Field Agents
James Isaacs; Field Agent (and ICT co-ordinator)
Benjamin Howards; Probationary Field Agent

The above posts go from most influential to least influential. As a Probationary Field Agent, Benjamin Howards must go through two years of undisrupted service to the SIB before he can be classed as a fully qualified Field Agent. His main objectives are to learn and assist.

Directly opposing this is Edan Cephas. He has been an SIB Agent for over ten years and, as such, has climbed through the posts before being offered his own team. He makes the major decisions and answers only to the Director of the SIB, Mordecai Tavi.

Romanae Retna and Tom Davids are both Senior Field Agents. They have both been with the SIB for six years, although Davids originally started on a different team and was transferred when Cephas took over his own team four years prior.

James Isaacs has been at the SIB for three years, upon request of Director Tavi. He is mainly found in the office as opposed to on-field, and generally shares a technician’s lab with forensic analyst with Daniel Jane when he is not in the open plan office above.

As well as Daniel Jane, Iante Clowes is also one of the two in-house analysts to reside in the SIB offices. Both he and Jane are younger than the agents, and neither are trained to deal with on-field situations, although both are aware of how to load, fire and maintain a firearm as per theoretical training that occurred in their line of work.
