The police are a series of forces that serve as a type of security group to ensure laws and rules are obeyed, and that order and peace is the norm on a planet, or in space under a planet's jurisdiction. Police officers also tend to have authority to take criminal suspects in for questioning, conduct investigations into criminal activities, and arrest those who break the law. Police are often identified by uniform.

Police forces keep extensive records on various individuals that are suspected to be or are criminals. (DS9: "Heart of Stone", et al.)

It is common in some localities to use the term constable to refer to individual police officers, and deputy to designate lower-ranking police personnel. (DS9: "Emissary", et al.)

On Starfleet vessels, starbases and other installations, the security division is normally in charge of police activities as part of their duties. One exception is the use of Bajoran officers on Deep Space 9, under the command of Constable Odo. (DS9: "Emissary", et al.)

The police were mentioned in an article in the Q Continuum magazine The New. (VOY: "Death Wish")
