Federal Special Police Division

Between January 1978 and January 1988, the number of reported conflicts between paranormals increased by over four hundred percent. The number of innocent bystanders injured in these conflicts skyrocketed, as did the property damage caused by these conflicts.

In response to this, one of the last actions President Reagan took while in office was to create the Federal Special Police Division of the FBI (or "FSPD"), sometimes called "Supercops".

The FSPD was intended to deal with paranormal villains that local authorities were unable to handle, to capture them prior to trial, and to ensure that the criminals served their sentences. In order to carry out this mission, the FSPD had access to experimental and military-class weaponry, state-of-the-art confinement equipment, and some of the finest agents in the country. From WARDEN and TACSEC armor to the 26-wheel FSPD Containment Vehicles, the FSPD was provided with some of the most advanced -- and most expensive -- crime-fighting equipment available.

However, the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York caused a shift in political priorities. Funds originally allocated to the PSPD were diverted to the newly created Department Of Homeland Security, and to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

In 2005, the FSPD was absorbed into the Department Of Homeland Security. The agency was renamed the Paranormal Terrorist Response Center (PTRC).

Most former FPSD installations were decommissioned: only New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Los Angeles maintain PTRC field offices, and those locations shifted from focusing on the capture and incarceration of paranormals to providing support for state and local law enforcement in those agencies' response to paranormal terrorist attacks.
