ShinRa Security Forces
Current: ShinRa Public Safety Department
Referred to as: ShinRa Peacekeeping Troops, Paramilitary, ShinRa Army or ShinRa Security Forces (SSF). They are the official armed forces of ShinRa Electric Power Company.
It is the duty of members of the Paramilitary to protect Shinra and it's assets from terror threats, war and other entities that would seek to damage the company and its holdings. The Shin-Ra Public Safety Department falls under the Department of Public Safety Maintenance & Peace Preservation, which is overseen by Director Heidegger. It works in conjunction with all other departments within Shinra as an all-purpose military powerhouse, picking up the slack and charging into battle with courage and determination.

Both branches are capable of doing the tasks of the other, however, the responsiblities are divided to ensure the duties of the Shin-Ra Public Safety officer can be fully optimized. Commissioned Officers are responsible for the administrative and internal operations of the Shin-Ra Public Safety Department as well as being involved in the welfare of the military personnels’ progression and contribution to the Shin-Ra’s infrastructure. Field Officers focused on enemy engagement and hands-on approach when training cadets and MPs under them. They are rarely at the tower and commonly out and about on the upperplate or the perimeters of the prison facility.

Senior Non-Commissioned Officers [SNCOs]:
SNCOs are the Field Officers of the Paramilitary. They answer directly to the VCC, CC, or XO's. Their ranks are capped at SGM [and receive their R6 rewards early]. Duties include organizing and conducting patrols, directing squad-sized engagements, training enlisted members, and setting strong examples of leadership within the ranks.
Non-Commissioned Officers [NCOs]:
NCOs are the experienced members of the Paramilitary. They answer directly to the VCC or CC. Duties include organizing and conducting patrols, training enlisted members, and setting strong examples of leadership within the ranks.
Additionally, at Sergeant, MPs have the choice to be trained as an officer, working mainly in the background to ensure a smooth running of the military, or continue on the Enlisted Track and primarily be in the field which is advancing to SNCO. Officer Training can be undertaken at any time, and upon passing to the satisfaction of a majority of commissioned officers, will receive a promotion to straight to 2nd Lieutenant. Exams will be held once the MP reaches the rank of Sergeant First Class and after having served one and a half months, can approach an officer to take the exams.
Duties of Enlisted MPs include organizing and conducting patrols, running ID scans, taking post on the Plate to provide a Shin-Ra presence among the civilian populace and maintain order, to stand watch over prisoners, escorting VIPs, creating civilian IDs, as well as any other tasks directed by the Chain of Command. They are also required to attend regular training and sparring sessions to both learn and maintain their skills. Enlisted MPs answer to the NCOs.
The duties of cadets include learning the Paramilitary handbook, demonstrating a knowledge of the rules and regulations of the Paramilitary and attending trainings on combat, patrol duty, ID creation, and division opportunities. The cadet phase ends with the successful completion of the Shin-Ra Cadet Test after a mandatory seven day period. Cadets who fail the test twice are released.
In the absence of command [whether the player playing the officer char is ooc or afk] and during a crisis, all MPs and cadets must follow orders of the next ranking personnel should they give an order ie; SOLDIER, Investigative Department [Turks] etc.
