The Thin Black Line
While the letters in this corporation’s name are not officially an abbreviation, NYPD, Inc. still values the reputation of the organization from which it was born when the New York City Police Department was privatized in 2050. The corp now provides security and law enforcement services to Manhattan and parts of New York and Jersey City, supplementing Lone Star forces in those areas.
The company is unique among the MDC corporations in that it has no physical central headquarters. The company is housed in over a hundred different buildings around Manhattan and New York City. Its main headquarters is entirely in the Matrix, in a node sculpted as a grand building in the shape of an NYPD, Inc. badge logo. Most of the administrative personnel telecommute.
NYPD, Inc. employees maintain a friendly and outgoing demeanor. The company’s mission statement includes the phrase, “enforce the laws, keep the peace, reduce fear, and create a safe environment.” Employees, all along the chain of command, work to keep themselves worthy of the title, New York’s Finest.
