- "I, Tam Posla, do hereby arrest you on the authority of the Milvayne Judiciary, in the name of all that is good."
- ―Tam Posla, to Chelli Aphra
The Milvayne Authority, also known as the Milvayne Judiciary, was a law enforcement agency that operated on Milvayne. Its most celebrated officer was Tam Posla. Posla's final case with them involved reports of kidnapping, forced servitude and surgical alteration. But after he travelled beyond his sanctions to bring justice to the pair, forcing his superior officer to take his badge. At some point, Chelli Aphra and 0-0-0 traveled to Milvayne. 0-0-0 almost immediately killed a border officer and more of the Milvayne Authority arrived to bring justice to them. Although they pinned the pair down, 0-0-0 self-destructed his and Aphra's ship to distract the cops.
- "Let justice be served! Protect the perfect!"
- ―The Milvayne Authority convicts three criminals
The Milvayne authority patrolled the upper levels of Milvayne's vast megacity. Any citizen caught committing a crime was pursued and apprehended by the Milvayne authority officers. They were then convicted of their crime and thrown into the undercity where other convicts were amassed in their millions. The Milvayne authority also threw over droids that were deemed "defective". This was categorized by features as insignificant as a bit of rust. They used drones to carry droids over the ledge.
- "Freeze lawbreaker!"
"Oh no. It's the law."
- ―The Milvayne Authority pursues Chelli Aphra
At some point, Tam Posla, the Milvayne Authority's most celebrated officer, began investigating reports of kidnapping, forced servitude and surgical alteration. The series of crimes were thought to have been carried out by two visitors, known as "Roofoo" and "Sawkee". The two individuals were infact the rogue surgeon Doctor Cornelius Evazan and the Aqualish thug Ponda Baba. Evazan was eventually nicknamed the "Mutilator of Milvayne" for the crimes he had committed. Posla was eventually taken off the case by the his superior officer but learned of a similar string of crimes on the moon of Jedha. Determined to bring justice to them, Posla went to Jedha and his superior officer took his badge, telling him he had no sanction. Posla however was already too attached to the case and became a bounty hunter in order to chase the pair.
Although no longer a part of the law enforcement agency, Posla at one point declared Chelli Aphra under arrest on the authority of the "Milvayne Judiciary", another name for the Milvayne Authority, shortly before his untimely death. Following Posla's murder, Chelli Aphra and the assassin droid 0-0-0 traveled to Milvayne on Posla's ship in search of his personal cyberneticist, Rajam Nuss.
Upon arriving at Milvayne, the spaceports border officer asked for Aphra and 0-0-0's I.D.s and authorization. 0-0-0 tortured him into opening the gate for them and killed him. In response to this, more of the Milvayne Authority were quick to intercept Aphra and 0-0-0. The pair were then pinned down by the Milvayne authority officers on their speeders and 0-0-0 decided to self-destruct Posla's ship as a distraction. This worked, and the Milvayne Authority officers left the pair to get away.
Later on, Aphra and 0-0-0 were bribing a train driver for transport to South District Seven when 0-0-0 threatened his life. The driver held them at blaster point and contacted the Informahub about 0-0-0. Subsequently, several Milvayne Authority drones came and threw 0-0-0 into the undercity of Milvayne. Aphra was forced to jump down in order to stay with him. Later, the live feed broadcasting from 0-0-0's eye's was shown before the citizens of Milvayne. Evazan, the man in control of the broadcasting, prompted them to assist the Milvayne Authority in capturing the droid and Aphra. As a result, many money craving residents made inaccurate claims to the Authority in hopes of securing a reward. Tam Posla, who was hunting the pair, contacted his former affiliates and led some of them to Aphra and 0-0-0, who were traveling on a bloatbarge across the undercity. Vulaada Klam, who was traveling with the pair, incapacitated them, hoping to claim the reward for them.
