"I went to the Security Police, of course. They made an appearance of concern, but it was clear that they had no intention of exerting themselves."

The Security Police, or in contracted form, the Espos (or Boys-in-brown in Deal-slang), were the officers of the Corporate Sector Authority's Ground Forces responsible for law enforcement and the defense of the CSA's territories. The name Espo was also a slang term used by smugglers to refer to members of the organization.

Espos had a reputation for brutality throughout the Corporate Sector. They were distinguished by their brown uniforms and KZZ riot armor. Armed with riot guns, Merr-Sonn stun batons and transparisteel riot shields, they were known to have used brutal and even lethal force against rioters and other sorts of "disobedient" beings and sometimes severe interrogative tactics. They were also widely known for their use of the FC-1 flechette launcher. Espos also had access to heavier weaponry, such as mortars and walkers. Individuals who were convicted of political crimes within the Corporate Sector were sentenced to terms at a secret prison called Stars' End.
