The Native Protection Agency, or NPA, was Manticoran law enforcement agency on Medusa - resposible for protection of the Medusans. The Agency was subordinated to the Resident Commissioner for Planetary Affairs. (HH1)

Duties Edit

NPA was the main police organization on Medusa, in fact, responsible for internal security there. Before 1900 PD, instead of the Royal Manticoran Navy, the Agency provided flight control around the planet, as well as customs service.

Operations Edit

In 1900 PD, the NPA was able to free up more manpower, once the inspection teams from the HMS Fearless were able to come down to Medusa, and started to patrol the Outback region.

The NPA tried to raid a drug lab in the Mossyback region. The lab self-destruct system was activated and the strike team was decimated. [1]
