Offical Seal of the UECU

The UECU or Union of Everett Crisis Unit or simply Crisis Unit is a Federal government agency under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security in the Union of Everett that deals with all forms of law enforcement activity and national security activity within the nation's jurisdiction. The UECU is a paramilitary/Federal law enforcement agency with higher command authority than other federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, NAF or police, equal authority with the military and National Security Agency and less authority than the Militant Forces, CIA and Department of Defense. The agency can deal with issues ranging from fugitive retrieval, SWAT operations, hostage crises, counter terrorism, homeland security operations, riot control and disaster operations but also is legally able to perform standard police duties such as traffic patrol, arrests, high speed pursuits and parking tickets and any local, county or state police duties. The UECU maintains a status of full national territorial jurisdiction.

"CU" meaning Crisis Unit, the number is the agent's badge number and "NY" being state division. Agents may wear any clothing they like but military vests, bullet proof vests, black tactical pants and any type of white or black shirt is recommended. Bullet proof vests are recommended off duty and agents must always be armed and have a cell phone or police/military radio with them at all times. Agents must keep medical gear, hazard gear and SWAT/riot gear in their vehicles. The standard and recommended uniform for an on duty agent consists of black tactical cargo pants with sneaker/boot variants and a white or black shirt of any kind. Under or over the shirt should be a level III dragonscale bullet proof vest. Along with the vest should be molle pouches for carrying ammunition or supplies with their badge and a name tag on the upper left corner of the chest like any law enforcement officer. A belt should be worn which should carry a firearm on either side of the hips or on both, an extendable baton, one set of handcuffs with several ziptie cuffs or up to two sets of cuffs, a flashlight, handgun magazine pouches and a law enforcement radio and scanner. A taser can optionally be worn on a thigh holster. On the back of the vest should be a submachine gun of choice, holstered or worn with a gun strap.


Agents are allowed to use any weapons they want. UECU are allowed to possess grenade lauching weapons, anti-tank weapons, support machine guns and rocket launchers such as the M72 LAW.
