The UFPD was originally a Sheriff's Office founded in 1892 along with the town of Union Falls. After a massive economic boom and rapid expansion of the town into a metropolis in the latter half of the 20th century, it was reorganized into a metropolitan police department.
During the Type-III Awakening Incident, the UFPD sustained heavy casualties while attempting to restore order to the city as a single rogue ravaged its streets. It is because of the city's high population of wizards in both its general population and on its police force that the police had enough magical firepower to subdue the metahuman threat and restore order.
The UFPD underwent a second expansion around the turn of the century, to address Union Falls' rapid growth, rebuilding and redevelopment into one of America's largest cities. The police force was upgraded with a large influx of new equipment and personnel in 2010, increasing its size and range of operations significantly.
Modern day Edit
In 2028, the UFPD investigated numerous instances of violent crime, drug smuggling and various illegal activities of the Skull Crushers gang. One of the lead investigators on the ongoing case was Siegfried Peters, who was later accosted by Crusher gang members and assaulted along with his brother, Ziggy Peters. Ziggy was killed by the gang members and Peters was nearly as well, but he underwent a metahuman activation, which saved his life. United Liberators Coalition Liberators-830 agents Adam Creel and Jeremy Hill drove the Crushers off, and rescued Peters.
Peters left the force to join the ULC shortly afterwards, deciding to make use of his newfound abilities.
In January 2029 The UFPD was the first responder to the 2029 Union City terror incident and reported the sighting of Voltage to the United Liberators Coalition. They provided support in the background during the conflict between the metahuman and Coalition agents, and oversaw security and damage control in the aftermath.
Throughout January to May 2029, the UFPD oversaw a continuing war, with the aid of the Coalition, against the numerous gangs of South Side district.
