The Brit-Cit Justice Department, officially referred to as Her Majesty’s Justice Department (HMJD), maintains law and order in and around Brit-Cit. It is led by the Chief Judiciary and answerable to Parliament. The judges of Brit-Cit share much in common with their counterparts in Mega-City One, having similar uniforms and close diplomatic ties. However, the two have many differences in operational procedure and administration. Brit-Cit judges are more lenient in their approach to crime and spend as much time buried in paperwork as they do patrolling the streets of their sector. The largest difference between the judges of Brit-Cit and Mega-City one is their salary – Brit-Cit judges are paid to uphold the law. When their shifts are over, the judges return to their flats and families, and may even take annual holidays. The Brit-Cit Justice Department is not immune to the privileges that come with wealth and ancestry and, with enough money, a judge can buy himself any promotion short of a seat on the Chief Judiciary.
