Imperial Security Bureau
|Imperial Security Bureau|
|Headquarters||Byden ISB Complex, Imperial Centre|
The Imperial Security Bureau, commonly abbreviated to ISB or the Bureau, is the primary security enforcement organization in the Galactic Empire. It is one of three bureaus under Imperial Intelligence.
The ISB is responsible for internal security. The ISB stations agents within every unit and department of the Empire. Their roles include, among other things, policing, counter-terrorism, investigation, apprehension, communication monitoring, surveillance, interrogation, Order-wide human resource management, re-education, adjudication and protocol enforcement. The Bureau maintains the ability to monitor all Imperial communication channels, providing additional security and an accessible means of contact for all Imperial citizens to voice their concerns about the security of their military unit, or civilian group for the benefit of the Empire.

The Director is the head of the ISB. He reports directly to the Grand Vizier and the Imperial Throne. The Deputy Director is responsible for leading the ISB in the absence of the Director.
The Chief of Enforcement works alongside Imperial Intelligence, bounty hunters, and planetary governments to assist the Bureau in the apprehension of Imperial lawbreakers. The Prime Adjudicator is the chief investigator of all high crimes. They both report to the Deputy Director
ISB Sector Liaisons have full jurisdiction and control over all Bureau operations within their sectors; they work alongside and with the Intelligence Officers assigned to their sectors. Sector Liaisons report to the Deputy Director. The Intelligence Officers are assigned to a specific over sector and provide accurate intelligence for military officers that are a part of their sector command, but they are required to report to Imperial Intelligence.
The Chief of Surveillance works alongside Imperial Intelligence as well, gathering and maintaining an immaculate record of all Imperials. It is their duty to identify potential threats before they have the opportunity to do damage to the Empire. This is done through multiple strategies, including but not limited to covert agents throughout the Empire, maintenance of extensive databases, and analyzing internal intelligence information.
In a text-book case, Surveillance would detect a security threat, and relay the information to Enforcement who would direct the operation to arrest the perpetrator. Adjudication would build the evidence for a case, and try the individual on the charges. Re-education would put them into the appropriate education facility where they would serve out their term. The Directorate would monitor this process.
A New Era
Coinciding with the transfer of Director von Bianchi to focus on his duties as Dark Lord of the Sith and act as Grand Moff of the Corporate Oversector and Sith Worlds, Executor Seele announced his retirement after a long and illustrious career. In tribute, as his first order of business, newly-appointed Director Daniel Ascarion announced the formation of the newest expansion of ISB with the opening of the Seele Centre for Security and Legal Training, Improvement, and Professionalism.
This sprawling campus offers new and veteran agents alike the opportunity to become versed in professionalism, with a goal that one day all ISB agents will be at a level that would not only meet the former Executors standards, but even exceed them. This lofty goal is the driving force behind the Centre's large budget and long list of staff.
