The Judicial Forces were the official police force of both the Star Imperium and the United Planets. They enforced the laws of the central government across the known universe. They also were responsible for the collection of taxes levied by the central regime on Alfheim. They also appointed the judges of the courts of the Imperium (except for the Council of Twelve, which served as an intergalactic supreme court). Under the United Planets, however, the United Planets Assembly appointed judges.
The Judicial Forces were headed by three members of the Council of Ministers.
Judicial Forces rely on old-style classes of spaceships such as Rok-class asteroid ships, Kill Kroozers, and Fighta-Bommas. They have few Imperial-class Star Destroyers or TIE fighters and virtually no Executor-class Super Star Destroyers.
