Lone Star Security Services (or LSSS), headquartered in Austin, Texas, CAS, is one of the more prominent public security companies in North America. It has contracts of municipal policing from Corpus Christi to Seattle. Lone Star operates directly in the CAS and the UCAS. It holds 62% of all security contracts in the UCAS. The percentage is even higher in the CAS, due to its public relations image as a reincarnation of the Texas Rangers. The corporation also runs many prisons for the UCAS and CAS federal governments. A subsidiary of Lone Star, Gendarmerie, is Quebec’s main provider of law enforcement, border patrol, and customs. LSSS also deals with the private sector, providing Matrix, magical, or conventional security to corporations and individuals. It also has non-security concerns, such as selling insurance or research. In most parts of North America, Lone Star thought to be synonymous with “the law”, “the cops”, or “the police”, even though it remains, at its heart, a corporation. The current CEO is Theodore W.D. Winslow.
In each city for which Lone Star has a contract, the head of Lone Star in the region is the Chief of Police. Underneath the Chief is a Deputy Chief at each headquarters in the city. Subordinate to the Deputy Chief are the Divisional Chiefs. There is one Divisional Chief per Division per HQ. Divisions are either part of the Enforcement Arm or the Corporate Arm. The head of each police precinct is a Captain. The head of a division at a police precinct is a Chief Lieutenant. Each department of a division at a precinct will have one Lieutenant and numerous Sergeants.
