Special Affairs for Regulations and Order
The Special Affairs for Regulations and Order (SARO) unit is a special forces group within the Directive Enforcement Department (DED) . The SARO group is one of the toughest police units in New Eden and is notorious for its brutal yet efficient methods.
SARO is mainly used for hostage situations, assaults on heavily-armed pirate havens, dealing with large-scale criminal activity and similar tasks where force is more useful than finesse.
A Special Affairs for Regulations and Order (SARO) ship was destroyed by the terrorist Aki Onikori (AKA "Fiend") some time around YC103. This was an embarrassing incident for SARO and, as a result, the Fiend is one of SARO's most wanted criminals.
