The New Mombasa Police Department (or NMPD) was the primary Law Enforcement Agency of New Mombasa, Kenya [2].

The NMPD was also charged with operating in Old Mombasa, in addition to their normal routines in the industrialized metropolis of New Mombasa. When New Mombasa was attacked by the Covenant Empire during the Battle of Earth, they assisted the UNSCDF in fending off the invasion force.[3] The NMPD Headquarters was located at the Tanaga district of New Mombasa. At the time of the Covenant invasion they were under the command of Commissioner Kinsler, a highly corrupt official who used them as his private army. While some officers were loyal to Kinsler, there were also many officers who resented him.[4]

Equipment

NMPD officers defending the ONI Alpha Site.

The standard kit for the NMPD officer is an all black uniform, consisting of a utility uniform, body armor, and a modified CH252 Helmet with a blast-visor. Their armament includes weapons such as the MA5C ICWS Assault Rifle, M90A Shotgun and the M7/Caseless Submachine Gun. NMPD SWAT teams often utilized flashbang grenades.

In addition to the hundreds of modified HuCiv Genet police vehicles patrolling the streets, the New Mombasa Police Department also maintains a fleet of modified D77H-TCI Pelican Dropships in Police livery. Notable additions include a high speed camera on the bow of the dropship, and a rescue cable at the rear of the troop bay. These dropships can be armed with the AIE-486H Heavy Machine Gun in the troop bay.[5]

The NMPD also uses the city's Surveillance Grid and the Superintendent's monitoring cameras to control the city's populace. They also have full control over the Superintendent, and are able to shut it down or turn it on from their headquarters.

History

Battle of Mombasa

During the Covenant invasion of Mombasa, the NMPD controlled the evacuation of the city. Beside the city's Colonial Militia and several Marines from the 17th Marine Regiment, they were the only fighting force in Mombasa until the arrival of the 405th and other Marine reinforcements. During the evacuation, propaganda was constantly being announced to the citizens, while the Communications Duty Officer was in contact with the UNSC Navy and the ONI.[4] While operational during the first hours of the battle, the NMPD Headquarters was lost to the Covenant later in the day.[1]

During the battle, Commissioner Kinsler was entirely unconcerned of the civilian populace, only caring about his personal safety. Later, Kinsler remote-activated the Superintendent's data center's fire containment systems which flooded sublevel 9 with argon, killing Dr. Endesha. He also had the AI deactivated, and sent a team of officers into the data center, to retrieve the data the Superintendent had collected. Due to the efforts of Mike Branley and Sadie Endesha, the Superintendent was restarted. After boarding his private train and ordering his loyal officers to fire upon the crowd, Kinsler was killed when the Superintendent opened the doors, allowing the angry mob to tear him apart.[4]

Later in the day, all of the NMPD forces were called to the Marines' rally point at the entrance to the ONI Alpha Site. They defended the facility with the UNSC Marines, only to be forced to fall back and eventually destroy the building in order to prevent ONI's data from falling into enemy hands. Later, the team in the data center failed in their mission, as all of them were killed by the Covenant in the facility, except for one officer who was eventually killed when he attacked an ODST.[5]

Trivia

  • In Halo 3: ODST the officers are SEVERELY weak with only a burst from an assault rifle is sufficient enough to kill them.
  • Section 14 is likely a subdivision of the NMPD, as it acts as a policing force in New Mombasa, monitoring most of the harbor traffic in the docks during daytime.[6]
  • The NMPD Sergeant who commands the defense of the ONI building is voiced by Pete Stacker who also voices GySgt. Stacker and Cpt. Keyes.
  • The NMPD's riot gear seems to match those used by the Civilian Security Force officers in the book Halo: Contact Harvest.
  • The seal of the NMPD bears the same emblem used to represent the Blue Team in Halo's multiplayer system from Halo: Combat Evolved to Halo 2.
  • So far there are two known models for the NMPD officers in Halo 3: ODST. The normal uniform with the blast visor, though comes in many colors like black, gray, white, or a mixture, and the special sergeant model at the ONI Alpha Site.
