The Club Penguin Police Department, also abbreviated as the CPPD, is the police agency responsible for law and order in Club Penguin. They have a head quarters known as the Police Station. One side of the station includes desks equipped with computers, there is even a lab area used for flipper-printing. On the adjacent side of the Police Station is the Club Penguin jail. The CPPD officers remand their criminals to this jail. It should be noted that the jail is poorly staffed, but has tight security measures in place which includes but is not limited to lasers. Despite the tight security, many criminals manage to escape because of the poor staffing. The average officer to criminal ratio is 2:10. On the upper level of the jail, one of the cells closest to the railing has an unusually large vent which is connected to a corridor leading to the lower floor. The corridor is often used as an escape route for inmates housed in that particular cell.
It should also be noted that the EPF is the primary law enforcement arm of Club Penguin; the CPPD is more of an auxiliary law enforcement arm of Club Penguin. It is unknown if the department has a chief of police or a director like the EPF has. The EPF and CPPD work together to combat crime. Each new recruit gets handcuffs to arrest criminals especially Robbers. The CPPD is significantly less advanced than the EPF is which renders the department futile in many situations Club Penguin is faced with. CPPD officers have less power than EPF agents, but both posses the power to arrest and uphold Club Penguin law and order. It is unknown if the CPPD is only being utilized for a provisional basis due to the influx of penguins and crime or will be a permanent agency for Club Penguin. CPPD officers are volunteers, they are not compensated a monthly salary as EPF Agents and Tour Guides are. CPPD's efforts to combat the vast amount of robbers have proven to be very futile. Some robbers wear a CPPD uniform to protect themselves against apprehension by the real CPPD officers and or the EPF. With all of this being said, the CPPD is an excellent agency that helps take some of the weight off the EPF. It is very important to know the Club Penguin Police Department is extremely understaffed and poorly managed. They also have a S.W.A.T like force, founded during the Marvel Super Hero Takeover 2013.
