When Police Detective Peter McMurphy revealed to his superior officers that he was also the Champion of Justice named Fireforce, they chose to use the opportunity to form a special division of the Los Angeles Police Department with Officer McMurphy in charge. Agents without innate powers were granted access to power armor manufactured by Adam's Industries (based upon the power armor created for Fireforce) and given special training in super villain restraining equipment. The agents were also trained in using the better side of valor, knowing when the situation is beyond their capabilities and to call on heroes for help.

When that branch proved to be a success in Los Angeles, another branch opened in Chicago, head up by former Secret Service agent Jerry Johnson. This branch worked well with the local hero group and again proved to be a success. A third Strikeforce office opened in Washington DC, headed up by Fredrick Wyte. Houston and New Orleans followed suit, with several northeastern cities pooling their funds to centralize in Empire City.

One of President Mahn's last initiatives has been to bring the Strikeforce departments out of the local police powers and make them a single federal police force under the Parahuman Security Bureau. As such, several of the established branches were re-examined. A director was appointed (not McMurphy, much to several people's surprise) and expansions were underway. Said expansions continued even after Mahn's impeachment.

The director of Strikeforce has the formal title of Assistant Deputy of Strikeforce Operations withing the Parahuman Security Bureau. The individuals in charge of various districts are referred to as District Chiefs and the majority of them hold the rank of Captain. The agents in the Strikeforce rank-and-file hold the rank of Officer. Those agents that serve above Officers but answer to the Captains are Lieutenants or Sergeants.

The Mobile Specialist Team is not attached to a single district, but may be requested by any district chief (or sent by the director). The team commander holds the rank of Major (a rank shared by only Peter McMurphy), and is essentially the "district chief" for his team. This also means that, if needed, he can pull rank wherever the team is needed.

Beyond the specific Strikeforce personell listed below, each office has more than a dozen officers. Also, several other cities now have Strikeforce offices as well, but there has not been need to detail them. For example, Tucson, Seattle and St. Louis all now have Strikeforce branches as well.
