Cipher Pol is a series of secret agencies who do investigations, assassinations and espionage for the World Government.

Overview

The various Cipher Pol cells are stationed throughout the world and investigate for the World Government. They supplement the Intelligence Branch of the World Government's Marine forces, but seem to operate more as a counter-insurgency agency that also has more general law enforcement duties. They have some authority regarding recruitment for the Marines, even dealing with the Underworld for unique individuals. If they encounter pirates, they will apprehend them, but, as an agency, Cipher Pol seems to focus more on political threats to the World Government than more generic criminals.

There are eight official Cipher Pols that are numbered from CP1 to CP8, with two unofficial units named CP9 and CP0. In general (save the "zeroth" agency), the higher the Cipher Pol agency's number, the more important the tasks assigned to them.[2] Cipher Pol No. 9 has the license to kill any citizen that does not cooperate with the World Government or acts contrary to its interests. Because such a radical method of applying justice by the World Government should not be common knowledge, this group is a top secret organization.[3] CP0 is known to the public, but is different from the other units in that its members work directly as enforcers for the World Nobles, and thus are the strongest agency.

According to the Enies Lobby Arc, the official uniform for Cipher Pol agents is a black suit and fedora.

In order to exceed the limits of the human body, CP9 agents receive special training since their childhood. In order to become a full-fledged member of CP9, the agents must master a martial arts style that is called Rokushiki. The training also has somewhat of a mind-molding process so that Cipher Pol agents only learn how to be assassins and that this is their only profession. Rob Lucci, for example, was not capable of feeling gratitude or mercy.[4] Kaku, on the other hand, loved being a shipwright but was forced to leave it behind; he seemed to have shown regret at this decision,[5][6] but ultimately did not hold back when he was fulfilling his duties. The members received individual training, but they also trained together a lot.

The Five Elders have stated the Marines have no jurisdiction to interfere in operations that are conducted by the Cipher Pol.[7]

According to Monkey D. Dragon, their power has been growing in recent years.[8]
