Bikini Bottom Police Force
The Bikini Bottom Police are a well organized police force. They have Police cars, trucks, planes, helicopters, Chevrolet Impalas, and some other realistic vehicles to use. They have many officers and bases. There is no cars parked here and the only person there is un-uniformed Anchovy officer. Although a door behind him is locked and the sound of phones and 911 emergencies can be inside. Their first appearance is in Hall Monitor, and didn't appear again until the episode: F.U.N.. They are seen in many, many other episodes. Most of the police are known to arrest people for strange reasons, like littering.
