Resident Evil Organizations (1/?): S.T.A.R.S.

The Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) is an elite special forces division founded in 1996 under the jurisdiction of the Raccoon City Police Department. It employs ex-military personnel and academic civilians for appropriate positions within the police department. The overall idea is to form a team combining tactically-sound soldiers with scientists, allowing the team to operate in both anti-terrorism and increasingly-potent urban crime.
