Despite the name, police licenses are actually closer to letters of marque. Issued by the major governments of the Commonwealth, they grant the player the right to legally scan cargo, and issue a fixed bonus for kills scored against enemies of that government within their territory.

For unknown reasons, the Terrans do not offer a similar license.

A government with whom the player is licensed shows up in the "My Pilot Status" dialog with an [L] after the player's notoriety listing with said government. To obtain the license however, the play first needs to reach rank 5 in that race's notoriety ranking.

Police licenses are lost for taking hostile action against ships of that race inside their owned sectors. Lost licenses can simply be re-bought without penalty.

All the Commonwealth governments offer a police license. Each offers bonuses for kills scored against the Kha'ak, Pirates, Xenon, and Yaki. Issuing a police license costs a fee averaging 7,580 credits.
