The City defense force or ORMO was organized and is currently led by General Bohusz-Szyszko, Krakow's Police Prefect. The ORMO has the responsibility for keeping the several marauder bands in the surrounding area at bay, and for keeping the peace in Krakow. The ORMO wields the real political power in the city, since the General's decisions are the only ones that can be backed up by military authority. The ORMO answers only to Bohusz-Szyszko, never to Kutrzeba or the city council. The ORMO includes elite and veteran troops from the Polish 8th MRD, as well as novice and conscript from Krakow's civilian population. The veterans will be NCOs, Officers, and the older experienced soldiers and will account for approximately one-fourth of the ORMO.
