Federation Security agent

Federation Security was a department of the United Federation of Planets responsible for criminal investigations and police activity.

In 2285, after displaying bizarre behavior, Doctor McCoy was arrested by a Federation Security agent in San Francisco, and placed in a holding cell. McCoy was later broken out of their custody by his fellow Enterprise crewmates. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

In his text commentary on the DVD, Michael Okuda refers to this organization as civilian security despite their insignia. If so, it marks the only appearance of a 23rd-24th century police force operating on Earth aside from Starfleet in the prime reality. This also in contrast with "Paradise Lost", where after Sisko is made "head of Starfleet Security here on Earth" he is also described as "head of Earth Security", and generally is involved with Starfleet personnel performing security functions among the Earth civilian populace.
