Fire police exist in fourteen states of the United States including New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania and some other countries, such as Australia and New Zealand. They must take an oath of office and be sworn in by a magistrate, judge or justice of the peace. At fire service incidents, fire police assume the full powers of a police constable.
