There are several types of Wardens tasked to protect Piltover and it citizens:

  • Armaments: Elite Wardens designated in the Armaments Department are specially tasked in building and maintaining warden weapons and equipment. Chief Mechanist Zevi is one of its members.
  • Investigator: Wardens tasked to investigate and deduce what kind of a crime has been committed. They often collect information to solve crimes by talking to witnesses and informants, collecting physical evidence, or searching records in databases. This leads them to arrest criminals and enable them to be convicted in court.
  • Patrol: Wardens assigned to monitor specified areas in Piltover, to inspect their areas at regular intervals and watch for any signs of problems of any kind; these would be the wardens most commonly encountered by the public. Their duties include responding to calls for service, making arrests, resolving disputes, taking crime reports, conducting traffic enforcement, and other peace keeping measures. A patrol warden is often closest to potential crime and the first to arrive on the scene of any incident; what such a warden does or fails to do at the scene can greatly influence the outcome of any subsequent investigation. Warden Mir and Kepple are one of these patrol wardens.
  • Sheriff: Highest known position among the wardens, this is often an elected official who serves as the chief civil-law enforcement officer of their jurisdiction. The sheriff enforces court orders and mandates and may perform duties such as evictions, seizing property and assets pursuant to court orders, and serving warrants and legal papers.
  • SWAT: A special task group trained for the cities' most dangerous assignments, equipped with the most advanced arsenal of the Piltover Wardens.
