"This unit carries an authorized Imperial certification to hunt bounties. You have interfered with this unit and its partners."
"If you have a complaint, droid, file it with the Guild."
―Captivator and Alecia Beck[src]

An Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate (IPKC) was a license issued to bounty hunters by the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigation and the Bounty Hunters' Guild, certifying them to pursue such activities and allowing them access to the Imperial Enforcement DataCore, a network that contained information regarding the law enforcement activities of the Galactic Empire and its agents, for a fee at posting agencies.

DescriptionEdit

"Bossk. He's a Trandoshan, carries a mortar gun, flies a YV-series freighter…Why am I writing this down? You can read it all on his ID card, which I swiped!"
―Ezra Bridger listing information from Bossk's Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate in his private journal[src]

An Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate (IPKC) was a license[1] issued to bounty hunters[2] by the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigation and the Bounty Hunters' Guild,[4] certifying them to hunt bounties.[3] Each Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate had its own number, which could be requested by Imperial personnel. The license allowed its holder access to the Imperial Enforcement DataCore, a network that contained information regarding the law enforcement activities of the Empire and its agents whose use was limited to Imperial personnel and licensed bounty hunters only, at some posting agencies, offices where bounties were posted. Licensed hunters still had to pay a fee of fifteen credits an hour or twenty-five credits a day, however, to access the DataCore.[2]

The license itself was a rectangular[4] plastic[2] ID card, which had a picture of its holder and listed their name, species, height in meters, weight in kilograms, what weapons they were authorized to carry, and what vehicles they were authorized to pilot, along with the words "Licensed by the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigation and the Bounty Hunters Guild" and "ALL ACCESS", all written in High Galactic. Aurebesh writing decorated the card's background.[4]

HoldersEdit

"My name's Bossk. I'm a licensed bounty hunter. My Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate number is five-five-nine-four-six-one-one-two."
―Bossk[src]

One holder of an Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate was Bossk, a notorious Trandoshan bounty hunter whose Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate number was 55946112,[2] until it was stolen by Ezra Bridger,[4] a thief who Bossk had hired as a guide while pursuing a bounty on the planet Lothal,[2] who placed it in his private journal.[4] Bossk also had in his possession the license of a fellow Trandoshan bounty hunter named Mundokk, who Bossk claimed no longer needed the certificate.[2] The interstellar lawman-turned-bounty hunter Tam Posla was also an Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate holder,[1] as was the assassin droid Captivator and his team of bounty hunters.[3]
