Hello, Mike!
Sure why not!? The uniformed division could be a 'cover' for the secret police!.!.!.In a good way I'm hoping!.!.!.I've tried to write before but to no avail!.!.!.Maybe I just need some whiskey too!? Or is that your real last name!? Hee, hee! Just go with it i would say!? You can always change it if you should come up with another idea!.!.!.Good luck and happy writing!Www@QuestionHome@Com

It's a world you're creating, it's up to you to decide what is accurate and what isn't!.

However, if you want to compare it to real world examples!. No, it's not right!. It would be more realistic for the secret police to be a division of or related to a uniformed police!.

If you look at the Nazi terror mechanism the secret police, the Gestapo was a part of the SIPO, the security police and both came under the control of Heydrich's RSHA, the Reich Main Security Office whose role was to combat enemies of the Reich (political dissidents, Jews, resistance organisations etc)!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Sure, unless they are completely secret!. I mean, there should be someone in a uniform that can give press conferences and run the station, right!? Even the secret police need a uniformed spokesperson!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Futuristic secret police !?
Yeah seems to fit since if they are secret then they would not have a uniform with their name printed across!.
However you could make them a suspicious styled uniform but without letters just to add suspense!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

hmmm i say uniformed futuristic police are cool!. it sounds as if they are mysterious, so it would fit in really cool!. lol its really cool sounding keep it up and the characters will fit into plot!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think that being in uniform is rather conspicuous!.
Perhaps the uniform could be something normal, but specific!?
That way they would fit in, but still be able to recognize one another!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

They should be able to blend in but reconise eachother!. There dhould be one thing that they all wear like a watch or something!. I don't really know about your stor but it might work!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
