We can, so we will.
— Unofficial motto of the DCS.

The Department of Colonial Security or DCS was in charge of gathering intelligence on colonies for the CAA. It reported to Margaret Parangosky directly following ONI acquisition.[1]


The DCS was incorporated into the Office of Naval Intelligence by then-Captain Margaret Parangosky. Parangosky took over the DCS when the CAA "fell from grace" since no other agency wanted it and transformed it into a network of civilian spies.

The organization continued to exist under ONI all the way to 2553. [1]
