Anti-Skill (警備員 (アンチスキル) Keibi-in (Anchi Sukiru), lit. Guard) is the term used to refer to Academy City's police and security forces. Unlike Judgment, members of Anti-Skill are ordinary adults who work in the city, with a lot of them also working as teachers. One is essentially a volunteer when they join Anti-Skill, and as such is not paid to do Anti-Skill work; however, the city compensates for Anti-Skill members' help in the experiment by giving them various gifts and privileges. Anti-Skill is often assigned to situations that members of Judgment are unable or not allowed to handle, such as engaging terrorists, handling hostage situations, or stabilizing dangerous areas. Judgment is often assigned to assist Anti-Skill in these cases by evacuating civilians or handling crowd control as well as dealing with rogue espers who abuse their powers. Anti-Skill assists Judgment with some of their work, and they are also tasked with training Judgment recruits.
Anti-Skill's authority extends outside Academy City, and it is basically the city's "official" armed forces. It has been revealed that many members of Anti-Skill are actually former soldiers hired by Academy City, and thus only took up teaching for appearance's sake.
