The Skyway Patrol acts as a global defense/ law enforcement group in the series. They are often seen harassing XJ-9 for "unauthorized" aviation. In one episode it is revealed that members of this organization often have to deal with literal mountains of paperwork in order to do virtually anything. This usually makes them more of a nuisance than a help. As a matter of fact, a jealous skyway patrol lieutenant wanted to convince the leader, General Hardscape, to have Jenny permanently shut down, only to succeed in being demoted to private. He kept trying to have Jenny shut down until, in A Spoonful of Mayhem, he succeeded in being fired from the force.
